Locker Room Talk? Athletes Not Amused by Trump Explanation

DALLAS -- He went and did it Sunday night. The Donald doubled down on his newest infamous line in the second presidential debate: Locker room talk.

But is it really just one of those things? Let's run it back for those who haven't been paying attention.

This is part of the eleven-year-old comments Trump made to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush on the show's bus back in 2005:

"I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait," Trump said. "And when you're a star, they just let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p****."

Well, Trump seems to have fired up a new group of people with his 'locker room talk'.

Professional athletes.

Players from across the pro sports sector took to Twitter Sunday night during the debate, and they were displeased with The Donald. It went from rolling eyes to full denial that athletes say those things, and it even included a public service announcement.



What do the hometown Dallas Mavericks think? Needless to say, they're not amused.

“Are you really asking me to decipher what’s going through Donald Trump’s mind when he says things?" asked Mavs Coach Rick Carlisle. "Isn’t that a little unfair of you to presume anyone could do that?"

So what is locker room talk? They say it's not what Donald Trump says it is.

“We talk about life, talk about basketball," said Point Guard Deron Williams. "I mean, there are so many different conversations that go on in the locker room throughout the year."

Maybe it's the guys in the locker rooms that have the true pulse on the conversations we should be having.
