“When we’re talking about this issue, this is sexual assault,” said Ellmers on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“So we’re accusing a man of sexual assault here, and I’m not going to debate who’s telling the truth here, but it is a ‘she said, he said’ situation.”

Tapper interrupted by saying, “Just to correct you, I’m sorry — it’s a she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said situation.”

The comment was a reference to the nine women who have come out with accusations that Trump has kissed or groped them without their consent.

The Trump campaign has denied all of the allegations.
