I don’t know about you, but I personally wonder all the time about how on earth America managed to elect an admitted sexual predator. I mean, all the time.
There were plenty of things, in fact, that should have prevented Donald Trump from even getting the Republican nomination. You’d think that being a confessed molester of women would be enough, but just in case it wasn’t, Trump let us all know in no uncertain terms that he was a racist, a xenophobe, a sexist, not terribly intelligent, and the kind of guy who makes fun of handicapped people.
But his voters didn’t seem to care about any of that.
So just to give everyone a gentle reminder of at least the worst thing about Donald Trump, a women’s advocacy group called UltraViolet took action on Friday. They got the required permits in order to show the unflattering Access Hollywood tape — in which Trump admits that he sexually assaults women without warning or permission — on a 12-hour loop near the Washington Monument. It was a movie at the Mall!
The Washington Post reports that UltraViolet held a small protest at the site. Some attendees held a banner that said “Grab Back. Stop Rape Culture. Stop Trump.” Another man held a sign saying “Oust the Predator-in-Chief.”
But the real draw was the 10-foot by 16-foot screen showing the damning footage that should have prevented every woman in America, religious groups, true conservatives, and anyone other than sociopaths from ever considering Donald Trump an actual adult capable of running a country.
In case you forgot what a pile of shit Donald Trump is, let’s take a moment to review the video:
On the tape, you can hear exactly what Trump thinks of women:
I moved on her very heavily, in fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture… I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture. I moved on her like a bitch. I couldn’t get there and she was married. Then all-of-a-sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.
Yeah, that’s her with the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful… I just start kissing them. 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 pussy. You can do anything.”
Thanks, UltraViolet. Should we make this maybe a weekly event?
