'Days of our Lives' Star Arianne Zucker on Leaked Donald Trump Tape: "These Are Offensive Comments For Women. Period."

Arianne Zucker expressed her disdain over the comments
made on the leaked 2005 Donald Trump tape.
Emmy nominated Days of our Lives star Arianne Zucker visited NBC's Today on Wednesday and shared her thoughts on comments made by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump after leaked Access Hollywood tapes from 2005 showed him and Today host Billy Bush making lewd comments about her.

“They are offensive comments for women. Period,” she told NBC’s Today on Wednesday.

But Zucker said she was not shocked. “Not with that type of personality. Which is probably why it doesn’t mean a lot to me.”

All of the attention following the leaked video feels “very surreal,” the actress continued, adding that she hasn’t been able to turn on the television in the last few days without seeing the video everywhere.

“I want to teach my daughter that if she ever gets put in a situation like Mommy is [in] right now, that she will hold her head high,” she said.

Trump told Bush in 2005 that he could sexually harass women, namely “grab them by the p***y,” because “when you’re a star, you can do anything.”

The blowback was fast, and severe. A number of Republicans have pulled their support for the party’s nominee. And in the last 24 hours alone, four women have accused Trump of groping them.

Zucker said she is planning to vote but won’t say for whom.
