Donald Trump is at it again.
According to reports, Donald now claims . that the 2005 Access Hollywood tape of him bragging about kissing women without consent and being able to ‘grab them by the pussy’ is fake.
The news comes from a New York Times report by Jonathan Martin, Maggie Haberman and Alexander Burnsnov chronicling the friction between Trump and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about the Roy Moore scandal.
“Trump sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous ‘Access Hollywood’ tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after,” the Times report said. “He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently. (In the hours after it was revealed in October 2016, Mr. Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.)”
Trump not only acknowledged the voice on the tape was his, but he shrugged off boasting about groping women as mere “locker room talk.”
Judge Roy Moore and Trump also face multiple, unrelated sexual assault allegations from various women, which they have both denied. Moore’s allegations stem from several women claiming he had inappropriate sexual relationships with them while they were minors and his subsequent remarks in the aftermath of the allegations.
We really have to get Donald out of here.
