Melania Trump, in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper broadcast Monday night, said her husband, Donald Trump, engaged in "boy talk" and was "egged on" by "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush "to say dirty and bad stuff."

Sounding like her husband, Melania Trump also spoke extensively about a major theme of the Trump campaign this week — that the media is conspiring to “rig” the election in favor of Clinton. The timing of the release of the “Access Hollywood” tape the Friday before the second debate, like the release of three pages of his tax returns the weekend before the first debate, were evidence of that, she said.
