Donald Trump Says You're Letting ISIS Win By Making a Big Deal Out of the Pussy Video

Donald Trump addressed the video of him bragging about grabbing women by the pussy head-on during the second presidential debate Sunday night, dismissing it as locker room talk that, frankly, is letting the terrorists win.


Here is his actual answer:

“This was locker room talk. I’m not proud of it, I apologized to my family. I apologized to the American people. Certainly I’m not proud of it. But this is locker room talk,” Trump said, adding, “You know, when we have a world where you have ISIS chopping off heads and frankly drowning people in steel cages, where you have [sniff] wars and horrible, horrible sights all over, where you have so many bad things happening. This is like medieval times, we haven’t seen anything like this, the carnage over the world. And they look and they see, can you imagine the people that are frankly doing so well against us with ISIS. And they look at our country and they see what’s going on. Yes, I’m embarrassed by it, I hate it, but it’s locker room talk and it’s one of those things. I will knock the hell out of ISIS.”

Quick question—has Donald Trump ever been in a locker room in his life?

Has he no understanding of how offensive he is? “Locker room talk” is patently offensive. Full stop. I collect 19th Century etiquette books, and nearly every one of them condemns talking about women in “male spaces” as we call it today. It’s not “OK” and never has been. And apparently it’s time to reinforce that idea.
