GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS (HOST): You say that it is embarrassing to watch. But the problem isn't just the words. As both Senator McCain and Vice President Biden pointed out, what Trump is describing in that tape is sexual assault.

RUDY GIULIANI: That's what he's talking about. You know, whether it happened or not, I don't know. How much exaggeration was involved in that? I don't know. I do know there's a tendency on the part of some men at different times to exaggerate things like this. I'm not in any way trying to excuse it or condone it. There is no excuse or answer for it other than, “I'm very sorry and I wish I hadn't done it and I'm not like that anymore.” That sort of goes back to my faith, I guess. You confess your sins and you make a firm resolution not to commit that sin again, and then the priest gives you absolution. And then, hopefully, you're a changed person. We believe that people in this country can change.
