DONALD TRUMP IS ADMITTING SEXUALLY ASSAULTING WOMEN BECAUSE HE IS A STAR
GRABBING HEADLINES WITH CRUDE TALK OF GRABBING WOMEN’S GENITALS
This is beyond partisan politics. The President of the United States, the leader of the free world should be a man of integrity, smarts, empathy, high morals and a unifier. It is amazing, but Republican nominee Donald Trump possesses none of these qualities. He is unfit to be president of these United States.
The latest in his controversial presidential run is a video where Trump and former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush crudely talk about Trump’s escapades with women, implying that he does so without consent puts an exclamation point on it.
In the video obtained by Washington Post, Trump appears to be bragging about sexually assaulting women.
“And when you are a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything,” Trump said.
The sad part is nobody is surprised that Trump was saying those things. Somehow everyone knows from past revelations that Trump does not respect women. His attacks on comedian Rosie O’Donnell, Fox News host Megyn Kelly and former Miss Universe Alicia Machado are just a few examples of recent attacks on women. What makes this different is the admission of sexually assaulting women, the objectification of women, the crude language and the arrogance of what he does to women just because he is a “star.”
The question for Trump is this, how many women have you kissed against their will or grabbed by their vagina?
Let’s be very clear here. What Trump is admitting to doing is a sexual crime and it’s amazing that the media seems oblivious to the fact there are Trump’s victims out there. What would the reaction be if a Black politician was caught on tape saying something like that? What if it were President Barack Obama and not Trump on those tapes? It is amazing that this is being dismissed as “private locker room banter.” I have been in many locker rooms and I have never heard anybody confess to grabbing women “by the pussy.” Normal people do not think or talk like that. This is plain and simple. Trump has confessed to a sex crime and it’s about time victims come forward.
Trump supporters have always claimed that Trump is a gentleman in private and his public persona is just for show to attract attention and use his media savvy to dominate the headlines and carry his message. But this video gives us a view of Trump in a private setting and it reveals his crude behavior is much worse in private. This is the real Trump, bigot, crude, vulgar, vile, disgusting boorish, uncouth and a pathological liar.
What is the excuse now? Some of his supporters, believe it or not, have found a variety of ways to defend him. Fox News host an ignoramus Trump supporter Sean Hannity has dismissed the claims saying King David had 500 concubines, On CNN Trump surrogate Andre Bauer dismissed the video as old, saying it was “guy talk.” In another interview with CNN former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski also defended Trump drawing from the anti-political correctness well. “We are electing a leader for the free world, we’re not electing a Sunday school teacher,” Lewandowski said.
No excuse can sanitize this one. Trump has no business running to be president. Not only is he not incapable of the job, but he has no gravitas or the ability to comprehend what the job means and this video reveals he is a sexual predator. In this video we see a man who claims to be on a mission of Making America Great Again, who at the time was at the young age of around 60, talking about having sex with a married woman like a pubescent teen. Trump, a father of five including 2 daughters, should know better.
To illustrate the point that this man is just too childish to be president, Trump implied that he cannot control his impulses around beautiful women and he cannot summon the ability to see women as anything more that sex objects.
“I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her” Trump says of a woman he is about to meet. “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful- I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet.”
We all knew Trump was a slimy jerk already this video just gives us a vivid picture of just how deplorable and beyond redemption he is and puts him on the spot in a way that he cannot weasel out and brush off as he has done in other controversies. This videos exposes Trump is a smug spoilt brat born with a gold shovel in his mouth, to borrow the words of Republican strategist Mike Murphy, whose only attribute to attract women is his fame and perceived fortune.
If you think you have heard it all, you’re mistaken. An AP story revealed that while working on The Apprentice, the hit show that made Trump a household name, Trump demeaned women with sexist and lewd comments. According to the AP story, 8 former Apprentice Show crew members recounted about Trump making comments about a female camerawoman and comparing her beauty to that of his daughter Ivanka.
This is not the first time Trump has been accused of grabbing women. In a July 20 report in The Guardian, make-up artist Jill Harth sued Trump for sexual assault and attempted rape. In a lawsuit filed with the US District Court in New York, Trump cornered her and groped her in his daughter’s bedroom.
“He pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again,” Harth said, “and I had to physically say: ‘What are you doing? Stop it.’ It was a shocking thing to have him do this because he knew I was with George, he knew they were in the next room. And how could he be doing this when I’m there for business?” According to The Guardian Report.
Harth said, Trump, who had just divorced his first wife and was in a relationship with his second wife, continued to pursue her and even suggested that she leaves her husband calling him a loser. When Trump started his campaign, he tried to get Harth to recant her story, but she refused.
Several Republican leaders have denounced Trump and some have even called on him to step down and let his running mate Mike Pence take over. But none have called his statements an admission to a sexual sexual assault. A crime. Vice President Joe Biden, however, did not mince his words. “The words are demeaning. Such behavior is an abuse of power. It’s not lewd. It’s sexual assault. –Joe,” Biden tweeted.
The words are demeaning. Such behavior is an abuse of power. It’s not lewd. It’s sexual assault. –Joe

Speaker Paul Ryan canceled a joint campaign event with Trump, but has not unendorsed him. The harsh blowback forced Trump to come out with an apology posted in his Facebook page. In the video he pretends to apologize and then pivots to attacking Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and her husband former President Bill Clinton minimizing his crude conversation to a distraction.
The bullshit statement Trump relayed on video reads as follows:
“I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I’m not. I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong and I apologize. I’ve traveled the country talking about change for America but my travels have also changed me.
I’ve spent time with grieving mothers who have lost their children, laid-off workers whose jobs have gone to other countries and people from all walks of life who just want a better future. I have gotten to know the great people of our country and I have been humbled by the faith they have placed in me. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never, ever let you down. Let’s be honest. We’re living in the real world.
This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we’re facing today. We’re losing our jobs. We’re less safe than we were eight years ago and Washington is totally broken. Hillary Clinton and her kind have run our country into the ground. I’ve said some foolish things but there’s a big difference between the words and actions of other people. Bill Clinton has actually abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days. See you at the debate on Sunday.”
The question is where is the outrage from Trump’s evangelical supporters? Will they stand by him and excuse this one too?
