In Britain, thousands of people filled Parliament Square Monday to voice their opposition to President Trump, as lawmakers debated whether to cancel his state visit. This is Parliament member Paula Sherriff.
Paula Sherriff: “Does he agree that to use the expression ‘Grab ’em by the pussy’ describes a sexual assault, and therefore suggests that he shouldn’t be afforded a visit to our queen?”
Paul Flynn: “Entirely agree. I mean, his manner, his behavior throughout the election period of one that’s greatly worrying.”
And that’s British Parliament member Paul Flynn, agreeing that Trump’s comments captured in a 2005 NBC “Access Hollywood” video constitute him bragging about sexual assault. Nearly 2 million Brits have signed a petition calling on President Trump’s official state visit to be canceled, arguing it would cause embarrassment to the queen. We’ll go to London later in the broadcast.
