Welp, it's been a hell of a day for Donald Trump (and that's really saying something) - after all of the outrageous statements and gaffes, he finally may have done something that's too much for the GOP. The Washington Post obtained a tape of a conversation between Mr. Trump and Billy Bush of Access Hollywood recorded in 2005, where the following (insane AND insanely gross) conversation took place:

  1. Trump

    No, no, Nancy. No, this was [unintelligible] -- and I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, "I'll show you where they have some nice furniture." I took her out furniture -- I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn't get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she's now got the big phony tits and everything. She's totally changed her look.

  2. Bush

    Sheesh, your girl's hot as shit. In the purple.

  3. Trump

    Whoa! Whoa!

  4. Bush

    Yes! The Donald has scored. Whoa, my man!

  5. [Crosstalk]
  6. Trump

    Look at you, you are a pussy.

  7. [Crosstalk]
  8. Trump

    All right, you and I will walk out.

  9. [Silence]
  10. Trump

    Maybe it's a different one.

  11. Bush

    It better not be the publicist. No, it's, it's her, it's --

  12. Trump

    Yeah, that's her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful -- 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.

  13. Bush

    Whatever you want.

  14. Trump

    Grab 'em by the pussy. You can do anything.

  15. Bush

    Uh, yeah, those legs, all I can see is the legs.

"Grab 'em by the pussy" being one of the key takeaways - Trump describing in detail about how he gropes women and is allowed to get away with it has taken many as being beyond the pale (and Billy Bush's eager condoning his behavior also has met some controversy - but then again Billy Bush isn't running for president). And now key members of the GOP are rescinding their endorsements of Trump or doing whatever they can to distance themselves from what they now view as a toxic person.

For his part, Trump has issued an apology and made it clear that he will NOT be dropping out of the race and did his best to dismiss the lewd conversation as typical "locker room talk." But none of this has stopped people from reacting VERY strongly online about the revelations of the past 24 hours.

10. Even the official Tic-Tac account isn't willing to remain silent and be tied to Trump:

But maybe the most incredible part of this is how absolutely ridiculous the news has had to get in order to keep up with Trump. Seriously - Ana Navarro deserves some applause.
