Trump: "I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."
Billy Bush: "Whatever you want."
Trump: "Grab 'em by the p***y. You can do anything."
Of course "grab 'em by the p***y" was the quote that took off from that exchange. It's an absurd thing to say. That's not even how sex works, man. Are you saying you just wander in, hook a few fingers in the ol' cooch, and then ... what? Swing them around? Make their heads flap about like a Muppet?

"Then you put your dingus on their butt and you both hop up and down. That's sex. That's what sex is."
But we let Pussy Wranglin' overshadow one part we really should have paid closer attention to. Trump's thesis statement. His warning of things to come. It was so nice, he said it twice:
"When you're a star... you can do anything. You can do anything."
If you didn't listen to the audio, Trump didn't accompany that last bit with a motivational fist-pump. It wasn't preceded by "believe in yourself," nor followed by a sparkly star and a rainbow. That was a psychopathic declaration of power. He was literally saying "they can't stop me."
