November 8 is officially election day, but October 7 will go down in history as the day Hillary Clinton clinched the presidency.
In case you just came out of a cave in Outer Mongolia, you are no doubt aware that the Washington Post obtained a video in which Donald Trump admitted trying to seduce a married woman and bragged that, as a celebrity he could–and did–get away with sexually assaulting women by doing things like grabbing them by the pussy.
His phrase. There goes the remaining shreds of the pussy, I mean women’s, vote. Though Trump probably thinks he could grab a woman’s pussy on 5th avenue and still get elected.
The Donald wrote the offensive comments off as locker room banter, adding, “I apologize if anyone was offended.”
In his second attempt at an “apology,” Trump said,
Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize.
Yes, we know you all too well. The Donald has officially claimed the nomination…as the most unworthy presidential nominee in history.
In the short time since the story broke, it’s been amusing to watch panicked Republican stumbling over each other to denounce their presidential nominee…as they flee for their political lives. A gathering cyclone of Republicans are calling for The Donald to step down, but the ever-defiant Trump has vowed to fight on.
I will go into this more in depth in future posts, but I feel that I need to amend my last post.
Though the Trump campaign’s plan prior to Friday’s bombshell was indeed to avoid sinking into the gutter in Sunday’s debate by presenting Trump a champion of conservative causes, that strategy seems to have been tossed out the window.
When attacked, Trump’s instinct–taught by his mentor, Redbaiter Roy Cohn–is to punch back even harder.
Bill Clinton has actually abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days.
Get out your umbrellas and slip on your rain gear, the next month is going to be a slog in the muck.
