And of course this will not matter at all to his kool aid drinking supporters.


#3

I was literally queuing that gif up. You only got it up first because I was pinching the bridge of my nose in existential dispair.

That table’s taken a lot of abuse this year.


#4

It’s just banter. Turds being turds.

(Edit: just to clarify, yes, that IS sarcasm; ‘boys will be boys’ is never a valid excuse)


#5

I guess I shan’t be voting for Bill Clinton this November, then.

Don’t vote trump, but don’t kid yourself either.


#6

Ugh. I could not be a handler around banter like that.
Trump would probably notice how squicked out I am and tell the producer not to allow me near him again, which would be fine by me.

Trump continues: “And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.’”

Woah, man. Over the line!

Here’s the four second recap of that video that will totally sum of the whole thing


#9

NO. You don’t get to let anyone off the hook with the shitty excuse of “boys will be boys” because it’s 2016 and we know better than that. Don’t downplay this. Never downplay something like this.

Um, I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure @Yri was making a sarcastic remark on Trump’s own attempt to downplay it.


#12

Also another important note too for this whole story


#13

Possibly… I’d appreciate it if they came back and clarified. Because it sounded like dismissal.


#14

I suspect Poe’s law is in effect. Could be wrong though. But yeah, dismal if not satirical.


#15

So the potential leader of the free world thinks rape culture’s not rape culture when it’s banter. Nice to know

I’d say more but it’s likely to come out as a mean spirited slightly incoherent drunken rant, so a general ‘down with this sort of thing’

I thought this might turn out to be the most disgusting thing I heard about Trump all day, but then he decided to revive his feud with the Central Park Five (black teenagers who were wrongfully convicted of a violent rape and served a collective 40 years in prison before being exonerated on DNA evidence and a confession by the actual attacker).

Apparently Donald still thinks they should’ve been executed.

One last thing about Billy Bob there… he’s so vapid, even Nancy Grace can’t stand him


#19

Mark, that was kinda my point. Shoulda included a snark tag, I suppose.

" I apologize if anyone was offended."

IF???
