Earlier today the Washington Post dropped a bombshell designed to put Donald #trump's chances of winning the 2016 presidential election on life support, when a 2005 video showing the GOP nominee having a lewd conversation about women was released. The video, which drew harsh criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike, shows Trump on the set of a soap opera bragging about his sexual conquests. In the video Trump stated, “And when you’re a star they let you do it,” Trump says. “Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything.”
Denounced by fellow Republicans
While Trump made other cringeworthy comments in the video, it was this particular statement that drew the ire of prominent Republicans like Mitt Romney (who labeled the comments as "vile degradations"), Illinois senator Mark Kirk (who referred to Trump as a "malignant clown"), Kelly Ayotte, Jeb Bush and RNC chairman Reince Priebus, who stated, “No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever."
My message to every journalist, politician and pundit who has blasted Trump for the lewd comments is this -climb down from your ivory tower and get a clue.
Yes, judging by the public outcry and condemnation, it would appear that 2016 America is in the throes of a Puritanical Revolution. Who knew? It is amazing how many self-appointed pillars of morality like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush are aghast that anyone, especially a rich celebrity like Donald Trump, would have an interest in bedding members of the opposite sex. I mean, after all, nothing like that ever happens in the real world, where we are all in bed by nine o'clock and we always remember to brush and floss after every meal.
Isn't funny that we live in a time when any given Kardashian can "leak" a sex tape without anyone batting an eye, but Donald Trump appears in a video stating (rather correctly) that certain females are willing to have sexual relations with rich and powerful males and everyone acts like it's the worst thing ever to happen in American political history since the night Mary Todd Lincoln said to her husband, "Hey, honey, wanna catch a play down at Ford's Theatre?"
You've got to admit, he does have a point
While Trump's comments may have been crude and degrading, the inconvenient fact of the matter is that, by and large, his statements weren't entirely untrue. Like it or not, the sad reality is that there is no shortage of females who are willing to be groped and fondled so long as the groper and fondler is somebody rich and famous. Hollywood is littered with star-struck bimbos willing to do disgusting things with bald, doughy film producers in the hopes of securing a three second part in a low-budget movie. If you don't believe that females are capable of purely physical relationships with filthy rich celebrities, then you, my friend, have never been on a tour bus with Aerosmith, Kiss, Motley Crue or any other rock band. And if you think females aren't capable of being sleazy, then you have never watched Amy Schumer do stand-up.
And finally, dear reader, if you think Donald Trump ought to be tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail for a raunchy private conversation he had in 2005, then you, my Puritanical revolutionary friend, are a far greater example of virtue and morality than the average American. Why, you ought to consider running for public office yourself. Just one word of advice if you do decide to run for office, however; be sure to delete all of those naked selfies from your phone and clear your browsing history to hide all those visits to Pornhub. If you're not good with technology and aren't sure how to destroy incriminating evidence, don't worry-- I hear Hillary Clinton knows somebody who can do that for you. #WashingtonPost
