WATCH: Trump Flips The Script On Lawyer In Viral Video – ‘I Hope You’re Not Insulted’

In a current court action brought by E. Jean Carroll, a judge on Friday ordered the release of video from 45th President Donald Trump’s deposition in which the prosecution accuses Trump of raping Carroll in a 1996 incident.

Since then, a video of the deposition has gone viral, in which Trump once more reveals his true character. Leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was questioned by the prosecution’s attorney about Jessica Leads, a witness they had called who said that Trump had sexually abused her on a flight in the late 1970s.

“When you said in that video that Ms. Leeds would not be your first choice, you were referring to her physical looks, correct?” the prosecutor asked Trump.

“Just the overall. I look at her, I see her, I hear what she says,” Trump said in response. “Whatever. You wouldn’t be a choice of mine either, I hope you’re not insulted. I would not under any circumstances have any interest in you. I’m being honest when I say it. She, I would not have any interest in.”

Trump’s case is presently pending in civil court, so even if he is held responsible for the incident, he won’t face any criminal repercussions. But he would face financial repercussions.

According to Politico, the alleged event took place on a Thursday night in the spring of 1996 in a changing room in the lingerie section on the sixth floor of Bergdorf Goodman. Although it appears that Carroll first made the complaint in 2019, the prosecution has presented two witnesses who claim that Carroll told them about the alleged rape soon after it happened.

President Trump repeatedly denied the allegation saying during his deposition, “It didn’t happen. And by the way, if it did happen, it would have been reported within minutes. Talking about going to a major floor, probably I assumed the most important floor, a major floor in a major department store. That’s a very busy store, by the way, checkout counters and everything else. And I would be in there– I mean, it’s the most ridiculous. It’s the most ridiculous disgusting story is just made up.”

On Thursday, both Carroll and Trump rested their cases in the civil trial. Trump was sued by Carroll in Manhattan federal court for battery over the alleged rape, and for defamation over social media comments Trump made last year accusing Carroll of promoting a “hoax.” He maintains the alleged incident “never happened.”

Trump’s lawyers didn’t see the need to call any witnesses to testify on his behalf, perhaps because the facts of the case stand alone proving his innocence and the cross-examination of 11 witnesses for Carroll would discredit her claims.
