In vulgar terms, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump bragged in 2005 about kissing, touching and trying to have sex with women. That conversation was caught on video, and was obtained andreleased Friday by the Washington Post.
“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,” Trump can be heard saying to Billy Bush, then of”Access Hollywood” and now a co-host on NBC’s “Today” show. “And when you’re a star, they let you do it.You can do anything…Grab them by the p—y. You can do anything.”
Response was swift, most meaningfully from Trump’s fellow party members. At least a dozen notable Republicans said they will no longer vote for him after the video was posted Friday. Others are calling on him to suspend his campaign.
Still, Trump has said he will “never” drop out of the race, and won’t let down his voters.
