An upcoming episode of Law and Order: SVU will feature a Donald Trump-like character accused of rape, inspired by a dubious civil lawsuit filed against Trump by “Jane Doe.”
Actor Gary Cole will portray a “wealthy and boorish man who makes a run for the White House” on an upcoming SVU episode entitled “Unstoppable” according to Variety.
The plot of the episode will be based on a dubious civil lawsuit filed against Donald Trump by a woman, referred to as “Jane Doe” in court documents, who alleges Trump raped her when she was 13 years old in the mid-1990s.
The lawsuit, presided over by judge appointed by Obama, is scheduled for a hearing in December – after the presidential election.
The episode was reportedly scheduled to air as the second episode of the show’s 18th season, which premiered September 21. However, “adjustments” made to the episode caused issues with the actors and writers, pushing the premiere date to October 26.
Access Hollywood, the source of a highly edited audio recording depicting Trump making lewd comments about women, also airs on NBC, as did Trump’s popular show Celebrity Apprentice.
The decision to depict a character identical to Donald Trump accused of raping women is a concerted ploy to manipulate the people who watch the episode into conflating a fictitious story with reality and conclude Trump is actually a rapist.
