Donald Trump comes across sounding like a sexual predator in the latest scandal breaking today. Trump on Hot Mic: ‘When You’re a Star … You Can Do Anything’ to Women:
A decade before Donald Trump became the Republican nominee for president, his candid views on women were caught on tape.
Image above is from the NBC embedded audio. Here is another link to the audio on YouTube. Donald Trump & Billy Bush’s Conversation About Women Trump recorded lewd conversation about women.
“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet,” Trump said in a 2005 conversation with Billy Bush, at the time an anchor for Access Hollywood, in crude, coarse language. “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab ’em by the pussy.”

In the 2005 recording obtained by NBC News from Access Hollywood, Trump, then newly married to Melania Trump, spots a young woman through the bus window.
“Woah, woah,” he said to Bush about the woman’s appearance. “I gotta use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her.”
Earlier in the conversation, Trump recalls talking about trying to woo a married woman.
“I moved on her actually, she was down in Palm Beach and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try to fuck her, she was married … and I moved on her very heavily,” Trump is heard saying.
“I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture and I told her ‘I’ll show you where you can get some nice furniture,'” Trump is heard saying. “I moved on her like a bitch, and I could not get there, and she was married. And all the sudden I see her and she’s got the big phony tits, she’s totally changed her look.”
The Donald’s response after release of the audio tape was not to deny that he said it, but to deflect: Bill Clinton!
“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 prepared statement. “I apologize if anyone was offended.”
Oh, the non-apology apology. The ladies are gonna love that.
Looks like The Donald’s already bad week just got a whole lot worse.
