The Sleaziness of Donald Trump

The Sleaziness of Donald Trump
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD OCT. 7, 2016

And so we have now heard the Republican nominee for president of the United States bragging about repeated sexual assault.

Donald Trump — a man who aspires to represent the highest ideals of the nation to his fellow citizens and the world — is heard on a videotape obtained by The Washington Post talking about how he would force himself on women. He could even grab them between their legs, he boasted.

“And when you’re a star they let you do it,” he said.

In a statement released after the video became public on Friday, Mr. Trump tried to minimize the conversation as “locker room banter.” As if the problem were just his words rather than his actions.

“I apologize,” he added, “if anyone was offended.”

If?

1. Insanity

 


Its insanity the over all media is still not calling for Trump to get out of this race. Its not
enough to just say what he said was wrong. I really don't know how these sleaze balls
sleep at night.

3. I blame the media for Trump

 

He has always been a scum ball con artist, a Russian spy, a misogynist assaulter of woman, a damn birther and a racist POS. But the news media has ignored all these things and tried to make Hillary equivalent to that human dreck.

Now as early voting has already started...now...NOW!!! they finally discover what all democrats have known for the last two years at least!

Donald Trump is a damn menace to the country and the world and any female he is standing close enough by to assault!

FU MSM!!! You bastards have given us Hitler to vote for!

May God have mercy on this country/world if that pig gains the oval office!

2. Excellent title! Damn well earned that, didn't he?

"We elect our presidents in the hope that they will do their best for us, including to try — whatever their flaws and ours — to represent the best in us. There is no such hope for Donald Trump."

Good call out from the NYT, working.. thank you!

5. He didn't say grab them between their legs

 

He said "grab them in the pussy."

The Republican nominee for President said that he was a star, so he could do anything, anything, grab them in the pussy.

A grown ass, sixty year old man, mind you. Not some shithead nineteen year old. A sixty year old man says he can grab them in the pussy.

It's truly beyond belief what the Trump supporters have subjected the Republic to.

8. Trump: Sleazy 60 year old = sleazy 70 year old.

 

Very good opinion piece. To the point.

Mr. Trump also noted that Bill Clinton had “said far worse to me on the golf course.” Who knows if that is true, and why should anyone care? Mr. Clinton is not running for president, and, at least until now, Republican politicians have not treated his private behavior as the standard by which they should be judged.
