Melania Trump has not been in the public eye much since sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump have dominated the news. In fact, in Melania’s absence, SNL went to town with a song and video named “Melanianade,” as reported by the Inquisitr. That video (seen below) portrayed Melania as a disgruntled and fed up wife, with Melania starring as a Beyonce type in the spoof of Queen Bey’s “Sorry” video. However, Melania will be heard and seen on Monday, October 17, on Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN at 8 p.m. ET — the real Melania and not a spoof character — to give her side of the sexual assault allegations story.
According to CNN, the Anderson Cooper 360 with Melania will feature Mrs. Trump’s views that while Melania felt Donald’s talk was not appropriate, Melania also felt Donald spoke in such a way because of the male company Trump kept.
Melania’s CNN interview will reference Trump and the viral Access Hollywood video with Billy Bush — and will call it “boy talk” that her husband engaged in. Comments from Cooper’s interview with Melania have already been released prior to the full interview with Melania airing on Monday, October 17, at 8 p.m. ET.
“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. 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. [Donald and Billy had] boy talk, and [Trump] was led on — like, egged on — from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.”
Whereas Melania will touch on Donald’s leaked video with crass talk during Trump’s conversation with Bush — it isn’t known how far Cooper and Melania will delve into the actions of grabbing the genitalia of women that Donald described in the video. Melania has said that she has not heard Donald use those types of words in her presence.
“No. No, 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. I heard many different stuff — boys talk. The boys, the way they talk when they grow up and they want to sometimes show each other, ‘Oh, this and that’ and talking about the girls. But yes, I was surprised, of course.”
Melania will address the manner in which her husband was caught speaking on tape — a follow-up from the statement released attributed to Melania that called such talk unacceptable and offensive — and not representative of the Donald that Melania knows.
As reported by Rolling Stone, Trump has had to deal with a lot more accusations and controversy than those issues that arose from the leaked conversation with Bush.
Jessica Leeds was one of two women interviewed by The New York Times who said that Trump turned into an octopus on an airplane in 1980, claiming that Trump placed his hands up Jessica’s skirt, kissed and sexually assaulted her to the point where Leeds fled away from the first class section. Rachel Crooks also claimed that Trump assaulted her in 2005.
An attorney for Melania has threatened to sue People over Natasha Stoynoff’s allegations that Trump forced himself on Natasha with a pregnant Melania in the same house when the writer traveled to Florida to interview Melania and Trump for their first wedding anniversary.
Trump claims that all of the allegations from all of the women are untrue.
Donald went so far as to demand the New York Times retract the articles with the claims from women against Trump about sexual misconduct.
Melania’s statement, as reported by Donald’s website, stated that Melania hoped people would forgive Trump.
“I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”
