As part of a Donald Trump campaign counter-offensive to stop the bleeding after his poll numbers went into a death-spiral following the release of the Access Hollywood "p*ssy grabbing" video, Melania Trump was made available for tightly-scripted interviews with cable TV hosts Monday night.

While she hit most of her marks, her description of her husband boasting to a giggly Billy Bush about how he sexually assaults women as "boys talk" set Twitter on fire.

During her interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, the GOP candidate's wife was asked about Trump's comments, with Melania Trump complaining that Trump had been "egged on" by Bush, and that she had never heard him speak that way.

"I heard many different stuff -- boys talk," she told Cooper. "The boys, the way they talk when they grow up and they want to sometimes show each other, 'Oh, this and that' and talking about the girls. But yes, I was surprised, of course."

Those words set people off.
