Eric Trump: My Dad’s Bragging About Sexually Assaulting Women Is Due To His ‘Alpha Personality’

Eric Trump, who has made a habit of saying things that are even more offensive than his father, has tried to excuse the comments his father made in 2016 on Access Hollywood regarding sexually assaulting women as just part of what powerful men do, saying:

“I think sometimes when guys are together they get carried away, and sometimes that’s what happens when alpha personalities are in the same presence.”

Is that right? I’ve heard some pretty stupid excuses for men acting like jackasses, but that’s a new one on me, Eric.


Next, the spawn of Trump attempted to minimize his father’s actions and blame it all on…you guessed it, Bill and Hillary Clinton:

“And, listen, my father apologized for it. He was right to apologize for it, and I’m glad he apologized for it. At the same time, if you look at her track record with women, it’s horrible. It’s absolutely horrible.”


Yes, rationalize, minimize, and then shift blame to others. Classic behavior for a sociopath, which Donald (and I’m beginning to think Eric) clearly is.

Donald Trump has nothing but hatred, bile, and misogyny to offer this country. He truly is a deplorable human being. Then again, so is his son, Eric.

This Resurfaced Video Of Trump Making A Move On A Young Girl Will Absolutely Disgust You

Donald Trump may hold the title of Commander-in-Chief, but it would be much more appropriate to call him the Pervert-in-Chief. From bragging that he likes to grab beautiful women by the genitals to the sickening remarks he’s made about his own daughter, Ivanka, Trump never fails to raise the stakes when it comes to being a dirty old man.


The latest proof of Trump’s lechery arrives in the form of a video which resurfaced after more than a decade.

In 2007, Trump gave a speech to the San Francisco Learning Annex for which he was reportedly paid a cool $1.5 million. And in the speech, Trump reverted to his typically disgusting self and began telling the story of a young teenage girl–“a beautiful girl, 17 or 18, so beautiful”– he hired to be a waitress at one of his restaurants despite the fact that she had zero experience.


In the video below, Trump invites the young girl, named Juliet, to join him onstage, and then remarks:

“My people said, ‘Mr. Trump, she has no experience,’ so I interviewed her anyway because she was so beautiful.

“I said, ‘Do you have any experience?’ She goes, ‘No, sir.’ I said, ‘When can you start?’”

Then Trump smiles like the proverbial Cheshire cat and says:

“Isn’t that terrible? You can work on my plane anytime.”

As Juliet leaves the stage, Trump comments:

Now if she worked on my plane that’s like a death wish for me.”


The video, which was first discovered by The New York Daily News in 2016, is now even more relevant, as a former contestant on The Apprentice, Summer Zervos, has subpoenaed all records from the Trump campaign involving accusations of sexual harassment and assault complaints made by numerous women. Zervos alleges that in 2007 Trump kissed and groped her when she asked for a job at the Trump Organization.

So while the news is filled with the conviction of  movie executive Harvey Weinstein on rape charges, let’s not forget that a sexual predator named Donald J. Trump has also abused women for decades and even managed to get elected to the highest office in the land. When will justice be meted out for his actions?

Watch the video for yourself:

Kavanaugh’s Confirmation All But Guarantees Democrats Will Retake The Senate

On Saturday, just hours before Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed by a narrow 50-48 vote in the U.S. Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made it sound like the entire Kavanaugh fiasco had been a positive for Republicans:

“It’s been a great political gift for us. The tactics have energized our base. We want to thank the mob, because they’ve done the one thing we were having trouble doing, which was energizing our base.”

While the McConnell/Kavanaugh/Trump alliance may have energized the GOP base, Republicans are now facing an enraged Democratic base on the other side, and that means McConnell won’t be the most powerful man in the Senate for much longer.

10 contested Senate seats will decide who controls the upper house of Congress in 2019: Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia.

The bad news for Democrats is that Heidi Heitkamp, the Democrat in the North Dakota race, appears to be toast. She continues to fall back in the polls and is an incumbent in a deeply red state. That means she is almost guaranteed to lose, barring some last-minute miracle.


But in the other nine state, Democrats look to either be in good shape or at least tied with their GOP opponents.

Specifically, Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, Tennessee, and West Virginia seem to be trending towards the Democrats, and even incumbents such as Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and John Tester (D-MT) appear more resilient than had been predicted.

The bottom line: With a surge of female and younger voters — both of which are deeply disdainful of Donald Trump and the GOP — the Democrats are poised to win seven or eight of the 10 Senate races listed above. That number could be a bit smaller, as Tennessee is still somewhat in play.

One race appears to be a legitimate toss-up, and that’s Texas, which should be a cakewalk for Ted Cruz (R), but isn’t with less than a month left. And that’s a very bad sign for the Republicans.

When the votes are counted and the smoke clears, don’t be surprised if Democrats hold the Senate majority by as much as 55-45. That number could even be as high as 56-44. Either way, that means Trump won’t be able to get any of his judicial nominees through and could also spell his doom if impeachment is initiated in the House.

So let’s take a moment and thank Mitch McConnell for all but guaranteeing he won’t be running the show in the Senate for much longer.

Ivanka Gets Her Fee Fees Hurt When Reporter Asks About Daddy Being A Sexual Predator (VIDEO)

If there’s one thing we know to be true about Donald Trump, it’s that he’s a disgusting sexual predator who delights in forcing himself on women. He’s done it repeatedly over his life, and dozens of women have accused him of it.

“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.”

And yet, when his daughter, Ivanka, was asked whether or not she believes the allegations against her daddy, the First Daughter got upset, telling NBC reporter Peter Alexander:

“I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father, I know my father. I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”

Oh well, so much for empowering women.

Shortly after the interview aired on the Today show, there was a strong reaction on social media:

Like her father, there is one thing that Ivanka excels at: Hypocrisy.

WATCH: Paul Ryan – I’m Too Busy ‘Fixing Congress’ To Investigate Sexual Abuse Claims Against Trump

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is a very happy man. He’s finally managed to pass massive tax cuts for the rich that will explode the deficit so he can then implement his plan to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Appearing on the Today show Wednesday morning to discuss the GOP tax bill, host Savannah Guthrie also asked about Ryan’s recent comments that any member of the House who has been accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment should immediately resign from office:

“President Trump has been accused as well. Three of those accusers recently asked for a congressional investigation. They want you, they want Congress to look into whether those accusations against the president are true.”

A clearly uncomfortable Ryan told Guthrie:

“Those are criminal matters and Congress doesn’t do criminal investigations.”

Guthrie:

“You do ethics investigations.”

Again, Ryan tried to pass the buck:

“I would invite you to talk to the White House.”


And then Ryan tried to make it all better by assuring Guthrie and viewers that he was busy making things better for everyone:

“Let’s give this issue the respect it deserves. And that’s why we’re taking this seriously and we’re doing mandatory training, we’re going to bring out a whole slew of reforms at the end of the week to show how Congress is going to get ahead of this problem and make sure that victims have rights.”

The NBC host then reminded the Speaker:

“It should not be a partisan issue. The White House position on the president’s accusers is that they are all liars. Is that your position?”

A clearly bested Ryan then told Guthrie:

“Look, I don’t even know what all of these accusations are. I’m focused on fixing Congress.”

Fixing Congress? If you want to do that, try resigning and urging your Republican colleagues to do the same. Oh, and before you leave, impeach the sexual predator in the Oval Office.
