Floyd “Money” Mayweather says that President Trump’s infamous “grab ’em by the pussy” comments that surfaced during the 2016 election were how “a real man” talks.
“People don’t like the truth,” Mayweather, a convicted domestic abuser, said in an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, as first reported by Sports Illustrated. “He speak like a real man spoke.”
“So he talking locker-room talk. Locker-room talk. ‘I’m the man, you know what I’m saying? You know who I am. Yeah, I grabbed her by the pussy. And?'” Mayweather explained.
Trump apologized after The Washington Post last October reported his comments in a 2005 “Access Hollywood” conversation with Billy Bush. Trump characterized the remarks as “locker-room talk” between men.
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them,” Trump says in the recording. “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.”
He adds: “Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”
“I feel people shy away from realness,” Mayweather said when asked if Trump should have been held to a higher standard as a presidential candidate. “This man didn’t do nothing. Listen, if y’all didn’t want the man in the White House, y’all should have voted the other way,” he added.
Mayweather, who went back into retirement after his 10th round TKO victory over UFC fighter Conor McGregor, has a perfect 50-0 record in the boxing ring.
