News Flash: Donald Trump Is a Lecherous Creep

Posted by V the K at 2:43 pm - October 8, 2016.
Filed under: Democrats & Double Standards

Donald Trump, 11 years ago, was caught on a hot mic making crude and vulgar comments about a married woman he wanted to bang.

It’s too bad he’s not married to Hillary Clinton; because if he were, she would totally be defending him. And so would all the other Democrats.

BTW: How many Democrats feigning outrage over what Donald Trump said consider Ted Kennedy a progressive hero?

  2. I’m so old I remember when actually grabbing someone by the crotch was hilarious and endearing a la Crocodile Dundee.

  3. is the Washington post practicing the “politics of personal destruction?”

  4. This is a wonderful opportunity for all the self-righteous phonies who weren’t going to support Trump anyway, to circle & let it be known that they’re so much better than the Nominee. Did they don their Hillary campaign pins yet? It doesn’t matter which politicians in the GOP support Trump or not. Their vote & faux support doesn’t actually count. I think we all know what “alpha males” sound like, what they do & why. It’s not a mystery & putting a hand up to their mouths in mock surprise & disgust is cheap theater. The only thing they’re doing is giving the Lib voters on the Left something with which to titter about as they tweet their “oh snaps” (at Trump’s wife being offended) FORGETTING that there was a Wikileaks dump of excerpts today.

    Hillary’s says quite a bit that the Libs won’t be liking, when they finally get around to reading. Bernie’s commie minions will really, really not like the revelations.

    The ONLY person I feel (sort of) sorry for is Billy Bush. I sort of like the goober, even though he’s related to the Bush presidentials.

  5. This is a wonderful opportunity for all the self-righteous phonies who weren’t going to support Trump anyway, to circle & let it be known that they’re so much better than the Nominee.

    Precisely. This whole kerfuffle reminds me of the famous line from Casablanca about the persons in charge being shocked—shocked, I say! that gambling is occurring in the bar. The only people who are upset are the ghey boyz from Media Matters and their ilk who otherwise think that the creative uses for a cigar practiced by Bill Clinton was kind of cool and the #NeverTrump(ers), who are happy to bring out the latest chorus of “We told you so!” Add to that is the latest murmurings from handsy Slow Joe who felt the need to come out with a condemnation on a Saturday, presumably so that his next occurrence of public or semi-public groping won’t continue to seem out of place.

    Meanwhile, all the Trump supporters I’ve seen online are nonplussed by the revelations and continue to insist that it’s all a sideshow designed to detract attention from #CrookedHillary and her web of deceit and her rapey husband. Though not a passenger on the Trump Train, I can’t say that I disagree with them.

  6. The Republican pearl-clutchers are worse than the Democrats. I figured they’d collude to steal the election from him if he won, but now it’s clear they won’t even permit him to get to election day. Shameful. Everyone’s jumping on the QUIT bandwagon. They knew he had a real shot at it. They are simply not going to allow it to happen. He must be punished and made an example of. The people who support him must be taught a lesson, too.

    Comment by JuJuBee — October 8, 2016 @ 5:01 pm - October 8, 2016

  7. I recognize this revelation for what it is:
    A phony issue put out there for the news cycle to have something negative to report about Trump to see if it sticks.

    This information doesn’t make me think any less of Trump,but it does illustrate to me how petty and low those who put this out there are.

    All I can say is that worse things have been done by better men and that you without sin cast the first stone.

  8. Who knew that millions upon millions of Fifty Shades of Grey fan bot liberals (primarily females) who spent hundreds of millions of dollars entertaining themselves on sadomasochistic words and visuals would faint from hysteria due to Trump being momentarily all Fifty Shades of Grey.

    I am voting for Trump because Hillary is a hideous criminal-I do not like Trump-however this hysterical hypocrisy is now making me want to vote for Trump.

  9. Trump is sending the GOP to the bottom of the ocean. When he loses next month, we will have no one to blame but the white trash that are enamored of his outrageousness and lack of couthe.

  10. Win or lose, the GOP as we knew it is gone. And that is a good, good thing. Those inside-the-beltway turncoats have gotten their last vote from me.

    Comment by Southern Man — October 8, 2016 @ 8:15 pm - October 8, 2016

  11. I recall Clinton crony Vernon Jordan telling someone that he and Bill talked about “pussy” while golfing (and I don’t think they were discussing the latest issue of Cat Fancy).

    Trump’s a boor – nothing new to report here. What has me wound up is the reaction from Paul Ryan, Jeb!, et al.

    Over the last eight years, we’ve seen Obamacare modified on the fly by executive order; the IRS on political kill missions; amnesty be executive order; unauthorized wars in the ME and the resulting invasion of Europe; HRC selling State Dept. favors, etc, etc, etc. and the GOP can manage, at best, a few hearings and a whimper.

    But let an 11-yo recording of Trump talking, well, like Trump and these morons find their outrage. One reason the GOP is so useless is because of their penchant for circular firing squads. They cannot wait to toss each other under the next outrage bus.

    If the GOP dumps Trump and replaces his with some squish, I pledge to vote a straight Democrat ticket next month. Burn it down.

    Comment by KCRob — October 8, 2016 @ 8:33 pm - October 8, 2016

  12. @9 the reason the republican party is going to the bottom of the ocean has nothing to do with trump. it has to do the entire establishment republican party lying about their support for the policies of the democrat party. for almost thirty years, since bush I, the conservative voter has not had an alternative to the democrat party. all they have had is a party that lied to them during election season that they the republicans were opposed to the democrat party plan to turn this country into a dictatorship. all that fell apart with the Boehner, mc Connell, ryan betrayal of their promise to repeal Obamacare. the conservative dupes finally woke up, their betrayal was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. for the last thirty years the only time a republican was a conservative was during election season.

  13. I was planning on not voting for President at all, or having a throw-away write-in candidate if I can. (I’d vote for other offices.)

    The “main stream media” and their hysteria over all this has driven me to decide to vote for Trump out of pique at the continual excusing everything that their saint, Hillary, does and looking for anything in the personal destruction line going back ages for Trump. If liberals/progressives hate him that much, there must be some merit in him.

  15. Excellent comments by KCRob at 8:33 and salg at 8:54. I’ve seen some reports that the release of this recording came from sources in the establishment GOP and not from anyone on the left. The way things have been going this year, that wouldn’t surprise me.

    In July, I read this excellent piece by Austin Bay which aptly describes the current political geography:

    NeverTrumpLand’s childish Sore Losers don’t thwart the ambitions of America’s all-too-real Captain Crook—Hillary Clinton—and her privileged Clinton Foundation cronies. Quite the opposite. In GetRealLand Sore Losers become Crooked Hillary’s political tools.

    If Sore Losers tell themselves otherwise, in Washington Post op-eds, or over a glass of crisp Chablis, or in George Will’s demonstrably principled bunker—they’re waging War On Honesty.

    Comment by Juan — October 9, 2016 @ 3:20 am - October 9, 2016

  18. I’m a conservative white woman and frankly I don’t care what Trump said however many years ago. Has no one else heard the coarsening of the language over these past years? Swear words and n-words and all other kinds of words are sung all the time to top-selling songs. Movies are filled with this type of language. Books–including those supposedly marketed to young adults–have such language because it’s “realistic.” So if it’s all so true to life, why should I care when their argument is proven correct. I fought the language battle a long time ago and lost.

    Comment by Louise B — October 9, 2016 @ 6:46 am - October 9, 2016

  19. What he said was inappropriate. However, we’re not talking dozens of federal felonies here. Those “conservatives” who are getting more worked up about 11-year-old comments than about Hillary’s lawlessness have rather interesting priorities.

    I’ve said my piece on why I think Trump got so damn popular, so I’m not going to repeat it. But davinci38’s comment about “white trash” reveals the elitist bent within #NeverTrump that is going to ruin whatever support they had among the common people. The nastiness from rich conservatives directed towards low-income whites voting for Trump is on the level with the nastiness that liberals lob at gays, blacks, and women who vote Republican. They are equal and opposite numbers, and the country needs fewer of both groups.

    Comment by Sean L — October 9, 2016 @ 9:38 am - October 9, 2016

  20. Little Timmy Kaine ran straight home from kindergarten and told his mommy the three dirty words he learned that day and then angelically proclaimed that you should not use those words in polite society.

    It’s just, I mean, it makes me sick to my stomach. I don’t like to even say the words he’s used in the past when he calls women pigs, dogs, slobs. I didn’t like saying that on stage the other night with my mom and my wife sitting in the front row. But, this is behavior that’s just outrageous and so that there would be a new story that would have more statements like this of this king, I mean, gosh I’m sad to say that I’m not surprised. I should be, I should be surprised and shocked. I’m sad to say that I’m not.

    The Wa Po and NBC released this tape. In going after James O’Keefe the WaPo declared secret recording to be bad, unethical, unprincipled, blah, blah, blah. So, O’Keefe tweets:

    Washington Post who says secret recordings are bad, unethical, unprincipled are happy to release an illegal recording. Trump did not consent

    Secret recordings are fair game now, anywhere, anytime. Remember to hold the media accountable to their rules: offensive words are enough.

    Did the Was post release its recording impulsively? No, it was strategic, to do maximum damage. lemme play by their rules and time this…

    Truth is always worth exposing even if the media is corrupt and the probably outcome for your preferred candidate is failure.

    Our big release is planned next week. Smaller releases throughout the country, video behind close doors, will likely start this week.

    I can’t wait to taste your tears after our October surprise video drops. People will be fired. Your head will explode. Sweet justice.

    Wrong. We have tape of them demeaning and disparaging black people in the worst ways. That will matter. Coming in October.

    The DemonizingRats have been setting Trump up for this Billy Bush tape. That is why Hillary went after The Donald in the first debate:

    And one of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest. He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them. And he called this woman “Miss Piggy.” Then he called her “Miss Housekeeping,” because she was Latina. Donald, she has a name.

    They have more. They will begin to release it to keep the narrative going. It is what they do. They are the best at it. Hypocrisy is for losers in their morality. Everything is relative and winning the war by any means available is how they roll.

    Trump can not clean up this poo fight to the “satisfaction” of the “cultural elite” who are damning him to Hell and back. Forget, Jack, Bobby, Teddy, Lyndon, Slick Willie or every Hollywood A-lister or John Edwards or Jessie Jackson and their love babies or the role of couch casting in media. Forget Megyn Kelly dressing like a cocktail hostess on the make or how Roger Ailes treated his women or the Wolf of Wall Street or Bonfire of the Vanities or The Devil’s Advocate …… you can not survive as an enemy of the DemonizingRats without being immersed up to your eyebrows in sh•t. And pay attention to the uniparty rats abandoning the ship.

  21. Sean L.

    I don’t consider myself elitist. But Trump is not qualified to be President. His lack of preparation for the first debate illustrates he doesn’t have a clue as to the importance of that job. Does he go into business deals with no prep? Probably not. Then why is this guy flying off the cuff all the time?

    Comment by davinci38 — October 9, 2016 @ 10:45 am - October 9, 2016

  22. @20: Helio – my memory isn’t what it used to be but didn’t Hillary once ask who would clean our hotel rooms if low-skill immigration were reduced?

    So they’re all Miss Housekeeping to her.

  24. I think Trump is a dirtbag.

    I think Hillary is a criminal.

    It’s amazing how words spoken 11 years ago get coverage but Hillary’s actual crimes are covered up by the FBI/Justice department and the media thinks words from Trump are what’s newsworthy.

    Kind of hard to even justify the lack of Hillary coverage based on it being a “long time ago” since 2005 is much longer ago than 2010-2014.

  25. Trump is sending the GOP to the bottom of the ocean. When he loses next month, we will have no one to blame but the white trash that are enamored of his outrageousness and lack of couthe.

    In a recent The New Yorker piece, author Larissa McFarqhar commented on how West Virginia used to be heavily Democrat and has become the most pro-Trump state in the union….

    “… the Appalachian Trump voter—ignorant, racist, appalled by the idea of a female President or a black President, suspicious and frightened of immigrants and Muslims, with a threatened job or no job at all, addicted to OxyContin.”

    Hillary called us “deplorables” and “unredeemable.” For those who don’t do religion, “unredeemable” is the pronouncement that we are going to Hell. Nothing we can do, whatsoever, will get us through the Pearly Gates. We can not hope for redemption.

    Now, frankly, when Hillary damns me to Hell, I don’t take much notice other than to worry about the possibility of meeting her there because I failed to make cut for Heaven.

    By the way, couth denotes being cultured, refined, sophisticated and well mannered. I have no clue what “couthe” means. What I do know is the farce of the pot calling the kettle black.

    I bet it was the BUSH family that released the tape, even though Billy Bush is in it.

    Comment by Steve — October 9, 2016 @ 12:51 pm - October 9, 2016

  28. Let me see if I understand this correctly… The people who think saying sexual things about a woman is really bad and disqualifies a person for POTUS are the same people who think lying about getting blow jobs in the Oral office from a barely legal intern is a mark of a great man.

    By today’s feminist standards, if there is such a thing, what Billy did was rape and what Hilly did was enable a rapist. So, why are feminists backing Mrs. Rapist?

    Comment by TnnsNe1 — October 9, 2016 @ 1:12 pm - October 9, 2016

  29. But history affirms that leaders’ examples either elevate or demean the lives of those being led. When choosing the ostensible leader of the free world, the American electorate requires the clear assurance that their chosen candidate will consistently put the well-being of others ahead of his or her own personal gratification. The most recent revelations of Trump’s lewdness disturb us not only because of his vulgar objectification of women, but also because they poignantly confirm Trump’s inability to self-govern.

    What oozes from this audio is evil. We hear a married man give smooth, smug and self-congratulatory permission to his intense impulses, allowing them to outweigh the most modest sense of decency, fidelity and commitment. And although it speaks volumes about sexual morality, it goes to the heart of all ethical behavior. Trump’s banter belies a willingness to use and discard other human beings at will. That characteristic is the essence of a despot.

    Nor is this an isolated incident. His reprehensible sexual speech confirms troubling reports and outrageous outbursts that have dogged his campaign from the beginning. Another example appeared earlier this week detailing Trump’s language and behavior on his reality television show, “The Apprentice.”

  33. #32, Rusty, The Deseret News is a direct funnel for the leaders of Mormon Church (LDS). It’s important to note that the Mormon leadership has colluded & supported the Democrats under Obama so much in the last 8 years that the traditionally more conservative members of their church are now questioning said leadership. In no way, can their leadership be seen as Conservative nowadays, except in various social issues, but even then they’ve compromised their position often enough to confuse even themselves (gay marriage, baking gay marriage cakes, abortion, etc.) The “ultra” conservatives Lee & Chaffetz are notorious sheep who have also compromised their “conservative purity” this past year, not given their full support for the Nominee & otherwise. One does not quote or link propaganda from Church Lady prudes when judging so-called Alpha Males.

    The Reality is; the ratio of those that use massive, every 10 minute vulgarities to those who don’t or use moderate curses is higher among the top tier in our nation. Especially among the very wealthy & the political elite. Yes, & that includes Chaffetz & Lee. Who would probably modify their vulgarities by using “dang”, “heck” & “crap”. Instead of the more colorful & accurate language that is de rigueur in DC.

    Most of the time, candid interactions are private. Trump also has his private interactions, is a man who enjoys vulgar jocularity & I’m sure there must be loads of off mic crassness. None of which disqualify him as a good person, fit for office or of good intentions.

    Anyone, that is offended by his remarks, needs to just sit back & learn. Vulgarities, among said top tier people, are the least of what is shocking on any given spectrum by those in this country who have unlimited cash &/or make the decisions that affect our lives.

  34. Never forget that Progressives are totally amoral people. They scoff at the concept of the human soul. However, they all have some extra chromosome which informs them individually concerning “right” vs. “wrong” depending on the situation at the moment when they have to come up with a handy ethical principle or a useful application of their personal morality in order to justify whatever they did or didn’t do. Then its back to being amoral and just doing whatever benefits them most for the moment.

    Rusty serves only one purpose and that is to cut and paste something which he believes serves as the momentary counter argument. He has nothing personally vested in anything as he subscribes to no guiding principles.

    Juan Williams was on the Chris Wallace Sunday show and he reported with his bare face hanging out that he has been in a lot of locker rooms and heard potty mouth stuff but he has never heard the type of sexual predator stuff that Trump said when he spoke of snatching at a female crotch. Really? Well, ride a high school school bus. Go see a movie. Pal around with a Kennedy. Chat with Jack Nicholson. Sit is a small barber shop. Sit at the local tavern on Friday after work. Chat with about any horn dog expressing his hormones. I am delighted that Juan has such a sanitary life. But, he must be constantly blind sided by rare acts of crudeness which shock his socks off.

  37. rusty – let me point out the hypocrisy: Insert the usual Bill Clinton references here – the list is well-known.

    Look up the term “waitress sandwich”, remembering that one of the characters has been canonized by the left as a moral paragon.

    Remember back not so long ago when lefties were excusing Roman Polanski’s long-ago rape of a drugged 13-yo girl. Whoopi Goldberg minimized the crime because it “wasn’t rape-rape”.

    Back in the 90s, the left told us over and over that it was “just sex”.

    In other words, if Trump’s bawdy comments and moves on a woman not his wife were wrong (and they are) then these actions are wrong regardless of political leanings. His sins are of a lesser magnitude than many of the sins forgiven by the left.

    So please forgive me if I find that the left’s (and the elites in general) sudden discovery of virtue to be a load of manure. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) once declared that while she thought Bill Clinton was a great leader, she wouldn’t want him around her daughter.

    In other words, Claire thinks Bill (and countless others) are fine examples of leadership – as long as there’s a chaperon present.

  40. On top of all the excellect comments about, there is one other thing to keep in mind — Trump has the *audacity* to speak the truth that a very high percentage of modern women are tramps/sluts (*).

    (*) Tramps/sluts are lower on the moral scale than are whores, for whores at least have the self-respect to get *something* of value for their easy virtue.

  44. this audio tape was aired on the same day as a Hillary e-mail in which she told donors that a politician must have two stances on the same position, a public stance and a private stance. in essence one to hoodwink the public and one to inform the donors of what they really will do. this monumentally corrupt idea from a politician drew no criticism from anyone in the democrat party-media complex, from anyone in the republican party, from anyone in the democrat party or from rusty and craycray either.

  47. @ V the K: C.S. Lewis once wrote about how while he was in school, it was common practice for upperclassmen to “claim” and groom an underclassman for purposes of sexual release. This was something of an open secret, but somebody was more likely to get grief for having a sloppily-done Oxford tie than for molesting a fellow student.

    Long story short, his point was that if you stay silent on major misdeeds and instead choose to cry foul over minor infractions, you’re less concerned with what is morally right than what is socially acceptable, more interested in being socially liked than morally upright.

    I think Trump is going to be the end of the Republican Party as we know it, one way or another. And if the leadership is going to get more worked up about Donald Trump’s decade-old lewd statements than Hillary Clinton’s decades of corruption and criminal activity, than it should end.

  48. So if the Republican Party ends, would there be a chance for another more appropriate party to replace it like a libertarian or some other conservative, small govt party? Is the Republican Party going out like the Whig party?

  49. Sean-TRUMP has as much contempt for the Cuckservatives who want to loot the US as he does for the same people on the left. He destroyed the GOPe who made clear to everyone their contempt for large portions of their party.

  50. Democrats pretty much gave up on religion, but they do tend to worship their successful politicians as gods. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Obama. They consider it blasphemy for any mere mortal to challenge their god. Now it’s Hillary’s turn, she of the tireless decades-long effort to improve humanity’s lot, to be elevated from sainthood to a full-fledged deity.

  51. Donald never left a woman to drown in his car while he and his flunkies plotted the PR strategy to downplay the incident.

  52. Is it ever “just” words? What can be achieved by words? What is the damage that can be done by “just” words? I read an interview the other day, before “it’s just words” became an excuse, at The Atlantic with director Ava DuVernay. Her new documentary 13th premiered on Netflix last week. It explores the connection between slavery and mass incarceration but, as the writer, Juleyka Lantigua-Williams, observers, “it’s also a gorgeous, evocative, and maddening exploration of words: of their power, their roots, their permanence. It’s about those who wield those words and those made to kneel by them.” During the discussion, Ava and Juleyka talk about how ideas are labelled, who gets to label them, and how the act of labelling becomes control, because those labels are often used in service of oppression and inequality. Words on a piece of paper can become an instrument of institutionalised subjugation. Words in a locker room can become weapons in the bedroom.
