When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president last summer, he did so by referring to illegal immigrants as "rapists" and "murderers." In the 16 months since the announcement, Trump has been in a constant state of controversy which appears to have reached a boiling point over the last week.

Obama sounds off

After a leaked audio tape was released last week, revealing Trump's sexual desires and thoughts, many Republicans were quick to condemn the GOP nominee. While a few retracted their endorsement, many others have decided to stand by him.

Even after multiple reports broke Wednesday night, with several women accusing the billionaire real estate mogul of various acts of sexual assault, Republicans are still sticking by their nominee. As reported by Mediaite on October 13, President Obama decided to voice his thoughts on the current state of the election and he didn't hold back.

While campaigning for Hillary Clinton Thursday night, Obama took time to rip into Republicans who have condemned Trump's recent comments and allegations, but still support him.

Obama accused Republicans of trying to save face by speaking out against Trump "at the very last minute," but remarked, "You can't wait until that finally happens and then say, 'Oh, that's too much!" Obama didn't stop there, making sure to inform those who still support Trump that they "don't get points for that!"

In regards to the allegations against the former host of "The Apprentice," Obama referred to Trump's comments as words that "no decent person would even think, much less say, much less brag about or joke about, much less act on." While the president was hard-lined in his view of Trump and the GOP, it was his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, who made an even bigger impact earlier in the day.

The First Lady addressed a crowd while also campaigning for Clinton, giving an impassioned speech on the topic at hand, while referring to Trump as "disgraceful" and "intolerable."

Moving forward

While Trump had started to narrow the gap just a few weeks ago, his momentum has been all but lost over the last seven days. With one debate remaining and the clock running out to make a historic comeback, the consensus among pollsters and most political pundits is that the former Secretary of State will become the the country's first female commander in chief.
