First Lady Michelle Obama said Thursday that Republican nominee Donald Trump bragging on a 2005 tape about his fame allowing him to “do anything to women” shook her to the core.
Speaking at a campaign rally in New Hampshire for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Mrs. Obama called the comments “shocking and demeaning.” She also dismissed Trump’s claim that the remarks were simply “locker room talk,” saying they were affront to all women, parents and every citizen in United States.
“I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken to me to my core in a way that I couldn’t have predicted,” the first lady said. “So while I would love nothing more than pretend that this isn’t happening and come out here and do my normal campaign speech, it would be dishonest and disingenuous to just move onto the next thing like this was all a bad dream. This is not something we can ignore.”
Mrs. Obama said the comments made by Trump are part of a long history of demeaning women.
