U.S. television host Billy Bush, who was caught on tape making lewd comments with Donald Trump in 2005, has left NBC, the channel says. "And we knew that - that, you know, tapes will come out, people won't want to go against him", Melania Trump said. "I'm talking about your husband, your brother, the pope, Luke Skywalker, all of them. [They were engaged in] boy talk, and he was led on-like, egged on-from the host to say dirty and bad stuff".
Melania, whose husband frequently uses social media to attack opponents, also suggested that, as first lady, she could be interested in leading an effort to combat bullying and negativity on social media. "The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me", she said at the time. "The way it comes out is very organised. the opposition doesn't want to talk Wikileaks and the emails and Benghazi and all the other stuff, they don't want to talk about it". And with the details ... did they ever check the background of these women? "But I know how some men talk, and that's how I saw it, yes".
Speaking to CNN Mrs Trump, 46, described her husband, 70, as "raw" and somebody who "tells it as it is". "You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them".
She said that she wanted to defend her husband because of all the "lies" against him.
Several women accused Mr Trump of sexual assault, which he denies and have since come forward.
"I believe my husband".
The interview takes place the day after Mrs Trump IRL gave a pair of interviews to CNN and Fox News, most of it in reaction to Trump's recent "grabbing" comments.
'I believe my husband... he didn't do anything'.
In the footage, recorded over 10 years ago, Trump can be heard boasting about his past liaisons, saying: "When you're a star, they let you do it". "I am not blinking out in morse code that someone else is in the room telling me what to say".
Melania Trump has demanded an apology and a retraction from People for a story alleging that Donald Trump forcibly kissed Natasha Stoynoff, a writer for the magazine, before a 2005 interview with the couple about their first anniversary.
The interview was cut short, though, when Benanti/Trump accidentally brought up Hillary Clinton.
