The Washington Post has been one of the very few news outlets seriously going after Donald Trump and his infinite infamy. And in keeping with their current trend of journalistic excellence, they recently released a story in which Trump bragged about trying to seduce and later groping a married women during a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone.
“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married,” Trump says in the audio. “Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”
And just in case you were wondering what would finally cause Trump staffers to freak out over something their boss said and realize the campaign was over, this might have been that moment.
Text from a battleground staffer, who was with colleagues when the Post story hit. "Gasps. Collective gasps. There's no way to spin this."

“Gasps. Collective gasps. There’s no way to spin this.”
That’s how despondent Trump’s team is. There is no way to spin this.
There has been no word yet on which staffer said this and if any higher-ups reacted the same, but the sheer grotesque nature of the misogynistic comments made by Trump might even cause Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s loyal campaign manager, to blush.
In short, this may be the assault on women that does him in.
