Melania Trump is speaking out about Donald Trump‘s offensive audio tape and sexual assault allegations for the first time in this sit down interview with Anderson Cooper.

The 46-year-old former model and wife of Donald Trump said her husband was engaging in “boy talk, and he was led on — like, egged on — from the host [Billy Bush] to say dirty and bad stuff.” Billy was the other voice heard in the audio with Donald.

Melania also said, “I said to my husband that, you know, the language was inappropriate. It’s not acceptable. And I was surprised, because that is not the man that I know. And as you can see from the tape, the cameras were not on — it was only a mic. And I wonder if they even knew that the mic was on.”
