On Wednesday, four women accused Donald Trump of various acts of sexual misconduct.
The incidents took place over the course of several decades and in widely varying locales and circumstances.
But they all had one thing in common:
In each scenario, the world-famous real estate magnate and current Republican presidential nominee allegedly groped, fondled, and forced himself upon these women without consent or even a moment’s hesitation.
