Two more women have come forward to accuse Donald Trump of inappropriate sexual touching. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice says Trump grabbed her breasts, kissed her without consent, "thrust his genitals" at her, and tried to get her into his bed to watch "telly-telly" during a meeting about a job in 2007, the Hill reports. During a press conference Friday, Zervos said that after she rebuffed Trump's advances, her job offer was cut in half then rescinded entirely. Earlier, Kristin Anderson told her story to the Washington Post: She was at a Manhattan nightclub in the early 1990s when Trump sat next to her on a couch and groped her, touching her inner thigh and vagina through her underwear and underneath her skirt, she says. At the time, she was trying to get into the modeling industry.

"It wasn’t a sexual come-on. I don’t know why he did it. It was like just to prove that he could do it, and nothing would happen," Anderson says. "There was zero conversation. We didn’t even really look at each other. It was very random, very nonchalant on his part." She and her friends came to the conclusion that, "OK, Donald is gross. We all know he's gross. Let's just move on," she says. The incident lasted half a minute or less before she pushed his hand away and got off the couch. Anderson, now 46, has told the story to friends over the years, and a person who had heard the story contacted the Post to get in touch with Anderson, but she did not decide to go public with her story until after the 2005 video in which Trump can be heard bragging about grabbing women "by the p---y" was leaked. NPR is keeping an ongoing list of women who have accused Trump of inappropriate sexual contact. (More Donald Trump stories.)
