During a recent broadcast of “BBC Breakfast,” the host said that he repeatedly remarked on her physical appearance throughout the experience.

“He said, ‘You’re so beautiful, I’m going to leave the room to make myself look better, because if we do this interview now everyone is just going to be staring at you and not listening to me,'” McGovern said.

She made it clear that she believed the behavior was Trump’s effort to “disarm” her prior to the interview.

“He thought as a female journalist, he thought that was the best thing to say to me rather than, ‘Oh, I watched your piece on mobile phone insurance last week,'” McGovern added.

At the time, she said she brushed off the compliments, telling the real estate developer that she had heard better lines at a local club. To this day, she noted, the encounter makes her “feel sick.”
