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.
Jason Chaffetz is the chairman of the House Oversight Committee and has withdrawn his support for Trump. He is joined by droves of other Republicans who are racing to pull their endorsements also.

Chaffetz: “I’m out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine […] He’s put the party and this country in an awful place … I get the sense this probably isn’t the end of them. There might be more.”
Via TheHill: “I do wish that Mike Pence was at the top of the ticket. I really do,” Chaffetz told CNN’s Don Lemon. “He is a person of good moral fiber.”
Chaffetz said an endorsement of Trump would have been impossible to explain to his 15-year-old daughter.
“To use a baseball metaphor I got to call balls and strikes the way I see them. My wife Julie and I, we have a 15-year-old daughter. You think I can look her in the eye and tell her that I endorsed Donald Trump for president when he acts like this.”
