Trump's Sons Defend Father as 14th Woman Comes Forward to Accuse Him of Sexual Misconduct
Eric Trump blamed "mainstream media" bias for prompting the latest accuser to come forward.
Donald Trump’s sons are defending their father as yet another woman has come forward to publicly accuse the presidential candidate of inappropriate sexual misconduct.
Eric Trump appeared on This Week Sunday morning, accusing “mainstream media” bias for dedicating their attention to the women coming forward.
“The day the Hillary WikiLeaks comes out, all of a sudden people start coming forward. I think you have to be really naïve to think that one and the other weren't coordinated together," Trump said.
On October 7, WikiLeaks had posted emails that came from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta.
Trump added: "Where were these women before? Where were — it's not like my father is a hidden individual, right? I mean he's one of the most known people in the world."
Trump’s 32-year-old son also stressed that his father plans to sue the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct, including Jessica Drake.
“My father is a guy who will fight," Trump said. "He'll fight for this country and he'll always fight for himself and he believes in a right and a wrong."
Drake is the latest woman to claim Trump behaved inappropriately with her. She says it happened at a celebrity golf tournament in 2006 in Lake Tahoe, California.
Drake appeared at a news conference with lawyer Gloria Allred Saturday evening.
The adult film star claims she and two companions visited Trump in his penthouse hotel suite at a golf tournament in 2006.
“When we entered the room he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission,” she said.
Drake, who has appeared in more than 200 porn movies, says Trump later called and invited her to dinner and a party, which she declined.
“After that I got another call either from Donald or another male calling on his behalf, offering me $10,000. I declined again,” she said.
Trump calls Drake's allegations "totally false and ridiculous."
On Friday, Donald Trump, Jr. defended his father’s comments to Billy Bush an in unearthed 2005 Access Hollywood interview when Trump’s mic was still hot.
Appearing on KIRO radio, the 38-year-old said: “Obviously he's not happy about that, but I think we probably all know guys who have had conversations with other guys that go a little bit in that direction, that's a fact of life. I think he's able to relate to ordinary Americans because in many cases he is still very much like that. He does do that. He hasn't spent his whole life sitting there polishing every statement he's ever made, every conversation he's ever had."
