ADDICTING INFO

Hillary Clinton and most of her surrogates have stayed silent, apparently waiting to pounce on Donald Trump during the debate scheduled for Sunday night. The Vice President, though, couldn’t hold his opinion. He took to Twitter and said exactly what most women are thinking about Donald Trump’s disgusting remarks about “grabbing” women by the “pussy.” Joe Biden called it sexual assault.

Much of the media (and Republicans) is treating the tape, in which Trump is heard talking about groping women and kissing them, without permission, as just more words. It’s Trump as usual, they say, only raw and on steroids. The problem with that, though, is that Trump is describing criminal acts. He’s clearly in the habit of using his power and money to take anything he wants, and women to Trump are just things.

Biden has long been an advocate of women’s rights. He has been a driving force behind helping to end the backlog of unprocessed rape kits.

Biden was also key in the passage of the Violence Against Women Act in the Senate and calls it “the proudest thing I’ve ever done.” His goal is to change the culture in this country.

“When a woman is raped, when a woman is abused, the first thing other women ask is what did you do? Why were you there? What were you wearing?” Biden said. “Folks, all the opportunity and entrepreneurship in the world is good. But ultimately, starting in this country, we have to change the culture. And we’re not going to change that culture until not a single woman who is abused ever asks herself: ‘What did I do?’”

Trump supporters, of course, are doing the only thing they know how. They are playing a game of “I know you are but what am I” and are turning it around on Biden:

They even posted this completely debunked video:

Of course, Biden isn’t running for president and Trump is. It’s not just women Trump disrespects, it’s everyone. If his white male voters really think Trump is going to do something for them, they are sadly delusional. As for women, well, Trump’s choice of Mike Pence as running mate should be all we need to know. The video was just confirmation that Trump isn’t just a misogynist. He’s a criminal, at least according to his own words.

  1. I can NOT accept an apology for any act that has been knowingly and intentionally committed.
    Those kinds of “apologies” are simply “Oh Shits” for getting caught!

  2. Trump’s comments about John McCain are far worse than this comment. And I doubt he even meant it in a serious fashion…I doubt he’s ever ‘grabbed’ a women by any body part. I think sometimes small men have to make comments like this to show power to accomodate for smaller things…meaning, he’s not that attractive of a man so any woman that comes his way will probably only be interested in his money…and he may have other ‘smaller’ things attached to his body…and he’s not the first man to ever use these words, my husband talks like that all the time…people are too over sensitive to some things.

    1. Trump has settled lawsuits over his “grabbing” with women previously, so it’s pretty safe to say he has done it, likes doing it, and feels entitled to do it. He used to intentionally barge in on Miss Universe contestants in changing rooms, justifying that he had the right to “inspect” them, as co-owner of the contest. I agree with you about the comments regarding McCain, but Trump’s also a total pig in the way he views and deals with women.
