You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.
What most people seem to have ignored are the five words, "they let you do it."
By definition, if they let you do it, it's consensual. And that was the whole point of Trump's boast.
"Grab 'em by the pussy" isn't a particularly romantic formulation. And, taken out of context, it does imply a certain forcefulness. But it's true that if you're a star, women are far more likely to accept and even encourage awkward passes.
Trump wasn't entirely right, as we can see from all the famous people being taken down by #Metoo. But to deny that some women are dazzled by stardom is to deny human nature.
Trump's comment may have shown what an egotistical buffoon he is, but it did not reveal him to be guilty of assault.
