Former President Donald Trump has been held accountable for sexual assault and defamation, resulting in a court order for him to pay author E. Jean Carroll $5 million. However, a curious Facebook post by Carroll, the accuser, could potentially aid Trump’s appeal in the case.
According to an April 22, 2012, Facebook post that surfaced over the weekend, Carroll wrote: “Two many good TV shows on Sunday Night! My God! What do YOU watch?”
She went on to say she was “a MASSIVE fan” of Trump’s “The Apprentice” program.
The unearthed post led many to question how she could claim that Trump raped her but also be a “massive fan” of his former top-rated TV show.
“This seems like a perfectly normal thing to say given the accusations?!? Unless, of course, the accusations were totally fabricated and made up recently as a political hit job,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted along with a screenshot of Carroll’s Facebook posts.

It’s possible to be a fan of the show and still have experienced an assault by the host of said program, but her enthusiasm left many social media users scratching their heads.
“Massive Apprentice Fan???? How are you a fan of the show who’s star is DJT? You know, the one you said (raped) you all those years ago??? I hope our amazing POTUS sues your ass for everything you have. You are a disgrace to women who are true victims of sexual assault. Who put you up to this???” one person said three years ago.
“Massive Apprentice Fan!!!! Let’s see if you will delete your post!!!” added another.
“Why are you a fan of a guy that supposedly raped you?” another incredulous person noted.
“A “MASSIVE” Apprentice fan???????? You slapped the faces of true rape victims, you fraud!!!” one woman said.
“A MASSIVE APPRENTICE FAN??? WHY WOULD YOU BE A FAN OF A SHOW OF A MAN YOU WOULD YEARS LATER ACCUSE OF RAPE? YOU ARE A FRAUD AND I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU CAN LIVE WITH YOURSELF. YOU ARE HURTING ALL TRUE SURVIVORS. I HOPE HE SUES YOU BACK AND WINS!” another posted in all caps.
“I’ve never been raped but I don’t know if I would like the TV show hosted by my rapist,” another person said.
Reports have said that Trump is planning to appeal the ruling against him in Carroll’s case.
