In addition to the comments about O’Dell, Bush and Trump then began coarsely discussing the appearance of Days of Our Lives actress Arianne Zucker, whom the two men were en route to meet for a Trump guest appearance on the soap.
“I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs," Trump says, "just in case I start kissing her. You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait."
Trump continues, "And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."
O'Dell does not have a comment at this time. Zucker has declined to comment.
In a statement, Trump said, "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." He also added, "I apologize if anyone was offended."
In a statement to ET, Bush said, “Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago – I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.”
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton responded on Twitter on Friday. "This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president."
