Obama says Trump’s comments on women disqualifying

President Barack Obama on Wednesday said that Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump’s comments on a 2005 videotape about groping women would disqualify him a job even at a convenience store.

Obama, on behalf of the Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, said the choice was clear in the Nov. 8 election even before the tape was leaked last week showing Trump speaking crudely about women.

“Now you find a situation in which the guy says stuff that nobody would find tolerable if they were applying for a job at 7-Eleven,” Obama told the crowd, referring to the convenience store chain.

Trump said during Sunday night’s presidential debate he was embarrassed by the video, but dismissed it as “locker room talk.”

Obama also criticised some Republicans who have condemned the remarks but are still backing the New York businessman.

Obama said that it doesn’t make sense to him if the people would still endorse Trump as the president.

The White House spokesperson Josh Earnest said the remarks in the recording of Trumps conversation amounted to sexual assault.

Obama also took aim at Trump’s business credentials and referred to a New York Times report that showed he claimed about a billion dollar loss in one year on his taxes in the 1990s.
