- E Jean Carrol is toasted by her friends in the media at a party in New York after her multi-million dollar defamation win over Donald Trump
- ‘She seemed delighted and vindicated, she was in awe and victorious,’ one guest reported
- But a backlash is growing on social media with some accusing her of ‘gloating’
- And it came as the former president began recruiting lawyers for his appeal
The celebrations continued for E Jean Carroll as MSNBC’s Molly Jong-Fast threw a celebrity party in her honor after her whopping $83.3 million defamation victory over Donald Trump.
The former Elle columnist was hailed as an ‘icon’ by a host of media power brokers at the exclusive Flower Shop bar in New York’s Lower-East Side.
Jong-Fast’s MSNBC colleague Lawrence O’Donnell was among those paying tribute alongside former Saturday Night Live producer Marci Klein, New York Times opinion writer Lydia Polgreen and Sarah Ellison of the Washington Post.
‘She seemed delighted and vindicated. She was in awe and victorious,’ one guest reported.
‘She looked like a hero. It’s great to see women winning the day,’ added another.
