Trump-boosting singer Joy Villa says she found herself in tears while speaking to investigators Thursday about her claim that the president’s former campaign manager crudely slapped her at a Washington party.

“This is not easy. I understand why so many women don’t come forward. I mean, I cried. It was very hard for me to tell the story again,” Villa told Newsweek after police interviewed her about allegations that Corey Lewandowski painfully smacked her rear at the Trump International Hotel exactly a month ago…

“A lot of shame came in, even to me making excuses, to where I said, ‘I know this is not something worse. I know this is not a rape,'” she recalled. “The detective had to correct me and [say], ‘This is a sexual assault, and we are taking it just as serious as it should be taken, and even though you’re someone who’s notable, no one deserves to be touched when they don’t want to be touched.'”
