Why Jessica Leeds' story that Trump groped her is not believable

Women are coming out of the woodwork, accusing Donald Trump of having groped them.
One of them is Jessica Leeds, who is 74 years old and lives in Manhattan.

As reported by the New York Times — the newspaper that has endorsed Hillary Clinton for POTUS and whose columnists ask Google to hide search results on Hillary Clinton’s failing health and urge journalists to abandon objectivity in reporting on Trump — Leeds claims that when she was 38, divorced and living in Connecticut, she was on a business trip (for the paper company she worked for) to New York, and sat next to Trump in the first class cabin.
45 minutes after takeoff, Trump lifted up the  armrest, grabbed her breasts, and tried to put his hand up her skirt. Leeds said, “He was like an octopus. His hands were everywhere. It was an assault.” She fled to the back of the plane.
Since Leeds is now 74, and the groping incident was when she was 38, that would make it the year 1980.
Here are the reasons why we should be skeptical about Jessica Leeds’ story:
(1) The armrests in 1980 commercial planes’ first class cabins do not “lift.” A commenter on Reddit points out:

“The two planes that most likely would’ve been used in the 80’s were the 737 and the 767 (Majority 737). If you look up ‘737 First class’ and ‘767 first class’, BOTH of them have arm rests that do not move. Look at the picture… She claims that he reached up her skirt. Do you know how difficult and awkward it would be to reach around that giant arm rest? Don’t you think ONE person would notice?”

Here’s a picture of first class cabin seats in 1980:

(2) Jessica Leeds has a pro-Hillary agenda:
In the New York Times article, Leeds said she will vote for Hillary Clinton.
Leeds is also connected to two big Hillary supporters, Julie Kleszczewski and Diane Daniels, via an organization called Altrusa International.
Altrusa International, Inc. describes itself as a volunteer organization of “civic minded people who are interested in creating better communities. Last year, Altrusans proudly gave over a million volunteer hours around the world, including clubs in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, England, Bermuda, Ireland, India, Scotland, New Zealand and Russia.” Altrusa’s causes include literacy, HIV/AIDS, and disaster relief.
Jessica Leeds is presently the Director of Altrusa International District Two and Altrusa International of New York, NY.
(a) Julie Kleszczewski:

Julie Kleszczewski‘s LinkedIn profile says she is Altrusa International’s UN NGO Representative since 2002. In that capacity, she represents “Altrusa International at United Nations DPI/NGO Briefings, reporting, being involved in other committees at the UN and giving international workshops.”
Kleszczewski is mentioned in a Feb. 6, 2008 New York University journalism article, “Walk On By,” as “a [Hillary] Clinton volunteer attempting to distribute flyers to voters exiting the Union Square subway station“. On her Facebook page, Kleszczewski has a selfie of herself with Hillary Clinton, with this comment, “I met Candidate Hillary Clinton at AL and ALA National Convention in Cincinnati Ohio, Wednesday, August 31, 2016. How exciting to meet her again”:

Here are some hilarious comments by Trump supporters on Kleszczewski’s Facebook page:

(b) Diane Daniels:
According to a screenshot posted to 4chan, Jessica Leeds, Julie Kleszczewski, and Diane Daniels were, respectively, the secretary and officers of Altrusa International’s New York Club in 2014-15.

Diane Daniels had worked for a Hillary Clinton superPAC, Ready For Hillary, which was created in January 2013 to draft Hillary to run for President in 2016. Among the supporters of Ready For Hillary was George Soros.

(3) Eyewitness contradicts Leeds’ account:
anthony-gilberthorpe
A male eyewitness, a 54-year-old British man named Anthony Gilberthorpe, said he was sitting across the first class aisle from Leeds and Trump on that flight in 1980, and saw nothing inappropriate. In a note provided to the New York Post, Gilberthorpe said Leeds was wearing a white pantsuit, while Trump was wearing a suit and cuff-links. Gilberthorpe said he did not see Trump grope Leeds; on the contrary, Leeds was the one desperately flirting with Trump to get his attention:

“I have only met this accuser once and frankly cannot imagine why she is seeking to make out that Trump made sexual advances on her. Not only did he not do so (and I was present at all times) but it was she that was the one being flirtatious.”

Gilberthorpe even issued a challenge to Leeds:

“I will go to head to head with her — I will meet her again. I will see her eyes across the table with my eyes and I will challenge her on the points she made. And I’ll tell you what, I would do this whether it was for Trump, for Clinton, for Obama, or for any man who’s been accused of sexually molesting someone when I know he did not.”

Given all the above — the fixed armrests of first class cabin seats in airlines; Jessica Leeds’ self-profession that she will vote for Hillary Clinton; Leeds’ association with two Altrusa International club officers who are avid Hillary supporters; eyewitness testimony that contradicts Leeds — we have good reasons to be skeptical about Leeds’ story that Donald Trump groped her on a flight to New York in 1980.

That’s why it’s called the ” OCTOBER SURPRISE ” …..but it’s only a surprise to the uninformed or those who have no memory of elections past

The Herman Cain playbook. HRC’s team isn’t very original…

For some reasons liberals would sell their soul to be associated with a couple that would, if not be deadly, substantly increase the likelihood of misfortune.
Can’t wait to see this bimbo after she comes out from under the bus wheels.

Excellent job on the details re those other lady friends of Jessican Leeds! Shoulda known, being in NY, that the UN/NGOs would fit in there somehow! I hope Gilberthorpe’s info doesn’t backfire on Trump. He said Leeds wore a white pantsuit, but she told the NYTimes (which I checked to make sure) that she was wearing a skirt & that Trump had put his hand up her skirt (& around the large armrest, lol, as you confirmed would be near impossible without having to contort his very large body). Gilberthorpe also has a shady past when he was younger related… Read more »

besides, the actual story is identical to another hoax that came out a few years ago, besides being lyrics to a Velvet Underground song…

What is MOST pathetic and disturbing is that the campaign for ” the first woman president” is not embracing the “feminist” canon of equality that Hillary yammers on about all the time, but rather plays the gender card, using all the old “female as helpless sexual object and victim” and male as predator %^&*. Pathetically as each ” victim of sexual assault” is debunked what remains is a group of duplicitous, fraudulent, lying, willing to do anything harpies creating doubt that women are up to the task of becoming leader of the Free World. This is a blow to the… Read more »

Thank you for your painstaking research, Dr. Eowyn. On a subject like this it is a big help.

I am so glad Dr Eowyn, that you have given us this article to counter the vicious lies being spread by Killary and her crew. It truly is great to know that in 1980 the arm rests were fixed on those aircrafts. Judging from Ms Leeds picture with Killary, she looks like a very old woman (I am judging against my looks, and I am 70.) Trump is still a relatively good looking man, and I will just bet that Ms Leeds was bustin’ her buttons to get his attention. There is a scripture (for the life of me I… Read more »

Wikkileaks’ PodestaEmails#7 (6?) show that liberal skank, Gloria Alred was primed back in May 2016, to emerge in support of the false sexual abuse allegations which were pre-planned by Hillary’s campaign. The NYT should be careful what it wishes for.

Aw yes, Allred, a Clinton delegate. No conflict there.
Their desperation is so obvious, they are recycling past plots to destroy political opponents.
She should be disbarred.
