LOS ANGELES — Jessica Drake, in an MSNBC interview yesterday, defended another adult superstar, Stormy Daniels, as well as other women who have spoken publicly about President Trump’s sexual advances before he took office.
“I’m speaking out now not only to support Stormy [Daniels], but because women deserve to be heard and believed,” Drake told MSNBC’s Ari Melber in the 11-minute interview.
Drake was one of a handful of women who came forward this past fall with stories about nonconsensual sexual advances made by Trump. Soon after Drake alleged that Trump kissed her and two other women against her will at a 2006 golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, Nev.
Drake claims that she was invited to meet with Trump, who was married at the time, at his hotel suite. After leaving, Drake claims she received phone calls from Trump or his associate, requesting that she join him in his suite for $10,000 and be flown back to Los Angeles. She said she declined his offer.
Drake, who was accompanied by her legal counsel, Gloria Allred, on MSNBC, said she didn’t feel paying for sex was an issue, but that Trump’s aggressiveness was.
“What was so offensive to me was when I initially met him and was in his hotel room, he grabbed me and kissed me without my consent,” said Drake, a longtime adult star, sexual health educator and host of the 2018 XBIZ Awards held in January.
“I am an adult performer, I also identify as a sex worker,” she said. “What was not OK with me was that the physical contact that he made with me that night in his hotel room was without my consent, and when he did start asking to spend additional time with me that night, he wasn’t really taking no for an answer and he was upping the ante every single time i turned him down.”
“Simply by my profession, people are under the mistaken impression that we are always available for hire.”
