Let me say one thing on this, and it's not a defense of Trump's politcal career at all.  

As big of a racist fucking clown Donald Sterling is/was, I had the same opinion regarding that situation when it went down.  You basically had a private conversation, that time actually within the confines of his own home, with no intent of those words ever leaving those walls.  That private conversation cost the man millions upon millions of dollars.  Hell, I've had a lot of private conversations in my own house that are nobody's business.

The Trump situation is a little different, but in many ways the same.  The conversation happened 11 years ago.  I'm not even sure what the context of the conversation was.  The clip that I saw showed a bus.  Was Trump on a bus with Billy Bush?  Did he know he was being recorded?

I know I've had a lot of lockerroom banter with buddies on the train or at a bar.  Some of those conversations happened a decade ago.  I don't know if I ever said I would grab a chick by her *****, but I've probably spoken about waitresses or other woman in ways that could perhaps be re-stated in more professional terms if I.....

a.) knew I was being recorded.b.) looked into a crystal ball and knew I would be running for office 11 years in the future.
Again, I can't stand the thought of seeing either of these idiots become President, so this is not an endorsement of Trump, but releasing private recordings from a decade ago without his consent is really lame.
