“Don’t feel sorry for me,” Melania told the CNN anchor. The potential First Lady finally sat down to discuss Donald’s recently leaked Access Hollywood tape as well as the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct laid out against him.
When addressing the hot mic tape, Melania claimed that the fault lay more on the media than her husband for the tape in which he discussed doing “anything” to women including inappropriately grabbing them.
“It was the media,” Melania said. “It was NBC. It was Access Hollywood. It was left wing and left-wing media. You could see that. Everything was organized. Every Friday, something comes out!”
She then said her husband’s comments were simply “boy’s talk.”
Cooper then asked the former Slovenian model how she felt about the sexual assault accusations against her husband.
“It wasn’t sexual assault,” she said. “He didn’t say he did it. And I see many, many women come to him and give him phone numbers and, you know, want to work for him or inappropriate stuff from women.”
Melania insisted in the interview that her marriage to the billionaire remained “very strong.”
“People, they don’t really know me,” she said. “People think and talk about me like, ‘Oh, poor Melania.’ Don’t feel sorry for me. I can handle everything.”
