The latest episode of Law and Order SVU season 18 is a Donald Trump-inspired one. The episode entitled Unstoppable is a story about a womanizer politician played by Gary Cole.
He has an eye for a seat in the White House. But that dream takes an upsetting turn when multiple women throw sexual assault accusations at him. The politician is heard saying, “I’m a handsome, charming millionaire and women throw themselves at me,” as reported by Entertainment Weekly.
Law and Order SVU Season 18 Unstoppable Episode Line Same as Actual Trump interview?
The publication also reports that the line stated is similar to what Trump said in an interview on Access Hollywood last 2005. “I just start kissing [women],” Trump can be heard saying. “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. … Grab them by the p‑‑‑y. You can do anything.”
The tape was leaked early last October that later on hurt the presidential candidate’s survey ratings. Also because of the video, multiple women surfaced accusing the business tycoon of sexual assaults. Trump dismissed the accusations and described the tape as ‘locker room banter’.
The Law and Order SVU season 18 Unstoppable was first scheduled to air on October 26. The episode’s air date has been moved several times. But NBC’s recently announced the air date on November 16, one day after the election day.
The Daily Beast’s Marlow Stern had a discussion with the SVU creator Dick Wolf. Wolf claimed that the episode Unstoppable is not inspired by Trump ‘’albeit a wink and a smile,’’ as observed by The Daily Beast writer.
Law and Order SVU season 18 airs every Wednesday at 9pm E.T on NBC.
