e.g., "Trump has also argued that his “locker room talk” is “just words,” as compared with Clinton’s husband, former president Bill Clinton, who engaged in an affair with a White House intern "

~~

In Wednesday night’s debate, Trump said that either Clinton was orchestrating the series of allegations or the women were seeking “their 10 minutes of fame.”

Trump has also argued that his “locker room talk” is “just words,” as compared with Clinton’s husband, former president Bill Clinton, who engaged in an affair with a White House intern and has faced a string of other allegations of improper sexual conduct. Trump invited some of Bill Clinton’s accusers to the second presidential debate, and on Wednesday brought as a guest Leslie Millwee, who told the conservative Breitbart news website that she had been sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton in 1980. Clinton lawyer David Kendall declined to comment on the allegation.

The Post first contacted Virginia last week after she mentioned her experience in a Facebook posting spotted by a Post reporter’s relative who had attended college with Virginia.

Virginia had told The Post she was reluctant to speak publicly about her experience, comments she reiterated by Allred’s side Thursday. “No one has asked me to come forward,” she said.

Allred said that Virginia contacted her. The lawyer has said she has received multiple phone calls from women who say Trump assaulted them. She held a news conference with another Trump accuser last week, a former contestant on the television show “The Apprentice” who said Trump aggressively kissed and groped her during a job meeting in 2007.

Virginia describes herself as a spiritual teacher. She writes an occasional yoga column for the liberal Huffington Post, including one column that described her 2014 experiences appearing as a spiritual counselor on an episode of the reality television show “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

She hosts her own website, in which she describes herself as a “TV personality” and indicates that she has written a book about yoga coming out in January.
