Man Accused Of Groping Woman’s Breast During Flight: Trump Says It’s ‘OK’
A 49-year-old man — accused of groping a woman on a Southwest Airlines flight on Oct. 21 — reportedly tried to justify himself by citing President Donald Trump’s infamous statement about grabbing women by their sexual organs.
Bruce Alexander, who was charged with abusive sexual contact, reportedly told investigators that the “President of the United States [Donald Trump] says it’s ok to grab women by their private parts.”
Alexander was seated behind a woman who said she fell asleep, felt her clothes move and a “touching of fingers on her right side at and around her ‘bra line,'” notes Law & Crime.
The woman felt it happened again about 30 minutes later during the flight Southwest Airlines flight from Houston to Albuquerque.
The woman said that she saw a “hand that had thick fingers, [that] were hairy and had dirty fingernails.”
She reportedly stood up, told Alexander to stop and asked to moved to a different seat, which Southwest Airlines did.
Alexander was arrested at the Albuquerque International Sunport where he allegedly used the Trump defense.
If convicted, Alexander could go to prison for a maximum of two years and be ordered to pay a fine of up to $250,000.
