Washington Post: Trump recorded having extremely lewd conversation about women in 2005
Donald Trump bragged in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone, saying that “when you’re a star, they let you do it,” according to a video obtained by The Washington Post.
The video captures Trump talking with Billy Bush, then of “Access Hollywood,” on a bus with the show’s name written across the side. They were arriving on the set of “Days of Our Lives” to tape a segment about Trump’s cameo on the soap opera.
Late Friday night, following sharp criticism by Republican leaders, Trump issued a short video statement saying, “I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize.” But he also called the revelation “a distraction from the issues we are facing today.” He said that his “foolish” words are much different than the words and actions of Bill Clinton, whom he accused of abusing women, and Hillary Clinton, whom he accused of having “bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims.”

WNU Editor: I suspect that there are a lot more Trump comments/remarks that are even worse than what was disclosed today .... and we will probably be getting to hear them in the coming days and weeks. But as to the bigger question .... will this have an impact on how the voters vote .... I am not sure on the answer. I remember when Bill Clinton was going through his Lewinsky scandal that I said to myself he was finished .... but I was wrong and he was definitely not impacted by it politically. As for this year's election cycle .... quoting what I heard a pundit say tonight .... ‘Everybody Knows’ Hillary Has a Private and Public Position On Everything, and That Trump Is Crude .... I cannot help but feel that this pundit is probably correct. Sighhhh .... I have been watching U.S. Presidential elections since Carter-Reagan in 1980 ..... and I have never seen anything like this. It is truly a sad commentary on the state of the U.S. political system that even the Chinese are now mocking the Americans ... Chinese papers mock U.S. election, say scandals bury real issues (Reuters). At least the British tabloids are enjoying themselves ....
