The recently released tape of Donald Trump boasting about sexually assaulting women was a hot topic during the second presidential debate. Despite knowing that these questions were certainly coming on, Trump didn’t even have a half decent explanation for his abhorrent comments. (Probably because there isn’t one.)
Debate moderator Anderson Cooper backed Trump into a corner, demanding to know what he had to say for himself after bragging that he could grab a woman “by the p*ssy” because he was a rich celebrity. “You bragged that you had sexually assaulted women, do you understand that?” asked Cooper. All Trump had up his sleeve was to claim that he didn’t say what we have tapes of him saying and then to insist that his repulsive remarks were just “locker room talk,” so no harm no foul.
When that didn’t work, Trump went full “OMG ISIS!”
Most amazing of all, Cooper actually had to force the GOP nominee to say that he hadn’t ever sexually assaulted a woman. He had to ask Trump over and over if he had ever actually done the revolting things he had described on that tape, and time after time, Trump avoided directly answering the question. Finally, after Cooper continued to press him, Trump mumbled that hadn’t ever done these horrific things. I, for one, am totally convinced. (Insert sarcasm here.)
