The Washington Post reports tonight that GOP Presidential Nominee Donald Trump used some less-than-delicate words to describe a woman he was trying to “move on” in 2005, bragging in what the Post calls “vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women”. Trump can be heard saying, “when you’re a star, they let you do it.”
The video captures Trump talking with Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood” on a bus with Access Hollywood written across the side. They were arriving on the set of “Days of Our Lives” to tape a segment about Trump’s upcoming cameo on the soap opera.
The tape obtained by the Post includes audio of Bush and Trump’s conversation inside the bus, as well as audio and video once they emerge from it to begin shooting the segment.
According to the Post:
Trump discusses a failed attempt to seduce a woman, whose full name is not given in the video.
I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it,” Trump is heard saying. It was unclear when the events he was describing took place. The tape was recorded several months after he married his third wife, Melania.
“Whoa,” another voice said.
“I did try and f— her. She was married,” Trump says.
Trump continues: “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.’”
As the bus approached the studio, Trump felt the need to freshen his breath — just in case.
“I’ve gotta use some tic tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump says.“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 says. “You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want,” says another voice, apparently Bush’s.
“Grab them by the p—y,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”
This recording will no doubt be played time and time again in the leadup to Sunday’s second Presidential debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, a fact seemingly not lost on Trump as he was asked about the recording.
“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.”
A spokeswoman for NBC Universal, which produces and distributes “Access Hollywood,” declined comment.
This topic will be the lead story on tonight’s edition of “The Fat Man”, airing at 6pm CT on Blog Talk Radio.
