To those who have followed Donald Trump from his ridiculous escalator ride to the bottom of the barrel of American politics right up until Friday’s release of the Gropegate recording, he has always been an easy book to read. Nothing he typically does or says is truly all that shocking, because we know exactly what kind of person he is.
This is different. This isn’t typical Trump calling women names and being a sexist pig. That recording had nothing to do with sex. It had nothing to do with anything other than power, dominance and control. That’s not “locker room banter,” that’s what drives a sexual predator. The sex itself is a byproduct.
That’s why Republicans are jumping ship on Trump, withdrawing support — sometimes at the risk of their own campaigns — and speaking out publicly. That’s not going over well with Lord Cheeto, who decided since he won’t be making a further ass of himself until the debate Sunday night on TV anywhere that he’d take to Twitter instead to do some toddlering:
Tremendous support (except for some Republican "leadership"). Thank you.

Of course you have an amazing amount of support, you reprehensible freak. From day one you’ve courted the worst America has to offer. Hillary Clinton only apologized for calling half of your supporters “deplorables” because it was the right thing to do. That doesn’t make it any less true.
As with everything Donald these days, the tweet didn’t go over well. His social media accounts are proving to not be quite the massive support structure he thinks they are but rather a gathering place for people who loathe him to fire off when he decides to type something out with those tiny little fingers:
@realDonaldTrump You know those GOP leaders have many followers, right & that nothing like this rejection of you has ever happened before?
