Michelle Obama said Thursday that opposing the example Donald Trump sets is a question of "basic human decency."
As she rallied voters for Hillary Clinton in swing state New Hampshire, the first lady said the leaked 2005 video of Trump joking about groping women without consent has "shaken me to my core." She contended electing Trump would set a bad precedent for the United States and the world, slamming Trump's defense that his comments were just "locker room talk."
"This was not just a lewd conversation. This wasn't locker room banter. This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior," Mrs. Obama said.
Trump said Thursday that new allegations that he inappropriately touched women without their consent are "totally and absolutely false" and he accused the news media for fabricating the stories.
