“He just shoved his tongue down my throat and I was pushing him off. And then that’s when his grip became tighter and his hands were very gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything.

She further added, “I was in his grip, and I couldn’t get out of it, I don’t know what you call that when you’re sticking your tongue just down someone’s throat. But I pushed it out with my teeth. I was pushing it. And I think I might have hurt his tongue” she told The Guardian in an interview.

“Now I feel like my girls are about to turn 13 years old and I want them to know that you don’t let anybody do anything to you that you don’t want,” she said. “And I’d rather be a role model. I want them to see that I didn’t stay quiet, that I stood up to somebody who did something that was unacceptable.”

However, President Trump and his legal team have completely denied the accusation. Jenna Ellis, a legal adviser to the Trump campaign, said,“We will consider every legal means available to hold The Guardian accountable for its malicious publication of this unsubstantiated story. This is just another pathetic attempt to attack President Trump right before the election” as reported by NY Times.

More than two dozen women have accused President Trump of sexual misconduct over the last few decades. At least 10 women, including Dorris, have accused Trump of groping or kissing them without their consent. However, he has repeatedly denied all these allegations.
