Singer and Trump supporter Joy Villa, who garnered attention earlier this year for the "Make America Great Again" dress she wore to the Grammys, has claimed that former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of unwanted sexual touching.
Villa, 31, said she was circulating in the ballroom of the invite-only party with a friend, who brought her over to introduce her to Lewandowski, whom she had never met. Her first impression, she said, was that he seemed dismissive of her, and rolled his eyes when he thought she wanted to pose for a photo with him.
The two ended up taking a photo together, and after it was finished, Villa claims Lewandowski touched her inappropriately:
“I’m wearing this silver suit and stretchy pants, and after the photo, he smacks my ass really hard,” Villa said. “It was completely demeaning and shocking.”
Villa said she half-jokingly told him she could report him for sexual harassment, and Lewandowski's response shocked her:
“He said, ‘Go ahead, I work in the private sector,’” Villa recalled. “Then he smacks my ass again.” Villa’s recollection of the incident was corroborated by a friend who witnessed the exchange.
Politico reports that Lewandowski ignored multiple requests for comment.
