Got Trump grabbed Billy Bush

A timeline of Donald Trump's inappropriate story with women

On October 7, the Trump campaign took a big turn when a video surfaced in 2005 of the presidential candidate businessman boasting about using his celebrity privilege to grope women and kiss them for it wanted or not. "I just start kissing her," he told the former Access to Hollywood Host Billy Bush. “It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And if you are a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them from the psysts. "

To be clear, the notion that someone is entitled to a woman's body - regardless of consent, which in this case wasn't - is the ubiquitous foundation of rape culture. Donald Trump's first reaction to public outrage over the newly discovered clip - to dismiss his comments as a "locker room joke" - did not apply to many women. Trump was urged to implement his comments during the second presidential debate. “No, I haven't,” he said. However, that answer has been questioned by more than a handful of women who have since reported sexual assault. While Trump continues to deny these allegations, the floodgates have opened for women to share their reports of his inappropriate behavior. To help keep track of these numerous instances, we've created a timeline detailing cases of Trump's alleged predatory behavior. We will continue to update these as we approach Election Day.

Early 1980s: Jessica LeedsBefore Trump had his own fleet of private planes, he flew commercials and on one trip tried to reach out to then 38-year-old businesswoman Jessica Leeds. Leeds, who sat next to Trump in first class, recalls that after they finished their meal, he lifted the armrest and began to feel it. “He was like an octopus,” she said The New York Times. “His hands were everywhere. It was a robbery. “Leeds shifted seats instead of speaking as the cultural attitudes towards sexual assault at the time put the victims to blame. "We have accepted it for years," Leeds said of similar undesirable advances. "We were taught it was our fault."

1989: Ivana TrumpWhen Ivana Trump divorced Donald, his ex-wife described a gruesome "rape scene" in an arrangement that was later selected for reporter Harry Hurt III's 1993 book Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump. The alleged incident came after Trump was upset about the results of a scalp reduction surgery that removed a bald spot, which his wife's plastic surgeon did. "Your damn doctor ruined me!" He allegedly said before pulling off Ivana's hair, taking off her clothes and undoing his pants. “Then he stuck his penis in for the first time in more than sixteen months. Ivana is scared ... It's a violent attack, "writes Hurt, as reported by The Daily Beast." According to versions, she repeats to some of her closest confidants, "he raped me." "Trump later dismissed the claim as false and The Trump Organization Special Adviser Michael Cohen defended him, saying," You cannot rape your spouse. And there is a very clear case law. "

Early 1990s: Kristin AndersonLike Leeds, Kristin Anderson told a similar story about being petted while sitting next to Trump. When Anderson was in a Manhattan nightclub in the early 1990s, she remembers Trump patting her "on the side, on the smart side" like some kind of stuffed animal on the couch. “Anderson told The Washington Post that Trump slipped his fingers under her miniskirt and underwear without her consent. “It wasn't a sexual arrival. I don't know why he did it. It was like proving that he could do it and that nothing was going to happen, ”she said. “There was no conversation. We didn't even really look at each other. It was very arbitrary, very nonchalant on his part ... It's a sexual assault problem and it's something I left alone, "said Anderson. “And I always kept quiet. And why should I keep still? Actually, all women should speak, and if you are inappropriately touched, tell someone and talk about it. Indeed you go to the authorities and push some fees. It's not OK."

1992: a 10 year old girlAnother harmful Trump video that surfaced during the election cycle is a 1992 segment for Entertainment tonight where Trump made sexually suggestive remarks about a 10 year old girl. Really. When Trump spotted the girl in front of an escalator, he quipped, “I'm going to date her in ten years. Can you believe it? " To add an even more disturbing perspective to this event, his daughter Ivanka Trump was also 10 years old at the time - although he has since joked that he would date her too if she weren't his daughter.

1992: Two 14 year old girlsIn the same year, Trump made similar remarks as two 14-year-old girls The Chicago Tribune Reports referencing an archived story in their entertainment and gossip column. The report reports that the incident happened when Trump was visiting a youth choir outside the Plaza Hotel. “He asked two of the girls how old they are,” it says. “After answering that they were 14, Trump said, 'Wow! Just think - I'll be dating you in a few years. ‘”

1993: Vendela KirsebomWhen Vanity Fair Editor Graydon Carter invited Trump to the White House Correspondents Dinner in 1993, it turned out to be a nightmare. Trump sat next to the Swedish model Vendela Kirsebom and molested her all evening until she apparently wanted to move. "After 45 minutes, she came to my table almost crying and asked me to move her," Carter recalls. "It seems that Trump spent all of his time examining the breasts and legs of the other female guests and asking how they measure up to those of other women, including his wife." He is, "she told me, in words that sounded familiar," the most vulgar man I have ever met. "

1993: Jill HarthIn the same year, Trump is said to have inflicted a "continuous chain of sexual assault" on makeup artist Jill Harth The guard Reports. Allegedly he felt it under a table in the Oak Room of the Plaza Hotel and later, allegedly, he stuck it on a wall in one of his children's rooms and felt it. “He was pushing me against the wall and had his hands all over me and trying to pull my dress back up,” recalled Harth, “and I had to say physically,“ What are you doing? Stop doing that. “It was shocking to let him do that because he knew I was with George, he knew they were in the next room. And how could he do that when I'm here on business? “Harth later formally accused Trump of attempting to rape him in 1997.

1994: A 13 year old girlBefore Leeds and Crooks voiced sexual assault against Trump, he was accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in the home of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. The case, recently filed for the third time in New York City where the alleged rape took place, consists of two affidavits by "Joan Doe" and "Tiffany Doe" that confirm the victim's story, Buzzfeed reports. "Joan" says she was informed of the attack after the incident, while "Tiffany" - who was apparently hired as a "recruiter" to bring young girls to Epstein's apartment - raped Trump and Epstein more than once. Trump's attorney has denied these allegations, although more information on the case may emerge - a hearing has been scheduled in New York this December.

1996: five or six modelsThe latest allegation of Trump's inappropriate behavior towards women comes from Lisa Boyne, a healthy eating entrepreneur who appears to have shared a dinner from hell with Trump. Boyne remembers The Huffington Post that she and a friend were sitting with "five or six models" at a semicircular table with Trump. When the models tried to get up, Trump refused to get up to let them instead, forcing them to go to the table, where he "tucked his head under her skirt," according to Boyne's report, and continued noticing her underwear and genitals . "It was the most offensive scene I've ever been in," said Boyne. "I wanted to fucking get out of there."

1996: Alicia MachadoWhile Trump's behavior toward former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado was not physically sexual, it was the definition of predatory and verbally abusive behavior. “It was very overwhelming. I was afraid of him. He'd yell at me all the time, ”Machado says in a video clip run by Hillary Clinton's campaign. "He said to me, 'You look ugly" or "You look fat." Sometimes, "he played" with me and said, "Hello, Miss Piggy", "Hello, Miss Housekeeping". Trump also put Machado to shame when she gained £ 40 after winning the title, causing eating disorders. "Long after that, I was sick with eating disorders," she recalls. “I wouldn't eat and still see myself as fat because a powerful man said so. This is a man who does not notice the damage he is causing. "

Donald Trump called her "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping."

After Machado told her story, Trump responded with a slut who shamed her.

Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?

1997: Five Miss Teen USA contestantsIn 1997, Trump caused discomfort to at least five Miss USA teenage contestants - including one as young as 15 - when he visited their dressing room while they were changing. "I remember very quickly putting on my dress because I said, 'Oh my god, there's a man here," former Miss Vermont Teen USA Mariah Billado told Buzzfeed. According to Billado, his response was something like, "Don't worry ladies, I've seen it before." Other participants described Buzzfeed as "shocking" and "scary". While 11 of the other entrants in this year's Buzzfeed contest said they didn't remember the incident, Trump has already bragged on the record about his locker room access. "I'm telling you the funniest thing is that I go backstage and get everyone dressed," he told Howard Stern. “There are no men anywhere and I am allowed in because I am the owner of the pageant and so I visit it. … “Are you all right?” You know, they stand there without clothes. "Are you all okay?" And you see these amazing looking women, and that's how I get away with things like that. "

Late 1990s: Cathy HellerHeller says she was out for a Mother's Day brunch in Mar-a-Lago with her family when her mother-in-law introduced her to Donald Trump. When she tried to shake his hand she said he pulled her towards him and she tried to pull away. "He said, 'Oh, come on,' and he was angry," she said. “He really grabbed me and he held me very tight to kiss my mouth. He was strong. " She says she turned her head slightly so he couldn't kiss her completely on the mouth, but she was still shaken and upset that he had the courage to take her so publicly - and in front of her family. Heller came up with her story after Trump denied he ever kissed women without her permission. “It drove me crazy,” she said, “it's not just locker room talking. That's him. He's a guy who packs women. “A relative who says she was behind Heller when it happened supports her claim, as does Heller's husband, who was also present. The Trump campaign refuted the report.

2003: A 12 year old Paris HiltonAnother underage girl Trump found attractive was the daughter of the family's friends, the Hiltons. In 2003, in an interview with Howard Stern, Trump went over how he found Paris Hilton, then 12 - a girl he'd known since childhood. "Well, someone that a lot of people don't give credit to, but the reality is it's really nice Paris Hilton," he said before admitting to seeing Hilton’s sex tape. "I've known Paris Hilton since she was 12, her parents are friends of mine and the first time I saw her she walked into the room and I said,‘ Who the hell is that? '"

2003: Mindy McGillivrayWhen the then 23-year-old Mindy McGillivray visited Trump's Mar-a-Lago with a friend, she had an unfortunate encounter with Donald Trump. While standing next to his then-fiancé Melania, McGillivray remembered her Palm Beach Post, “Suddenly I felt a grip, a small push. I think it's Ken's camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there is Donald. He kind of looked away quickly. I turned around quickly and looked at Ray Charles. and i'm stunned. "

2005: Rachel CooksThat same year, Trump made his appalling remarks about kissing women, whether they wanted it or not, he did exactly what he supposedly described to Rachel Cooks. The receptionist for a real estate company in Trump Tower described the incident in detail The New York Times, Trump said "kissed me right on the mouth" as she waited for an elevator in the building. Like Leeds, Cooks was afraid of telling anyone. "I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that," she said of the Times. She was relieved to later see Trump's 2005 interview with Bush. "I was upset that it had happened to other people, but I also comforted myself knowing that I wasn't the only one he had done it for," she says. "People should know ... this behavior is ubiquitous and it is real."

2005: Natascha StoynoffA writer for People described in detail their alleged attack by Trump. “We went into this room alone and Trump closed the door behind us. I turned and within seconds he was pressing me against the wall, forcing his tongue down my throat ... During the presidential debate, Donald Trump lied about kissing women without their consent I should know. His actions have made me feel that for a very long time i feel bad ... i'm not sure what kind of locker room these days are all i know i wasn't in a locker room he pushed me against a wall. I was in his house as a professional and his beautiful pregnant wife was just upstairs. Trump has since denied Stoynoff's account.

Why didn't the writer of the twelve year old article in People Magazine mention the "incident" in her story. Because it did not happen!

2006: Jessica DrakeJessica Drake says she was representing adult film company Wicked Pictures at a celebrity golf event in Lake Tahoe when she met Trump, who was playing, in the pre-event gift room.She says he flirted with her and asked her to take a walk around the golf course. During the walk, Drake asks for his number, which she gave him. He invited her to his room, she says, and she took two other women with her because she was uncomfortable. When she got to his suite, a pajama-clad Trump "hugged each of us tightly and kissed each of us without asking permission," she says. Drake adds that he asked for details on how to film porn and asked the women about their personal relationship status - questions that “felt like an interview,” she says. When she returned to her room, she said a man on behalf of Trump called her back to his room and she refused. Drake says Trump then called her directly to ask her to come back and have dinner with him in his suite and invite her to a party. She refused, and then she said Trump asked her, “What do you want? How much?" She used the excuse of going back to work to get him to stop asking. A third call came - she says she doesn't know if it was Trump or another man - to offer her $ 10,000. She refused again, and she said she was then told that Trump would only allow her to use his private jet if she said yes.

“I choose to share my personal exchanges, given the recently released tapes, to give my voice, strength and support to the other women who come up,” she says.

2007: Summer ZervosAs previously apprentice Candidate Summer Zervos reached out to Trump in 2007 and things went terribly wrong. Zervos recalls that Trump invited her to Los Angeles for dinner to discuss career prospects. It was only when she arrived that security was escorted to his bungalow in the Beverly Hills Hotel. Shortly after she came in, Zervos related The Huffington Post Trump “came up to me and started kissing me open mouth as he pulled me to him. I went away and sat on a chair ... He then asked me to sit next to him. I obeyed, he then grabbed my shoulder and started kissing me very aggressively again and put his hand on my chest. “As she got up to leave, Trump allegedly took my hand and led me into the bedroom ... He put me in a hug and I tried to push him away. I squeezed his chest to make room between us and I said, "Come on man, get real." He repeated my words back to me - "come on" - as he started poking his genitals. He tried to kiss me again, and with my hand still on his chest, I said, "Dude, you're tripping right now." After refusing him again, she said that Trump “was pacing up and down the room. Pretending to be a little angry, he pointed out that someone had delivered a fruit basket ... to show me how important it was. "

2012: A hostess at Trump National Golf ClubIn 2012, a lawsuit was filed by former employees for insufficient lunch or break breaks - but it revealed a lot more about what it was like to work at one of his operations. At Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, sexism was obviously the norm. Women were fired for not being hot enough - or hidden by executives who lacked the talent to fire talented workers just for their looks - and retired when they were deemed too old. "I had seen Donald Trump tell managers many times while visiting the club that restaurant hostesses were" not pretty enough "and that they should be fired and replaced with more attractive women," said Hayley Strozier The LA Times in their investigation into the lawsuit. One complaint, consistent with Trump's long history of reportedly sexually molesting and assaulting women, was that he was "overly familiar and unprofessional". According to former restaurant manager Charles West, when Trump saw “a young, attractive hostess named Nicole” on one of his visits, he “directed that she be taken to a place where he met a group of men. After introducing this woman to him, Mr. Trump said something to his guests like, "You see, you don't have to go to Hollywood to find beautiful women," he added. He also turned to Nicole and asked her, "Do you like Jewish men?"
