To date, 12 women have accused Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, allegations he has repeatedly denied. Now, season 4 Apprentice contestant Jennifer Murphy tells Us Weekly that Trump once kissed her on the mouth, and she “was OK with it.”
In fact, the former Miss Oregon made a parody video (to the tune of Hillary Clinton supporter Katy Perry’s song “I Kissed a Girl”) describing the experience. “It’s my way of saying, ‘Cut the guy a break!’” Murphy tells Us, “[The video] could help get people’s attention and showcase how I do really feel about Donald Trump running for president.”
Addressing the recent allegations against the former Celebrity Apprentice host, she says, “I don’t think [Trump is] the type of guy that needs to force himself on someone to get action. I just think that everyone needs to be slow to judge and slow to jump to conclusions until they hear all the facts and are completely aware of both sides of the story.”
The former reality star’s first run-in with Trump was back in 2004 when she competed in the Miss USA pageant. From there, she was cast on The Apprentice, where she claims the Republican nominee would call her “beautiful.”
“I thought it was kind of cute and sweet, like he has this little crush,” she says.
Though Trump eventually ended up firing Murphy on the hit TV show, she does not harbor any ill will toward him.
She concludes, “Hands down, I think Donald Trump is the person that we need to create some change, and to turn our country back around. I completely endorse him, and his run for presidency.”
