Donald Trump Caught on Hot Mic in 2005 Talking About Women: "When You're a Star, They Let You Do It"

The presidential nominee released a statement about the lewd conversation, which included comments about 'Entertainment Tonight' correspondent Nancy O'Dell.

Donald Trump's latest campaign setback has arrived.

Late on Friday, hot microphone audio from 2005 was published revealing the Republican candidate speaking crassly about an unidentified woman — later identified to be former Access Hollywood cohost Nancy O'Dell — that he apparently was trying to be involved with.

“I moved on her, and I failed. I'll admit it,” said Trump in comments unearthed and reported by the Washington Post, which edited a videotape of the incident. "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," Trump continued, after saying he took the woman — who is identified only as "Nancy" in the tape — out furniture shopping.

The paper said Trump made the comments prior to appearing on the set of Days of Our Lives, where the real estate mogul made a cameo. And he was speaking with Billy Bush of Access Hollywood in some of the comments. Trump was newly married to Melania Trump at the time.

At one point in the conversation, Trump and Bush reportedly discuss Trump's Days of Our Lives co-star Arianne Zucker.

“I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump was heard saying. “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.” He then added, "And when you’re a star, they let you do it. Grab them by the p—y. You can do anything."

Earlier on Friday, Trump responded in 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."

Later that night, he released an additional video statement on his social media accounts apologizing for his past comments.

Hollywood was quick to react on Friday; see the social media posts below.
