Donald Trump’s lewd 2005 talk with Billy Bush — in which he talked about getting away with groping women because he is “a star” — isn’t going to help his presidential campaign.
Just imagine if anyone had discovered it in the primaries, when Trump easily outmaneuvered ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush by calling him “low-energy.” It might have buried the Trump candidacy before Trump won the nomination.
CBS managing editor for politics Will Rahn took to Twitter Friday to imagine an awkward moment at the Bush compound:
In a conversation released Friday, Trump boasted about groping women, saying that “when you’re a star, they let you do anything.”
“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet,” Trump told Billy Bush, the “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush in a conversation that was caught on a hot mic.
“I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” he said. “Grab ‘em by the pussy.”
