Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday that Donald Trump had a "sickness" with women in light of his comments on a 2005 videotape that led to as many as 10 women to accuse the Republican nominee of sexual assault.
"In my younger days, I was an athlete," the Nevada Democrat, 76, a former amateur boxer, told Manu Raju on CNN. "Football, baseball.
"I was in a lot of raunchy gyms when I was fighting.
"And you know, no one talked that way," Reid said. "No one. You would be picking a fight with somebody.
"That stuff left us in elementary school. When you didn't understand what life was all about.
"We have now 10 women that we know of that have come forward that we know of that he sexually assaulted them," Reid said. "That's a crime."
But the senator hesitated to say that Trump had committed any crimes.
"I don't know, you know?
"You have to have somebody file a complaint," he told Raju. "You can't do it without someone doing that.
"These are people who are trapped. They are with this man in public places, and, like an airplane, he puts his hands under somebody's skirt on an airplane.
"The woman moves her seat.
"I mean, for me, I can't understand," Reid said. "I don't know about a crime, but it is kind of a sickness."
