One of the biggest storylines heading into the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election is how now-President Donald Trump bragged about grabbing women "by the p*ssy," in a video from the past but Floyd Mayweather sees nothing wrong with those comments.
Mayweather had an interview with Hollywood Unlocked and talked about Trump's controversial and degrading remarks, doubling down on Trump's assertions during the election campaign that his comments were simply "locker room talk." Mayweather would then say that President Trump's comments are just how real men speak.
"People don’t like the truth," Mayweather said. "He speak like a real man spoke. Real men speak like, 'Man, she had a fat ass. You see her ass? I had to squeeze her ass. I had to grab that fat ass.' Right? So he talking locker room talk. Locker room talk. 'I’m the man, you know what I’m saying? You know who I am. Yeah, I grabbed her by the p*ssy. And?'"
Mayweather has not had a spotless record when it comes to domestic violence, having been convicted and accused of domestic violence numerous times in the past. The undefeated former world champion told Hollywood Unlocked that if people were so offended by Trump's comments, then they should have voted for another candidate during the election.
"I feel people shy away from realness," Mayweather said. "This man didn’t do nothing. Listen, if y’all didn’t want the man in the White House, y’all should have voted the other way. It ain’t like he went and robbed—he done his homework. He did what he had to do and he got there."
The former pound-for-pound boxing king had recently won his 50th professional boxing match when he defeated UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor back on August 26. Mayweather has since then re-retired and does not plan on ever boxing again. Mayweather and Trump are good friends and Trump even attended Mayweather's 2015 victory over Manny Pacquiao.
