‘When you’re a star, they let you do it’: Donald Trump’s vulgar conversation about women caught on hot mic in 2005


Donald Trump was recorded on a hot mic talking about trying to have sex with a married woman, saying “when you’re a star, they let you do it,” according to a 2005 video obtained by The Washington Post.

Trump was riding in an “Access Hollywood” bus with host Billy Bush, heading to the set of “Days of Our Lives” to talk about Trump’s cameo on the show.

Democratic strategist Brad Bannon joins Politics Tonight to discuss the video’s impact on the campaign and Sunday’s debate in St. Louis.



In a statement, Trump addressed the recording, saying:

This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.
