Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran has claimed Donald Trump compared her breasts to those of his then-wife, Marla Maples, while both women were pregnant back in 1993.
The businesswoman told CNN’s Erin Burnett on Thursday, October 27, that the Republican presidential nominee made the remarks during a business meeting.
“I was pregnant with my first child at the time and so was his second wife, and he compared my breast size to his wife by putting his hands in the air,” the real estate expert said on OutFront, gesturing with her hands in front of her chest.
“I was in a business meeting. I was shocked,” she said, adding that Trump made the comments during the only time she was ever alone with him in the 45 years they’ve known each other.
Corcoran, 67, said that given her business dealings with Trump over the course of her real estate career, she “very much” believes the multiple women who have come forward to accusing him of sexual misconduct.
“I just think it’s preposterous that he’s claiming he has done nothing like that. I mean, he has always been that way. Always,” she said.
Us Weekly has reached out to Trump’s rep for comment
The former Celebrity Apprentice host, 70, has denied multiple allegations of sexual misconduct and threatened to sue his accusers.
Earlier on Thursday, former Miss Finland Ninni Laaksonen also came forward to accuse him, claiming that Trump grabbed her butt before an appearance together on The Late Show with David Letterman in 2006.
The New York real estate mogul had also been accused of sexual misconduct by 11 other women who came forward with their allegations after The Washington Post released a lewd video of Trump bragging to Billy Bush that he could get away with kissing and grabbing women by “the p--sy” because of his fame.
Trump dismissed the conversation as “locker room talk” and claimed during the October 19 presidential debate that the allegations had been largely “discredited.” He doubled down on his denials this week, telling ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on October 26: “These stories were fabricated. They’re total lies.”
