A New York makeup artist who accused Donald Trump of groping her in the 1990’s – and whose mortgage was paid off by a donor arranged by Gloria Allred daughter Lisa Bloom, repeatedly solicited then-candidate Trump to become his campaign makeup artist so she could pitch her new line of men’s cosmetics, according to The Hill‘s John Solomon. The story has to be true, because one couldn’t make it up if one tried.
In an October 1, 2015 email – Trump accuser Jill Harth emailed the President’s New York Company headquarters, writing:
“Hi Donald, you are doing a tremendous job of shaking things up in the United States. I am definitely on Team Trump as so many others are.”
“I can’t watch television without seeing you or hearing your name everywhere! It’s a good thing for sure but PLEASE let me do your makeup for a television interview, a debate, a photo session, anything!” Harth wrote, adding “It kills me to see you looking too orange and with white circles under the eyes. I will get your skin looking smoother and even toned.”
Harth also wrote to Trump that she would “sculpt your face” for optimal presentation on high-definition TV sets.
In another email, Harth attempted to meet with Trump in person, offering to be a campaign surrogate who would tell Trump voters how the future president “helped me with my self-confidence and all positive things about how he is with women.”

This latest bombshell comes on the heels of a report by Solomon and Alison Spann in The Hill over Trump accusers who were offered or taken money or other forms of compensation by attorney Lisa Bloom in connection with allegations of sexual misconduct – most of which coincidentally cropped up weeks before the 2016 election.
Harth, in particular, took a mortgage payoff and allowed Bloom to set up a GoFundMe account in her name. As ZeroHedge reported Saturday:
One client of Bloom’s who received money was Trump accuser Jill Harth, who filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against trump in 1997, but withdrew it after Trump settled a separate lawsuit from Harth and her boyfriend for alleged breach of contract when trump backed out of a business deal. After Bloom began representing Harth, she arranged for a donor to help Harth pay off her Queens, NY mortgage, which was recorded as extinguished on Dec. 19, 2016. Bloom also “arranged a small payment from the licensing of some photos to the news media, then set up a GoFundMe page for Harth’s benefit which raised a little over $2,300.
Harth maintains Bloom’s financial incentives had nothing to do with her decision to reignite her claims:
“Nothing that you’ve said to me about my mortgage or the Go Fund Me that was created to help me out financially affects the facts or the veracity of my 1997 federal complaint against Donald J. Trump for sexual harassment and assault,” Harth told The Hill.
In a lengthy response to The Hill, Harth explained “Well, a couple years of therapy helped me deal with Trump’s sexual attacks and the mind games he had played on me for more than a year and move on with my life. In 2015 I was very excited about a new men’s cosmetic product line that I had developed and needed a prominent spokesperson. And after discussions with my business associate she thought Donald Trump would be ideal.”
“I got no response so I abandoned the effort until I saw him on TV at a rally looking worse than ever. He looked like a clown with an orange face and white circles around his eyes. So, I sent another email volunteering to do his makeup for free. Still no response.” –Jill Harth
So, Harth claims Trump groped her in the 90’s in a lawsuit that was mysteriously withdrawn after Trump settled a separate lawsuit with Harth and her boyfriend. Then Harth went through “a couple years of therapy,” before approaching her alleged abuser for a job doing his makeup. After she received no response, Harth took a mortgage payoff and allowed Attorney Lisa Bloom to peddle her story to the country right before the 2016 election.
A totally believable chain of events.
Meanwhile, as the legitimacy of Trump accusers unravels, Bill O’Reilly went on Glenn Beck’s radio show last week to discuss what he claims is the existence of a tape showing a woman being offered $200,000 to accuse Donald Trump of ‘untoward behavior.’ O’Reilly told Beck that it relates to his own sexual assault case, and his lawyer who has listened to the tape says there are at least three crimes contained on it:
O’Reilly: There is a tape, Beck, an audio tape of an anti-Trump person offering $200,000 to a woman to accuse Donald Trump of untoward behavior.
Beck: Is this tape going to be released?
O’Reilly: I may have to go to the US Attorney myself. I don’t wanna have to do that and inject myself into the story, but I had my lawyer listen to the tape. He’s listened to it. There are at least three crimes on the tape. So as a citizen, I may have to do this.
Beck: I will tell you Bill, the first thing that you say – well I’m trying to get it, I’m trying to get it so it can be released. You weren’t talking about getting it for YOU to release it, but it had to be out there. And I think the first time I said to you, I mean, if they don’t – you’ve gotta bring it to the US Attorney.
O’Reilly: Again, it’s in the hands of someone who knows the seriousness of the situation.
Beck: What is their hesitancy?
O’Reilly: You know, I can’t really get into that at this point. But I can tell you that Donald Trump knows about the tape. And I’m, for the life of me, sitting here going “Why on earth are you allowing a movement to try to smear you when you have a powerful – and I mean it’s powerful – piece of evidence that shows that this is an industry. That there are false charges and money changing hands.” It’s so frustrating but I wanted your listeners to know it, it’s there, it’s amazing, and it will change the whole discussion if it ever gets out.
Well, it does seem that the whole discussion has changed in the last week thanks to John Solomon, Alison Spann and The Hill.
