A devastating secret recording of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been dropped on his campaign like a bomb, in what many are calling the worst “October Surprise” in all of presidential election history. The audio, which was taken during a private conversation between Trump and TV personality Bill Bush, is Trump describing how he attempts to have sex with married women. He described the lengths with which he would go to, including “grabbing them by the pu**y.” The public has been shocked by this revelation, and naturally the Trump campaign is attempting to spin the latest and greatest embarrassment by their candidate as if he did nothing wrong at all.
Trump issued a tacit “apology”, where Trump didn’t actually apologize to anyone for his comments, but merely apologized if they were offended. Apologizing for offending someone is not the same as a genuine apology. Trump’s statement said:
This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.
It should come as no surprise that Trump attempted to shift the blame of his own words to former President Bill Clinton, and it shows just how lowly of a man he is. Trump is a man unwilling to accept responsibility for any of his actions, which is not the behavhior befitting a man who is seeking the most powerful office in the known world. The American people deserve a person of character far greater than Donald Trump and through his words and actions he has proved that fact.
