Michael Gove has announced that he too knows how it feels to be in the presence of a sexual predator.
“When he was President-elect, Donald Trump invited me up to his penthouse in Trump Tower in New York,” said Gove.
“I went up in a gold lift operated by an immensely dignified African-American attendant kitted out in frock coat and white gloves.
The Tory Environment Secretary continued his thoughts.
“I thought I was just going to interview Mr Trump for The Times and I was surprised to find Rupert Murdoch in the room too,” explained Gove.
“Trump then invited me to join them in a threesome.
“He said that many other A-list journalists had done it and if I wanted to have a successful career, I should cooperate.
“I felt trapped. He’s a large, powerful and domineering man. I felt I had no choice, so I did what he asked me.
“I didn’t tell anyone about it because I felt so ashamed but now other journalists have spoken about similar experiences, I have found the strength to discuss it.”
