CNN pundits on both sides of the aisle are overcome with shock and disgust over the new Donald Trump scandal. The 2005 hot mic video has Trump in his own words talking about women in the most vulgar of terms and describes him grabbing women by their genitalia and kissing them against their will.
CNN reporter Dana Bash outright called the comment something a teenage boy would say. “It’s just not the way most people think and certainly don’t — don’t speak that way unless they are as you said in the locker room and maybe 13 and 14-years-old and just learning about things like this,” she said.
The panel noted that Trump is already having a problem with women, particularly suburban women, and this isn’t likely to help. CNN political correspondent Brianna Keiler said that these simply add to the long list of controversial statements Trump has made about women.
“He has dismissed some of his past comments about women saying that was entertainment. No one respects women more than I do. He sort of tried to reassure people that in private moments he’s very respectful. Well, this is a private moment and you hear how he speaks,” she noted.
CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who has been covering Trump and the campaign since the beginning said that this latest story spells the end of the Trump campaign.
“You know, I think this could be it,” He said. “I mean, I think this is one of those moments that come in a campaign. I think this far exceeds what happened with Mitt Romney’s 47 percent moment. This is one of those moments that’s can absolutely sink a campaign. And as Dana was saying earlier Donald Trump has had a problem with women voters throughout this process. If you’re a female voter on the fence and undecided and thinking maybe you don’t like Hillary Clinton so maybe you will vote for Donald Trump this is one of those moments that’s will give somebody a tremendous amount of pause.”
He went on to note that this dropped just days before the Sunday debate, when Trump was expected to redeem himself after a poor debate performance in the first round. “She has used the term basket of deplorables. There isn’t much more deplorable than this. This is the exact definition of deplorable. He’s in his own basket of deplorables right now.”
‘A profound emoluments clause violation’: Andrew Napolitano slams Trump’s hosting the G7 at Doral
In the wake of acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney's announcement this Thursday that next year's G7 summit will be hosted at President Trump's Doral golf club, Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano pointed out that Trump would be violating the emoluments clause if he were to go through with the move.
At the outset of the segment, Fox Business Network anchor Neil Cavuto said that the announcement is "effectively saying the president has given himself this contract."
Modi tells Xi summit will launch ‘new era’ for India and China
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.
Modi and Xi strolled along a pristine Bay of Bengal beach and held one-on-one talks overlooking the ocean before their delegations sat down to official negotiations at the historic resort town of Mahbalipuram, south of Chennai.
The two leaders are meeting for the second time in a year in a bid to ease tensions over border disputes, the troubled Kashmir region and China's domination of trade between their huge economies.
Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
