When #CNN analysts are all their phone while on TV, you know something big is going down.
Was it criminal sexual assault or attempted rape committed by a US presidential candidate, when Donald Trump demanded from a former Miss USA to have sex with him, or she would be fired?
Trumps justification is just in: “I said it, I was wrong, I apologize.”
Perhaps he should have taken the 5th.
Experts say this was a criminal assault in the making. To summarize the predicted outcome: Hillary Clinton just won the election to become the first woman president of the United States !
US presidential candidate Donald Trump has it in for beautiful women. Money helps and it talks, and Mr. Trump knows this, while he is eyeing her breast.
Donald Trump attempted to have a previously pregnant Nancy O’Dell replaced as host of the 2007 Miss USA pageant years after she rejected his sexual advances, TMZ reported.
In 2007, O’Dell served as co-host of the formerly Trump-owned pageant, but it was only after the businessman failed at having her removed from her contracted post. According to TMZ, Trump didn’t want a pregnant woman hosting the show, but because of O’Dell’s contract with NBC, there was nothing the businessman could do.
On Friday, the Washington Post released a conversation caught on hot microphone between former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush and Trump.
The conversation took place as Trump and Bush were on board an Access Hollywood bus, arriving on the set of Days of Our Lives to tape a segment Trump was filming for the soap opera at the time. On the tape, Trump can be heard describing a failed attempt to have sex with an unnamed woman.
Hours after the footage surfaced, Access Hollywood’s Natalie Morales addressed the comments from 11 years ago on its Friday evening program and revealed that Trump spoke about two women — one of which was O’Dell.
“I moved on her actually. You know she was down in Palm Beach, I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it,” Trump tells Bush about O’Dell in the video.
“Whoa,” Bush responds.
“I did try and f–ck her, she was married,” Trump continues about O’Dell to Bush in the video.
“That’s huge news there!” Bush replies.
“Nancy, no this was, 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.’ I took her out, furniture, I moved on her like a b—,” Trump says to Bush, who can be heard laughing. “But I couldn’t get there — and she was married. And all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony t—, she’s totally changed her look.”
Shortly after the Post report was published, Trump, 70, released a statement saying: “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.”
Donald Trump faces an exodus of support, including from top Utah Republicans after the disclosure of this video.
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Rep. Jason Chaffetz said they can no longer vote for Trump, while former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman said the Republican presidential nominee should drop out of the race.
The video, first reported by The Washington Post, is a bombshell in this highly unusual contest and it comes just two days before the second presidential debate. Among the offensive things Trump says in the three-minute video is that he tries to sleep with married women and that he is forceful with a woman he finds attractive.
“I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait,” he says. “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“Grab them by the p–sy,” he says. “You can do anything.”
On Friday afternoon, Today co-host Bush issued an apology for his comments: “Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago – I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.”
Nearly 100 evangelical leaders have signed onto a letter urging their fellow Christians to vote against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who, they write, “has fueled white American nationalism with xenophobic appeals and religious intolerance at the expense of gospel values, democratic principles, and important international relationships.”
The letter was posted to Change.org on Thursday, and had nearly 5,000 signatures by midday Friday.
The evangelicals behind the letter do not necessarily endorse Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, they write ― but they are united in their opposition to Trump, who is working to maintain the Republican stronghold on the evangelical community.
“Imperfect elections and flawed candidates often make for complicated and difficult choices for Christians,” the letter reads. “But sometimes historic moments arise when more is at stake than partisan politics ― when the meaning and integrity of our faith hangs in the balance. This is one of those moments.”
Evangelical voters tend to support Republicans ― former President George W. Bush won 78 percent of evangelicals in 2004, Sen. John McCain of Arizona won 74 percent of them in 2008, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won 78 percent in 2012, according to exit polling.
