Just when you thought Donald Trump couldn’t be more derogatory towards women, he goes and hits it out of the ballpark!

Leaked audio of the US presidential candidate for the Republican Party making lewd comments about American soap star Arianne Zucker have been exposed – and they’re not pretty.

Following an interview Donald did with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush in 2005, a hot microphone recorded the pair exchanging words before they were greeted by Arianne, the star of Days of Our Lives, the show Donald was guest starring on at the time.

‘Sheesh, your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple… Yes, the Donald has scored. Whoa, my man!’ Billy can be heard remarking to the confident businessman.

‘Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her,’ Donald replied – and that’s when things went from bad to worse.

‘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 them by the p—-. You can do anything,’ he continued to brag.

But that’s not all. Moments earlier, they were recorded discussing Billy’s married Miss Universe co-host Nancy O’Dell.

‘I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f— her. She was married… I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married,’ Donald can be heard telling Billy.

‘And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said: “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.”

‘Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.’

Donald married his now-wife Melania Trump that same year.

Unaware of the ‘locker-room banter’ until it was released Friday, US time, Arianne and Nancy hit back at the candidate shortly after the recording went viral.

Taking to Twitter, Arianna wrote: ‘My name is Arianne (R-E-on) ZUCKER (Zooker) and I am a strong, independent, hardworking mother, businesswoman and partner to a great man. I have grown to learn that the words of others cannot effect the value of my self worth or define the content of my character. How we treat one another, whether behind closed doors, locker rooms or face to face, should be done with kindness, dignity and respect. Unfortunately, there are too many people in power who abuse their position and disregard these simple principles and are rewarded for it. In understanding the magnitude of this situation, I choose to stand tall with self-respect and use my voice to enrich, inspire and elevate the best of who we are as people.’

Long-time journalist Nancy released a statement slamming Donald’s shocking comments. ‘Politics aside, I’m saddened that these comments still exist in our society at all. When I heard the comments yesterday, it was disappointing to hear such objectification of women. The conversation needs to change because no female, no person, should be the subject of such crass comments, whether or not cameras are rolling. Everyone deserves respect no matter the setting or gender. As a woman who has worked very hard to establish her career, and as a mum, I feel I must speak out with the hope that as a society we will always strive to be better.’

As for Donald, he says: ‘This was locker-room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago… I apologise if anyone was offended.’
