Try as he might, Donald Trump can’t gloss over his decades-long record of sexually harassing and assaulting women — especially as he continues to attack the appearance and character of the courageous women who have over the last week publicly alleged Trump practices what he preaches when it comes to sexually assaulting and harassing women.
“Uh, I can’t say that,” Trump said in 1993, when asked if he treats women with respect. A surprising moment of candor from the serial liar that the Republican Party selected as its presidential nominee.
But then again, as America (re)learned two weeks ago, Donald Trump is happy to share his enthusiasm for and history of harassing, demeaning, and abusing women: “[W]hen you’re a star, they let you do it…You can do anything,” Trump bragged in 2005, adding, “Grab them by the p—y.”
Trump is an abusive bully who brags about sexually assaulting women, thinks a working woman is a “dangerous thing,” and takes pride in demeaning women as “slobs,” “pigs,” and “disgusting animals.”
