Let's face it. The guy's a pig. A pig who thinks that when you're a "star," it's okay to grope women and kiss them without their consent, that it's not sexual assault. Wrong. But there may be one faint silver lining from all this -- and naturally, it has nothing to do with Trump himself.

I knew several things. That I would finally meet my sister. And finally, confirmation of what I had known for two decades: my sister was also sexually abused by our father.
