Donald Trump really wants America to believe he sincerely cares about women, but he probably couldn't make a worse case for himself if he tried. Like, for example, today he was caught on live mic bragging about what he could get away with when hitting on a women, because, "when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything."

The conversation in this footage obtained by the Washington Post reportedly took place in 2005, when Access Hollywood was doing a segment about Trump appearing on Days of our Lives. The host, Billy Bush (who is now a co-host at NBC's Today show), and Trump were already wearing mics, which recorded them casually chatting while riding in an Access Hollywood bus to the soap opera set.

There's also a segment where Trump talks about hitting on an anonymous married woman, saying:

I did try and f--- her. She was married. . . I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.

In response, Donald Trump released a statement 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."

Rough locker room. Sure sounds like the casual conversation of a man respectful of women, right? And wow, an actual apology from Trump. There's a first time for everything.
