Donald Trump has found himself in hot water this week after video footage surfaced of him bragging in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone
The Washington Post reported that the video features audio from a discussion Trump had with Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood” on a bus as they arrived at the set of “Days of Our Lives” to tape a segment about Trump’s upcoming cameo on the soap opera. In the audio, Trump discusses a failed attempt of his to hit on a woman.
“I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it,” Trump is heard saying, even though this was months after he married his third wife Melania Trump.
“Whoa,” another voice said.
“I did try and f— her. She was married,” Trump said. “And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.’”
“I moved on her like a b*tch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married,” Trump continued. “Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”
It was then that Bush and Trump noticed Arianne Zucker, the actress who was sent to escort them to the set.
“Your girl’s hot as s—, in the purple,” said Bush.
“Whoa!” Trump exclaimed. “Whoa!”
“I’ve gotta use some tic tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump said.“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”
“And when you’re a star they let you do it,” Trump added. “You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want,” Bush said.
“Grab them by the p—y,” Trump said. “You can do anything.”
Trump released a statement immediately after the video was released.
“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close,” Trump said in a statement. “I apologize if anyone was offended.”
