People writer Natasha Stoynoff wrote an essay about being groped at Mar-a-Lago while interviewing the family more than ten years ago.
In the essay, Ms. Stoynoff wrote:
We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat.
Now, I’m a tall, strapping girl who grew up wrestling two giant brothers. I even once sparred with Mike Tyson. It takes a lot to push me. But Trump is much bigger — a looming figure — and he was fast, taking me by surprise and throwing me off balance. I was stunned. And I was grateful when Trump’s longtime butler burst into the room a minute later, as I tried to unpin myself.
The butler informed us that Melania would be down momentarily, and it was time to resume the interview.
The only problem is the longtime butler Anthony Senecal said the incident “never happened”.
The Palm Beach Post quoted Mr. Senecal saying it was “bull crap”.
“No, that never happened. Come on, that’s just bull crap,” said Anthony “Tony” Senecal.
Also, in the essay, Ms. Stoynoff wrote:
I asked to be taken off the Trump beat, and I never interviewed him again. A few months later, I saw Trump at the memorial service of a mutual friend, designer Oleg Cassini. We were both giving eulogies, but I avoided him. That winter, I actually bumped into Melania on Fifth Avenue, in front of Trump Tower as she walked into the building, carrying baby Barron.
“Natasha, why don’t we see you anymore?” she asked, giving me a hug.
I was quiet and smiled, telling her I’d missed her, and I squeezed little Barron’s foot. I couldn’t discern what she knew. Did she really not guess why I hadn’t been around?
Melania Trump, wife of Donald Trump, said that never happened either and she sent a cease and desist letter to People Magazine on Thursday for publishing a fraudulent article on Mrs. Donald Trump.

Mr. Senecal is very controversial and has allegedly prompted a Secret Service investigation for comments he made on Facebook, comments he stood by. He said something to the effect that Obama is a traitor who should be hung from the White Mosque.
Mr. Senecal is being lambasted, Ms. Stoynoff is being lambasted, and we are right where we started from though Mr. Trump has two witnesses and Ms. Stoynoff has none. Trump should do what Hillary does with the Wikileaks, just ignore it.
