Just when you think Donald Trump’s worst controversy with women—calling Miss Universe a pig— has subsided, he just keeps surprising you with new worse and new low.
The Washington Post this afternoon got its hand on a video clip featuring Trump bragged in vulgar language regarding his approach to women. In a 2005 conversation with Billy Bush of Access Hollywood, Trump said, “…when you are a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy, you can do anything.”
After the clip was released, Trump soon issued a statement, “it was a locker-room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”
Is this a sincere apology? Is he really fit to be the president? What was he thinking?
No, no and who the f–k knows. Trump has said many times in public that he respects women; however, with this recorded conversation surfacing, I genuinely don’t know how he could possibly defend himself anymore. The least he could have done is to admit that he was wrong using lewd language and disrespecting women, and he did not. Pulling Bill Clinton into this controversy was sadly pathetic, because (1) he is not running for president and, (2) people are concerned with Trump and his mentality.
The clip immediately caught everyone’s attention. Turn on your TV and you will see every news network is reporting on it, questioning Trump’s morals and his attitude toward women.
Despite Trump’s major gaffe, Hillary Clinton is not having the best day as you think she would. State Department just released a new batch of Clinton emails, and WikiLeaks appeared to release transcripts of Clinton’s paid speeches.
This race is becoming more and more similar to House of Cards–the timings of these shocking revelations seem to have been coordinated in an uncanny fashion. Just two days away from the second presidential debate, new dirt keeps being unearthed, sabotaging the two candidates’ images.
