The ad begins with words on the screen: “He really believes this.” What does he believe? Trump is shown saying that “Putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing.” And: “When I come home and dinner’s not ready, I go through the roof.” (Implicit message to married white suburban women who usually vote Republican: Donald Trump is every awful husband you’ve ever known.)
Then the subject changes from how Trump treats wives to his creeping and assault. ”He really said this,” the words remind viewers, before a clip of the “grab them by the pussy” (bleeped in the ad) video plays. Lester Holt says “More accusers coming forward to say they were sexually assaulted by Donald Trump.” Then Trump: “I’ll go backstage before a show, and everyone’s getting dressed.” A reporter: “Donald Trump walked into the dressing room while contestants—some as young as 15—were changing.” Trump: “Standing there with no clothes. You see these incredible-looking women.”
Then the subject changes yet again. Now it’s women Trump hates and thinks are ugly. “I’d look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers.” “She ate like a pig.” “A person who’s flat-chested is very hard to be a 10.” Question: “So you treat women with respect?” Answer: “I can’t say that either.”
I swear these just keep getting better and better.
And the great thing about them is that it does not involve somebody suggesting that there MIGHT be something troubling about this candidate, the candidate tells you there is something troubling about him in his own words.
In other news, somewhat related, the woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her when she was thirteen years old cancelled her press conference today after receiving threats.
Courtesy of Raw Story:
Attorney Lisa Bloom abruptly cancelled a press conference scheduled on Wednesday where a woman who has accused GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump raped her when she was 13, pulled out after being threatened.
With a full contingent of reporters on hand, Bloom said the young woman, identified in court documents as “Jane Doe,” is now living in fear for her life.
“Jane Doe has received numerous threats today, as have all the Trump accusers that I have represented,” Bloom explained. “She is living in fear, she has decided that she’s too afraid to show her face.”
“She has been here all day, ready to do it, but unfortunately she is in terrible fear,” she continued. “So we are going to have to reschedule. I apologize to all of you who came today for this inconvenience.”
Gee I wonder WHO would be threatening her?
Update: The lawyer for Trump's rape victim had her firm's website hacked.
Could this be the Russians perhaps once again working to protect their favorite presidential candidate?Our firm's website was reportedly hacked today, as well as emails. Anonymous claims responsibility. https://t.co/KA6R4Xvpb7— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) November 3, 2016
Not so crazy of a thought actually.
