Now, this doesn’t excuse what Trump said, it’s still awful, but could he have been egged on? He may not have said those things if Billy Bush hadn’t started it. Interesting observation.
In a teaser of the interview set to air Monday, October 17, the supermodel, 46, said during a sit-down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the Republican presidential nominee, 70, was “egged on” by Bush to engage in the sexually explicit remarks.
“I said to my husband that, you know, the language was inappropriate. It’s not acceptable. And I was surprised, because that is not the man that I know,” the former model tells Cooper. “And as you can see from the tape, the cameras were not on — it was only a mic. And I wonder if they even knew that the mic was on.”
The potential future first lady defended her husband’s remarks, saying that it was “boy talk, and he was led on — like, egged on — from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.”
Melania said that she’s never personally experienced the business mogul engage in that type of vulgar conversation. “That’s why I was surprised, because I said like I don’t know that person that would talk that way, and that he would say that kind of stuff in private,” she said.
