Trump Counsels Cain

 

Donald Trump appeared on Fox & Friends this morning, and said the anonymous decade-old sexual harassment allegations being thrown at Herman Cain are an “unfair” attack prompted by Cain becoming “a leading candidate” and “person of prominence”:

Trump theorizes that Cain’s nameless accusers might have been paid off because Cain, or the National Restaurant Association he was heading up at the time, “didn’t want to go through the legal fees” or “didn’t want to spend a lot of money.”  He pointed out that “it’s a lot cheaper and quicker” to settle such a complaint without publicity, but it ended up “blowing up in his face.”

Trump advised Cain to “come forward” and explain, “I was falsely accused of something and I settled in order to save legal fees.”

Cain, for his part, appeared on Fox News this morning and bluntly stated “I have never sexually harassed anyone,” while confirming that an accusation was leveled at him during his National Restaurant Association days:

Cain stressed, “I have never sexually harassed anyone.” He did admit that he was accused of harassment while at the National Restaurant Association, saying, “Yes, I was falsely accused while I was at the National Restaurant Association. And, I say falsely because it turned out, after the investigation, to be baseless.”

When Jenna Lee asked whether there was any sort of settlement, Cain stressed that if there were, he was not aware of it. If the Restaurant Association made a settlement, Cain said, “I wasn’t even aware of it and I hope it wasn’t for much because nothing happened.
