She relives Trump forcing himself on her as 21-year-old beauty pageant contestant
The new revelations about Trump have caused Temple Taggart to speak up.
Taggart was a 21-year-old beauty contestant when, she said, Mr. Trump kissed her on the lips, without invitation, at a pageant event. It was an unwanted advance she has turned over in her head for years.
Watching him relive his sexual aggressions on the video, she said in an interview on Saturday, “made me feel a lot better.”
“It was like: ‘Thank you. Now no one can say I made this up,’” she added.
Mr. Trump’s overheard words, about pushing himself on women simply because he could, caused her to see the experience in a new and even harsher light.
“Back then,” she said, “I was judging him with very innocent eyes.”
