Would you ever tolerate a boss who bragged that he could grab your p***y and kiss you any time? I doubt it. Then how come America’s women are faced with potentially having a president who thinks sexual assault is A-OK? Why isn’t this guy disqualified?
Donald Trump was exposed Oct. 7, shockingly boasting on videotape that he tried to f**k Access Hollywood’s then-co-anchor, Nancy O’Dell. “I did try and f**k her. She was married,” he blabbed to Nancy’s co-anchor, Billy Bush . Trump was gleefully enjoying his crude conversation. He complained that Nancy’s “now got big phony tits” and bragged that he can’t help himself from “kissing” beautiful women. “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.” “Grab them by the pu**y. You can do anything,” was his final deplorable kicker.
Now, Donald Trump has tried to defend his misogynist behavior by excusing it as simply “locker room talk.” He used this phrase repeatedly to explain away his behavior when he was questioned about the vile video during the second presidential debate on Oct. 9. As if calling it “locker room talk” made it ok! The question is – do we really want a president who even indulges in this kind of women objectifying behavior in ever?
While Trump pointed out in an initial apology issued late Friday night, that the video was recorded “a decade” ago, we’ve heard plenty of nasty attacks on women come out of Trump’s mouth since his campaign started.
He’s called women “pigs,” “slobs,” “dogs,” “disgusting,” and “losers” during debates, even slamming Rosie O’Donnell in the first presidential debate. He attacked former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, on Twitter and then on the Fox & Friends TV show, on Sept. 27, complaining that she was a problem because “she gained a massive amount of weight.” He called her “the absolute worst” and then tweeted that people should check out her “sex tape,” which turned out to be non-existent.
Trump, over the course of the campaign, insulted renowned TV anchor Megyn Kelly, calling her a “bimbo,” slammed GOP presidential contender Carly Fiorina’s looks – “look at that face, would anyone vote for that?”- and announced that Heidi Klum was “no longer a 10.”
On top of this, 20 former Apprentice contestants have now come forward and claimed that Trump reportedly sexually harassed women behind the scenes of the show, according to the AP. He was accused of talking about which women contestants he would “f**k,” and, commented on the breast size of one woman. So, it’s not like the Access Hollywood videotape captured an isolated incident. Donald Trump has displayed consistent and unrelenting disrespect for women along with a heavy dose of crudeness and rudeness for years, as well as on the campaign trail.
But, his words on the Access Hollywood videotape, admitting that he’s ok with forcibly grabbing women’s private parts and kissing women, demonstrate that he actually believes he’s entitled to sexually assault women. And, in case you missed last night night’s debate, moderator Anderson Cooper had to repeatedly ask Trump whether he had ever sexually assaulted a woman, before Trump finally denied doing that.
Should we be okay with this man being one of our two top choices for president? Why does being an admitted groper not disqualify him for the highest office in the land?
Surely, that, combined with his racism and bigotry, should have ended his candidacy! Remember, the president is a role model for children and business leaders. When Donald Trump “normalizes” misogyny, it normalizes it in workplaces and schools, and that will directly affect you.
Hollywoodlifers, do you think Donald Trump’s crude comments about Nancy O’Dell, as well as his other sexist behavior, should disqualify him for being president? Let me know.
