The video clip as seen below, titled “It’s Not OK”, was produced by pro-Clinton group Humanity for Hillary. These are mix of footage from the leaked 2005 audio tape in which Trump talks about touching and kissing women with first person accounts of sexual assault. It also showed some of the clips of Trump dismissing his comments as “locker room talk” and claiming all the subsequent allegations of assault against him are false, then weighed with recollections from women about times they’ve been sexually assaulted.
Also lined up saying that “it’s not OK” to Trump are actresses Whoopi Goldberg, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lena Dunham, including actress Amber Tamblyn, who earlier this month, publicly revealed her own experience of assault.

Especially when you’re a man in a position of power and you talk that way publicly … you are telling the world that it’s OK to behave that way.”[/perfectpullquote]
Monday, Donald Trump’s wife Melania, appeared on CNN to defend her husband. She told Anderson Cooper that Trump was “egged on” into “boy talk” during the 2005 incident. She iterated that the multiple accuations of assault against Trump are “lies.”
