Trump on Accuser Jessica Drake: 'Oh, I'm Sure She's Never Been Grabbed Before'
On Monday, Donald Trump dismissed the 11 women who have alleged the Republican nominee engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with them, sarcastically offering that he’s sure the most recent accuser, adult film actress Jessica Drake, has “never been grabbed before.”
"These are stories that are made up, these are total fiction,” Trump said in an interview with WGIR radio's "New Hampshire Today," as CNN’s KFile reports. “You’ll find out that, in the years to come, these women that stood up, it was all fiction. They were made up. I don't know these women, it's not my thing to do what they say. You know I don't do that. I don't grab them, as they say, on the arm.”
"One said, 'he grabbed me on the arm’—and she's a porn star,” Trump continued. “You know, this one that came out recently, 'he grabbed me and he grabbed me on the arm.’”
“Oh, I'm sure she's never been grabbed before," Trump added. "It's all lies, it's all lies, it was made up. It's like dripping water.”
Trump may claim he doesn’t grab women by their arms, but he did 'fess up to grabbing them "by the pussy,” at least according to a 2005 video tape released earlier this month. And, just in case it has to be said, a woman’s profession as an adult film star doesn’t justify touching her—anywhere—without her consent.
