Donald Trump just loves to say that if elected he will be the best President ever on the issue of women’s rights. Yet he chose Mike Pence–the most anti-woman candidate to ever be elected–and is now defending a man who may have sexually harassed dozens of women over the past two decades, former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.
Appearing on “Meet the Press” this morning, the GOP nominee was asked directly about the allegations of sexual harassment which led to the resignation of Roger Ailes this week. Trump replied:
“Well I don’t want to comment. But he’s been a friend of mine for a really long time. And I can tell you that some of the women who are complaining, I know how much he’s helped them. And even recently. And when they write books that are fairly recently released, and they say wonderful things about him.”
How exactly did he help them, Donald? By insisting they have a sexual relationship with him? By ogling and groping them and then threatening them if they didn’t give into his sexual advances? You call that helpful?
Trump went on to add this, even though he’d just said he didn’t want to comment:
“And now all of a sudden they’re saying these horrible things about him. It’s very sad. Because he’s a very good person. I’ve always found him to be just a very, very good person. Any by the way a very, very talented person. Look what he’s done. So I feel very badly. But a lot of people are thinking he’s going to run my campaign.”
Yeah, he’s a good person who just happened to sexually harass nearly every attractive female employee he came into contact with. I have news for Trump, had Ailes done to my daughter what he is alleged to have done to Gretchen Carlson, he would have left Fox News headquarters in a wheelchair. How would the Orange Menace like it if some letch did the same to his daughters Ivanka or Tiffany? I’m betting he would have hired one of his Mafia contacts to make sure Ailes had a “tragic accident.”
Once again we see that Donald Trump is unfit to lead this country in any capacity. Maybe when he loses he and Roger Ailes can go hang out in some strip clubs together. That is, if any strip club would let them in the door.
Here’s the full interview with this gigantic piece of human excrement:
