Trump Brags About Sexually Assault

Try as he might, Donald Trump can’t gloss over his decades-long record of sexually harassing and assaulting women — especially as he continues to attack the appearance and character of the courageous women who have over the last week publicly alleged Trump practices what he preaches when it comes to sexually assaulting and harassing women.

“Uh, I can’t say that,” Trump said in 1993, when asked if he treats women with respect. A surprising moment of candor from the serial liar that the Republican Party selected as its presidential nominee.

But then again, as America (re)learned two weeks ago, Donald Trump is happy to share his enthusiasm for and history of harassing, demeaning, and abusing women: “[W]hen you’re a star, they let you do it…You can do anything,” Trump bragged in 2005, adding, “Grab them by the p—y.”

Trump is an abusive bully who brags about sexually assaulting women, thinks a working woman […]

To Trump, Women Are Objects Used For Entertainment and Housework

As far as Donald Trump is concerned women are objects that exist purely to stroke his ego, entertain him, and take care of household chores and children. That has been abundantly clear throughout his entire life, let alone his presidential campaign. The release of the 2005 tape where he clearly speaks about sexually assaulting women confirms what voters have recognized in his rhetoric from the beginning: a man full of deep-seated misogyny and a total lack of respect for women as human beings. Trump has a long history of predatory behavior and this is one more example.

Trump and his campaign are doing their best to gaslight American women and rewrite recorded history, but it isn’t working. This morning, Donald Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani tried to make it seem like the grotesque conversation was a one-time incident. It is abundantly clear that is false. There are extensive reports of Trump sexually […]

Joe Heck, It’s Too Little, Too Late.

Joe Heck’s decision to abandon Donald Trump is way too little, way too late.

This morning Heck acknowledged he had “looked past” the comments of Donald Trump — including Trump’s body shaming of women, attacks a Gold Star family, and suggesting that veterans who suffer from PTSD aren’t mentally strong.  Heck was able to “look past” Trump’s portrayal of Mexicans as rapist and criminals, his call to ban all Muslims from the country, and his nonchalant approach to nuclear proliferation. Heck even stood by Trump as the casual racism and white nationalism of Trump’s campaign personally affected Heck’s family.

The entire time, Heck continued to stand by Trump, acknowledging that he was “completely supporting” Trump and following up with, “Why wouldn’t I?

“Only now that it’s politically convenient is Joe Heck attempting to backtrack his support of Donald Trump. It shouldn’t […]

Too Little, Too Late, Kelly Ayotte.

Senator Kelly Ayotte’s decision on Donald Trump is way too little, way too late.

Ayotte didn’t shy away from supporting the racist, sexist Republican nominee for months as Trump fat shamed women, attacked a Gold Star family, and suggested that veterans who suffer from PTSD aren’t mentally strong. All the time Ayotte continued to say she would vote for Trump, that his candidacy was “a positive thing,” even that he was “absolutely” a role model for children.

“Only now that it’s politically convenient is Senator Kelly Ayotte attempting to backtrack her support of Donald Trump. It shouldn’t have taken a tape of Trump crudely talking about women in language that is the definition of rape culture to make Ayotte reconsider her position,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler. “Ayotte is just like every other politician, she’s not voting her conscience, she’s doing what she believes is best politically, not morally. New Hampshire […]
