IF?:

Ryan 'sickened' by Trump comments on groping women, joint appearance off (AP October 8, 2016)

"I am sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests. In the meantime, he is no longer attending tomorrow's event in Wisconsin," said Ryan, who has had a rocky relationship with Trump.

In a statement after the tape was revealed, Trump called his comments "locker room banter" and a "private conversation that took place many years ago."

"Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course -- not even close," he said. "I apologize if anyone was offended."


Trump's running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, was "beside himself" and his wife was furious, according to a person familiar with their thinking.
