Donald Trump’s remarks about groping women are so nauseating that even his wife, Melania Trump, condemned him in a statement.
The Republican nominee is under the heaviest fire of his campaign after it was revealed on Friday that he made lewd comments about women during a conversation with Billy Bush by a hot mic during an appearance on Access Hollywood.
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them,” Trump said. “It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p*ssy.”
Trump made this comment only months after marrying his current wife Melania, and it has since been revealed that he was saying this in reference to his failed attempt to grope married woman and former Access host Nancy O’Dell.
Melania Trump has never made statements on Trump’s past remarks about women before, but she certainly did this time.
“The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know,” she said before still claiming that he is fit to lead our country. “He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”
Donald Trump is not a leader. Real leaders don’t insult over half of the population and treat them as nothing more than sex objects meant to be conquered by men.
Melania should be ashamed of her husband and humiliated, especially since he tried to grope a married woman only months after their own wedding. Clearly, Trump has no respect for Melania or the vows he took. How can this man possibly be trusted to honor an oath to defend and preserve the Constitution when he can’t even honor his own marriage?
