Lewd Trump Tape Prompts GOP Nominee to Say He’s Heard Worse from Bill Clinton, by Briget Johnson. A leaked tape of Donald Trump making lewd comments on a hot mic back in 2005:
Trump is talking about an unidentified woman. “I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it,” he said. “I did try and f— her. She was married. And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture,. I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”
Bush notes actress Arianne Zucker, who’s waiting for Trump outside the bus. “Your girl’s hot as s—, in the purple,” Bush said.
“Whoa!” Trump replied. “Whoa!”
“I’ve gotta use some Tic-Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump continued. “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want,” said another voice believed to be Bush.
“Grab them by the p—y,” Trump replied. “You can do anything.”
Trump apologizes, Hillary feigns outrage, Trump says Bill Clinton is much worse than him:
The Trump campaign released a statement from the GOP nominee: “This was 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.”
Clinton tweeted: “This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.”
Policy positions in the US are being championed by some exceptionally flawed characters this year.
UPDATE from Scott Adams, creator of the Dilbert cartoon.
I assume that 75% of male heads of state, including our own past presidents, are total dogs in their private lives. Like it or not, Trump is normal in that world. …
Another rich, famous, tall, handsome married guy once told me that he can literally make-out and get handsy with any woman he wants, whether she is married or not, and she will be happy about it. I doubted his ridiculous claims until I witnessed it three separate times. So don’t assume the women were unwilling. (Has anyone come forward to complain about Trump? …
Trump wasn’t running for Pope. He never claimed moral authority. His proposition has been that he’s an asshole (essentially), but we need an asshole to fight ISIS, ignore lobbyists, and beat up Congress. …
My prediction of a 98% chance of Trump winning stays the same. … if the new battleground is spousal fidelity, you have to like Trump’s chances.
