Politicians and Celebrities React To Donald Trump and Billy Bush’s Objectifying Video

The internet is currently in a frenzy following a video posted by The Washington Post featuring Donald Trump and television personality Billy Bush in a deplorable and objectifying conversation involving women.

The clip shows then-“Access Hollywood” co-host conversing with Trump on the set of the daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives.” Trump tells Bush of a failed attempt at seducing Nancy O’Dell, Bush’s co-host at the time, saying, “I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f**k her. She was married.”

The Republican presidential candidate goes on to say, “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”

Trump then states, “Grab them by the p***y, you can do anything.”

Needless to say, the Twitter-verse is livid.
