candidate, Donald Trump has officially apologized for crude and vulgar comments he made about women in a leaked 2005 conversation gone viral online and social media.
We reported it earlier today in leaked video conversation from 2005, obtained and released by The Washington Post, U.S presidential candidate, Donald Trump used extraordinarily vulgar and predatory language
as he describes hitting on a married woman and grabbing women’s crotches.
Trump who along with TV host, Billy Bush didn’t realize their mics were still hot, were overheard telling Bush and several others about a failed attempt to seduce a woman who has now been revealed as Nancy O’Dell, saying:
“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.”
Billy Bush then says, “Whatever you want.” Trump replies, “Grab them by the p—y, you can do anything.”
Donald Trump in an official statement late on Friday, apologized for crude comments he made about women in 2005.
“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. I apologize if anyone was offended.
“I said it, I was wrong and I apologize. I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I’m not. I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade old video are one of them.
“Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong and I apologize. This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we’re facing today.
“Bill Clinton has abused women, and Hillary Clinton has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days. See you at the debate on Sunday,” Trump said in his statement.
Billy Bush also released a statement saying: “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.”
