... or so it’s beginning to seem.

Rape allegations against Christiano Ronaldo have led to EA Sports to drop the football player from all its branding.. Nike too, have “concerns” about their reputation being tarnished by association. On Friday, Juve’s share value dropped, due, it has been said, to their handling of the allegations.

In America, Brett Kavanagh, who’s appointment to the Supreme Court, has been dogged by similar allegations,is splitting the country down the middle..

... has the mob taken over the reigns of justice?

Hasn't it always been that way, no smoke without fire sort of thing. Maybe it shouldn't be reported until innocence or guilt have been decided.

Perhaps, but should that stop them taking big up a post?

Both Nike and EA Sports have sided with the allegations, instead of putting out a statement saying they would await the outcome of a judicial decision, not the noise of a mob, 99.9% of whom, don’t know the truth..

I've not read anything on the Ronaldo situation but how anybody can bring up something that happened 36 years ago when they were both teenagers and use it against them after serving an illustrious career is beyond me. The whole situation stinks from top to bottom and its been jumped on and hyped up by the anti Trump brigade. I personally feel the low depths that those who want Trump out sink to are just as bad if not worse than anything Trump may or may not have done.

""Other wise why pay for her silence ""

In the vain hope that it would all then quietly go away.

Well. Say you had a big job and a big reputation, lots of public dealings and at the same time you were accused of being a Paedo, or Rapist. You might try, if you think it would work, to buy your way out of trouble, should one of your accusers go public, or threaten to...... No?
Would you respond to blackmail in return for a quiet life, or perhaps dare to face the fanfare?

Why would I want to buy myself out of trouble if I hadn't gotten myself into trouble in the first place?

Ah! You will be happy to face the public storm of blame and denial that will follow any accusation, loss of face, reputation, job etc... well said sir!
