(CBS NEWS) — Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that Republican nominee Donald Trump is a “flawed” man who is asking for forgiveness for the lewd comments he made about women on a 2005 tape.

“I think what it says about his character is that he’s a flawed human being,” Giuliani said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “He has his set of flaws and I have mine. I guess there are a few perfect people but in my view there’s only been one and that was Jesus Christ.”
