CNN's The Lead With Jake Tapper played the newly released sex audio tape of Donald Trump making disgusting sexual remarks about what he can do to a women since he's a star and host Jake Tapper said, "What is that?"

The Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol didn't buy Trump's defense that he was just making locker room talk. "It's adolescent, but locker rooms are usually full of 20 years old and they do snap towels and say these kind of things," he said. "Donald Trump is what at this time 59, 60 years old, just married for the third time. It's a window into his character."

Since Trump used Bill Clinton's name as away to try and deflect from his lewdness, Kirsten Powers followed up by saying that he wasn't running for election. "Donald Trump is on his third marriage, he's openly speaking about cheating here - and you do have to ask, why the double standard?"

Jake Tapper was completely flummoxed by the audio because it was hard to discuss the contents on air, marveling, "But he's describing behavior when you're a star you can do anything. You can grab a woman by the p-word?"

He continued, "You know, look. I was single once. I was no choir boy. I never said anything like that. I never thought anything like that. I mean, what is that?"

Powers observed, " I know - who talks this way? I mean, I'm sorry even when you're single it's a strange thing to say -- this would make the whole U.S. a hostile work environment."

Yes, who talks like that? Well, there are plenty of sex deviates who talk like that.

I was fortunate to play with many famous rock musicians in my time and when you're touring it can get pretty wild, but I never heard anyone, ever talk about grabbing a girl's "p***y" because they were famous.

That's just sick and it's also a sex crime!
