As a national conversation on sexual misconduct is gripping the country from Hollywood to Capitol Hill, renewed attention has been focused on the sexual misconduct allegations against President Trump.  Over the years, more than 20 women have come forward accusing Trump of everything from a severe abuse of power to downright creepiness and unethical behavior.  Here is a list of the 20 most surreal and vile accusations to date.

Tasha Dixon was only 18 years old when she had an unsavory run-in with Donald Trump.  As the Former Miss Arizona was getting ready in dress rehearsal for a pageant, Dixon says that Trump “strolled right in” while the contestants were “half-naked and in a very physically vulnerable position.”  Worse yet, according to Dixon, the women were specifically told to “fawn all over him.”

She decided to go public with the story after hearing an old audio recording of Trump bragging to Howard Stern about going backstage at pageants while the contestants were naked or getting dressed.

In the audio recording, Trump can be heard saying;

“You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay?’” he continued. “And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.”

If for whatever reason people choose not to believe Tasha Dixon (as mentioned above), they need look no further than Bridget Sullivan to see a disturbing pattern.  Sullivan was crowned Miss New Hampshire in 2000 but publicly came out against Trump during the presidential campaign.

“The time that he walked through the dressing rooms was really shocking. We were all naked,” she told Buzzfeed in May 2016.

In the same audio recording to Howard Stern, Trump detailed his disgusting behavior further, saying;

“Before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” he said. “You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good.”

Karena Virginia was a New York-area yoga instructor at the time of alleged incident.  According to her, in 1998 outside of the U.S. Open tennis tournament she was waiting for her car to arrive when Trump approached her.

“He then walked up to me and reached his right arm and grabbed my right arm,” she said at a news conference in October 2016. “Then his hand touched the right inside of my breast.”

Virginia, who was 27 when the incident allegedly took place said she immediately flinched.  This prompted Trump to respond with, “Don’t you know who I am?”

Since coming out against Trump, Karena Virginia has reiterated her claims through her lawyer, Gloria Allred.  Coincidentally, Trump has a never released a statement or response to the allegation.

Temple Taggart was only 21-years-old when she participated in the Miss USA contest in 1997.  The former Miss Utah said that Trump, who owned the pageant the time, approached her and kissed her “directly on the lips.”

The allegation first came when she shared her story with The New York Times in May of 2016.

“He kissed me directly on the lips. I thought, “Oh my God, gross.” He was married to Marla Maples at the time. I think there were a few other girls that he kissed on the mouth. I was like “Wow, that’s inappropriate.”

Taggart also talked about how Trump thought that her being 21-years-old was simply too old.

“We’re going to have to tell them you’re 17,’ ” Ms. Taggart recalled Trump telling her, “because in his mind, 21 is too old. I was like, ‘No, we’re not going to do that.”

In 2003, Mindy McGillivray was working an event as a photographer’s assistant at Trump’s famous Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida when the unthinkable allegedly happened.   The story finally came out in October 2016.

Speaking to The Palm Beach Post, McGillivray said that Trump “grabbed her ass” as she was working the event.  The photographer who she was working with, Ken Davidoff, told the paper that he vividly remembers Mindy pulling him aside immediately after the incident to tell him what just happened.

Of course, the Trump campaign denies the story with then-Trump campaign spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, saying that McGillivray’s allegation “lacks any merit or veracity.”

Rachel Crooks, who worked as a secretary in Trump’s New York building said that when she first met Trump in 2005, he kissed her on the cheeks and then directly on the lips while outside an elevator at Trump Tower.  She was so shaken up by the incident that she immediately told her sister about the alleged unsavory encounter with Trump.

“It was so inappropriate,” Ms. Crooks recalled in an interview. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that.”

While Trump strongly denied these claims, let us not forget the words from his 2006 Access Hollywood tape that was leaked right before the election.

“I just start kissing them,” Mr. Trump said on the tape. “It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”

Cathy Heller first made her accusations public when she spoke to The Guardian newspaper.  The alleged incident took place during a Mother’s Day brunch at Mar-a-Lago.

Heller described the alleged incident in detail to The Guardian;

“He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips,” she claimed.

Alarmed, she said she leaned backwards to avoid him and almost lost her balance. “And he said, ‘Oh, come on.’ He was strong. And he grabbed me and went for my mouth and went for my lips.” She turned her head, she claims, and Trump planted a kiss on the side of her mouth. “He kept me there for a little too long,” Heller said. “And then he just walked away.”

“I was angry and shaken,” she continued. “He was pissed. He couldn’t believe a woman would pass up the opportunity.” She added that he seemed to feel “entitled” to kiss her.

As a writer for People Magazine, Natasha Stoynoff said that she was at Mar-a-Lago to interview Trump and Melania for their first wedding anniversary.  She alleges that when they took a break for the then-very-pregnant Melania to go upstairs and change her clothes, Trump wanted to show her around the mansion.  There was one “tremendous” room in particular, he just had to show her, he said.

Stoynoff recounts the details of what allegedly happened next in her article for People Magazine.

“We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.

Now, I’m a tall, strapping girl who grew up wrestling two giant brothers. I even once sparred with Mike Tyson. It takes a lot to push me. But Trump is much bigger — a looming figure — and he was fast, taking me by surprise and throwing me off balance. I was stunned. And I was grateful when Trump’s longtime butler burst into the room a minute later, as I tried to unpin myself.”
