The woman who accused Trump of harassing her in a Bergdorf-Goodman department store in midtown Manhattan in the 90s has admitted to doing the same thing to the former chairman and CEO of Fox News, Roger Ailes, according to Newsmax. E. Jean Carroll was speaking to Vanity Fair in 2019 when she spoke of what she would do to the then-president of CNBC.
Ailes reportedly helped begin America’s Talking which hosted Carroll’s show. But despite what she did, she claimed that it was never compared to the wrong that Ailes did. More than two dozen women reportedly accused Ailes of assault and harassment, citing a “culture of misogyny,” hush money payments, surveillance, and smear campaigns that accompanied the inappropriate conduct.
“Oh, I did it. Every day I had a chance,” Carroll said when talking to the magazine. She continued to say that she would lift her trousers and her leg would sport his name. She said she adored him and would ask him to twirl for her.
The comments came as Carroll is suing former President Donald Trump for defaming her when he called her lying about an interaction that never occurred so that she can bolster sales of her memoir. Trump called her a “complete con job” and dismissed her allegations as a “hoax and a lie, just like all the other Hoaxes that have been played on me for the past seven years.”
The lawsuit comes during several other suits and investigations are being launched into the former president. Most recently, Trump was indicted by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg over alleged hush money payments given to adult film actress Stormy Daniels to cover up an affair. Trump denies the allegations and pleaded not guilty to over 30 counts of business fraud. If found guilty on all counts, he will face over 100 years in prison.
