“Donald Trump’s comments in 2005 – 11 years ago were made when he was a Democrat,” Hutchison said, according to a report by KING5 in Washington. “The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton to say Trump does not belong in the White House when her husband defined this behavior.”

Trump made a series of lewd remarks in the 2005 audio, including that women would let him "do anything" because he's famous. 
 
"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.

"Grab them by the p----,” Trump adds. "You can do anything."

Trump's Virginia campaign chair, Corey Stewart, also defended the Republican nominee on Friday, stating that women are "not concerned about whether he acted like a frat boy, as a lot of guys do.”

Those Republicans appear to be in the minority, however.
 
Many other Republican office-holders have blasted Trump over the comments.
