Trump spokeswoman: Accusers want ’15 minutes of fame’

Donald Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson late Wednesday said four women have come forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct because they want “15 minutes of fame.”

During a panel discussion on “CNN Tonight” with Don Lemon, Pierson responded to reports that the women had accused Trump of inappropriately touching them in separate incidents spanning several decades.

“Just to answer the question on why they would come out, Don, because 15 minutes of fame,” she said.

Pierson also disputed the account of Jessica Leeds, who claimed in an explosive New York Times story released earlier Wednesday that Trump grabbed her breasts while sitting beside her in first-class during a flight to New York. In her recollection, Leeds says Trump pulled up the armrest that separated them before groping her.
