Former Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell has been identified as the “Nancy” who the Republican presidential nominee described trying to have sex with (even though she was married) and said now has “big phony t-ts” in the video released on Friday. And in a statement to her current employer, Entertainment Tonight, O’Dell reacted to the video:

Politics aside, I’m saddened that these comments still exist in our society at all. When I heard the comments yesterday, it was disappointing to hear such objectification of women. The conversation needs to change because no female, no person, should be the subject of such crass comments, whether or not cameras are rolling. Everyone deserves respect, no matter the setting or gender. As a woman who has worked very hard to establish her career, and as a mom, I feel I must speak out with the hope that as a society, we will always strive to be better.

O’Dell and Bush were co-hosts of Access Hollywood at the time the video was made. Bush has since apologized for his involvement in the video, saying he is “embarrassed and ashamed.” Trump released a video late Friday night apologizing for his language, but despite losing support from key Republican officials, he has vowed not to drop out of the presidential race:

Does Donald Trump owe Nancy O’Dell an apology? And should he stay in the presidential race? Hit the comments and share your thoughts.
