In the tape, Trump can be heard bragging about being able to do anything to a woman thanks to his star power, including groping them in the “p---y.”

“Every single Republican is going to have to answer the question, 'What did you do the day you saw the tape of this man boasting about grabbing a women’s p---y,'” Ana Navarro, a GOP strategist, told a CNN panel.

Prominent Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes asked Navarro not to use the pejorative word.

“My daughter is listening,” Hughes said.

"Well, you know what Scottie, don’t tell me you’re offended when I say p---y but you’re not offended when Donald Trump says it,” Navarro shot back. "I’m not running for president, he is."

CNN anchor Don Lemon cut to commercial, ending the tense moment.

When the show returned, Navarro was no longer part of the panel, and Lemon explained that she had to leave.
