As the November presidential elections draw closer, Republican nominee Donald Trump is facing an ever-increasing number of accusations for sexually inappropriate behavior and the latest on the list is prominent businesswoman Barbara Corcoran.
In an interview Thursday night with CNN’s Erin Burnett, Corcoran said Trump talked about the size of her breasts during one of their several business meetings. Corcoran referred to the allegations of sexual misconduct being levied against the real estate mogul, saying it’s “preposterous that he’s claiming he’s done nothing like that.”
“I was pregnant with my first child at the time. So was his second wife [Marla Maples],” Corcoran told Burnett. “And he compared my breast size to his wife by putting his hands in the air, telling me how large they are.”
“If a man is that way ― so inappropriate ― I just assume it’s that way all the time,” Corcoran added.
Barbara Corcoran, currently a judge at ABC’s hit reality show "Shark Tank," built one of New York’s largest real estate companies — the Corcoran Group. An expert in the field, Corcoran reportedly helped Trump out of virtual bankruptcy earlier in their careers, but Trump sued to avoid paying Corcoran for the deal she had brokered for him, accusing her of defamation.
Eventually, she won and Trump was directed to pay her back in monthly installments and the judge ruled: “The only damage done in the case was a bruise to Mr. Trump’s ego.”
In a recent interview with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, Corcoran referred to Trump as the “biggest bully in town,” and recounted his comments on her pregnancy. On a lighter note, she told O’Donnell that following the 1994 ruling, she started receiving the installments, which she acknowledged by sending the now Republican nominee a bouquet to thank him.
Trump reportedly sent back the flowers at every instance.
After audio tapes of conversations between Trump and Billy Bush, the then-host of "Access Hollywood," surfaced, where Trump made derogatory comments about women like he could “grab them by the pussy” because of his celebrity status, at least 12 women have come forward alleging sexual misconduct on the part of the nominee.
Trump has denied the allegations and threatened to sue the women for defamation. However, the accusations — ranging over 30 years — have caused his voter ratings to take a tumble, less than a month before the 2016 elections.
