“I have reached the decision that I can no longer endorse Donald Trump,” Crapo said in a statement.
 
“This is not a decision that I have reached lightly, but his pattern of behavior has left me no choice.”
 
Crapo called Trump’s repeated actions and comments toward women “disrespectful, profane and demeaning.”

Trump's lewd comments spiraled into a scandal on Friday afternoon after The Washington Post published video caught on a hot microphone before an appearance on "Access Hollywood."
 
The GOP nominee talked about unsuccessfully trying to bed a married woman and said that as a celebrity, women let him "do anything."
 
"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," he said in the audio.
 
"Grab them by the p----."
