A secret tape of Donald Trump has emerged.
You’ll note that it didn’t see the light of day UNTIL he had sewn up the nomination, but it is so damning that Republicans have no choice but to demand that Trump step down.
Here is what he said in a private conversation when he thought no one else was listening:
“You know 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 them by the pussy. You can do anything. I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f—her.…I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married … Then, all of a sudden, I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”
In other words, he’s just another Bill Clinton.
This type of behavior is fine with the likes of the Democratic Party. They’ve proven that over the years. In fact, their standard-bearer this year, Hillary Clinton, systematically attempted to destroy the victims of Bill Clinton’s Trumpish behavior. And in the case of the Clintons, the list is a long one of Cosbyish proportions.
The Republicans are better than that, at least I hope they are.
Former Trump operative, Corey Lewandowski tried to downplay the impact of this expose’ by claiming “we’re electing a president, not a Sunday school teacher” as if character is irrelevant to the presidency.
I am sick of the degradation of American politics. Sure, the Clintons are worse. But Donald Trump is going to continue the trend line of American decline into slime.
I have no idea what is involved, but I’d like to see party leaders call for him to step down to avoid another national nightmare. I know, I know, some readers will say that guarantees a Hillary election. Maybe you’re right, but at least we could hold our heads high and set an example for the rest of the country.
Would Trump step down? Unlikely. But if he stays on the ticket, he hurts Republicans more than he helps them. And besides, what Republican wouldn’t vote for Mike Pence? Now there’s a decent man of conservative values who knows how to lead.
I asked my wife a sincere question this morning: “What is wrong with our system? We have the most democratic process of determining candidates in history. How did we end up with such terrible choices?”
Here is her response: “We can’t blame the system, it is the American people who are to blame. Sadly, America has gotten what it deserves in these two candidates.”
I can’t vote for a predator, which, in Donald Trump’s own words, is what the man is.
However, I would leap at an opportunity to vote for a man of principle, which by all accounts defines Mr. Pence.
Every Republican with an ounce of principle and every Christian with an ounce of faith should scream from the top of their lungs: “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”
As I played the video clip above from the iconic movie, “Network,” and listened to Peter Finch express the anger which has only deepened since this film was released in 1976, my wife said, “That’s why Trump won the nomination, people said ‘they don’t want to take it anymore.'”
Nor do I.
I don’t want take Clinton OR Trump sleaze anymore. I’m sick of it.
Either candidate guarantees more sleaze and decline for America. Republicans can’t do anything about Hillary’s candidacy, but they do have leverage on Trump’s.
They should use every last scrap of principled political leverage to make that man abandon his candidacy.
If you don’t think this is a big deal, we’re in bigger trouble than I thought.
