On the eve of the second presidential debate, the Trump campaign had to do some damage control when a video from 2005 was leaked, in which Trump was seen making sexist remarks. When Hillary Clinton brought it up during the October 9th debate, Trump said it was “locker room talk.” Read on to know about the video.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have sought to expose the skeletons in each other’s closets, like tax evasion and affairs. Recently, the Clinton campaign uncovered a video of Trump speaking to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, in which he made extremely sexist remarks and talked about groping women. Here’s the video that has since gone viral:

The video was brought up during the debate and moderator, Anderson Cooper grilled the Republican candidate on it. In response to probing on the video, Trump said, “it’s just locker room talk,” a statement that has since sparked another row.

What is in the Video?

In the video of the interview with Access Hollywood, Trump is talking to host Billy Bush on a bus. The lewd conversation was caught in a “hot mic” moment, when Trump was unaware his microphone was turned on. He talked about kissing, groping, and trying to have sex with women, and how he’s allowed to do it because of his celebrity status. He also spoke about trying to make a move on a married woman. The video brought harsh reactions against Trump; even people from his party have condemned his actions. Billy Bush, who was interviewing Trump at the time, is a member of the Bush family. You know, George W. Bush and Jeb Bush?

When Did He Say “Locker Room Talk?”

During the second presidential debate, Donald Trump was questioned by moderator, Anderson Cooper about sexually assaulting women without consent, as he said in the hot mic video. The GOP nominee dismissed it as “locker room talk” and then diverted to the subject of Bill Clinton and ISIS. Trump then went on to apologize to his family and the people of America. But what many noticed is that he did not apologize to women.

Trump insisted that his remarks about women from 11 years ago are insignificant, especially when there are more important issues like ISIS.

When Martha Raddatz asked Trump if he’s the same man today as he was in that 2005 video clip, Trump again repeated that it was locker room talk and contrasted his words with Bill Clinton’s actions.

Hillary Clinton didn’t let the opportunity slide. She used the incident to tell everyone that the video depicts exactly what Trump thinks about women.

Reactions to “Locker Room Talk”

Naturally, people took to Twitter to condemn Trump’s statement. Many condemned his “locker room talk” statement as a way to justify sexism and crimes against women.

Not just women and feminists, but also athletes are voicing their opposition to Trump’s choice of words. Many are saying that such conversations don’t happen in locker rooms and it’s just another one of Trump’s sexist remarks.

NBA player, C.J. McCollum (who plays for the Portland Trail Blazers) disproved Trump’s statement in a single tweet. That tweet was complementary to Los Angeles Clippers player, Jamal Crawford’s two-word exclamation condemning Trump’s locker room statement.

In a couple of tweets, Atlanta Falcons’ tight-end, Jacob Tamme asked Trump not to say “locker room talk,” and said it’s not normal to talk that way. Brett Anderson (Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher), Chris Conley (Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver), and retired NFL player, Donte Stallworth similarly condemned Trump. Conley’s tweet best summed up real locker room talk.
