Donald Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women.

Including in tonight’s debate, he has tried to spin that as locker room banter.

Current and former NBA players – who spend a lot of time in locker rooms – aren’t having it.

Sean Kilpatrick, a guard with the Nets, said Mr. Trump’s comments strayed well beyond locker room talk.

“That’s too much,” Mr. Kilpatrick said. “Especially for what he’s trying to run for now. You don’t want America judging you on something like that.”
