The British journalist recalls feeling "sick," but her response to his attempt at flattery is just priceless.
BBC anchor Steph McGovern had a cringeworthy experience to share with the world: she was once hit on by Donald Trump right before an on-camera interview.
While appearing as a guest host on BBC One's talk show "Have I Got News For You," the journalist gagged while recalling interviewing the former reality star in 2012.
"I've once met Trump, McGovern said. "[It] just makes me feel a bit sick just thinking of that... He was creepy, man."
When another panelist asked what Trump said to her, McGovern said that POTUS told her that she was "so beautiful" that he needed to "leave the room" to make himself "look better."
"'If we do this interview now, everyone is just going to be staring at you and not listening to me,'" McGovern recalled Trump's words.
This was where McGovern pretended to gag.
"He thought that would be the best way to disarm me," the BBC Breakfast host said. "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."'
As a professional, McGovern said she was unfazed by Trump's comments and simply replied, "Aye love, I've heard better lines than that down Club Bongo."
