The “Days Off Our Lives” actress that Donald Trump and Billy Bush discussed in a 2005 recording said their comments don’t mean a lot to her.
Arianne Zucker appeared on the “Today” show Thursday morning to discuss the comments made about her in her first interviews since the recording was leaked. Trump and Bush’s discussion happened just moments before the two met Zucker on set for Trump’s “Days of Our Live” cameo.
“Not with that type of personality, I wasn’t shocked. Which is probably why it doesn’t mean a lot to me,” Zucker said in the interview.
“I gotta use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her,” Trump said in the recording, referring to Zucker. “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
Zucker said when Trump and Bush arrived on the bus it seemed they “had no feeling, but professional, that’s it.” But said the things said about her “are offensive comments for women, period.”
“I think men can learn from this of how not to be in front of women or when they’re speaking about women,” Zucker said in the interview.
Trump has apologized for his comments and repeatedly referred to them as “locker room” banter. Bush is reportedly negotiating his exit from the “Today” Show as a result of the leaked tape.
