Here we go again. Donald Trump did his first televised interview since his shocking video talking about groping women was revealed, and he genuinely believes it didn’t damage his support from female voters. We have all the details on the Oct. 11 Bill O’Reilly interview, right here.
Donald Trump, 70, has had a VERY long week of trying again and again to explain away the creepy video where he talked about trying to sleep with Nancy O’Dell when they were both married and degrading women with Billy Bush. Yet again he talked about the issue on Oct. 11, when he did his first television interview with Bill O’Reilly on The O’Reilly Factor, and it doesn’t seem like he learned his lesson at all.

Bill gave Donald the opportunity to explain how he plans to get back the support of women who were offended by the video, to which Donald responded “I’m not sure I believe it.” Uhh… Donald, it’s a fact. Hillary Clinton has a 29 point lead over Donald among educated women, according to a WSJ poll. Apparently Donald just doesn’t care about facts.
“What women want is secure borders, safety, law and order, a police department that’s allowed to do it’s job, justice for all, all of this stuff that everyone else wants and Hillary can’t do it,” he argued. On top of that, he said that he doesn’t think his personality is losing him support from the GOP or women. “I don’t think I’m that outspoken to be honest with you. I think I’ve been very nice. I went to ivy league schools. The fact is that I think we should get support and we don’t from guys like Paul Ryan.” Okay, Donald.
Bill is an interesting choice for Donald to do his first interview with post-scandal, especially considering that Bill has had multiple sexual harassment lawsuits filed against him. In 2004 his former coworker Andrea Makris said he would harass her by talking about his sexual fantasies. She sued him and he settled. Then in 2016 when Andrea Tantaros sued Fox News and Roger Ailes, she said that Bill, whom she had considered a friend, began sexually harassing her by “asking her to come to stay with him on Long Island where it would be ‘very private,’” and that he thought she had a “wild side.” Gross.
Of course, this is round four for Donald trying to get this whole ordeal to just go away. Right after the video was revealed by Washington Post, Donald put out a statement with absolutely no remorse, expressing frustration that he was recorded without his permission and calling it “locker room talk.” Later that night (after much pressure) he apologized in an odd, stiff video that looked like a hostage tape. Then at the debates, he tried to deflect attention by saying that he never actually DID those things, that ISIS a bigger concern, and that Bill Clinton did worse. Yikes.
