As we previously reported, the reality TV vet has gotten himself into a serious PR nightmare as he was caught making degrading comments about women in a leaked tape from a 2005 Access Hollywood segment. Oof.
However, following the tape controversy, D.T. attempted to defend his lewd remarks by labeling them as “locker room talk” and told Anderson Cooper during the second presidential debate that he never actually grabbed women without their consent.
Unsurprisingly, several women have already refuted the Celebrity Apprentice star’s claims by sharing their misogynistic experiences with the controversial celeb. Hmm, go on.
On Wednesday, People writer Natasha Stoynoff opened up about a 2005 incident where she claims the businessman forcibly kissed her without consent. How awful.
Miz Stoynoff started off her account of what transpired between herself and the now 70-year-old by explaining that she used to cover the Trump beat for the gossip magazine and how in December 2005 she was sent down to Donald’s Mar-a-Lago hotel to do an anniversary piece on the GOP nominee and his then pregnant wife Melania Trump.
Allegedly, when Miz Trump went upstairs to change for a photo shoot, the New York native forced himself on the seasoned journalist. Natasha shared:
“We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.”
Ugh. And apparently Mr. Trump wanted more than a kiss from Stoynoff as he reportedly told the People writer:
“‘You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?’ he declared, in the same confident tone he uses when he says he’s going to make America great again. ‘Have you ever been to Peter Luger’s for steaks? I’ll take you. We’re going to have an affair, I’m telling you.’ “
Smh. Not long after this ordeal, Trumpster’s butler burst in to announce Melania’s return from changing and they returned to the interview as if nothing happened. Obviously, the reporter was in shock from the situation and tried to power through her experience as she even let the magazine go on with the story even after she told her managing editor about what had occurred. Although she asked to be removed from the Trump beat.
Nonetheless, after hearing Donald’s words to Billy Bush, Natasha realized what had happened was not her fault. She concluded:
“I’m not sure what locker room talk consists of these days. I only know that I wasn’t in a locker room when he pushed me against a wall. I was in his home, as a professional, and his beautiful pregnant wife was just upstairs. Talk is talk. But it wasn’t just talk in my case, it was very much action. And, just for the record, Mr. Trump, I did not consent.”
Well said. Unfortunately, Trump’s camp is now refuting this allegation as they noted in a statement:
“This never happened. There is no merit or veracity to this fabricated story.”
What do YOU think? Is Natasha telling the truth?
SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!
