Donald Trump Jr. sure seems to enjoy reveling in the latest accusations of inappropriate touching leveled at Democrat Sen. Al Franken. But for whatever reason, the president’s son has forgotten the multiple accusations made against his father.
Leave it up to Billy Baldwin to remind him of President Donald Trump‘s own “sexual impropriety allegations”—accusations of sexual harassment or assault made by as many as 16 women.
On Wednesday, Trump Jr. shared a HuffPost story on Twitter about two other women who had come forward saying Sen. Franken had groped them at political events in 2007 and 2008. They are the third and fourth women to say Franken touched them inappropriately. Trump Jr.’s tweet was short but celebratory, like the aristocracy to the peasants, telling his followers to “talk amongst yourselves.”

In response, Baldwin quoted Trump Jr.’s tweet with his own allegations of the president’s behavior toward his wife, singer Chynna Phillips of band Wilson Phillips. According to Baldwin, he was hosting a private party at a Trump Plaza hotel in the ’90s, when Trump busted in and tried to get Phillips, Baldwin’s girlfriend at the time, to fly away with him to Atlantic City.
“Your Dad is a 5th degree black belt when it comes to sexual impropriety allegations. In fact… I once had a party at the Plaza Hotel… your father showed up uninvited & hit on my wife… invited her on his helicopter to Atlantic City,” Baldwin tweeted. “She showed his fat ass the door.#TrumpRussia.”

According to the New York Daily News, the publication verified this claim with “a man who attended the party.” According to the source, Baldwin was hosting a private get-together for Phillips when Trump, who owned the hotel until 1992, knocked on the door. Baldwin’s party had about five people, who all grew uncomfortable once Trump entered the room and began targeting Phillips.
“Trump came barging in and started saying, ‘Let’s get in my helicopter, let’s blow this party and get out of here,'” the source said. “He tried to coerce her into getting in his helicopter. (Phillips) laughed uncomfortably at the prospect and said thanks but no thanks. When Trump realized it wasn’t a raging Hollywood party with strippers hanging from the roof, he left with his tail between his legs. He was in the room for maybe 10 minutes.”
The White House declined a request for comment from the Daily News.
