The Daily Show Asks, 'What Do Trump's Fans Think Of All This?'

'One man's sexual assault is just another man's flirting.'

While most of the men dismissed Trump's latest controversy as 'locker room talk', oddly enough no one would admit ever talking like this around their wives or daughters.

While notable Republican leaders have denounced Donald Trump in the aftermath of the candidate's leaked 2005 tape in which he bragged about sexual assault, less attention has been paid to the everyday Trump supporter. How do they feel about their candidate's most indicting controversy yet?

The Daily Show was up to the task. Correspondent Jordan Klepper went to a Trump rally in Pennsylvania to talk with prospective Trump voters. Their logic, however, wasn't exactly infallible.

"You know what, so what if he wants to grab pussy — I want to grab pussy," a male Trump supporter tells Klepper. "I wish I could grab as much pussy as he has."

Another male supporter took his cues from Trump's apology, using the oft-criticized "locker room talk" defense.

As to one guy's contention that half the women at the rally would have to have their pussy's snatched by Donald Trump, this lady in Cincinnati last night might be more indicative of his supporters than first thought.
