In an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Mayweather talked about Trump's infamous "Grab them by the p***y" remarks. He said:
People don't like the truth... He speak like a real man spoke. Real men speak like, 'Man, she had a fat a**. You see her a**? I had to squeeze her a**. I had to grab that fat a**.' 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***y. And?'
Tapper was referring to the boxer's history of domestic abuse, especially the two instances in which Mayweather pleaded guilty. In 2010, he punched his ex-girlfriend in front of their two children, which landed him a 90-day prison sentence.
They think they are real men, but they are, In fact, the opposite.— Susan Pattenaude (@SusanSPatt) September 15, 2017
And, both are such gentlemen. Seriously?? A domestic abuser and the current occupant of the White House . Great examples of honorable men☹️— brightlight (@brightwood148) September 15, 2017
Thx for always being a gentleman. Unlike Mayweather & POTUS.— Heart,Sleeve~Kristin (@KLM_blessed) September 15, 2017
These "real men" are no more than acquaintances. They first met eight days after Trump was elected, and Mayweather attended the January 20 inauguration. Trump has also seen Mayweather in the ring on several occasions, including the 2015 match with Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas.
