Is any of this really coming as a surprise to anyone who has been in touch with the modern world in the past 6+ months?
Trump is #2 in GOP Field - Page 394
The Trump has been stumped.
I can't speak for the religious right, but I'm having a tough time being shocked by Trump's comments. That's because I've been in a dorm room, a locker room, a bachelor party, a bar, and every other place where guys talk that way.
Agreed, but it's a different story if you're in a position of power and you've been accused of sexual assault for decades. It's one thing to make jokes and boast to friends, it's another if you basically confirm everything you've been accused of.
The media has done a bit of a disservice by acting like this is about coarse language. Trump is bragging about sexual assault, not just "ayyyy I fucked some bitch!"
I thought it was crass but mundane locker room talk until he said he grabs women by the pussy and they let him since he's famous. That's over the line by any standard.
That was a throwaway line, to be fair. Could easily have been a joke making fun of how slutty the money grubbing bimbos he runs into are. Or could have been admitting to sexual assault. Like I said before, a normal guy saying that in a locker room, you might give him the benefit of the doubt. With Trump's history, I'm not sure we should.
You guys must hang out with different people than me or in different locker rooms because I don't think I have heard guys talk that way. Then again, I don't give a shit if they have, nor do I care compared to policy.
Per five thirty eight, there's a <1% chance he'll get electoral votes and the election will go to the House which could give ol' Gary the W.
You're probably half-right.
