CNN's John King shreds Trump surrogate Corey Lewandowski over his defense of Donald Trump describing what should be called sexual assault as "locker room talk." Erin Burnett also weighed in and discussed Trump and his unwanted advances on a friend of hers, which Lewandowski did his best to disparage.

Corey Lewandoski kept working hard for his boss, Donald Trump, by trying to minimize the damage by the bombshell "Grab That Pu**y" video by saying it was just harmless locker room talk.

CNN's John King was having none of it. He shut him down, spectacularly.

Lewandoski said that what he said was locker room talk, he apologized and wants to move on. Yeah, that isn't really what it was. It was bragging about sexually assaulting women.

John King jumped in "it's not locker room talk. I've been in a lot of locker rooms. That is not locker room talk. If that happens in a locker room, the adult in the room shoves that kid against the wall and says 'shut up.' I have a sister, I have a mother. You don't talk like that."

He goes on to say "Maybe it was just talk, but he didn't say he didn't do it. if he did this, it is a felony. People go to jail for this behavior"

Exactly. So, what will Trump go to jail for first? Fraud? Tax evasion? Sexual assault? The list keeps growing!
