Trump Weighs in on Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against Roger Ailes

trumpDonald Trump has known Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes for years, and today he weighed in on the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by Gretchen Carlson.

In an interview with The Washington Examiner, Trump reacted by saying, “I think they are unfounded just based on what I’ve read. Totally unfounded, based on what I read.”

Carlson has alleged that Ailes made many inappropriate remarks about her, but a fair number of her ex-colleagues have said that doesn’t sound like the Ailes they know.

While Carlson was still on the air, she got really heated with a guest who was downplaying the Corey LewandowskiMichelle Fields incident.

It’s also worth noting that a profile of Trump from New York Magazine in April contains an allegation that Trump has an “arsenal” of information that he could throw Ailes’ way.
