Arianne Zucker “Today” Show Video: Watch Donald Trump Interview
Arianne Zucker’s first interview about the now-infamous Donald Trump tape was broadcast on Thursday’s “Today” show. Watch below.
As Gossip Cop reported, less than a week ago footage emerged showing Trump talking lewdly about sex with women while wired for an “Access Hollywood” interview with Billy Bush. The two going to the set of “Days Of Our Lives,” where the mogul was to film a cameo on the show, and Bush distastefully referred to Zucker as “hot as sh*t.” The video, shot in 2005, went on to show Bush pushing Zucker to give Trump a hug, even though the businessman had just spoken about forcibly kissing her.
Of course, at the time, Zucker was unaware of Bush and Trump’s conversation. But now she’s been thrust into the national spotlight. While that was certainly unexpected, the actress says she’s not actually surprised by Trump’s remarks.
Speaking with NBC’s Janet Shamlian, Zucker said, “Not with that type of personality, I wasn’t shocked.” Of Billy Bush she said, “Who knows how he was feeling when he walked off the bus or what he needed to do in the relationship? Because when he came off the bus with Mr. Trump, I had no feeling but professional.”
Still, of the men’s conversation, Zucker stated, “They are offensive comments for women, period.” And, referring to Trump’s “locker-room banter” statement, the soap star said, “That was an interesting apology.” But she hasn’t personally heard from the Trump campaign.
Zucker, who would not reveal for whom she’s voting in the election, said she hopes to use the situation for “positivity,” turning it into a teaching moment for her daughter and others. Check out the video below.
