“Let he who is without sin…” Or, 8 unacceptable responses to the Trump tape

3. No one could have predicted this.

See above.  He admitted to seducing married women in two books.  Also, one of the producers of The Apprentice tweeted this very unsurprising revelation:

As my seventeen year old daughter explores which college to attend, the appeal of the Ivy League schools (if she were blessed enough to get in) is strong.  It’s hard to resist the hundreds of years of academic excellence, her father’s legacy from Harvard Law School, and the sense of accomplishment from earning that acceptance letter.
