In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Melania Trump had a message for people who pity her: 'Don't feel sorry for me. I can handle everything'
Trump said tapes and allegations have all been orchestrated by the 'left-wing media' and the Clinton campaign to deflect from Clinton's emails, Benghazi and Wikileaks
Trump added she and her husband knew tapes would come out because of Donald Trump's past working on various shows
Trump said tapes and allegations have all been orchestrated by the 'left-wing media' and the Clinton campaign.
She said its Hillary Clinton's way of deflecting from her emails, Benghazi and Wikileaks.
Trump added she and her husband knew tapes would come out because of Donald Trump's past working on various shows.
She attributed the lewd hot mic tape to 'boys talk'.
'Sometimes I say I have two boys at home. I have my young son, and I have my husband,' Trump said.
Cooper reminded her that her husband was 59 at the time he made the comments about grabbing women's genitals to Billy Bush in 2005.

She told Cooper when it comes to the women alleging Donald Trump made unwanted sexual contact that she believes her husband and not the women
When Cooper asked if she felt her husband was describing sexual assault, she said it wasn't and that women also behave inappropriately toward her husband all the time.
She even said it happens in front of her.
'It wasn't sexual assault. He didn’t say he did it. And I see many, many women come to him and give him phone numbers and, you know, want to work for him or [sic] unappropriate stuff from women.'
'They know he’s married. It was in front of me, and I said, like, "why you need to give your number to my husband?"'
She told Cooper when it comes to the women alleging Donald Trump made unwanted sexual contact that she believes her husband and not the women, and that this controversy has been a collaboration between the Clintons and the media.
'I believe my husband. I believe my husband. This was all organized from the opposition. And with the details that they got – did they ever check the background of these women? They don’t have any facts,' she said.
Trump told Cooper that allegations in general should be taken seriously but handled in a court of law.
When Cooper asked about Donald Trump talking about women's looks, Trump said it's just a part of who he is but that he still respects women.
'Well that’s him. He’s raw . He’ll say it as he feels it. I know he respects women but he’s defending himself because they’re (lying),' Trump told Cooper.
When it comes to sex scandals, Melania Trump said Bill Clinton's past is fair game, and implied Hillary's campaign was linked to the release of pictures which showed her naked and kissing another woman while she was a model.
It is her first an on-camera interview since her husband was exposed as saying he liked to grab women 'by the p****' on an 11-year old Access Hollywood tape.
Melania, who has been at his side at many of the televised highs of his presidential campaign and spoke at the Republican National Convention, also sat down with Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earnhardt.
She told CNN's Cooper that what had happened on the tape was 'boy talk' which she was not happy about.
'I said to my husband that you know the language was unappropriate [sic],' she told the anchor.
'It's not acceptable and I was surprised, because that is not the man that i know.
'And as you can see from the tape, the cameras were not on. It was only a mic.
'And I wonder if they even knew that the mic was on. Because they were kind of - ah - boy talk.
'And he was led on. Like egg on from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.
'I, I said to my husband that you know the language was unappropriate [sic]. It's not acceptable and I was surprised, because that is not the man that i know.'
Shortly after extracts from the interviews were released by CNN and Fox News, Bush was revealed to have agreed severance from the Today show, where he had moved from his long-running Access Hollywood role two months ago.
Trump sat down for an interview with Cooper for the first time since the airing of the explosive 'p****' tape featuring lewd comments by her husband
PHONING IT IN: Melania Trump also sat down with Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt for an interview that will air on Fox & Friends Tuesday
He's to blame: Melania Trump said Bill Bush 'egged on' her husband. Bush is involved in severance discussions with NBC in the wake of the leak.
Melania Trump hadn't given a TV interview since the Washington Post revealed p****gate
AWKWARD: Cooper posted a photo with Melania Trump on his Instagram page
Asked about the now infamous tape of her husband, Trump responded: 'This is not the man that I know. This is – we could see, as I always said, as my husband said, as well, for a successful businessman, entrepreneur, entertainer to achieving so much in his life, being in so many shows, so many tapes, it's very hard to run for public office.'
'And he did this anyway. He said, I want to help American people. I want to keep America safe. I want to bring back jobs, bring back economy, so our children, our futures will be the best way possible.'
On Thursday, after People magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff wrote a personal account of what she claims were Trump's efforts to force himself on her during an interview she was conducting with him at Mar-a-Lago in 2005, Melania Trump sent out a letter her lawyer had sent to the magazine demanding a retraction.
The article described Stonyoff as having run into Melania Trump after the interview.
Cooper has interviewed Trump previously during debates. Last week, he asked him about the infamous p**** tape
Melania Trump attended the second presidential debate wearing an outfit with a feature known as a 'p**** bow'
Melania Trump appeared with her husband after he delivered his acceptance speech in July
'The true facts are these: Mrs. Trump did not encounter Ms. Stoynoff on the street, or have any conversation with her. The two are not friends and were never friends or even friendly," her attorney, Charles Harder, wrote in the letter to People.
The businessman apologized after the Washington Post published the tape.
On Friday, the GOP nominee and his wife went to St Patrick's Cathedral for a private meeting with Archbishop of New York Timothy Cardinal Dolan.
Trump requested the meeting a 'few weeks ago', according to the cardinal's spokesman Joe Zwilling.
CNN teased the event by sending out a photo of the host and Melania Trump seated inside the Trump's gilded Trump Tower apartment. The network pitched the interview as one 'everyone has been waiting for.'
Melania Trump's media blitz comes after the Clinton camp has made hay out of the leaked tape. Hillary Clinton has kept her distance even as she has referenced Trump's treatment on the stump.
First lady Michelle Obama delivered a withering speech last week where, without mentioning Trump by name, she said the issue has 'shaken me to in a way that I couldn't have predicted.'
Donald Trump Kept Referring To Lil Jon As 'Uncle Tom' During Season 13 Of 'The Apprentice' (Video)
Heller is the ninth woman to accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. His campaign has dismissed her accusation as false
She was attending with her mother-in-law, her three children and husband when she said she was introduced to him as he made his way through the room.
'He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips,' she said.
She claims she held back but he persevered. 'And he said, ‘Oh, come on.’ He was strong. He grabbed me and went for my mouth and went for my lips.'
The Guardian quoted friends of Heller's who said she shared her tale with them years ago.
Trump's campaign furiously denied her account, claiming she was motivated by a personal vendetta to have her family's Mar-a-Lago membership fees refunded.
'The media has gone too far in making this false accusation.
'There is no way that something like this would have happened in a public place on Mother’s Day at Mr Trump’s resort,' spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement.
'It would have been the talk of Palm Beach for the past two decades.
'The reality is this: for the media to wheel out a politically motivated Democratic activist with a legal dispute against this same resort owned by Mr Trump does a disservice to the public, and anyone covering this story should be embarrassed for elevating this bogus claim.'
Cathy Heller says she was attending a Mother's Day lunch with her family at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida (above) when she was introduced to him
Trump's camp said such an incident would have been the 'talk of Mar-a-Lago for decades'. He is seen above in 1997, the same year in which his encounter with Helle allegedly happened, kissing former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado at the club. Machado said he fat-shamed her for gaining weight after winning the crown
Trump's campaign issued a furious denial of her claim on Saturday afternoon (above)
Heller admitted she is trying to have the money reimbursed.
She is the ninth woman to accuse Trump of groping or inappropriately kissing them in the past week.
Eight others, who say they were molested by him in incidents between 1979 and 2005, have spoken out.
They say they were motivated to do so when Trump vowed he had never made sexual advances on a woman without her consent at the second presidential debate on October 9.
He was forced to address the subject when 2005 tapes in which he jovially told of 'grabbing women by the p****' and treating them how he liked because he was a star, emerged.
He denies each of their varying accusations, claiming their accounts have been peddled by the media to elect Hillary Clinton.

Tasha Dixon told CBS News earlier this year walked into the changing rooms at the pageant without warning, meaning many of the competitors were naked or not fully dressed.
'Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half naked changing into our bikinis,' Dixon said in an interview. 'He just came strolling right in.

'No men are anywhere, and I'm allowed to go in, because I'm the owner of the pageant and therefore I'm inspecting it…. 'Is everyone OK'? You know, they're standing there with no clothes. 'Is everybody OK?'
'And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.'

'After (the meeting), Trump asked me to come into his office alone. Was really unsure what to do. ... Figured I could handle myself. Anyway, once in his office he kept telling me how special I am and gave me his cell, asked me to call him. I ran the hell out of there.'

'Do you also remember when he then proceeded to have us lined up so he could get a closer look at his property?
'Oh I forgot to mention that guy will be in the running to become the next President of the United States.'
She then added: 'He probably doesn't want me telling the story about that time he continually grabbed my a** and invited me to his hotel room.'
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to make the news for all the wrong reasons.
The Daily Beast reports that during the 13th season of NBC reality television show "The Apprentice," also know as "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,' Trump kept referring to Lil Jon as "Uncle Tom."
The controversy began during a segment in which the rapper dressed as Uncle Sam to promote hair-care products.
“Look, he’s Uncle Tom!” one show staffer recalls the business mogul saying twice.
"Uncle Tom" is a term used to describe black men who are excessively obedient or servile to white people.
Arsenio Hall, who was a guest judge during the episode, heard Trump using the offensive term and made it known he didn't like it.
“We kept trying to explain to [Trump] that that’s not a word you can use, that it’s offensive,” another Apprentice employee told The Daily Beast. “One of the executive producers had to call him up directly to [plead with] him not to say it, and Trump was like, ‘No, that’s a saying, it’s Uncle Tom.’ There are several takes in the footage of the dailies that has him trying to figure out the difference between ‘Uncle Tom’ and Uncle Sam. He just couldn’t grasp that it was offensive… When [Trump] decides he wants to do something, that’s his way.”
Lil Jon addressed the issue via his Twitter account on Friday, October 14th.
