Headline of the day: Just call him a grope addict


From the New York Times:

Trump Bragged About Groping Women: ‘They Let You Do It’

  • Donald J. Trump was caught on tape bragging in vulgar terms about making sexual advances toward a married woman, and aggressively kissing and groping others.
  • House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said he was “sickened” by the comments and disinvited Mr. Trump from a joint event on Saturday.

Trump was captured by a live mic in conversation with then-Access Hollywood and current Today co-host Billy Bush, cousin of Dubya and nephew of George H.W. Bush during preparations for a Trump guest appearance on Days of Our Lives.

Here’s the unredacted tape via The Daily Conversation:

Donald Trump Caught On Tape: I Grab Women “By The Pu**y”

Program notes:

A “hot mic” catches Donald J. Trump bragging in vulgar terms about making sexual advances toward a married woman, aggressively kissing and groping other women, and boasting that “when you’re a star they let you do it.”

The remarkable recording, obtained by The Washington Post, was made in 2005. Trump, the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, was captured on an open microphone that he apparently did not know was recording his conversation with Billy Bush, then the host of “Access Hollywood,” with whom he was sitting on a bus.

And, just for the record, that’s sexual battery he’s bragging about.

At least it would be in California, according to Sex. 243.4 (e) (1) of the California Penal Code:

Any person who touches an intimate part of another person,
if the touching is against the will of the person touched, and is
for the specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, or
sexual abuse, is guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery. . .
