Donald Trump’s claim that the statements he made to Billy Bush in 2005 about groping women were “locker room talk” is meeting serious push back from several pro athletes.

“I haven’t heard that one in any locker rooms,” Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum tweeted. Likewise for Oakland A’s Pitcher Sean Doolittle, who wrote, “As an athlete, I’ve been in locker rooms my entire adult life and uh, that’s not locker room talk.”

On Friday, a tape surfaced of Trump talking with Bush, in which Trump said, “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ‘em by the pu–y.”
