Yes, Donald Trump, You Said That

By Billy Bush, The New York Times

04 December 17

 

e said it. “Grab ’em by the pussy.”

Of course he said it. And we laughed along, without a single doubt that this was hypothetical hot air from America’s highest-rated bloviator. Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass standup act. He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real.

We now know better.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

He said it. He did it. No wonder he's backing Moore. And shame on them that allow this scum to rise to the top.

Yeah, the Alpha males have been grabbing 'em by the pussy for a long time.

But the rest of the beta boys are starting to 'man up'!

Why did Donald tell his wife that he was only joking. She went on TV and said she understood that it was all "bad boy' locker room type of talk. If he had to explain to her, then why did he not just say that the voice on the tape was not his at the time. I think that he believes he can just say anything and deny it and he will be believed. Bobby Bush has him pegged.

I cannot understand why Donald Trump is sitting in the White House. Is the American voter really this stupid? The sooner we can have the "liar in chief" impeached, we can breathe again. I have been holding my breath since the election because our nation has a real disaster in the making and it will not be pretty. Wake up Congress!

Proceed cautiously, and remember, Mike Pence and Paul Ryan are waiting in the wings!

The Congressional wake up call will be heard in the 2018 election, when the masses of people who have been disgusted by Donald Trump's oafish behavior and have been ripped off by the new Republican tax law will rise up in righteous indignation and vote the rascals out. Any Republicans that can't see by now that they are on the wrong side of a well demarcated ethical line are pretty hopeless candidates for reform.

It will be the task of the Democratic Party to offer the voting public clear alternatives to the Trump-adhering Republicans who have defended and promoted this continuing series of aesthetic, ethical, and financial outrages.

...she (Melania Trump} understood that it was all "bad boy' locker room type of talk."

The last time I heard comments comparable to those made by Donald Trump on the Access Hollywood tape I was in the 7th grade, which should indicate to Mrs. Trump the level of maturity her husband has achieved.

The Republican voter is really this--something . Trump understands this. They will vote party line. It is about god, patriarchy, the flag, their own miserable existence that can't possibly be their own fault, but has to be blamed on someone else: the immigrant, the liberal, the north, the Dems, the Black President, or someone. Politicians can do anything to anybody, but as long as they have an (R) after their name on the ballot, they will get the vote. It doesn't matter what they do or say. Shoot someone on the streets of Manhattan? They'll still vote for me, Trump says. Sadly, he's right. No amount of reason, logic, truth, morality will change those denying their own guilt and complicity. The GOP party absolves them of responsibility for their and their neighbors troubles by giving them scape goats.

Of course, he did it and he has bragged about doing it. Arrogant scum brag about their "great" accomplishments . America, where are you? Who are you? Who defines you?

I always thought Bush was creepy on this tape, the bully's simpering sidekick. What clinched it was when they emerged from the bus to meet the young woman and Bush said to Trump, 'Why don't you give her a hug?'

Yuk. The abusers get away with their behavior partly because of people like this.

And how might it have changed things if those seven laughing guys in the trailer instead got quiet and said, 'Not cool, DT. Not cool.'?
