A former Apprentice contestant has suddenly come out to make a claim that Donald Trump made sexual advances towards her…We’ve all heard this song and dance before. This case especially doesn’t pass the smell test. It especially doesn’t sound right to the cousin of the accuser who’s bewildered by the claim:
“I am completely shocked and bewildered by my cousin”
The cousin of one of the women who has accused Donald Trump of sexual assault questioned her story as an attempt to get back on television.
Trump’s campaign released a statement on Friday from John Barry to rebut allegations by his cousin Summer Zervos, a former Apprentice contestant who claimed Trump made unwanted sexual advances toward her.
“I am completely shocked and bewildered by my cousin, Summer Zervos, and her press conference today,” Barry said in the statement. “Ever since she was on The Apprentice she has had nothing but glowing things to say about Mr. Trump. For almost a decade, my cousin would talk about how much she looked up to Mr. Trump and viewed him as an inspiration – a success story she wanted to copy.”
According to Barry, Zervos had praised Trump as kind and caring and “she converted her friends and our family to become Trump supporters.”

An email from Zervos to Trump’s secretary from April 14, 2016 was also released by the GOP nominee’s campaign. Zervos wrote about her California restaurant and said she wanted to reconnect with Trump:
