He said, "And they let me."


www.youtube.com...

1:20 it starts.

"And when you are a star they let you do it, you can do anything. Grab them by the p****, you can do anything"

The guy is definitely a sleaze, but we don't need to make up stuff to make him look bad.


Me, you...really splitting hairs.

I would imagine there is some pretty raunchy talk that goes on in locker rooms. (high school locker rooms) and I'm embarrassed, being female, about it, but I don't have to hear it so, there's that. I won't think about it.

But I bet those paid athletes don't talk that way when they are in an RV with television people interviewing them, while they are wearing a live mic.

Anyway I'm sick of it. Best I can tell CNN is keeping it going, and ATS members are keeping it going. Maybe before too long, one of those will get bored with it and let it go.

Locker room banter happens, all the #ing time. It also happens in construction zones. It's just the way people are wired. Women get a free pass because they are not as open as men are when it comes to banter like this. But, I have heard plenty of women banter and damn it really puts some of the # men say to shame. Women may not do it as often but when they do....look out.

I am a conservative male and growing up part of my life with a single mother who was abused by my father gave me a different respect towards women. That being said, I have said "damn that girl is sexy or damn I would hit that" to my dudes. When it comes to talking negatively in a vulgar way then you won't see me participate in those kind of things. Not saying I haven't but I try hard to avoid.

This whole episode underscores just how daft people can be - it's not about his coarse language or boys bragging - it's about his statements regarding being a rich star and what he has done (and might do) with his power. It shows his base character is opportunistic, entitled and unethical and offers a glimpse into how he will actually wield power as POTUS.

Mind you, Clinton is no different, that's what makes this all such a farce and people are just lapping up what the media is feeding you. It's utterly stupid and this country will get what it deserves in either candidate.

People do not talk like that. In the locker room or out. The p***y comment aand the 'going after her like a b*tch', people just do not say.

It is not locker room banter and male athletes have been on the news this week asking to please stop saing that.

The bus tape is everyone's business as he knew he was miced for Entertainment Tonight. He then says it was 'locker room talk', so then, people ask 'is this locker room talk?' Go figure. LOL.




Of course they will. Everyone is going to jump on a podium to get that attention. What are "atheletes" if not the center of attention. You ever watch that show "Ballers"? Yeah... You watch that and tell me what you think.

Oh yeah... it's rated R! So keep your kids out of the room.


Who says they knew that mic was on? It's possible they were setup with the mic and didn't realized it was on yet. Why in hell would they say those things on open mic?

It wasn't locker talk, he wasn't at the gym. He was on a tour bus, in a suit on his way to a function.

There is a difference between normal locker room banter and the disrespectful sexual assaults that Trump spoke of.

There is a big disconnect or over-looking of this difference.

I guess no one has ever heard a rap gangsta tune.







Does that make Rappers 'Trailer Trash'...or 'Hillbillies'?

Nope! I watched it one time, and at the end when they showed the number to call, I called it and said that I am part of a troupe of actors (which is true) who could do a much better job with stage fighting, name-calling, and acting than the trash they had on there.

I was told by the dimwit receptionist that they don't hire actors. Don't believe me? Call them yourself!
See, I make an effort to get a real picture of things as an observer, so I know what I'm talking about when I evaluate the behaviors of others. I'm confident about what I say, because I've heard both sides.

You should try it! Try listening to NPR, or watching documentaries made by real intellectuals --- then you'd have at least some idea of what you're up against when you bring your gutter mentality to the table and expect to be treated with respect.

Learn big words. Read the dictionary, even! It helps a lot! Would you like me to drill you on big words and their meanings? How are you at spelling bees? Do you know what verisimilitude is?

Thank you! Go Hawkeyes! (I have family up there....). Yes - manners. Common courtesy.

I am not offended by "damn she's sexy" or "I'd hit that" -- and I have said similar things about men I find attractive.
But the crude language? No. It's off-putting, and embarrassing. I blush even hearing it.

They can call us prudes or 'sheltered' if they want. We should expect it, really. It's nice to have them exposing themselves as the riff-raff for us....so we know who NOT to listen to.

No, it sounds like a show I don't want to watch. Odd statement, kids, I have one child who is over 18. Would be strange to tell her she must elave the room.

No, they just said it was giving locker rooms a bad name and to please stop as the don't say things like that.

He got fitted for a mic. He either knew or is really stupid.

It's a massive difference! Context is important.

But, I'll ask the same question again which clarifies this whole thing..

Would Melania be married to Trump if he was poor and not famous?

If your answer is no, you agree with Trump.

But trumps defense is not exaggeration, I explained this in my OP.

He probably really did (does) those things


You're going off of probably, which means you 100% don't know if he really did. You're only going off of your opinion of the guy. So your earlier statement "I kinda like the guy buy wouldn't vote for him" was originally false.

I am not 100% certain. She was a model, 1 time porn actress, but not the world's greatest beauty. But neither answer would mean I agree with Trump, about anything.

"Gutter mentality?"
I had no idea you were so judgmental and myopic.

I'll have to get back to you on 'verisimilitude'...My dictionary is holding up one of the corners of my trailer home.

The naivete of people is hilarious. People say all kinds of things in private. A lot of it is lewd.

Any guy claiming they haven't said or heard this type of talk is either a liar or just a wussy beta male. It is just bragging.

Let's keep it real, one of the benefits of being rich and famous is the unlimited pootang groupies throw around. Face it, this is why guys want to be athletes, rock stars, etc. This is why we drive nice cars. Work out. To attract women. I'd imagine someone like Trump is used to having his pick of the litter so to speak. He just verbalized it. These groupies want you to smack 'em on the ass. Be aggressive. This is all he was saying.
