It’s really no secret that most people in Hollywood despise Trump. Many celebs have spoken out about Trump’s divisive behavior and rhetoric. Big names, such as George Clooney and Alec Baldwin, have openly criticized Trump for trying to tear apart our nation. Now another famous celeb is speaking out about her experience with Trump in the past.
Actress Kathleen Turner revealed her less than pleasant meeting with President Trump in a new interview detailing a handshake with the controversial leader as “gross.”
While speaking to Vulture during an interview, the actress offered up a harsh description of shaking hands with the then-reality TV star when the two had met in the years before the 2016 election.
“He has this gross handshake,” Turner said of Trump, who she had supposedly met at a party in New York City.
“He goes to shake your hand and, with his index finger, kind of rubs the inside of your wrist,” she said. “He’s trying to do some kind of seductive intimacy move. You pull your hand away and go yuck.”
Trump was described by his rivals as being a “germaphobe” during the presidential election after a page from his 1997 book “The Art of the Comeback” resurfaced in which Trump had written that pressing the flesh “is one of the curses of American society” even going as far as to label shaking hands “barbaric.”
Trump has since insisted that he has changed his opinion about handshakes and suggested in the months leading up to the 2016 election that shaking thousands of hands “hasn’t been tough.”
“I’m a politician,” Trump had affirmed at the time during an interview.
“Can you imagine if I said I won’t shake anybody’s hand?” Trump said.
Trump also faced scrutiny for his unorthodox handshakes; he is often seen yanking those he shakes hands with forward in a bizarre power move.
