Donald J. Trump: You know and …
Unknown: She used to be great. She’s still very beautiful.
Donald J. Trump: I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.
Donald J. Trump: I did try and fuck her. She was married.
Unknown: That’s huge news.
Donald J. Trump: No, no, Nancy. No, this was [unintelligible] — and I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping.
She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” I took her out furniture —
I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.
Billy Bush: Sheesh, your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple.
Donald J. Trump: Whoa! Whoa!
Billy Bush: Yes! The Donald has scored. Whoa, my man!
Donald J. Trump: Look at you, you are a pussy.
Donald J. Trump: All right, you and I will walk out.
Donald J. Trump: Maybe it’s a different one.
Billy Bush: It better not be the publicist. No, it’s, it’s her, it’s —
Donald J. Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. 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.
Billy Bush: Whatever you want.
Donald J. Trump: Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.
Billy Bush: Uh, yeah, those legs, all I can see is the legs.
Donald J. Trump: Oh, it looks good.
Billy Bush: Come on shorty.
Donald J. Trump: Ooh, nice legs, huh?
Billy Bush: Oof, get out of the way, honey. Oh, that’s good legs. Go ahead.
Donald J. Trump: It’s always good if you don’t fall out of the bus. Like Ford, Gerald Ford, remember?
Billy Bush: Down below, pull the handle.
Donald J. Trump: Hello, how are you? Hi!
Arianne Zucker: Hi, Mr. Trump. How are you? Pleasure to meet you.
Donald J. Trump: Nice seeing you. Terrific, terrific. You know Billy Bush?
Billy Bush: Hello, nice to see you. How you doing, Arianne?
Arianne Zucker: Doing very well, thank you. Are you ready to be a soap star?
Donald J. Trump: We’re ready, let’s go. Make me a soap star.
Billy Bush: How about a little hug for the Donald? He just got off the bus.
Arianne Zucker: Would you like a little hug, darling?
Donald J. Trump: O.K., absolutely. Melania said this was O.K.
Billy Bush: How about a little hug for the Bushy? I just got off the bus.
Arianne Zucker: Bushy, Bushy.
Billy Bush: Here we go. Excellent. Well, you’ve got a nice co-star here.
Arianne Zucker: Yes, absolutely.
Donald J. Trump: Good. After you.
[Break in video]
Donald J. Trump: Come on, Billy, don’t be shy.
Billy Bush: Soon as a beautiful woman shows up, he just, he takes off. This always happens.
Donald J. Trump: Get over here, Billy.
Arianne Zucker: I’m sorry, come here.
Billy Bush: Let the little guy in here, come on.
Arianne Zucker: Yeah, let the little guy in. How you feel now? Better? I should actually be in the middle.
Billy Bush: It’s hard to walk next to a guy like this.
Arianne Zucker: Here, wait, hold on.
Billy Bush: Yeah, you get in the middle, there we go.
Donald J. Trump: Good, that’s better.
Arianne Zucker: This is much better. This is —
Donald J. Trump: That’s better.
Arianne Zucker: [Sighs]
Billy Bush: Now, if you had to choose honestly between one of us. Me or the Donald?
Donald J. Trump: I don’t know, that’s tough competition.
Arianne Zucker: That’s some pressure right there.
Billy Bush: Seriously, if you had — if you had to take one of us as a date.
Arianne Zucker: I have to take the Fifth on that one.
Billy Bush: Really?
Arianne Zucker: Yup — I’ll take both.
Donald J. Trump: Which way?
Arianne Zucker: Make a right. Here we go. [inaudible]
Billy Bush: Here he goes. I’m gonna leave you here.
Donald J. Trump: O.K.
Billy Bush: Give me my microphone.
Donald J. Trump: O.K. Oh, you’re finished?
Billy Bush: You’re my man, yeah.
Donald J. Trump: Oh, good.
Billy Bush: I’m gonna go do our show.
Arianne Zucker: Oh, you wanna reset? O.K.
