Yashwant Raj, Washington: As Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump went from one rally to another,
keeping up the pretence of a man focussed on the job, his campaign was rolling out statements to counter the fresh allegations of sexual assaults surfacing.
Among its statements was one by a British man claiming a woman, who alleged being groped by Trump on a flight, was “the one being flirtatious”. This man, Anthony Gilberthorpe, had once claimed to have pimped for British politicians.
Gilberthorpe said he was on that flight and was sitting across Trump and the accuser, Jessica Leeds.
Leeds’ revelations in The New York Times on Wednesday, along with a second woman, triggered a chain of accusations that still continue.Kristen Andersen, a photographer, told The Post on Friday that Trump groped her at a Manhattan nightspot in the 1990s, in an episode lasting no longer than 15 seconds, which, as reported by other victims, ended only when she moved away.
Andersen was on sitting a couch talking to some acquaintances when she felt a hand move up her miniskirt, to her underpants and her genitals. She shoved the hand away and turned to look at the man responsible. “He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows. I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows,” she told the Post.
It was Trump, she said.But Trump tried to challenge her account, to a roar of approval from supporters at a rally, arguing it wasn’t him because he could never have been their alone, not him.
His campaign called the allegations “phony” and “ridiculous”. It will issue another statement soon.
Summer Zervos, a former contestant of The Apprentice — the show that made Trump a celebrity — alleged he groped her and kissed her against her will in his hotel suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles in 2007.
