E. Jean Carroll’s comments during a media appearance, where she joked about using the funds from her defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump for personal expenses, sparked controversy and criticism.

Despite winning an $83.3 million verdict in the lawsuit, her remarks led to concerns about her credibility and the impact on real assault survivors.

Trump’s legal team plans to appeal the decision, and Carroll clarified her comments, emphasizing her intention to use the money for good causes.

“Yes, Rachel! Yes!” Carroll said. “I had such, such great ideas for all the good I’m gonna do with this money.”

“First thing, Rachel, you and I are gonna go shopping!” she said. “We’re gonna get complete new wardrobes, new shoes, motorcycle for [Carroll’s attorney Shawn] Crowley, a new fishing rod for Robbie [Carroll’s attorney Roberta Kaplan] — Rachel, what do you want? A penthouse? It’s yours, Rachel! Penthouse and France? You want France? You want to go fishing in France? No?”

The incident has attracted widespread attention and commentary, with many questioning the implications of Carroll’s statements.

“That’s a joke,” Carroll’s attorney cut in to say.

“If you needed any more proof this whole suit and verdict was a crock, here it is. And of course, Maddow still soaks it all up while not realizing how damaging this is,” Fox News’ Joe Concha said.

“Rough night for MSNBC,” Outkick founder Clay Travis said.

“This shows exactly what’s wrong with the justice system. You’re claiming the harm to your reputation was so bad you need millions to compensate for it, then you make these types of jokes. This also paints real assault survivors in bad lights and makes them seem money hungry. Absolutely disgusting,” Independent Women’s Forum spokesperson Paula Scanlan said.

“She’s a nutball,” The Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller wrote.

“Being in Law Enforcement and public safety for over 3 decades having worked special victims cases, this is not the mindset of a victim. No amount of money can ever make whole a true victim of sexual assault nonetheless make them giddy,” radio host Rob O’Donnell said.

“Deranged. Maddow served it up on a silver platter for E. Jean Carroll and she decided to be unhinged in her response,” conservative Steve Guest wrote.

“We talk about it a lot. We will do good with that money. We are going to do — Trump has suggested we turn Trump Tower into an animal sanctuary, for instance. That was a joke. That was a joke,” Carroll said. “But no, we are inspired to not waste a penny over this, and we have some good ideas we are working on.”
