Ex-‘Apprentice’ producer says there are ‘far worse’ Trump tapes to come

Published

on

A former producer for Donald Trump’s reality TV game show The Apprentice says that there are more tapes of the Republican nominee saying “far worse” crude and sexual things about women than the ones that came to light on Friday.

The Hill reported Saturday evening that Apprentice producer Bill Pruitt tweeted that the 2005 recordings of Trump are just the tip of the iceberg and that more recordings are on the way.

“As a producer on seasons 1 & 2 of #theapprentice I assure you: when it comes to the #trumptapes there are far worse. #justthebegininng,” wrote Pruitt.

On Friday, an anonymous source provided the Washington Post with audio recordings made in 2005 of Trump boasting to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush in a crude and offensive manner about the power his fame gives him over women.

“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,” said Trump of the women he meets.

“And when you’re a star they let you do it,” he said. “You can do anything. Grab them by the p*ssy. You can do anything.”

The offensive language has caused many Republicans to turn their back on the party’s nominee. His surrogates are flooding the airwaves in an attempt to blame the mess on the media. They insist that Trump has grown up in the 11 years since he openly boasted to an entertainment reporter about the power his fame gives him to sexually assault women with impunity.

Trump is set to debate Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Sunday night. The remarks are expected to figure heavily in the night’s topics.

Mick Mulvaney is Trump’s new fall guy on corruption — and Republicans just play along

Published

on

It's getting increasingly more difficult to keep track of all the new impeachable acts President Trump commits every day. And perhaps even more difficult to imagine the most outrageous thing he can do that the Republican Party would still defend.

This article first appeared in Salon.

It took almost two weeks, but the White House has finally admitting what everyone knew from day one: Trump demanded a quid pro quo from the Ukrainian government before releasing military aid authorized by Congress. Republicans have been denying the obvious, remaining willfully blind to a brazen scheme. That suddenly seems quaint, now that acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has confessed on live television that there was a quid pro quo.

The week Donald Trump’s presidency crashed and burned — and Republicans noticed

Published

on

It feels as though every week during the Trump administration is a year and every year a decade. Every day there is a crisis or an outrage or a revelation that takes your breath away. But the underlying dynamics always seem to be the same no matter what. The press reports the story, the Democrats get outraged, the pundits analyze it, the president rages and then Fox and the Republicans all line up like a bunch of robots and salute smartly. Then we reset until the next crisis, outrage or revelation. It's an exhausting cycle that never seems to get us anywhere and it's bred a fatalistic response in many of us: "Nothing matters."

Turkish president threatens US over Trump’s insulting letter: ‘When the time comes necessary steps will be taken’

Published

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an on Friday warned the United States that it would pay a price for the letter send by President Donald Trump that warned him that history "will look upon you forever as the devil if good things don't happen" in northern Syria.

The letter, which also advised Erdo?an to not "be a tough guy" or "a fool," was widely ridiculed in the media for sounding childish. Erdo?an, however, said on Friday that he took the president's letter as a serious insult to his stature as a world leader.

As reported by the BBC's Jon Sopel, Erdo?an called out the president's letter for being out of line with standard diplomatic protocol, and he suggested his country would not forget how the president showed them such little respect.
