Trumped-Up Outrage

The Left condemns the GOP candidate even as it celebrates crudity and sexual exhibitionism throughout the culture.

Democrats and their media allies, joined by many Republicans, are calling on Donald Trump to withdraw from the presidential race after a newly released, decade-old tape of a frat-house-level conversation between Trump and television host Billy Bush in 2005, in which Trump boasted of his heavy-handed pursuit of females. Trump describes trying unsuccessfully to seduce a married woman by taking her furniture shopping, speaking in the crudest terms. He brags that because he was a star he could “grab [females] by the pussy” and claims to Bush that he starts kissing beautiful women “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 eggs him on: “Whatever you want!” (Bush being a more admiring confidante than Leporello to Don Giovanni).

The response has been swift and apocalyptic.

    What’s more crude, a statement made 11 years ago, or the yearly prance festival at the Toronto gay pride parade? When Trump walks around with his wang hanging out I’ll be sure to condemn him then.

      Your average rap song contains more misogynistic lyrics, and those “artists” get invited to the White House by BO.

    Trump has done what no other Republican candidate has ever been able to do: get Democrats to care about morals.

      To bad it’s only faux concern though.

    Too many are still too comfortable or complacent to understand what a transition to living in a favela would be like. By the time they figure it out, it’ll be too late.

    Saddest of all is the fact that these two are supposedly the best of the best. What a sad reflection on a once great nation that they have to choose between a sexist and a liar for their elected leader.
