With chants of “P---y fights back” and “Un-endorse Donald Trump,” more than 60 protesters, nearly all women, gathered outside the Republican presidential candidate’s Fifth Avenue building Wednesday in hopes of bringing his White House run to a close.
“It seems like this has reached a tipping point where people are finally saying this is not OK, and we just want to be here to topple this campaign,” Nadya Stevens, one of the organizers, told the New York Post.
The protest came less than a week after a 2005 video surfaced of Trump using vulgar language to brag to Billy Bush, then-host of NBC’s “Access Hollywood,” about groping women and trying to have sex with a married woman.
“I just start kissing them,” Trump is heard saying in the footage of beautiful women he’s attracted to, adding that “when you’re a star they let you do it” and he would “grab them by the p---y.”
“It’s not about lewd language, it’s about sexual assault,” Stevens said of Wednesday’s demonstration. “We wanted to encourage all women to speak up and defend themselves.”
