White House: Trump 'Hasn't Changed' Position On 'Access Hollywood' Tape

Posted November 28, 2017

Remember that famous Hollywood Access audiotape with Trump on the bus with Billy Bush where he talks about how he can just grab a woman by the pussy and get away with it because he's a celebrity? Moore's allegations stem from several women claiming he had inappropriate sexual relationships with them while they were minors and his subsequent remarks in the aftermath of the allegations.

The New York Times reports that's part of the reasoning behind his staunch support of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of pursuing and molesting underage girls four decades ago, despite Moore's near-universal disavowal by Senate Republicans.

Oh, the headlines to be had with new report President Donald Trump has been telling people that Access Hollywood tape, revealed during the presidential campaign. The president had allegedly told a Senator and an adviser that he believed that the "Access Hollywood" tape of him bragging about groping and kissing women was not authentic.

When the tape was made public by the Washington Post in October 2016, Trump acknowledged he was speaking in the video and apologized for his comments, in which he said: "You know, I'm automatically attracted to lovely - I just start kissing them. I said it, I was wrong and I apologize", Trump said in a video statement he released on his social media accounts that evening. You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them.

In a pair of tweets, he said "the last thing we need" in Alabama and the Senate is a "puppet" of the Democratic congressional leadership.

Florida close to hiring coach from another SEC school
Yahoo Sports reported Sunday that Florida is pursuing Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen as its next football coach. Mullen spent nine seasons in Starkville, going 69-46 with seven winning seasons and a pair of Top-25 finishes.

The real concern, as Cuomo sees it, is not necessarily with how this particular case will play out with the public - as Trump's Fake News claims on this tape are laughable - but in circumstances where the truth is far less obvious.

Whether or not Trump truly believes Moore's innocence is up for debate, although the times say that the President has, in private, characterized his endorsement as a "cold political calculus".

After the tape came out, Trump admitted the voice was his and apologized for his comments, dismissing them as "locker room banter".

The two men could be heard having an aggressively sexual conversation about women, with Mr Trump apparently boasting that he felt free to commit sexual assault because "when you're a star, they let you do it".
