Donald Trump Says Celebs Have Always Grabbed Women, 'Unfortunately or Fortunately'
Donald Trump‘s infamous “Access Hollywood” quote isn’t just locker room talk, apparently — he repeated it while under oath for a deposition in the E. Jean Carroll case … and added a pretty shocking clarification.
During Trump’s depo — recorded on video last October — Carroll’s attorney, Roberta Kaplan, is grilling him about his treatment of women, generally, and raises the hot mic remarks he made during the 2005 interview with Billy Bush: “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything, grab them by the p****. You can do anything.”
The attorney asks, “That’s what you said, correct?” … and without blinking he responds, “Well, historically, that’s true with stars. If you look over the last million years, I guess that’s been largely true.”
He then, stunningly, added … “Unfortunately or fortunately.”
Trump was being deposed because Carroll is suing him for battery and defamation, and the trial is ongoing right now in NYC. Carroll claimed Trump raped her in the ’90s, and he responded by calling her story a “hoax,” and declaring she’s not his type.
During the depo, he also called her a “nut job” and a “whack job.”
Closing arguments are expected to begin Monday, unless Trump decides he wants to testify.
