ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama said that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would disqualify himself from a job application at 7-Eleven due to his intolerable comments, during a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday (October 11). "The guy says stuff that nobody would find tolerable if they were applying for a job at 7-Eleven. Or you, I mean I don't know what job, if you were kind of vetting somebody for a job and then you heard what somebody said on tape about women, set aside what they were saying, that you would hire that person for that job. And, the fact that now you've got people saying, well we strongly disapprove, we really disagree, we find those comments disgusting. But we're still endorsing him, we still think he should be president. That doesn't make sense to me," Obama said. Obama told the group that the lewd comments Trump was heard making in a 2005 recording that was released last Friday (October 7) were something that any "decent human being" would condemn. Polls show that Trump has fallen further behind Clinton since the release of the recording and now trails her by 8 points among likely voters, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll, with 1 in 5 Republicans saying his vulgar comments about groping women disqualify him from the presidency.
