AFP: The woman whom Donald Trump was found liable of sexually assaulting faced off with the former president Wednesday in a New York courtroom to say he subsequently ruined her reputation.
E. Jean Carroll, 80, is seeking more than $10 million alleging that Trump defamed her in 2019, when she first made her assault allegations public, by saying she “is not my type.” “It means I’m too ugly to assault,” Carroll told the court. Asked about how the comment damaged her reputation, Carroll said “previously I was known simply as a journalist, and now I’m known as a liar, a fraud, and a whack job” — quoting insults leveled at her by the 2024 White House hopeful.
There were tense moments in court as Carroll gave evidence just a few rows away from where Trump sat. Carroll’s legal team complained that Trump was making audible comments about her evidence and that jurors could be influenced, CNN reported. The judge in the civil case asked that Trump lower his voice when conferring with his legal team.
