Trump in big trouble


Recommended Posts

Trump has been caught on video to admitting to have committed a sexual crime. That is attempted rape. And with the Debate tomorrow, what will Trump do?

 

 

 

At the Masters, they call Saturdays "Moving Day."

 

And that's where we are on the presidential political front today. Donald Trump finds himself in a repulsive rhetorical situation, thanks to a leaked tape during a taping with Billy Bush, then of Access Hollywood (NBC Universal). Even he won't be able to escape or brush it off simply as political correctness run amok. And he’s faced with two choices:

  • Moving on out of the race, as some Republicans are calling for, for his "grab them by the (women's genitalia)" comment that makes Mitt Romney's caught-on-tape "47 percent" comment leaked merely sound like a sneeze.
  • Defend the indefensible Sunday night at the second presidential debate in St. Louis in front of 80-90 million people watching at home.

Throughout Friday night, calls for Trump to step down came in fast and furious on cable news and social media.

 

Rep. Mike Lee (R- Utah) even did so on Facebook Live, a first for any politician making that kind of demand. By doing so, Lee got his message out without taking questions.

 

GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, also of Utah and never one to be shy with the press, actually announced his withdrawal of support for Trump on a local Salt Lake City affiliate (Fox-13) before calling into CNN to do so nationally in an interview with Don Lemon.

 

Will a major player like Speaker Paul Ryan (who said he was "sickened" by the video) or Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell follow Lee in asking Trump to drop out? How about RNC chair Reince Priebus?

 

If so, count on those declarations to not be done the old-fashioned way of a press conference, but rather via another taped video or more likely, a simple tweet. It's that easy (and pain-free) when it comes to messaging in 2016.

 

On Friday's "CNN Tonight" with the aforementioned Don Lemon, Republican Ana Navarro, a Jeb Bush supporter, said Trump was not only unfit to be president, but even "unfit to be a man." Navarro also repeatedly used the “p-word” on the air in quoting Trump during a heated panel segment, another first in cable news history from a what's-allowed-to-be-said perspective.

 

On Fox News and "The O'Reilly Factor", Geraldo Rivera called the comments "obscene" and pronounced Trump's campaign "on life support."

 

On MSNBC, Rachel Maddow pushed her own company in NBC to release tapes of Trump allegedly disparaging women on "The Apprentice."

 

In a related story, it can be argued that a Bush (OK, NBC's Billy Bush, who is likely updating his LinkedIn page as you read this for his cheerleader role in the Trump conversation) finally took down a Trump.

 

As for not facing the press, the same strategy was carried out by Trump himself, who taped a defiant apology at Trump Tower that took responsibility for the remarks before pivoting to a comparison to Bill Clinton's alleged actions regarding his mistreatment of women years ago.

 

Of course, Trump's words were obviously written for him and therefore devoid of his usual authenticity in the process, because it's fairly easy to tell the difference between spontaneous Trump and TelePrompTer Trump.

 

Still, by taping the video, Trump didn't need to take questions. He will have to at some point, however, likely starting Sunday night from an audience and two moderators (ABC's Martha Raddatz and CNN's Anderson Cooper) in St. Louis.

 

In yet another related story, it's been well over 100 days since Trump held a press conference, a criticism once reserved for Hillary Clinton.

 

In assessing this situation, one has to wonder this: Just how long was the Trump "grab them by the ‘p’" tape in the hands of someone looking to destroy Trump? It is 11 years old, after all. Only someone at NBC/Access Hollywood would have access to it.

 

Considering the timing, it's hard to believe that someone had a sudden epiphany that the audio existed just days before a crucial debate and 32 days until the election when it published by the Washington Post. Just like it's also hard to believe Donald Trump's 1995 tax documents were suddenly found in a New York Times reporter's mailbox just days before the Vice Presidential debate last week.

 

October surprises may be surprising to the public, but rarely is damaging information that happens to be discovered in the same month. Discovery of opposition material and release of information through the media are two very different things.

 

Today will be arguably the most compelling Saturday politically in the history of political Saturdays — on cable news and social media. What would normally be a quiet day of travel for many media members heading to St. Louis for the debate will instead be filled with reporting, commentary and analysis all day and evening.

 

If Friday night is any indication, the pressure on Trump to drop out will undoubtedly be raised to an 11 (on a scale of 1 to 10).

 

Those hired this year by CNN to defend Trump in an effort to create balance (Corey Lewandowski, Kayleigh McEnany, Jeffrey Lord, Scottie Nell Hughes) should all ask for a raise before going in today. Because attempting to defend or even deflect Trump's grabbing comments will be the toughest job in the world.

 

Moving day, Saturday, is here.

 

It may prove to be the most riveting, drama-filled day in the history of 21st Century media.

Popcorn is popped. And those covering this story just got another weekend completely devoid of sleep.

Robert DiNiro has a message for you.

Gee … wasn’t De Niro the Hollywood actor who actually lobbied Congress not to impeach Clinton back in the 90s?

 

Why yes, he was.

 

Seems he didn’t think that anything Bill or Hillary Clinton did was wrong.

 

EVER.

 

What a sanctimonious hypocrite.

 

He’s a Clinton stooge of the worst kind ...

… who doesn’t give a damn what crimes they committed.

 

He just likes to be in the inner circle.

 

And how about De Niro's own history … his treatment of women?

 

He’s quite the womanizer.

 

He dated them by the scores.

 

Back in 1982 when he was married to Diahnne Abbott, he even cheated on her with Helena Springs.

 

Guess he and Bill were sympatico.

 

Abbott ended up divorcing him. Then he got Springs pregnant TWICE. The first time she aborted without telling him. But the second time, she told him because she wanted to keep the baby. She said what followed were a series of ugly and intimidating conversations and encounters aimed at getting her to abort the pregnancy. “It was mental abuse”, Springs said. Oh yeah, De Niro can be the charmer ... when he want to.

 

Wonder where De Niro stuck his?

The newly married Trump reminisces about making a pass at a married woman. “I moved on her and I failed, I’ll admit it … I did try and fuck her. She was married.” The Republican nominee goes on to describe his efforts at seduction by saying: “I moved on her like a bitch but I couldn’t get there and she was married …

 

“I am automatically attracted to beautiful women. 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. You can do anything.”

 

Bush banters with Trump and eggs him on before the businessman says: “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

The comments, made on live microphone, were revealed by the Washington Post on Friday.

 

Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate for president, “This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.”

 

 

 

Just the kind of guy to bring home for a conservative dinner, him trying to fuck their wives and molest their children.

THE CHILD MOLESTING ENABLER STILL DOESN'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT TRUMP.

Shocking!

 

Are you really surprised?
