Donald is Finally in Real Trouble: Women Refuse to Accept Sexual Harassment and Sexually Debasing Talk

2016-10-09

The New York Times assesses Hillary’s chances of winning the presidential election at 83%.  The reason: the 2005 “hot mike” recording of Donald’s lewd and misogynistic comments about groping and “moving” on women who could not resist his advances because of his wealth.  Republican Congressmen and women as well as governors are abandoning his candidacy in larger and larger numbers; here is a quote from a NYT story about the fallout from release of the recording:

But it was not until a pair of conservative women, Representatives Barbara Comstock of Virginia and Martha Roby of Alabama, implored Mr. Trump to withdraw that previously hesitant Republicans stepped forward to reject Mr. Trump’s candidacy.

Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire was the first Republican senator facing a competitive re-election to say she would no longer back Mr. Trump, announcing in a statement that she would write in Mr. Pence for president instead.

Note that it is conservative Republican women who are leading the defections from Donald’s camp.  The situation in American politics has changed drastically since the days in 1999 that Republicans could impeach a Democratic president for his very private sexual behavior, and the president could easily survive the assault.  In less than twenty years, women have turned the corner and are reaching for their rightful place as the 51% majority of the people.  No longer is it possible for men to treat women with this kind of domination, to use an anodyne word for sexual harassment and debasement, and expect to be elected to political office.

It does not matter now that this recording was made eleven years ago.  A man can NEVER live down this kind of talk, no matter how long he lives.  Women have finally dug in their heels and said no, loudly and repeatedly.

According to sources with inside knowledge, there are recordings of Donald saying worse things: if you’re a masochist, you can read about it on complex.com.
