Woman describes Trump's effort to kiss her
WASHINGTON - The list of women alleging aggressive sexual behavior by Donald Trump is growing again. This time it's a woman who claims he tried to kiss her on the mouth when he was introduced to her at a Mother's Day brunch at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
Cathy Heller tells The Guardian newspaper that Trump was greeting guests at the event about 20 years ago and she stood and extended her hand. She said Trump took her hand, then grabbed her and "went for the lips." She says she leaned backward and almost lost her balance, turning her head at the last minute, and he kissed her on the side of her mouth.
Heller says she was in the company of her husband, children and in-laws and that the episode left her "angry and shaken." The Guardian reports that two people provided accounts of the incident that matched hers.
Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller dismisses Heller's account as "a false accusation" and says it could hardly have taken place as described on Mother's Day and in public.
