Leeds claimed that in the late 70s, she was on the same flight as Trump when he lifted the armrest of the seat and started harassing her, allegedly touching her breasts and putting his hands up her skirt. Following the alleged assault, Leeds crossed paths with Trump and his first wife, Ivana — who was pregnant at the time — at a Humane Society fundraiser, where he reportedly called her the c-word.
“He stands there as I’m handing him his table assignment and he says, ‘I remember you. You were that… woman from the airplane.’ He called me the worst name ever… It’s the worst one… The room cleared. It was like everybody disappeared… It was shocking.”
While Leeds refused to tell Kelly what word he used, the host asked her to confirm if he had used the c-word.
“You don’t want to say it out loud, but does it begin with a ‘c,’” Kelly asked, to which Leeds said that it did. Then, Kelly added, “Does it end with ‘t?’”
As some people in the audience laughed nervously and others sounded shocked, Leeds confirmed it.
Kelly went on to say the White House had responded to her request for comment, saying that the Trump administration had denied the accusations made by Leeds and others who were present at her show.
While Trump and his minions continue to claim the accusations against him are false, the fact several women have accused him of harassment over the decades should be enough to prove he has zero credibility and should not be taken seriously.
As countless Hollywood producers, celebrities, and politicians are finally paying for their years of violence, abuse, and assault, we’re left to wonder if the president will ever be held accountable for his transgressions.
