When the Trump tape came to light, his first thought was to use the Pee-Wee Herman defence. ‘I might be bad, but the other guy is worse! It just is not good enough. When a candidate for the US Presidency talks of his celebrity giving him the freedom to “grab women by the pussy”, this is no longer funny. But then, was it ever?
As of this moment, the 2016 presidential election is over. Trump’s comments, his demeaning of women and minorities has reached a point where it’ll drag the GOP down with him. GOP commentators, funders, supporters & leaders need to answer this question:
What did you do when you saw the Trump tape?
When he boasts about his celebrity power giving him carte blanche to – effectively – sexually threaten women. What did you say? What did you do?
If you think Trump is in any way fit to be either the next president of the USA or the face of US conservatism then you need your head examined.
It is become a serious question, and one senior GOP commentators are openly fighting about. Just check out the video clips from a GOP discussion on this issue on CNN. Infighting, GOP civil war – it isn’t pretty. The bloodletting has escalated.
