In a conversation from 2005, which was recently released by the Washington Post, Republican nominee Donald Trump has been caught in yet another misogynistic discussion.
The video of Trump shows him bragging on about kissing, groping, and trying to have sex with women. The conversation was caught on a hot microphone, and Trump clearly claims that women allow this sort of behavior:
“…When you’re a star, they let you do it.”
It is understood that the video was taken on an Access Hollywood bus. Trump was in the bus with Billy Bush from the show, both were on their way to the set of Days of Their Lives. Trump was set to appear on the soap opera and was to be interviewed by Bush about his cameo.
Other conversations between Trump and Bush include Trump’s failed attempts to seduce a woman. He said:
“I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it… I did try and f*** her. She was married.”
At the time of the recording, Trump had recently married his third wife, Melania. He continued describing the saga with:
“…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.'”
The Republican’s potential for President of the United States concluded his description of this scenario with:
“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there, and she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”
Around this time in the audio, Trump and Bush noticed actress Arianne Zucker, who is escorting them onto the set. This portion of their conversation is halted.
Trump also described the impact that beautiful women have on his ability to control himself,
“I’ve gotta use some tic tacs, just in case I start kissing her. 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. You can do anything!”
He finally says:
“Grab them by the pussy; you can do anything!”
Again, Trump was married to his current wife, Melania, at the time of this conversation. The date in question is believed to be September 16, 2005.
The Irony Of The Situation
Trump has frequently attempted to make a campaign issue out of Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s marriage to former-President Bill Clinton.
He claims that Hillary allows her husband’s infidelity to take place because she is an:
“…Enabler … Hillary Clinton was married to the single greatest abuser of women in the history of politics. Hillary was an enabler, and she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward. I think it’s a serious problem for them, and it’s something that I’m considering talking about more in the near future.”
Trump had a very public affair with Marla Maples, his eventual second wife, while still married to his first wife Ivana Trump.
Done For Entertainment
Trump has said that his repeated derogatory and sexist comments against women have all been done for entertainment:
“A lot of that was done for the purpose of entertainment. There’s nobody that has more respect for women than I do.”
The above statement was given to KSNV-TV, a Las Vegas television station.
Though the tape concerned in this article was obtained during a private moment, it is still in keeping with his approach to women.
A publicist for Zucker did not immediately respond for comment on this matter.
However, the BBC issued a “rare apology” from Trump.
