Shortly after that meeting, he was in Los Angeles and invited her for dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel. “Mr. Trump said that he was golfing and could not discuss this at that time”.Late Friday, the Trump campaign released a statement purporting to be from statement in which a cousin of Zervos said he was “shocked and bewildered” by her account. Ann Russo, a social worker and friend of Zervos, said she recalls the contestant talking about her encounters with Trump more than five years ago – long before the candidate made a decision to run for office. “It’s a sexual assault issue, and it’s something that I’ve kept quiet on my own”, Anderson said to the paper. He added that Zervos had emailed Trump’s office this past April 14 to ask if he could visit her restaurant in California. Crooks told the Times she was meeting Trump for the first time when he took her hand to shake it and would not let go. “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”. Zervos said that she was “very excited” about the prospect of working for him.As Zervos said before, she is not pursuing a lawsuit against Trump or seeking any kind of money, Allred said. The two shared a sandwich and then she left the hotel. Five women have told publications detailed stories about encounters with Mr Trump that ended with groping, kissing and other unwanted sexual advances. Trump eventually refused to give the former “Apprentice” star a job, citing thousands of layoffs at the Trump Organization.Allred was also flanked by Zervos’ friend, social worker Ann Russo, who is among three people who have said Zervos confided in them about Trump’s alleged misconduct.”He did touch my vagina through my underwear”, Kristin Anderson told The Washington Post. “Come on man, get real”, she says she told him, a couple of times; Trump, she added, then repeated those same words back to her as he “thrust his genitals” against her.Returning to the groping allegations, he questioned why women aren’t saying similar things about President Obama, who campaigned against Trump on Friday in Ohio.For some of the women, they felt compelled to speak out against Trump after hearing him tell Cooper that he had not groped women without their consent.Zervos is the latest in a string of women to accuse reality TV personality-turned-politician Trump of sexual misconduct.”Why wasn’t it part of the story that appeared 20, or 12, years ago?”.The former contestant was emotional as she recounted how she had reached out to Trump, 70, about a job at his company in 2007 following her appearance on the hit NBC series in 2006, only to be bombarded with unwanted advances.”Right now I am being viciously attacked with lies and smears”, Trump said at an outdoor amphitheater. People all over the place.’He was so distinctive looking – with the hair and the eyebrows. “And when she walked in front of me, believe me, I wasn’t impressed”. He shut the door “and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall, and forcing his tongue down my throat”.Trump’s predatory sexual behavior has been on blast since last Friday, when a video tape surfaced featuring Trump boasting about sexual assault.
