Last week, a federal jury ordered former President Donald Trump to pay sexual assault accuser E. Jean Carroll $83.3 million in damages in her defamation suit against him.

The jury decided Trump was not liable for the accusation of sexual assault but was liable for sexual abuse and defamation based on comments he made in denying he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s.

On Monday, Carroll told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow she intended to go on a shopping spree with the money she was awarded from Trump.

And Carroll’s lawyer appeared nervous by her comments.

We’re Going Shopping!

MSNBC’s Maddow cited previous remarks Carroll made suggesting that any money she would receive from Trump would go directly to “help shore up women’s rights.”

Maddow asked her. “Do you know what that might be, what that might look like?”

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

Fox News reported:

“First thing Rachel, you and I are gonna go shopping!” she then exclaimed. “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?”

As Maddow chuckled at Carroll’s proposal, Crowley awkwardly grinned and said, “That’s a joke.”

“Although if me fishing in France could do something for women’s rights. I would take the hit. I would take one for the team,” Maddow joked. 

In a separate interview on Monday, Carroll said would use the money on something Trump “hates.”

Carroll: ‘It’s Now About Fighting for All Women’

In that interview, Carroll said it was time to move past herself and her case and focus on fighting Trump on policy and more.

“It’s now about fighting for all women,” she said. “We’re also fighting, and we salute the women and men who have been assaulted and who did not survive. We are doing this for women around the country, who have been knocked down repeatedly. So it’s really not about me anymore.”

“We have moved beyond me,” Carroll said.

“And as you say, the fight now is really to take back our future,” she added. “This is a man who stacked the Supreme Court, took away women’s rights over their own bodies.”

“We would like to be a part of turning our eyes to the future and taking back our rights,” Carroll finished.
