MSNBC’s Joe Scar-borough defended Donald Trump ‘boorish’ behavior. After reading through NYT article about Trump’s women treatment, Scarborough said he only found two examples of bad behavior on Trump’s part. The first one was when Trump met a young beauty pageant contestant for the first time and greeted her by kissing her directly on the lips.
“He kissed me directly on the lips,” said Temple Taggart, who in 1997 was a contestant in the Miss Universe pageant. “I thought, ‘Oh my God, gross.’ He was married to Marla Maples at the time. I think there were a few other girls that he kissed on the mouth. I was like ‘Wow, that’s inappropriate.’”
“I will tell you, that’s not a pleasant thing,” he said. “[But] in the thousands and thousands and thousands of receptions I’ve had before, people have come up, women have come up, of all ages, and kissed me on the lips. I don’t like it, I wish they wouldn’t have, but I wouldn’t run to The New York Times.”
