During last night’s debate, Donald Trump was on the defensive again when Hillary Clinton slammed him for his response to allegations of sexual misconduct.
“Well at the last debate, we heard Donald talking about what he did to women and after that a number of women have come forward saying that’s exactly what he did to them, ” Clinton said.
“Now what was his response? Well, he held a number of big rallies where he said he could not have perhaps done those things to those women because they are not attractive enough.”
“I did not say that, ” Trump interrupted.
However, the Republican nominee did say that.
At a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, Trump intimated that Jessica Leeds, a woman who accused him of groping her on an airplane in the early 1980 s, was not attractive enough to have depicted his sexual interest.
I was with Trump in 1980. I was sitting with him on an airplane and he went after me on the plane, he said, taunting her voice.
Yeah, Im gonna go after her, he said. Believe me, she would not be my first choice. That I can tell you. You dont know. That would not be my first choice.
“When you looked at that horrible girl last night, you said ‘I dont think so. I dont think so, ” Trump continued. “Whoever she is, wherever she comes from, the stories are total fiction. They are 100 percentage made up. They never happened. They never would happen. I dont think it happened with very many people, but they surely arent gonna happen with me.
Trump also assaulted former People magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff, who claimed Trump forcibly kissed her in 2005 at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
Shes a liar. She is a liar, he said. Shes writing a narrative check out her Facebook page, youll understand.
You take a look. Looking at her. Seem at her terms. You tell me what you think. I dont think so.
At another rally, Trump suggested that Clinton had invaded his space during the second debate. He also said that “when she strolls in front of me I wasn’t impressed”, as reported by Politico .
Even Trumps attorney, Michael Cohen, utilized the debate that those women were not pretty enough for the Republican hopeful to sexually assault them.
Beauty is in the eye of beholder these arent even girls hed be attracted to, Cohen said. I think what Mr. Trump is actually trying to say is that theyre not somebody that he would be attracted to, and therefore, the whole thing is nonsense.
