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 p***y 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."
