The Washington Post released a 2005 recording in which Trump was utterly demeaning women. This release threw the whole Republican Party into confusion. The recording was leaked two days before the second crucial presidential debate to take place at the Washington University in St. Louis.
The Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel of Kentucky on hearing the details of the recording said, “These comments are repugnant, and unacceptable in any circumstance.” He also went further to say Trump’s “utter lack of respect for women is shown in his comments on that tape.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan followed suit and said, “I am sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests.”
Trump should have spent Saturday preparing for the debates with top advisers, including Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus but unfortunately he also left the Trump train. Priebus said, “No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever.”
When it seemed like the world was crashing down on Donald Trump, he came out boldly to apologize for his lewd comments in which he boasts about groping women. However he dismissed the leaked 2005 recording of his remarks, tagging them as a distraction.
The Trump campaign released a videotape on his Facebook page. In the tape Trump tried to minimize the significance of his demeaning remarks which include him saying he could grab women by their pussy and that they would let him do it because he is a “star.”
He said, “Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize.”
