WASHINGTON D.C., 7 de octubre.- En un vídeo del 2005 obtenido por el Washington Post, Donald Trump habla con el ex-anfitrión de Access Hollywood Billy Bush gráficamente sobre sus relaciones sexuales con las mujeres. Es tan polémico el vídeo que Bush ya suspendió su cuenta de Twitter. Este vídeo aparece oportunamente: el domingo se realizará el segundo debate entre el magnate republicano ("fascista americano", le puso Letras Libres) y Hillary Clinton.
Trump le cuenta una historia a Bush acerca de un intento fallido de tener relaciones sexuales con una mujer casada. El Post dijo que Trump se había casado con Melania como “varios meses” antes de la conversación con Bush.
En el vídeo, Trump dice sobre su intento con la mujer casada: "Me moví sobre ella como una perra, pero no pude llegar allí. Y ella estaba casada. Entonces, de repente, ella ahora tiene las tetas falsas. Ella ha cambiado totalmente su look".
El Post informa que Trump y el actor Bush también hablaron sobre la actriz Arianne Zucker en el vídeo.
Bush, ahora un anfitrión del Today Show, se oye diciéndole a Trump: “Tu chica está muy caliente. Sí! El Donald ha anotado! ...”
“Esto era una conversación privada que tuvo lugar hace muchos años. Bill Clinton ha dicho muchas más cosas peores en el campo de golf”, dijo Trump en un comunicado en el Post. “Me disculpo si alguien se sintió ofendido.”

Trump y Bush estaban en camino a una filmación de una telenovela, según el Post.
“Usted sabe, me siento atraído automáticamente por las mujeres hermosas... empiezo a besarlas. Es como un imán”, dice Trump mientras que Bush se oye riendo. “Sólo un beso. Ni siquiera espero. Y cuando eres una estrella ellas lo permiten. Puedes hacer cualquier cosa.”
“Lo que quieras”, responde Bush.
“Agarrarlas en el c—. Puedes hacer cualquier cosa”, dijo Trump. Bush sigue riendo.
El dúo también salió en el día de elección presidencial 2004. En ese vídeo Trump fue rechazado por tres diferentes lugares de votación debido a una confusión con el cambio de la dirección de su hijo. Trump votó con una papeleta provisional.
Bush fue anfitrión de la competencia de Miss Universo en los años 2003-2005 y de nuevo en 2009. La competencia fue comprada por Trump en 1996.
Trump ha estado recientemente bajo fuego por los comentarios que hizo sobre Alicia Machado, ex Miss Universo, que Trump llama “Miss Piggy”.
La nota de David A. Fahrenthold en el Washington Post
Donald Trump bragged in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone, saying that “when you’re a star, they let you do it,” according to a video obtained by The Washington Post.
The video captures Trump talking with Billy Bush, then of “Access Hollywood,” on a bus with the show’s name written across the side. They were arriving on the set of “Days of Our Lives” to tape a segment about Trump’s cameo on the soap opera.
The tape includes audio of Bush and Trump talking inside the bus, as well as audio and video once they emerge from it to begin shooting the segment.
In that audio, Trump discusses a failed attempt to seduce a woman, whose full name is not given in the video.
“I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it,” Trump is heard saying. It was unclear when the events he was describing took place. The tape was recorded several months after he married his third wife, Melania.
“Whoa,” another voice said.
“I did try and f--- her. She was married,” Trump says.
Trump continues: “And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.’”
“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married,” Trump says. “Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”
At that point in the audio, Trump and Bush appear to notice Arianne Zucker, the actress who is waiting to escort them into the soap-opera set.
“Your girl’s hot as s---, in the purple,” says Bush, who’s now a co-host of NBC’s “Today” show.
“Whoa!” Trump says. “Whoa!”
“I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump says. “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.”
“And when you’re a star, they let you do it,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want,” says another voice, apparently Bush’s.
“Grab them by the p---y,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”
A spokeswoman for NBC Universal, which produces and distributes “Access Hollywood,” declined to comment.
“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,” Trump said in a statement. “I apologize if anyone was offended.”
Billy Bush, in a statement released by NBC Universal, said: “Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago — I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.”
After the video appeared online Friday afternoon, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton wrote on Twitter: “This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.” Her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.), told reporters, “It makes me sick to my stomach,” while campaigning in Las Vegas.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund, which has endorsed Clinton, issued a statement from Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens saying: “What Trump described in these tapes amounts to sexual assault.”
Trump was also criticized by members of his own party, including Sen. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), who is running for reelection, and has said she will vote for Trump. “His comments are totally inappropriate and offensive,” Ayotte said in a written statement.
“No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever.,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement.
One of Trump’s most prominent social-conservative supporters, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, told BuzzFeed’s Rosie Gray: “My personal support for Donald Trump has never been based upon shared values.”
Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, was at a diner in Toledo when the news broke — about to view the diner’s collection of signed cardboard hot-dog buns, which includes one signed by Trump. But the reporters traveling with Pence were quickly ushered out of the diner by campaign staff, before they could ask Trump’s running mate about it, according to Politico. Politico reported that the journalists, traveling in Pence’s “protective pool,” were not permitted to film Pence as he left the diner.
The tape appears at a time when Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has sought to make a campaign issue out of his opponent’s marriage. Trump has criticized former president Bill Clinton for his past infidelity and criticized opponent Hillary Clinton as her husband’s “enabler.”
“Hillary Clinton was married to the single greatest abuser of women in the history of politics,” Trump told the New York Times in a recent interview. “Hillary was an enabler, and she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward. I think it’s a serious problem for them, and it’s something that I’m considering talking about more in the near future.”
Trump carried on a very public affair with Marla Maples — his eventual second wife — while still married to first wife Ivana Trump.
Trump has been criticized in this campaign for derogatory and lewd comments about women, including some made on TV and live radio. In an interview Wednesday with KSNV, a Las Vegas television station, Trump said that those comments were made for entertainment.
“A lot of that was done for the purpose of entertainment. There’s nobody that has more respect for women than I do,” he told the station.
“Are you trying to tone it down now?” asked the interviewer, Jim Snyder.
“It’s not a question of trying, it’s very easy,” said Trump.
The tape obtained by The Post seems to have captured Trump in a private moment, with no audience beyond Bush and a few others on the bus. It appears to have been shot around Sept. 16, 2005, which was the day media reports said Trump would tape his soap-opera cameo.
The video shows the bus carrying Trump and Bush turning down a street on the studio back lot. The two men cannot be seen.
“Oh, nice legs, huh?” Trump says.
“Oof, get out of the way, honey,” Bush says, apparently referencing somebody else blocking the view of Zucker.
The two men then exit the bus and greet Zucker.
“We’re ready, let’s go,” Trump says, after the initial greetings. “Make me a soap star.”
“How about a little hug for the Donald?” Bush says. “He just got off the bus.”
“Would you like a little hug, darling?” Zucker says.
“Absolutely,” Trump says. As they embrace, and air-kiss, Trump says, “Melania said this was okay.”
The video then follows Trump, Bush and Zucker into the studio. Trump did appear on “Days of Our Lives” in late October. In a tape of that cameo posted online, Zucker’s character asks Trump — playing himself — for a job at his business, and tells him suggestively, “I think you’ll find I’m a very willing employee. Working under you, I think, could be mutually beneficial.”
Trump’s character gives her the brushoff.
“That’s an interesting proposition,” Trump says on-screen. “I’ll get back to you.”
A publicist for Zucker did not immediately respond to questions on Friday afternoon. (AhoraMismo / Washington Post)
