Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump claimed during last night's presidential debate that a recently leaked video of him bragging about grabbing women by the genitals was taken out of context.
"This was locker room talk," he said. "I am not proud of it. I apologized to my family and the American people. I am not proud of it. This is locker room talk."
But one veteran of locker rooms was skeptical.
CJ McCollum, a shooting guard for the Portland Trail Blazers, took to Twitter shortly after Trump's explanation.
"I haven't heard that one in any locker rooms," McCollum tweeted during the debate.
The video of Trump, which was first published on Friday by the Washington Post, was recorded between takes of a 2005 Access Hollywood interview. In it, Trump describes how he uses his fame to aggressively hit on women.
"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," Trump says in the video to former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush. "Grab 'em by the pussy. You can do anything."
Since the video was released, many high-profile Republican politicians who either formerly supported Trump or hadn't commented on the election have spoken out against Trump's comments, including Senator John McCain, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, House Speaker Paul Ryan and even Trump's running mate, Indiana governor Mike Pence.
And McCollum wasn't the only professional athlete who took to social media last night to say that Trump's comments weren't typical athlete banter.
"PSA: sexual advances without consent is NOT locker room talk," tweeted NBA point guard Kendall Marshall.
"What kind of fucked up locker rooms has Donald Trump been in…" tweeted Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson.
