Barbara Corcoran from ‘Shark Tank’ Says Donald Trump Compared Her Breast Size To His Wife

After a tape was released a few weeks ago of Presidential candidate Donald Trump discussing how he can do anything to women because he is “a star”, numerous women have come forward claiming that in fact, that is exactly what he did to them. 

The most recent woman to face the media is Barbara Corcoran, one of the investors on ABC’s Shark Tank. According to Vulture, Corcoran recently sat down with CNN’s Erin Burnett and said that she had an extremely uncomfortable experience with Trump at a business meeting in the early 1990s. “I was pregnant with my first child at the time, and so was his second wife,” she said to Burnett. “He compared my breast size to his wife by putting his hands in the air. I was in a business meeting! I was shocked … I did think afterward, how would I have felt if I had been a young woman, not a successful businesswoman, and been in a situation like that? I would have felt very compromised.”

When asked what she thinks about Trump claiming to never have done anything like this, she said that “I just think it’s preposterous that he’s claiming he’s done nothing like that,” when in fact, “He’s been that way, always.” 

And based on the dozens of other women that have come forward, that statement is looking more and more accurate.
