“I don't think you understood what was said. This was locker room talk,” Trump said. “I'm not proud of it. I apologized to my family. I apologized to the American people. Certainly, I'm not proud of it, but this is locker room talk.”
Locker-room talk is the crude, vulgar, offensive and often sexual trade of comments guys pass to each other, usually in high school locker rooms. Exists solely for the purpose of male comedy and is not meant to be taken seriously.
Unsurprisingly, professional athletes grew irate at the insinuation that similar lewd remarks were commonplace in men's locker rooms.
As an athlete, I've been in locker rooms my entire adult life and uh, that's not locker room talk.
