“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful – I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it … Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
This weekend, a leaked recording whipped the Trump campaign into a frenzy and got the entire world talking.
In a 2005 interview with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, Donald Trump was captured referring to women as though they were magnetic objects with no other choice but be drawn towards him.
Tonight, The Project co-host Waleed Aly used this 11-year-old recording to illustrate how the Republican candidate truly perceives women — and why his possible Presidency is no laughing matter.
"The tape allowed us to hear what Donald Trump sounds like when he's literally behind closed doors," Waleed began the segment, which he co-wrote with The Project’s Managing Editor Tom Whitty.
"That's sexual assault. And this is the moment. This is the moment that everything we've suspected about Donald Trump was confirmed. The predatory nature. The privilege. The sexism. The double standard. The sinister motivation."
As Aly highlighted, this is not the first time Trump has come under fire.
