Saturday morning, yawn. My place is a shithole.
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful. 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,” Trump continues. “You can do anything … Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
I really need to clean up this mess.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah) was the first GOP member of Congress to peel off Friday night, declaring on a local TV station, “I’m out.” He said he didn’t know who he was going to vote for now, but it wouldn’t be Trump or Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
This is why I hate the weekend.
The floodgates were open by Saturday morning. Here’s a running list of the GOP members of Congress, senators and governors rescinding their endorsements for Trump or calling on him to step down, one month before the election, after seeing the video.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah)
Rep. Martha Roby (Ala.)
Rep. Chris Stewart (Utah)
Rep. Bradley Byrne (Ala.)
Rep. Joe Heck (Nev.)
Rep. Cresent Hardy (Nev.)
Rep. Scott Garrett (N.J.)
Rep. Ann Wagner (Mo.)
Rep. Rodney Davis (Mo.)
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.)
Sen. Mike Crapo (Idaho)
Sen. John Thune (S.D.)
Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.)
Sen. Dan Sullivan (Alaska)
Gov. Gary Herbert (Utah)
Gov. Dennis Dauggard (S.D.)
This is nothing. It’s not like he said he’d raise income taxes on the rich. You can’t sway Republicans with moral shock because they don’t have any morals. They’re half-formed beings. Gob-smacked little toadies, cowering and confused. Douchebags. Nice try, Politics, but all of these people who today are so outraged will be pulling the Trump lever next month as if their bank accounts depended upon it.
You doubt me? You fools, I’ve been writing about this forever.
Just look at the base. How do they feel?
“People of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defund Planned Parenthood, defend religious liberty and oppose the Iran nuclear deal,” said Ralph Reed, who heads the Faith & Freedom Coalition. “A ten-year-old tape of a private conversation with a talk show host ranks low on their hierarchy of concerns.”
Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas and a member of Trump’s Evangelical Executive Advisory Board, said … he’s still voting Trump…
“I said at that time, with Trump sitting next to me, I would not necessarily choose this man to be my child’s Sunday School teacher,” Jeffress said. “But that’s not what this election is about.”…
And David Bozell, a Roman Catholic who heads the conservative group ForAmerica and supports Trump, said the audio won’t change how conservative voters view the candidate…
The conservatives who should be most concerned with a candidate’s character aren’t even blinking. Because morality has never mattered to them. These are the people who abuse their wives, get their fellatio on the down low, cheer our every war and think the death penalty is a bedrock moral principle. Right and wrong are not priorities for them as they are for you, or me. ‘Ethics’ is a card game to be played in order to pocket ever-bigger stakes. And, outside of war, which all god-fearing Americans love even beyond football, a presidential election wages the greatest stakes of all.
So don’t bother kidding yourselves, absolutely nothing has changed. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the country’s congressional leaders.
“As the father of three daughters, I strongly believe that Trump needs to apologize directly to women and girls everywhere, and take full responsibility for the utter lack of respect for women shown in his comments on that tape.”
Good thing ole’ Mitch has some daughters. Otherwise we’d be seeing him fist-pumping on Facesnap or woo! lighting his farts in the Senate chambers. The Speaker of the House:
“I am sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests.”
Paul’s tummy, it hurts. OWWW. Please, Mr. Next President, could you not keep doing whatever it is you just did? Those things that are making everybody else so angry? Because water is wet, and the dirt is dark, and your ballsack is kinda heavy? Whew THANKS pal, because after all, Paul has a life of his own you know. He’d love to get back to cleaning his shithole apartment, gah.
