When you’re rich, they let you do it, or something.
Now, someone from Fox News has come forward to tell her tale of a man in power taking advantage of the situation and acting inappropriately.
Specifically, that man would be Donald Trump.
Juliet Huddy, a former Fox News host, revealed earlier Friday that Trump, around 2005 or 2006, made his move on an elevator in Trump Tower.
From Page Six:
The TV newswoman, who now hosts a radio show on WABC Radio, revealed on “Mornin!!! with Bill Schulz” on compoundmedia.com, that she had rebuffed the now-president in the Trump Tower elevator. And Trump later appeared on her Fox News chat show, and joked to the audience, “I hit on her but she blew me off.”
Huddy said of Trump, “He took me for lunch at Trump Tower, just us two. 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 wasn’t offended, I was kind of like, ‘Oh my god’.” She said she want to meet a friend and Trump then invited them both back to see “The Apprentice” set, “And everything was copacetic after that.”
She wasn’t offended by some old dude trying to kiss her on the mouth in an elevator?
I guess she feels like she has to say that.
But she added, “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.’ He used to watch ‘Fox & Friends,’ the show I was hosting on the weekend. Whatever, everything was fine. It was a weird moment. He never tried anything after that, and I was never alone with him.”
Yeah, I don’t blame you for taking that precaution.
She went on to explain how Trump joked with the audience and the producers of “Fox and Friends” that he hit on her, but that she’d blown him off.
So the kiss wasn’t innocent. He may have been joking afterwards, but at the time, he was testing his luck.
“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 added. Trump married Melania in January 2005.
Juliet Huddy was one of the women who received a settlement against Bill O’Reilly, the former Fox News big wheel, disgraced and dismissed over multiple accounts of sexual harassment.
During the Friday interview, Huddy discussed Trump’s reaction to the news about O’Reilly.
She continued talking about Trump’s reaction to the allegations against Bill O’Reilly, “I’ve seen him [Trump] many times over the years and he’s always been nice….When all the stuff came out about Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump was one of the people who said, ‘I don’t believe this happened and I don’t believe he did it’… I was actually very disappointed in Trump, I thought, ‘You know what, f–k you.’ He [Trump] has met me a bunch of times and he knows I am not [a liar].”
Yeah, but skanky old lechers of a feather stick together.
