Of course we couldn’t go through the final presidential debate without Donald Trump addressing the several woman who claimed that he sexually assaulted them. He says that it was all Hillary’s doing and that he ‘didn’t even apologize to his wife’ because he didn’t do it. Here’s the scoop.
Donald Trump, 70, faced off against Hillary Clinton, 68, on Oct. 19 for the final presidential debate. The GOP nominee didn’t make it very long before moderator Chris Wallace questioned him about the multiple women who have said he assaulted them, and of course his reaction was terrible. He wasn’t sure how to dodge the question, so he came up with two excuses: the women were fame-hungry liars or Hillary planned it.

“Why would so many different women in so many different circumstances over so many different years, make this up?” asked Chris. “Those stories have been largely debunked,” said Donald. “I believe it was her campaign that did it. I didn’t even apologize to my wife because I didn’t do anything.”
If Hillary didn’t have anything to do with it, Donald has a backup plan: the women were lying for attention. “I think they want either fame or her campaign did it,” he raved. “I believe she got these people to come forward. If she didn’t, they got their 10 minutes of fame.” Yeah Donald, because everyone wants to be famous for something like that.
Hillary wasn’t pleased with him once again bashing the brave women who spoke out. “He goes after their dignity, their self-worth, so we now know who Donald is and how he acts toward women,” said Hillary.”I think it’s up to all of us to demonstrate who we are and who our country is and show what we expect from our next president.”
Even before the debate, we knew when Donald stood on his accusers. He has repeatedly said that they were lying, and his wife Melania backed up his claims in an interview with Anderson Cooper, where she claimed the media was trying to sabotage him.
In an attempt to clear his name before, Donald mocked the appearance of Jessica Leeds, the woman who said he groped her on an airplane over 30 years ago. “Just look at her,” he said in a mocking tone. “She wouldn’t be my first choice.” Oh great, Donald, glad to know you’d be pickier about the woman you assault?
