A sexual predator has no business running for president
Under intense questioning from CNN’s Anderson Cooper in the second presidential debate on October 9, Donald Trump categorically denied ever sexually assaulting women. That was the straw that broke the camel’s back for many of his accusers.
Since then, 12 women — all white females — have come forward accusing Trump of forcibly kissing them, fondling their breasts, grabbing their genitals, and forcing himself on them.
The accusations date back from the late 1970’s to 2007.
The accusers include a passenger on a plane, a contestant on The Apprentice, and contestants in the “Miss USA” and “Miss Teen USA” pageant.
Roselyn Sanchez Bows Out as Miss USA Co-Host After Donald Trump’s Anti-Immigrant Speech
Roselyn Sanchez, the Puerto Rican singer/actress and star of Lifetime’s Devious Maids, has bowed out as co-host of the Miss USA pageant, citing Donald Trump’s comments in his June 16 presidential-bid speech.
“I was very excited and proud to have been invited to participate in Miss USA, but as a Latina, that is now inconceivable,” Sanchez said in a statement.
“Although I am not Mexican, I am Puerto Rican and a proud Latina, and his comments were an insult to our culture.
I won’t sponsor anything produced by Donald Trump.”

Sanchez is the latest Latin artist to raise her voice in protest following Trump’s speech, in which he referred to Mexican and Latin American immigrants as criminals and rapists.
Following rock band’s Maná very public denouncement of the speech during a Los Angeles show, Colombian star J Balvin canceled his Miss USA performance. It would have been his first mainstream TV performance in the U.S.
Early on in his speech, Trump said: “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably — probably — from the Middle East.”
Sanchez, herself a former beauty queen (she won Miss Puerto Rico Petite and Miss America Petite), played FBI agent Elena Delgado on Without a Trace and now plays Carmen Luna on Devious Maids.

The list of those dropping out of any gigs that have to do with the Miss USA pageant is getting longer.
Actress and Latin beauty Roselyn Sanchez is one of the latest to voice her disconcern with Donald Trump following his anti-immigrant speech, and subsequently announced that she will no longer serve as a co-host for the Spanish-language simulcast of Miss USA alongside actor Cristian De La Fuente, who also pulled out, along with Univision.
The largest Spanish-language broadcaster has decided to not air Donald Trump’s annual Miss USA pageant next month due to the presidential candidate’s recent comments on immigration.
“Today the entertainment division of #Univision Communications Inc. announced that it is ending the Company’s business relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which is part-owned by Donald J. Trump, based on his recent, insulting remarks about #Mexican #immigrants.
At Univision we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country.
We will not be airing the #MissUSApageant on July 12 or working on any other projects tied to the Trump #Organization.”
Outspoken billionaire Donald Trump remained true to form during his presidential announcement speech Tuesday, delivering a rambling 30-minute talk that touched on a multitude of subjects, including jobs, immigration and wealth — but mostly China and Mexico.
