Another Woman Comes Forward to Say Trump Groped Her
Another woman has come forward to say Donald Trump groped her without consent, in a New York nightclub in the early 1990s. And as with the other women, she told friends about it at the time and they back up her story.
Kristin Anderson was deep in conversation with acquaintances at a crowded Manhattan nightspot and did not notice the figure to her right on a red velvet couch — until, she recalls, his fingers slid under her miniskirt, moved up her inner thigh, and touched her vagina through her underwear.
Anderson shoved the hand away, fled the couch and turned to take her first good look at the man who had touched her, she said.
She recognized him as Donald Trump: “He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows. I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”
The episode, as Anderson described it, lasted no more than 30 seconds. Anderson said she and her companions were “very grossed out and weirded out” and thought, “Okay, Donald is gross. We all know he’s gross. Let’s just move on.”
Over the years, Anderson, now 46 and a photographer living in Southern California, has recounted the story to people she knew, casually at first. One friend, Kelly Stedman, told The Washington Post that Anderson informed her about the encounter a few days after it happened.
Just as with all of the other women, the Trump campaign denies this and accuses Anderson of seeking publicity. Of course.
As Trump has done with others who have made accusations, his campaign said that Anderson is making the whole thing up.
“Mr. Trump strongly denies this phony allegation by someone looking to get some free publicity. It is totally ridiculous,” Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an emailed statement.
