Donald Trump often complains that political correctness doesn’t allow him to call women “girls” anymore, instead requiring him to use the term “women.”
In private, he just goes with “it.”
That’s the pronoun he chose in new audio from 2005, published Friday by The Washington Post. A hot mic recorded Trump after the businessman was shown images of the soap star he’d soon be appearing with on “Days of Our Lives.” Trump and Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood,” who was also on the bus, marvel at the beauty of the woman he’s about to meet.
“Yeah, those legs, all I can see are those legs,” Bush says.
“Oh, it looks good,” Trump says.
Trump has waved off the audio as “locker room banter.”
“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. I apologize if anyone was offended,” he said in a statement.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
