Donald Trump is issuing a rare apology after a video showed him making lewd, sexually charged comments about women in 2005. He called it “locker room banter.” The Republican nominee said that “I apologize if anyone was offended.” He issued the statement after The Washington Post revealed the video of Trump caught on a microphone talking to Billy Bush, host of the entertainment TV show Access Hollywood. Trump used graphic terms to describe the woman’s body and said he frequently tried to kiss beautiful women. He boasted that “when you’re a star they let you do it.” Trump has a long history of making crude comments about women. Hillary Clinton is responding to video. The Democratic presidential candidate said on Twitter, “This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.” Clinton has said that Trump has shown a lack of respect for women, noting during the first presidential debate that he insulted a former Miss Universe. She has said it’s a reason why he’s unfit to be president.
