During a roundtable with small business leaders ahead of a rally in Palm Beach, Florida, reporter Jonathan Lemire asked Donald Trump about recent sexual assault allegations and was promptly escorted out of the meeting.
Lemire can be heard asking, “Have you ever touched or kissed…” before the audio cuts out. People attending the roundtable booed Lemire, someone is heard saying “get out of here.”
Trump responded by calling Lemire a “sleazebag” as the camera crews were escorted out of the room.
Since last Friday when the Washington Post leaked audio of Trump bragging about groping and kissing women without consent, the GOP nominee’s campaign has been swirling out of control.
NY Mag has kept a running list of sexual assault, harassment, and rape allegations against Trump, which you can find here.
