Athletes to Trump: That's not how our locker room talks

Athletes to Trump: That's not how our locker room talks

"What is locker room talk to me?"

"We talk about that from time to time, especially on days like (Monday) when the debate was (Sunday) night or leading up to the debate", Spencer said.

"I wonder if it could lead to people being more sympathetic in general", she said. Donald Trump's bragging teaches young men that they can get away with it-and your silence means you stood by and watched.

Count LeBron James among those that don't agree with Trump's assessment of what locker room talk is.

You can talk about the fact that you sleep with lots of people, whether they be men or women frankly.

Trump later apologized, dismissing his comments in the tape as simple "locker room talk".

Looking at a poll that showed the female vote in support of him waning, Trump said: 'I'm not sure I believe it'.

Tesla pulls Model X 60D listings after just three months
Users will now have to settle for the 75D as the next best choice, costing an additional $11,500 over the price of the 60D. While the Model X wasn't precisely a budget automobile to begin with, that certainly raises the price of entry.

But the release of the tape that's become a national story and part of the presidential race has "thrown me in the middle of the political arena of which I didn't ask to be a part", O'Dell said.

"We don't disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room", the four-time NBA MVP told reporters.

In Houston, Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney said his teammates don't speak as Trump described. You could imagine that it even elevates it, given the place of honor professional athletes hold in our culture and the sense of achievement associated with belonging to a private club.

Trump apologized for the comments in the video and tried to downplay them in a debate this week as words only. "If it's continuously happening, they don't need to be in that locker room". Lower the bar for what you can talk about, and you lower the bar for what is acceptable behavior.

Trump isn't the only one facing scrutiny for failing to acknowledge sexual assault.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who publicly displayed a "Make America Great Again" hat in his locker was asked his opinion of Trump's comments. Speaking as a mother, she said, children and especially young girls "need to know that their hard work, their achievements, their intelligence, their heart are most important". Or we might have a woman in our life who we could imagine being talked about this way.
