Is this story about to go full Cosby? In the leaked audio of Trump's vulgar comments he’s heard saying:
“I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”
It seems Donald Trump wasn’t making it up. Because almost immediately after that audio was leaked, CNN anchor Erin Burnett says a friend immediately contacted her with a hauntingly familiar story about Donald Trump, Tic Tacs and unwanted sexual advances. Rough transcript and video are below:
I know a woman who heard that line today and she said it stopped her in her tracks. She said:
“The Tic Tacs. That’s exactly what Trump did to me. Trump took Tic Tacs, suggested I take them also. He then leaned in, I’m reading this, catching me off guard and kissed me almost on the lips. After Trump asked me to come in his office alone, I figured I could handle myself. Anyway, once in his office, he kept telling me how “special” I am and gave me his cell phone number and asked me to call him. I ran the hell out of there.”
That was in 2010. He was married at the time. This is the exact story that Trump said. This isn’t Trump just saying something to make it up. This happened. To someone I know.
Erin Burnett says this happened in 2010. Donald Trump was 64-years-old. The tape with Billy Bush happened in 2005. What we are seeing is a pattern emerging. A pattern of lewd and inappropriate behavior. How long until other women feel confident enough to come forward and share their own stories of unwanted sexual advances from Donald Trump? All signs point to this being the tip of the iceberg.
