Donald Trump amplified his contentious history with microphones Thursday, blaming the technology for recording what he thought he was saying in private.
In an interview set to air Thursday, Trump faulted a hot mic for capturing him speaking cavalierly about forcibly kissing and groping women with impunity because he’s “a star.”
The leaked 2005 “Access Hollywood” video has badly damaged Trump’s campaign and set off a series of sexual assault allegations from a dozen or so women since he denied during the second presidential debate ever actually assaulting women, despite his aggressive rhetoric.
“The microphones, I mean to be honest should, you know, should never have been on,” he said, according to an excerpt of an interview scheduled to broadcast Thursday evening with the global Catholic network EWTN and published by The Washington Post.
