VICTIM-BLAMING

Trump Suggests Gretchen Carlson Should’ve Just ‘Found Another Career’

In newly published remarks, Donald Trump suggested to USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers that alleged victims of sexual harassment by former Fox News chief Roger Ailes should have just left the network. “I would like to think she would find another career or find another company if that was the case,” Trump told Powers in response to a question about how his daughter Ivanka would have reacted under similar alleged harassment by Roger Ailes or another employer. Ailes resigned from Fox News almost two weeks ago after former anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit alleging repeated sexual harassment, and a subsequent investigation by 21st Century Fox reportedly found more female employees who have experienced such behavior.
