Melania Trump confirms her husband is easily ‘egged on’ into making bad decisions

In her first interview since allegations of sexual assault against her husband surfaced, Melania Trump defended her husband, saying the accusations are “lies” and that he was “egged on” by then-Access Hollywood host Billy Bush in a 2005 video where a hot mic captured Donald Trump describing grabbing women’s genitalia without their consent.

“I believe my husband. I believe my husband,” she said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday.

“This was all organized from the opposition. And with the details … did they ever check the background of these women? They don’t have any facts.”

Melania maintained that her husband’s comments came only after he was “egged on” by Bush.

“And as you can see from the tape, the cameras were not on — it was only a mic. And I wonder if [he and Bush] even knew that the mic was on,” she said, adding that they were engaged in “boy talk, and he was led on — like, egged on — from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.”

“Sometimes I say I have two boys at home — I have my young son and I have my husband. But I know how some men talk, and that’s how I saw it, yes,” she said.

“It’s very hard, especially for him,” she continued. “When he decided to run for the presidency, because he did so many stuff in his life. He was on so many tapes, so many shows. And we knew that — that, you know, tapes will come out, people won’t want to go against him.”
“But my husband is real. He’s raw. He tells it like it is. He’s kind. He’s a gentleman. He supports everybody. He supports women. He encourages them to go to the highest level, to achieve their dreams. He employs many, many women.”
