This story is evolving. Women are coming forth with their stories of encounters with Donald in which they were the objects of unsolicited and unwanted sexual aggression, and he was the agent.
Donald Trump has been a deeply flawed candidate from the beginning. He is a power-mad, thin-skinned bully at every level of interaction in society. Stories that have come to the fore in the wake of the videotape Friday night assert that his “locker room talk” was more than talk.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign released this statement not long ago.
HFA Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri offered the following statement in response to the new allegations about Donald Trump’s actions:
“This disturbing story sadly fits everything we know about the way Donald Trump has treated women. These reports suggest that he lied on the debate stage and that the disgusting behavior he bragged about in the tape are more than just words.”
Perhaps this is Donald Trump’s actual contribution to society. If enough decent men turn against the tawdry, dissolute, perverted “model” he represents for young men in this country, maybe he will have performed a service – his first ever – for the nation and society at large.
He should never be president. His behavior disqualifies him. His cavalier attitude toward violating women’s privacy and personal boundaries fall far below the bar. He is, on so many levels, a horrendous choice for the position and the job. He lies. He invents fiction about his opponent (which his supporters believe even though none of it is true or validated). His business practices are predatory and dishonest. He knows nothing and does not seek to learn. He holds dangerous positions regarding foreign policy. I could go on. I will not. his attitude toward women is sufficient.
Vote. I will not tell you how to vote, but you should know on which side your bread is buttered.
