World champion boxer Floyd Mayweather says that President Trump's infamous "grab 'em by the p----" comments that surfaced during the 2016 election were how "a real man" talks.

"People don't like the truth," Mayweather, a convicted domestic abuser, said in an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, as first reported by Sports Illustrated. "He speaks like a real man spoke."

"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----. And?'" Mayweather explained.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them," Trump says in the recording. "It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything."

He adds: "Grab 'em by the p----. You can do anything."

"I feel people shy away from realness," Mayweather said when asked if Trump should have been held to a higher standard as a presidential candidate.

"This man didn't do nothing. Listen, if y'all didn't want the man in the White House, y'all should have voted the other way," he added.
