Trump has an extremely shady history with women. His first wife Ivana under oath said that Trump raped her in their divorce papers, in a 1997 lawsuit a makeup artist alleges that Trump groped her, there’s other women that say Trump tried to rape them. So, it was completely disgusting but not entirely surprising when the Washington Post released audio Friday from 2005 where Trump can be heard bragging about having sex with married women, groping women, and how women let him do anything he wants because he’s famous. That video is at the bottom of this article if you haven’t seen it yet.
Mike Pence will NOT be showing up in Wisconsin today. His campaign has just confirmed. We are trying to get a comment from his campaign on if he will be dropping out as Trump’s running mate.
Reports are that he was “beside himself” when he heard the audio, and that his wife was “furious”.

Via TwinCities: WAUKESHA, Wis. — Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence has postponed a Wisconsin rally because it’s the day before Donald Trump will be in the same city.
Pence spokesman Marc Lotter said Monday that since Trump will be in the same city the next day, “we are adjusting the schedule.” Lotter says that Pence will be back to Wisconsin.
That is the OFFICIAL excuse from the newspaper & Fox News. Trump has just confirmed HE is not dropping out. No word from Pence.
Meanwhile, top Republicans held an emergency meeting to plan for the contingency of Trump dropping out, which is now more likely than ever.
Simultaneously, Trump was set to appear in Wisconsin with the top Republican in the country, Speaker Paul Ryan. Ryan released a statement uninviting Trump, who will no longer be attending, Mike Pence – Trump’s VP Pick, was supposed to attend. He no longer will.
