After video footage surfaced showing Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it because of his celebrity status, the former producer of the reality TV show which Donald Trump starred in, The Apprentice, warned that “when it comes to the Trump Tapes, there are far worse” and that this was “just the beginning.”
Bill Pruitt, a producer on the first two seasons of The Apprentice is now looking prophetic.
On Friday afternoon, former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos, who stated that she was a Republican, accused Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her in 2007 at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles while seeking employment for the Trump organization.
Zervos provided salacious details of the incident sitting by famous attorney Gloria Allred, who claimed that she has corroborating witnesses who Zervos told after the incident, announced the allegation at a press conference where Zervos fought back tears while reading her statement. Zervos said that Trump shoved his tongue into her mouth, grabbed her breasts despite her trying to push him away and “thrust his genitals” against her.
Summer Zervos claimed that Donald Trump denied her employment after she turned down his unwanted sexual advances.
Zervos specific claims sound virtually identical to what Donald Trump bragged about in the extremely lewd video released last week in which Trump cavalierly boasted about “when you’re a star, they let you do it,” with the “it” being “grab them by the pussy.”
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait,” Trump said in the original Trump Tape.
“You do not have the right to treat women as sexual objects just because you are a star,” Zervos said, addressing Trump directly. Allred said Zervos was “very reluctant” to come forward and is “not seeking either money or fame.”
Gloria Allred, in describing why Zervos chose this time to come forward, said that when she heard Trump bragging about assaulting women it “hit a nerve.” and felt that it was her duty to speak out.
