Spicer: Any Trump affairs are 'between him, his wife, and his God'

Sean Spicer says any infidelity President Trump may have committed is between "him, his wife and his God."

Asked Wednesday during on appearance on NBC's "Access Live" whether he believes allegations from multiple women that they had extramarital affairs with Trump, the former White House press secretary replied, "We are rushing too quick to judge people in society."

"The Republican Party stood for family values. And if our president is the philanderer-in-chief, don't you think the American public deserves to know that?" co-anchor Natalie Morales asked.

"Look, that's between him, his wife, and his God," said the ex-Trump spokesman.

"But don't you think you give up that ability to keep it between your wife and your God when you become president of the United States?" pressed guest correspondent Mike Catherwood.

"Not if it didn't happen while he was in office," said Spicer, author of the new book "The Briefing," about his time working in the Trump administration.

"That absolves him of all guilt?" Morales asked.

"Again, I think that's between him and his wife, what he may or may not have done. Or what he said he did or didn't do," replied Spicer.

Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels are embroiled in legal battles stemming from allegations that they had affairs with Trump years before before he made a White House run.

McDougal, a former Playboy model, is suing the owner of the National Enquirer, saying the company paid her $150,000 for a story about the alleged affair, but then withheld it from publication.

Daniels, an adult film star whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was paid $130,000 by Trump's longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, just before the 2016 election and says that the payment was to keep her quiet about an affair with Trump. She is now suing the president to void a nondisclosure agreement.

Trump, who married Melania Trump in 2005, has denied the allegations from McDougal and Daniels.

Asked by Morales about "payments being made," Spicer said Wednesday, "If it's illegal, Natalie, then I get it. And again, this is not something I'm dealing with now, nor... that I spend a ton of time thinking about."

"I don't know," Spicer added of Trump. "It's between him, and these individuals and his wife."
