The Washington Post has interviewed yet another woman who alleges Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump touched her inappropriately at a nightclub in New York City back in the 1990s.
Kristin Anderson was deep in conversation with acquaintances at a crowded Manhattan nightspot and did not notice the figure to her right on a red velvet couch — until, she recalls, his fingers slid under her miniskirt, moved up her inner thigh, and touched her vagina through her underwear.
Anderson shoved the hand away, fled the couch and turned to take her first good look at the man who had touched her, she said.
She recognized him as Donald Trump: “He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows. I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”
At the time of the incident, which Anderson said took place in the early 1990s, she was in her early twenties, trying to make it as a model. She was paying the bills by working as a makeup artist and restaurant hostess. Trump was a big celebrity whose face was all over the tabloids and a regular presence on the New York club scene.
The episode, as Anderson described it, lasted no more than 30 seconds. Anderson said she and her companions were “very grossed out and weirded out” and thought, “Okay, Donald is gross. We all know he’s gross. Let’s just move on.”
Anderson did not seek out the Washington Post to tell her story. A reporter at the WaPo heard of the incident from a mutual friend and contacted Anderson.
Anderson, who says she’s neither a Trump nor Clinton supporter, says she needed to take a few days to think about coming forward considering the media scrutiny she knew would happen.
Over the years, she’s casually shared the story to friends in regard to how women get hit on by “creepy older guys.”
Several women have come forward recounting alleged sexual assault by Trump in the aftermath of the now infamous Access Hollywood video where Trump bragged to host Billy Bush about behavior that very closely mirrors the stories now coming to light.
