Trump brags about groping women in newly released video

The Trump campaign has released an apology

The above video and the report below contains a sexually graphic conversation between Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and an entertainment reporter.

The previously unaired footage from 2005 was recently obtained by the Washington Post.

During the lewd conversation, Trump is heard bragging about trying to have sex with a married woman and being able to grope women at will.

(CNN) – A new video sending shockwaves through the presidential campaign Friday night.

Taping an interview in 2005 with the tv show Access Hollywood, Donald Trump speaking in vulgar terms about his pursuit of women. “Grab them by the p—y…You can do anything.”

In the clip, obtained by the Washington Post, Trump tells host Billy Bush that he is not always successful in those efforts. “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.”

Trump and Bush then seem to see Arianne Zucker, the soap opera actress who greets them getting off the bus.

“Your girl’s hot as s—, in the purple,”

“Whoa! Whoa!”

“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. Grab ’em by the p****. You can do anything.”

The Trump campaign released a statement from the candidate moments after the Post published the video, offering an apology of sorts:

“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago…” Trump says in the statement. “Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”

Billy Bush has apologized for what he said in the 2005 video.

In a statement released by NBC, Bush says, “Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago – I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.”
