Ashley Judd on Donald Trump 2005 tape: "This is who he is"
Ashley Judd is speaking out about Donald Trump in light of the leaked tape on which he makes crude, demeaning comments about women. The actress tweeted Friday that the content of the tape "is who he is," and that she's heard him speak that way about one of his own family member's spouses.
Responding to Trump's non-apology, which journalist Jake Tapper tweeted, Judd held little back. "I never heard him 'apologize' for talking to me and others about his family member's spouse, and especially her breasts," she wrote. "This is who he is."
Earlier, Judd tweeted and deleted a similar version of the same post, screengrabbed by Politico reporter Shane Goldmacher.
On the tape, Trump and Today Show star Billy Bush talk about how they believe their fame assists them in attempting to sleep with women. Trump brags that if he grabs a woman "by the pussy," he can get whatever he wants.
In response to political news site the Hill's summary of the story, which called the talk on the tape "extreme sexual comments," Judd balked.
"Let's be plain," she tweeted. "He says he 'grabs women by the pussy.'"
