(Newser) – It's one thing to take a woman's accusations against you and claim they're false, and an entirely different thing to imply that, well, at least she's used to it. Donald Trump—lately accused by adult actress Jessica Drake of sexual misconduct in the form of hugging her tightly, forcibly kissing her, and offering her $10,000 to spend the night with him a decade ago—on Monday addressed those claims, reports CNN, telling WGIR in New Hampshire that they "are total fiction" and "made up." His full quote:

  • "I don't know these women, it's not my thing to do what they say. You know I don't do that. I don't grab them, as they say, on the arm. One said, 'he grabbed me on the arm.' And she's a porn star. You know, this one that came out recently, 'he grabbed me and he grabbed me on the arm.' Oh, I'm sure she's never been grabbed before. It's all lies, it's all lies, it was made up. It's like dripping water."
