Three women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct came together to share their stories with Megyn Kelly.
On Monday’s edition of Megyn Kelly Today, Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Crooks spoke to Kelly about a man who they deem to be — in the words of Leeds — “a pevert.”
“It was heartbreaking,” Holvey said of Trump being elected after she, Leeds, and Crooks came forward. Holvey added, “For us to put ourselves out there to show America who this man is and especially how he views women, and for them to say ‘We don’t care,’ it hurt. And so it’s just like, now let’s try round two. The environment’s different. Let’s try again.”
Holvey, a former Miss North Carolina in the Trump-owned Miss USA pageant, opened by recounting her claim.
Holvey said that Trump looked her over, “Like I was just a piece of meat…I was just simply there for his pleasure. It left me feeling very gross, very dirty.”
Crooks detailed her claim next.
“He held onto my hand, and he kept kissing me,” she told Kelly.
Leeds followed with her allegation that Trump groped her on an airplane.
“When his hands went up my skirt, I managed to wiggle out,” Leeds said.
Kelly read a statement from the White House denying the allegations. The statement said that the claims are “false,” and suggested that the claims are politically motivated.
“It’s laughable,” Crooks said of the White House statement.
