A FORMER model who accused President Donald Trump of shoving his tongue down her throat decades ago kept in contact with him after the incident without fear, her friends claim.
Amy Dorris’ recent allegations that Trump forced his tongue into her mouth and groped her at the 1997 US Open tennis tournament were shocking to her former roommate.
“Amy never talked about Donald Trump like she was scared of him,” the roommate, Stacey Plymale, told the Daily Mail on Tuesday.
“It was a surprise to hear her story.”
Plymale moved into an apartment with Dorris and another woman in Boca Raton, Florida, in June 1998, according to public records obtained by the Daily Mail, and she was not the only one to observe Dorris’ continued interactions with Trump.
Shaun Plymale, a personal injury lawyer who was dating Stacey at the time and later became her husband, said he saw calls coming into the apartment from the future president multiple times.

“I used to see the name Trump on their caller ID,” he said.
“I know it was for Amy because she was the only one who had those connections.”
Shaun Plymale recalled conversations about Dorris getting flown in Trump’s jet to New York for the US Open—apparently in September 1998, a year after the alleged sexual impropriety.
“I remember this because I tried to talk Amy into getting me on Trump’s private jet to New York, but in the end, no one went up,” he said.
“She never mentioned being afraid or worried about being near Trump, that’s for sure.”
In an interview last week, Dorris, 48, claimed that Trump assaulted her in his VIP box at the tournament on September 5, 1997.
“He just shoved his tongue down my throat and I was pushing him off, and then that’s when his grip became tighter and his hands were very gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything,” said Dorris, who was then 24 years old.

“I was in his grip, and I couldn’t get out of it. I don’t know what you call that when you’re sticking your tongue just down someone’s throat. But I pushed it out with my teeth. I was pushing it. And I think I might have hurt his tongue.”
Dorris’ boyfriend at the time, Miami publisher Jason Binn, supposedly introduced her to Trump in the days leading up to the US Open and was in the VIP box during the incident.
Trump, who was married to his second wife Marla Maples at the time, has denied Dorris’ allegations.
