In Trump Rape Trial, a Lawyer Pushes and E. Jean Carroll Pushes Right Back

From a New York Times story by Lola Fadulu headlined “In Trump Trial, a Lawyer Pushes, and E. Jean Carroll Pushes Right Back”:

Even the greeting was tense.

“Good morning, Ms. Carroll,” Joseph Tacopina, the lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump, said to E. Jean Carroll on Thursday as he prepared to cross-examine her.

Ms. Carroll simply stared at him. He repeated himself.

“Good morning,” Ms. Carroll finally replied.

“There you go,” Mr. Tacopina responded.

Thus began nearly two days of questioning during the trial in Manhattan federal court of Ms. Carroll’s civil suit, which accuses Mr. Trump of raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the mid-1990s.
