'Access Hollywood' Shoots Down Trump: 'The Tape Is Very Real'

'Access Hollywood' Shoots Down Trump: 'The Tape Is Very Real'

As a recent New York Times report revealed, Trump has recently begun changing his story about even the most incontrovertible evidence, suggesting to a senator earlier this year that the Access Hollywood tape on which he was recorded bragging about sexually assaulting women is "not authentic", and more recently telling an adviser the same. Let us make this perfectly clear - the tape is very real. "I've said some things that I regret", he said, "and the words released today on this more-than-a-decade-old video are one of them".

The suggestion is mentioned in a report published Saturday by The New York Times that focuses mainly on Trump's support of embattled Senate candidate Roy S. Moore.

The soap opera actress who appeared in the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape said it's ridiculous that President Trump is now questioning the authenticity of its contents. In one of the most WTF moments of the year, he's reportedly contradicted himself.

Trump has noted that Moore denies the allegations, though Moore has admitted that he dated women who were younger than he was when he was in his 30s, and said that he often asked their mothers for permission.

It's nice to do something like that and compete and have a couple little denominations [a bet] we're playing for. I am stiffer, I'm fused. "I haven't really competed in nearly two years, really", Woods said .

When asked about the issue during a November 27 press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed the question without fully clarifying whether Trump believes the tape was inauthentic, Time reports. I apologize to my family.

Then, two days later on October 9, he faced live questioning about the tapes during the second presidential debate. When CNN's Anderson Cooper pressed Trump on whether he "understood" that what he said was an admission of sexual assault, Trump pushed back, dismissing his comments as "locker room talk".

"I'm not proud of it", Trump said. Trump said that he tried to sleep with Bush's co-host Nancy O'Dell while she was married and said of women he finds attractive, "I just start kissing them..." Trump issued a public apology for it at the time, describing the banter as "locker room talk". I'm not proud of it. "I think he believes this will work with people", Cuomo marveled. "If anything the president questions, it's the media's reporting on that accuracy". And I was embarrassed by it.
