On the Oct. 8 edition of “CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow,” conservative radio host Stacy Washington tries to defend Donald Trump’s recent vulgarity by comparing the 2005 incident to modern-day rap music.
Last Friday, The Washington Post released footage from 2005 that captured the real estate mogul describing lewd sexual acts with female fans. At the time, Trump was arriving on the “Access Hollywood” set to film a segment with a “Days of Our Lives” co-star.
In the clip, Trump says that he tried to persuade a married woman to have sex with him. But the woman refused his advances. While speaking with former “Access Hollywood” co-host Billy Bush, Trump reveals that female fans let him touch them.
“Grab them by the p—y,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”
After the vulgar recording from 2005 surfaced of Donald Trump describing sexual assault, the Trump campaign has been on damage control for the last three days.
“I didn’t say the comments were OK, I condemned them, I think they were horrible but they were 11 years ago.” Washington says. “Sounds a lot like hip-hop music from today … We are not going to be outraged by the hip-hop music and the comments people make directly to women.”
The conservative commentator adds that this country has fallen apart under President Barack Obama. She says she is willing to tolerate a potty mouth. However, Harlow points out that rappers are not running for president.
