Warnings are popping up, advising parents that they may not want to let their children watch Sunday night’s debate. There is a high probability that a variety of “sensitive” topics may come up that may not be suitable for young audience. Things are expected to get ugly and according to NBC News, the debate will almost certainly to devolve into TV-MA territory.

Donald Trump’s campaign has been signalling that he is planning to use Bill Clinton’s past scandals, including extra-marital affairs, as a weapon against Hillary in the second presidential debate. And since Trump has been retweeting a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by the former president, it is reasonable to assume that the GOP nominee may be planning to bring this up at tonight’s debate as well.
It is a given that the hot topic of Sunday’s debate will be the tape of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women. The tape has proved to be a bombshell and Republican supporters of his campaign have been dropping like flies. Many high-ranking GOPers have revoked their endorsements and still more are calling for him to step down as the party’s nominee.
Among Trump’s vulgar comments that were caught on a hot mic were such nauseating gems as the following.
“I’ve gotta use some tic tacs, just in case I start kissing her [Arienne Zucker, the actress waiting to meet them as they get off the bus],” Trump says.“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”
“And when you’re a star they let you do it,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”
“Whatever you want,” says another voice.
“Grab them by the p—y,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”
What Trump is boasting about is sexual assault. Period. With comments such as this, it is not hard to see why parents are being warned about allowing their young children to watch Sunday’s debate.
This is what we have devolved to folks. A presidential debate is going to feature discussions of sexual violence so vile that kids can’t be in the f*cking room. Congratulations America, we have reached a brand new low.
