Former WWE Divas champ Eve Torres took to Instragram on Monday to celebrate Presidents Day by making accusations against the current president.
Eve Torres Gracie, who married into the Gracie martial arts family, posted to Intragram on Monday about an uncomfortable interaction she had with Trump, years before he made a run at the White House, when he was working with WWE for the lead-up to Wrestlemania,

Happy Presidents Day. I look forward to having a president who doesn’t grope or objectify women. I have taken pictures with thousands of men at military bases, at WWE events, and signings, and very few have grabbed me and pulled me in as forcefully as he did without knowing me. Of course, at the time I believed it was my job to be eye candy in a photo for this supposed billionaire, and play along. It is actually hard for me to see that photo because it reminds me of my beliefs about my worth at the time. Swipe to see what I mean. Swipe again for a brush up on Creepy Hug Defenses including the Inappropriate Photo Squeeze. PS The pregnancy announcement is old so no I’m not pregnant again. Also, this was scary for me to post but it’s been on my mind. We haven’t forgotten about your p+$$y grabbing, Mr. President.
Its no surprise that the response to Gracie's post has been mixed, with some dismissing the president's actions as innocent, acceptable, or expected in the situation, and others saying they're sadly not surprised given the previous accusations made against Trump in regards to his actions towards women.
It remains to be seen how WWE will respond to this accusation, as the company is known to stand by current and former employees who have made similar accusations in the past, but Linda McMahon, Vince's wife and former President of WWE, currently serves in Trump's cabinet.
