After Groping Woman, Man Claims That President Trump Okayed it

After Groping Woman, Man Claims That President Trump Okayed it

He later told investigators that "the President of the United States says it's OK to grab women by their private parts", referring to a 2005 recording in which Trump said that, as a star, "you can do anything", including grabbing a woman's genitals.

Prosecutors say that this happened on a Southwest Airlines flight from Houston, Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The victim claims that she awoke to the passenger behind her touching her "around her bra line", according to the affidavit.

A conviction of abusive sexual contact would carry a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a fine of $250,000 (£193,000).

Alexander made the comment about the president to an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, in an apparent reference to a 2005 conversation caught on video by Access Hollywood in which Donald Trump bragged in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women. In a second incident 30 minutes later, she said she felt Alexander's hand grab the back of her arm and grope around her ribs and then her breast.

It all began about 15 to 20 minutes after Southwest Airlines Flight 5421 left Houston on Sunday.

The England worldwide was unleashed with 20 minutes to play and was tasked with earning the Blues all three points. Jose Mourinho is a lightning rod, for good or bad.

However, agents noticed his thick fingers with dirty nails and dark hair matched the description the woman provided of the hands she said had groped her, according to the complaint. The woman said she stood up and told the passenger behind her to stop.

The woman was identified in court documents as "C.W". "You can do anything", Trump said. "Our reports indicate that during the flight, the crew reseated at least one customer onboard", Southwest told TIME. He also said he slept for most of the flight and wasn't drinking or taking sleep medication.

Whether or not Alexander was really emboldened by Trump to commit sexual assault, or simply used Trump as a convenient excuse after getting caught, there is no denying that Trump's behavior is setting a dark example.

The Southwest spokesperson told The Post the airline is "continuously reviewing and updating our training as necessary", but declined to share any specifics.

He remains in custody, with his preliminary hearing scheduled for today.
