On Wednesday, Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Georgia) said she was “not familiar” with President Donald Trump‘s Access Hollywood tape. The tape was made public during the president’s 2016 campaign and showed Trump boasting about sexually assaulting women.
When asked by CNN, the senator said she has “no” issues or disagreements with the president. Loeffler has mentioned her alliance with Trump in her own Senate race campaign and claimed to vote for Trump “100% of the time.”
One of NBC’s Atlanta station’s reporters pressed Loeffler for a reaction to the Hollywood tape. She sidestepped his questions by commenting on how she agreed with Trump’s approach “since Day One to put America first.
The reporter clarified his question and asked for the senator’s opinion on Trump’s statements on “personally sexually assaulting women.”
Loeffler responded, “I’m not familiar with that.”
She quickly moved on from the topic by bringing up Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
The senator said, “The president is fighting for America. That’s what I’m fighting for – to make sure that every American has their chance to live the American dream and against the socialist policies that Joe Biden is espousing every day.”
Loeffler is currently running behind in her U.S. Senate race to a seat she was appointed to by Gov. Brian Kemp (R-Georgia).
