“Pence was not aware — as far as we know — of this story while inside the restaurant,” Hillyard wrote. 

The Washington Post published a video on Friday that featured audio of Trump making lewd comments about women, including discussing an attempt to have sex with an unnamed married woman. 

“I did try and f--k her. She was married,” Trump says in the published audio.

“I moved on her like a b---h, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married,” Trump says. “Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”
