On Oct. 7, 2016, a video of Donald Trump was released. The video is that of a bus, however, the voice of the man speaking with then-“Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush is the primary portion of the tape. The vulgarity that came out of Trump’s mouth elicited chuckles from his companion.
The video was made in 2005. The king of misogyny stuck his foot in his mouth! Trump apparently believed that due to his stardom he was entitled to belittle women by kissing them, even if they did not ask for a kiss.
Chatting with Bush, Trump attempted to impress with his buddy with his sexual prowess. He said since he was a star he could do anything to women, not only kissing, but he believed that he could grab a woman’s genitalia. Trump’s voice was confident and seemed serious.
When the “Access Hollywood” bus was pulling into the lot, the so-called, “Law and Order” candidate was bragging about an encounter with a woman he called Nancy. According to him, he tried to f**k the married woman. He embellished the story by saying that he took her furniture shopping and he pushed for a carnal encounter but she did not take the bait.
This has caused a major problem for the Republican Presidential nominee. One CNN reporter said it was all over for Trump. She continued, this has given the Democratic Presidential nominee the election, with a big ribbon.
Of course, Trump’s apology fell flat. He claimed that the video was just locker room talk, and it was years ago. Then he added an insult about Bill Clinton saying far worse things when the pair were golfing together. The clincher was his last line: “I apologize if anyone was offended.”
This man is not fit to govern anything in America, let alone the entire country. Hillary Clinton responded with a Twitter post: “This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.”
Trump’s campaign staffers responded to the video with gasps, according to CNN. When asked, the consensus was it was impossible to find a nice way to back out of this obscenity. In the past, when the man said things that were offensive his team managed to put a somewhat reasonable spin on his remarks.
During the debate between Clinton and Trump, she pointed out his attitude about women. The worst example was his verbal diarrhea about former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado. He compared her to the famous Muppet, “Miss Piggy.” Then for some unfathomable reason, he called her “Miss Housekeeping.”
Instead of apologizing for that, Trump issued a slew of tweets disparaging Machado further. He intimated that there was a pornographic video the woman was in and challenged readers to watch.
In fact, one political editor has continually added a statement at the end of any article he wrote about Trump. The writer stated that the candidate was xenophobic, misogynistic, and an overall bad man.
The following comments were made below the Huffington Post article:
- Aric from Seminole College wrote: “Okay, that’s sexual assault. Such a lovely trait to have in a president,” then he added an unsmiling emoji.
- Jim from Hutchinson, Kansas said: “All of you supporters with [wives] and little girls ought to fear this man instead of support him. One scary man!”
- Patty from Toronto, Ontario added this: “And you wonder what Clinton meant when she said deplorables? Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you Mr. Deplorable.”
Trump has stepped into his own political quicksand and there is no one standing by to help pull him out!
