Northeastern University’s athletic director knew he had to do something. Donald Trump’s boorish comments about kissing, groping, and trying to have sex with women — remarks from 2005 that were first revealed in early October — had ignited a national conversation.
Peter Roby was appalled, especially after he heard Trump later defend his comments as just “locker room” talk.
“I said, ‘I just want to say this is not something we teach or condone,’ ” Roby recalled Monday. “That comment [about locker room talk] was so inappropriate, and it contributes to why we have the issues we have.”
