Hey Trump…throughout your campaign you have continually said that “Nobody has more respect for women than me.” Really?? Dude, after listening to this vulgar tape, I’m convinced that respect doesn’t mean what you think it means.
On Friday, a new tape came out giving us yet another example of how Trump thinks about and treats women. The recording is from 2005 and features a conversation that Trump had with Billy Bush, who at the time was an anchor for Access Hollywood. The conversation was caught on a hot mike and it’s absolutely vulgar.
Only 24% of women currently have a favorable opinion of the misogynist…and this tape will definitely not help that. But for the life of me, I can’t understand how ANY woman could vote for this man.
In this 2005 conversation, Trump said,
“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy.”
At one point in the tape Trump brags about trying to sleep with a married woman. And this was just months after he married Melania.
“I moved on her actually, she was down in Palm Beach and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try to fuck her, she was married … and I moved on her very heavily.”
“I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture and I told her ‘I’ll show you where you can get some nice furniture,'” Trump is heard saying. “I moved on her like a bitch, and I could not get there, and she was married. And all the sudden I see her and she’s got the big phony tits, she’s totally changed her look.”
He also said that because he’s a celebrity he can do anything he wants to women. He said he would just “grab them by the pussy.”
In response to the major backlash he’s getting over this, Trump put out a statement to try and calm people down. The statement reads,
“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”
He may be trying to play the ‘boys will be boys’ card. But “Sorry if people are offended” is most definitely NOT an apology.
Trump continues to attempt to defend the horrible things he has said about women by saying “a lot of that was done for the purpose of entertainment.”
I’m sorry but I fail to see how disrespecting and degrading women is remotely entertaining.
