Billionaire investor Carl Icahn is sticking by Donald Trump in the wake of Friday's damaging video where the presidential nominee is seen making lewd comments about women.

Icahn said such comments are common place and quoted Jesus, saying those casting stones should look at their own behavior first.

Icahn told CNBC:

"Over my years I've listened to a lot of salacious talk in locker rooms, bachelor parties etc. by a lot of high-level people, some of whom are now supposedly so outraged. All I can do is refer to that great quote, 'Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.'"
