That’s because Gloria Allred herself continued her crusade against the sexist would-be statesman in a press conference where yet another a former Apprentice contestant accused the former reality TV host of sexual misconduct.
Summer Zervos was the first person eliminated from The Apprentice‘s fifth season in 2006, but her alleged sexual assault didn’t take place until after production had wrapped in 2007!
According to Summer’s sworn statement, she had planned a follow-up dinner meeting with Mr. Trump after her season had aired. However, when he instead invited her back to his bungalow, the now-40-year-old claims his introductory kisses at the Beverly Hills Hotel weren’t even the worst of what she experienced, saying:
“I waited for about 15 minutes until Mr. Trump emerged [from his bedroom]. He had his suit on. I stood up and he came to me and started kissing me open mouthed as he was pulling me towards him. I walked away and sat down on a chair. He was on a love seat across from me and I made an attempt at conversation. he then asked me to sit next to him. I complied. He then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast. I pulled back and walked to another part of the room. He then walked up, he grabbed my and walked me into the bedroom.
I walked out. He then turned me around and said, ‘Let’s lay down and watch some telly telly.’ He put me in an embrace and I tried to push him away. I pushed his chest to put space between us and I said come on man, ‘Get real.’ He repeated my words back to me, ‘Get real,’ as he began thrusting his genitals. He tried to kiss me again and with my hand still on his chest, I said, ‘Dude, you’re trippin’ right now,’ attempting to make it clear that I was not interested. He said, ‘What do you want?’ I said, ‘To have dinner.’ He said, ‘Okay, we will have dinner.’ He paced around the room. He acted like he was a bit angry.”
Vile. Just vile.
While that was the extent of the alleged assault, Donald couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share some of his tax evading tactics while hitting on her, of course.
And in a shocking twist, Summer never actually got a job with The Trump Organization… and she thinks it’s because she refused to sleep her way to the top!
Thank you for you bravery, Summer.
