The morning after the third and final debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton, a tenth (at least) woman came forward to accuse Trump of sexual assault. Along with other demeaning comments, he reportedly touched her breast and said to her, “don’t you know who I am?”.
Yoga instructor Karena Virginia held a press conference in where she emotionally told her story to a crowd of reporters with her attorney alongside her. The 45-year-old woman, with tears in her eyes, recalled her first encounter with Trump:
“I was quite surprised when I overheard him talking to the other men about me. He said, ‘hey look at this one. We haven’t seen her before. Look at those legs’, as though I was an object, rather than a person.”
She goes on to explain how Trump grabbed her right arm and touched her breast:
“I was in shock, I flinched. ‘Don’t you know who I am. Don’t you know who I am.’ That’s what he said to me.”

Virginia explains that she doesn’t typically talk about politics because she fundamentally believes “the light always wins.” However, last Friday she came forward in a Facebook post feeling “compelled to share from [her] heart” after a meditation session:
“I have spent time with Donald Trump. I have also spent moments with his wife. I have also been hit on by Donald Trump in a way that I do not want to write about on social media. I have seen the sadness in his wife’s eyes looking directly into mine on quiet evenings at a private golf course with her son’s innocence gazing over.
I choose Love. I trust that light in coming into our world. Need I say more.”
