After issuing multiple apologies over a recording of himself making vulgar comments about women, Donald Trump addressed the controversy in a tweet Saturday morning.
"Certainly has been an interesting 24 hours!" he tweeted.
After the recording surfaced Friday afternoon, Trump initially issued a statement dismissing his comments as "locker room banter."
In the 2005 clip, Trump was heard saying he could "grab" women "by the p---y" because "when you're a star they let you do it." He also discussed trying to sleep with a married woman and failing.
"This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago," Trump said in the statement. "Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended."
But the firestorm of criticism continued, and he issued a second apology early Saturday morning.
"Everyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am," he said in a pre-recorded video posted to his Facebook account.
"I've never said I'm a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone I'm not. I've said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more-than-a-decade-old video are one of them," he continued. "I said it. I was wrong. And I apologize."
Several prominent Republicans called for Trump to step out of the presidential race, and the condemnation of his comments from party officials and leaders was nearly universal.
(sarcasm)Oh Goddess forgive us our sins of misogyny. Forgive us as we are not as perfect as females are. May we learn our place at your feet.(/sarcasm) In the old days if you said anything offensive toward God you were called to task. It seems that women and their bloated egos and ideals of self importance have replaced God in the eyes of western men. As far as Kelly Ayotte is concerned fuck her. She is gynocentric garbage. So is her female Democratic counterpart. If you're a man I suggest Brian Chabot. I don't know too much about him but I do know that Ayotte is a loser. A loser we don't want.
