Warning: this is very difficult to watch.
A video of Donald Trump apparently groping and nonconsensually kissing 2004 Miss Universe winner Jennifer Hawkins has just been released. According to the Huffington Post, the footage comes from a 2011 speech Mr. Trump gave at a corporate event. In the video, the Republican presidential candidate calls Hawkins to the stage to emphasize a point he was making about getting revenge against people who “screw you.”
According to Trump, the beauty contestant angered him after she declined to introduce him at the event. After seeming to accept Hawkins’ excuse that there was some sort of communication breakdown, Trump grabs her, pulls her close, and proceeds to deliver a very unwanted kiss.
“Can I sit down now?” Hawkins immediately asks afterward.
