Trump Drops ‘Hannity’ Interview Amid New Sexual Misconduct Allegations

October 13, 2016 12:53 pm

Donald Trump cancelled a Thursday appearance on Fox News talking head Sean Hannity’s show amid a flood of fresh accusations from women who say that the GOP nominee touched them inappropriately.

Trump had been scheduled to appear on “Hannity” on Thursday night, according to a CNN Money report, but backed out just before noon.

A Fox spokesperson told TPM that the interview with Trump would be rescheduled, but did not provide further details.

According to CNN, “CBS This Morning” hosts also had difficulty getting hold of a Trump representative to discuss the groping allegations.

“We asked the Trump Organization to provide someone to talk to us, but it was unable to do so,” Norah O’Donnell noted, according to the report.

Fox News is still set to air a special program Thursday night hosted by Hannity that features three women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct, according to CNN.

Multiple women came forward in stories published Wednesday with their accounts of being groped or forcibly kissed by Donald Trump.

The Trump campaign has denied the allegations made by two women in one report by the New York Times as “fiction.”
