As long as your humble scribe has been taking a few minutes out of his weekends to remind you that Donald Trump is a dangerous man with a personality disorder (like my lunatic Dad) I have been met with stony silence. A small part of that has been due to the fact no one reads this blog, but putting that aside: WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?
He sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after. He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently. (In the hours after it was revealed in October 2016, Mr. Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.)
Donald J. Trump is no longer of the opinion that he said what he said. Sure, Billy Bush got fired for it but so what? The President now denies making the comments that he spent weeks dignifying as “locker room talk”. The Most Powerful Man In The World doesn’t believe that he was in any way involved in a conversation that ignited a political scandal – because of saying the horrible things he said, that he immediately admitted to, and apologized for, but now he says were just fake. Nope, not him.
Alright. NOW do you believe me?
