This stunning statement prompted Carroll's lawyer Roberta Kaplan to ask Trump to confirm an admission of rape: "So, sir, I just want to confirm: It’s your testimony that E. Jean Carroll said that she loved being sexually assaulted by you?"
Trump answered: "Well, based on her interview with Anderson Cooper, I believe that’s what took place. And we can define that... I think she said that rape was sexy – which it’s not, by the way."
In another stunning development, reports have revealed that Trump misidentified a photo of Carroll as his ex-wife Marla Maples. The black and white photo, which Kaplan showed him during his deposition, depicts Trump with Carroll and his first wife Ivana. Trump pointed to the photo and said "It's Marla" before being corrected by Kaplan, a remark that has stuck out given Trump's repeated insistence that Carroll wasn't his type.
