A former Fox News host just dropped a bombshell when she accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct.
Daily Mail reported that Juliet Huddy is now saying that Trump to kiss her while the two were in an elevator back at Trump Tower in New York City in 2005. She claims that the incident occurred after Trump invited her to lunch.
Huddy had previously made headlines when she reportedly received a settlement after filing a complaint against disgraced former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly. It appears that she has since set her sights on accusing Trump.
“He took me for lunch at Trump Tower, just us two,” Huddy said. “He said goodbye to me in an elevator while his security guy was there, rather than kiss me on the cheek he leaned in to kiss me on the lips.”
“I was surprised that he went for the lips. But I didn’t feel threatened… he took me out to lunch to talk about maybe me doing something with ‘The Apprentice,'” she added. “I wasn’t offended, I was kind of like, ‘Oh my god.”
A few years later, Trump appeared on Huddy’s early morning talk show on Fox affiliate WNYW, where she said he admitted, off camera, to the incident.
“Trump was a guest and he came on stage, He said, to the audience and producers, not on camera, ‘I tried hitting on her but she blew me off.’ He was laughing,'” she said. “At the time I was not offended by it, I thought he was a single man and leaned in for a kiss… maybe he thought, ‘She’s been out to lunch with me and maybe she is interested.'”
“Now I have matured I think I would say, ‘Woah, no,’ but at the time I was younger and I was a little shocked. I thought maybe he didn’t mean to do it, but I was kind of making excuses. The elevator incident and the lunch was 2005 or 2006,” she continued.
