So how did Donald Trump respond to today’s New York Times story featuring two women who said he groped them? He, um, denied it:
In a phone interview on Tuesday night, a highly agitated Mr. Trump denied every one of the women’s claims. “None of this ever took place,” said Mr. Trump, who began shouting at the Times reporter who was questioning him. He said that The Times was making up the allegations to hurt him and that he would sue the news organization if it reported them. “You are a disgusting human being,” he told the reporter as she questioned him about the women’s claims.
But he didn’t just threaten to sue once:

ZOMG! Can you imagine the discovery phase of this suit? Trump’s lawyers would lock him inside his own gold-plated bathroom to keep him from going through with it. But wait!
A lawsuit is being drafted now by Trump against the NYT. Very possible it could be announced tonight, though discussions ongoing.
