Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is embroiled in a number of accusations and scandals involving his treatment of women after a 2005 tape surfaced where he alleges he can grab women by the p*ssy because he’s a celebrity. It seems, however, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. In a 2013 interview, Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., implied that women
According to a finding from BuzzFeed, Jr. did an interview with The Opie and Anthony Show, previously on SiriusXM. While discussing whether women should be allowed to join an exclusive all-male golf club, Jr. advocated for exclusivity.
“If you have a guys’ place you have a guys’ place,” Jr. said, going on to describe himself as a “guy’s guy.”
One of the hosts claimed that when places like that exist, women “complain, ‘it’s harassment’ — that’s why we hate having them around. They stop us from doing what we want to do.”
“I’m of that mindset — and I’ll get into trouble, I’m sure I’ll get myself in trouble one of these days,” Jr. began, “if you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. Like, you should go maybe teach kindergarten. I think it’s a respectable position.”
That wasn’t all. He continued, “You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know,” not expanding on what “you know” meant. “But listen — there’s a place where you have to draw the line — but today the stuff you get in trouble for.”
The hosts then joked that they were pulling up naked photos of women in the studio, commenting, “Wouldn’t it be funny if we showed tits and then Donald sued?”
“I’d feel harassed!” Jr. mocked. “This is my get rich quick scheme. I’m now suing you guys because I feel uncomfortable.” He continued saying, “And by the way, that’s what happens in the world. I can play along, I can be fine, and then I can decide randomly — ‘uh oh, you now have crossed the line, even though I’ve been going with it.’”

Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines
Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.
"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.
More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.
At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.
Chief Justice John Roberts issues New Year’s Eve warning to stand up for democracy
"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."
Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why
According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.
As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
