An adult entertainer has become the 11th woman to come forward, accusing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. Jessica Drake blasted Trump in a press conference Saturday for his "uncontrollable misogyny" and being "a sexual assault apologist." She said Trump in 2006 offered her $10,000 and use of his private jet in exchange for sex, but she turned down the offer. Drake said she had met Trump at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe while she was working for an adult film company, Wicked Pictures. "He flirted with me and invited me to walk along the golf course with him, which I did," Drake said at the conference alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred. "Later that evening, he invited me to his room. I said I didn’t feel right going alone, so two other women came with me. In the penthouse suite, I met Donald again. When we entered the room, he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission." Drake left, returning to her room. But later that night, she received a phone call from a man calling on Trump's behalf, asking her to come back. "I indicated that I did not wish to return. Then Donald called. He asked me to return to his suite and have dinner with him. He also invited me to a party. I declined. Donald then asked me, 'What do you want? How much?' I told him that I couldn’t. "After that, I received another call from either Donald or a male calling on his behalf, offering me $10,000. I declined again, and once more gave as an excuse that I had to return to Los Angeles for work. I was then told Mr. Trump would allow me the use of his private jet if only I accepted his invitation." "This is not acceptable behavior for anyone — much less a presidential candidate," Drake said. When Drake and Trump met, the candidate was married to his third and current wife Melania. His campaign has denied Drake's account — as well as the accounts of 10 other women who have accused the Republican nominee of misconduct. "This story is totally false and ridiculous. The picture is one of thousands taken out of respect for people asking to have their picture taken with Mr. Trump," the campaign said. "Mr. Trump does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her. This is just another attempt by the Clinton campaign to defame a candidate who just today is number one in three different polls. Anyone who would pay thugs to incite violence at a rally against American citizens, as was released on video, will stop at nothing. Just another example of the Clinton campaign trying to rig the election." And at a rally Saturday in Gettysburg, Trump vowed to sue his accusers, though he didn't mention Drake's allegations directly. "Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign," Trump told a crowd of supporters. "Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over."
The Foreman Forecast: Trump's third strike
The final votes have yet to be cast and Donald Trump may yet pull out a victory in the presidential contest, but the score for the debates is easy to see: Hillary Clinton 3, Donald Trump 0. I suspect his ardent fans would like Ann Coulter to chase me down the street with a Louisville Slugger for saying that, but it’s not even a close call. Through all three of these matchups, Clinton steadily took bases while he committed one error after another. Oh sure, he had “at bats.” Trump was on firm...
For Trump, challenging an election loss would be tough
If Donald Trump were to challenge the outcome of next month's presidential election, as he has hinted he might, he would face a difficult and expensive fight, according to election attorneys and a review of voting laws in key battleground states. Trump has said he is worried the Nov. 8 election might be rigged in favor of his opponent, Hillary Clinton, and in Wednesday's debate he refused to say he would accept the outcome. But before any court challenge, Trump probably would have to ask for a...
Watch Trump and Clinton trade barbs at the Al Smith Dinner
The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, named for former New York Governor Al Smith, the first Catholic presidential candidate, is a white tie affair that raises money for Catholic charities that help needy children. The speeches are typically kept light, but GOP nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton threw a few elbows on Thursday night. Trump began his time at the dais by comparing himself to the son of God, saying he was just another...
Trump, Clinton tension seeps into jokes at annual charity dinner

Donald Trump says he will accept election results — if he wins
At a rally in Delaware, Ohio, Thursday, Donald Trump promised to accept the results of the looming election — on his terms. "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States, that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election —if I win," Trump said. When questioned last night by debate moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News if he would accept the election results, Trump said he would look at...

Bad hombres, puppets and nasty women: Check out the best memes from last night's debate
Last night's debate was supposed to touch on serious and sensitive issues: the Supreme Court, immigration, relations with Russia and the economy. It did, briefly, but it also spawned a slew of online jokes, from Trump's "bad hombres" to crying Putin. Bad Hombres. Trump reintroduced his infamous wall (which, according to his campaign strategist in August, the candidate was wavering on) in Wednesday's debate, and explained how strong borders will curb drug trade. "We have some bad hombres here, and we’re going to get them out," Trump said, botching the pronunciation for the Spanish word for "man." And just like that, a meme was born:
