A video of President Donald Trump turning the tables on a lawyer during a deposition has gone viral on social media.
The footage is from Trump’s fall 2022 deposition in the E. Jean Carroll civil “rape” case.
It was released per a judge’s order on Friday, and a clip went viral.
In the case, accuser Jessica Leeds has testified on behalf of Carroll.
It shows Trump speaking his mind as to exactly what he thought of both Leeds and the attorney who was deposing him at the time.
In the clip, Trump was asked, “When you said in that video that Ms. Leeds would not be your first choice, you were referring to her physical looks, correct?”
“Just the overall,” Trump replied.
“I look at her, I see her, I hear what she says. Whatever.
“You wouldn’t be a choice of mine either, I hope you’re not insulted.
“I would not under any circumstances have any interest in you.
“I’m being honest when I say it.
“She, I would not have any interest in.”
The Ms. Leeds referred to in the video is Jessica Leeds, who came forward in 2016 to allege Donald Trump groped her on an airplane in the 1980s. https://t.co/kYFcWSiLtv

Leeds accused Trump of groping her on an airplane back in the 1990s, which is the same era as Carroll’s allegations.
She also claims Trump kissed her in the first-class cabin.
Carroll brought the suit, claiming that Trump raped her in the Bergdorf Goodman department store dressing room in New York in the 1990s.
Trump has denied the allegations entirely.
“It didn’t happen,” he said in the deposition.
“And by the way, if it did happen, it would have been reported within minutes.
“Talking about going to a major floor, probably I assumed the most important floor, a major floor in a major department store.
“That’s a very busy store, by the way, checkout counters and everything else.
“And I would be in there– I mean, it’s the most ridiculous.
“It’s the most ridiculous disgusting story is just made up.”
The New York jury in the case heard and saw the deposition this week.
Because this is a civil case, any verdict has to do with whether or not it is likely or unlikely that Trump committed the act, and could have financial, though no criminal liability for the leading 2024 GOP presidential candidate.
As Slay News previously reported, Carroll’s lawsuit is being funded by anti-Trump activist and billionaire LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman.
It emerged earlier this week that Hoffman was closely linked to Jeffrey Epstein and was a frequent guest at the deceased sex trafficker’s notorious “Pedophile Island.”
