Just wow.

This is unedited From NBCNews

A decade before Donald Trump became the Republican nominee for president, his candid views on women were caught on tape.

"I'm automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it's like a magnet," Trump said in 2005 during a conversation with Billy Bush caught on audio during the taping of an interview for Access Hollywood. "I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab 'em by the *****."

Who isn't automatically attracted to beautiful women?

I think that's a pretty engrained, autonomic response.

(for most men)
Here is the transcript word for word, there's also audio and believe me, it sounds just as bad when he's saying it. FYI this is a copy and paste, we should expect the filter to catch some of the words.


“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.’”

“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married,” Trump says. “Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”

At that point in the audio, Trump and Bush appear to notice Arianne Zucker, the actress who is waiting to escort them into the soap opera set.

“Your girl’s hot as s---, in the purple,” says Bush, who’s now a co-host of NBC’s “Today” show.

“Whoa!” Trump says. “Whoa!”


“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.”

A spokeswoman for NBC Universal, which produces and distributes “Access Hollywood,” declined comment.

“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.”

Yeah. That about sums up every day for me. :confused:

How about that time he said liked his baby daughter's legs, and he looks forward to seeing her have nice tits too?

"She's a really beautiful baby, and she's got Marla's legs." Then Trump motions to his chest and adds, "We don't know whether she's got this part yet, but time will tell."


Is that also an automatic thing normal men feel about their own daughters? I must not be normal...

This sounds like what I hear in the changing rooms at my gym four days a week.

Was this the October surprise I was promised? Disappointing.

It sure is convenient being a misogynistic Trump supporter who bashes Hillary for an affair her husband had but lets Trump off the hook for the same thing while excusing the way he humiliates women.

Trump supporters are all class.

Meh. I hate Trump but in all honesty I've heard much more vulgar comments about women coming from the mouths of straight men.
Let's see if the electorate has the same low expectations of what we should expect from the leader of the free world.

that doesn't make any abuse right. thats just straight victim blaming. stockholm syndrome is real.

in any case though, this seems to be a private conversation. its really sleazy to judge someone based on private convos especially amongst people who know each other well. its true that you can get an unfiltered look into someones character, but there is such thing as a front and back-stage concept in sociology. when you're chilling with friends or family you're more a back-stage person and this type of talk is quite common.

if my private conversations with my friends were aired out, it would be awful.
I should have been more clear. I am not talking physical or emotional abuse. A woman that wants to be used like a hot sports car for expensive items isn't being abused, she's getting what she wants.

Oh this certainly won't help him with female voters. I'm just saying this is the type of stuff that many men can be caught saying in private.
Hitting on a married woman when you're married? I hear racy stuff between the fellas from time to time but never something like that. It's amazing how many people give him a free pass on this stuff. In any case, this has legs and is getting just getting picked up by all the main stream media outlets that Trump and his minions hate so much.

This is the sort of foxhole conversations my grandpa had in the Hurtgen Forest back in 1944. He said when the took a break from saving the world from fascism, all they talked about was p***y and beer.

Grab them by the p****y? He's done. Toast. This puts the final nail in the coffin. This will not fly with a great many women who make up more than half of the voters.

And it will be brought up at the debate this weekend, to be sure. Hillary has already slammed him:

Game over people. Game over. Anyone who doesn't think this is devastating is in denial. You can tell the seriousness of it by the fact that Trump issued a statement that used the word "apologized" in less than an hour. Donald never uses that word. This is huuuuuuuuge.
