Trump's Access Hollywood tape played on repeat outside White House

Trump's Access Hollywood tape played on repeat outside White House”

At noon today, UltraViolet plans to host a peaceful rally at Lafayette Square Park called the "Rally to Grab Back".

The group has set up a screen in Washington, D.C.in between the White House and the National Mall to play the infamous recording all day long.

The screening began at 9 a.m. local time on Friday morning, and is set to end at 9 p.m.

The demonstration comes on the one year anniversary of the release of the Access Hollywood video that showed Mr Trump boasting about kissing and groping women without their consent.

The 2005 tape of Trump talking to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush leaked almost a year ago amid the presidential campaign.

"When you're a star, they let you do it, you can do anything". "You can do anything".

The tape was made public October 7, 2016, and was followed by calls for Trump to drop out of the presidential race, including from some Republicans.

After the tape was released, Trump and his allies sought to brush off the real estate mogul's comments as "locker room talk", saying during a subsequent presidential debate that he was "not proud of it". "It was not so-called 'locker room talk, ' it was a man bragging about sexually assaulting women", Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet, said in part of a written statement. The "Rally to Grab Back" is marking the occasion by playing the tape continuously between the White House and Washington Monument, according to its Facebook page.

One year after hearing the shocking comments, women expressed their outrage about the "predator-in-chief" and criticized the country's "toxic" culture.

Part of the objective behind playing the tape is "reminding Americans that their President is a self-confessed serial sexual abuser", the group wrote in a press release. "Now, his administration is actively dismantling protections for sexual assault survivors, and he's still openly assaulting and harassing women".
