Anderson Cooper Cuts CNN Interview After Trump Accuser Calls Rape “Sexy”

(TMU) — Less than 24 hours after Donald Trump decided not to conduct a military assault against Iran, the president was accused of a different type of assault.

E. Jean Carroll, 75, alleged last week that Trump sexually assaulted her in the dressing room of Bergdorf Goodman—a high-end department store—in the mid 1990s.

Invited on-air by CNN to discuss her claims, Carroll engaged in an awkward exchange regarding the word ‘rape’ with interviewer Anderson Cooper while describing the alleged incident.

“I was not thrown on the ground and ravished,” Carroll stated. “The word ‘rape’ carries so much sexual connotations. This was not sexual. It hurt.”

“I think most people think of rape as a violent assault,” Cooper responded.

“I think most people think of rape as being sexy,” Carroll interjected while nodding. “Think of the fantasies.”

The CNN host immediately took the network to a commercial break after the accuser’s bizarre statement.

On Monday, President Trump strongly refuted the allegations due to appear in Carroll’s forthcoming book, What Do We Need Men For? A Modest Proposal.

“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” the president said speaking with the Hill.

“Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her,” Trump said. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is—it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.”

In Carroll’s on-air conversation with Cooper, she responded to Trump’s statement by telling the CNN host: “I love that I’m not his type.”
