Florida Rep dismisses Trump assault allegations: ‘He who has not sinned cast the first stone’
Florida Congressman Ted Yoho seems to think these that all of these sexual assault allegations against his party’s nominee, Donald Trump are nothing more than a sideshow and we should be talking about real issues..
In a Friday interview with Wolf Blitzer, Yoho was outright dismissive of Trump’s accusers. Blitzer played the footage of Kristin Anderson telling her Trump story.
“This is the vivid part for me,” she said in the interview. “So the person on my right, who unbeknownst to me at that time, was Donald Trump, put their hand up my skirt. He did touch my vagina through my underwear. Absolutely. And as I pushed the hand away, and I got up, and I turned around, and I see these eyebrows, very distinct eyebrows of Donald Trump. And I got up and I moved and I continued to talk with my friends.”
Blitzer asked Yoho, “do you believe her?”
“I’ve not talked to her,” he began, avoiding the question. “Being a Christian like I am, ‘he who has not sinned cast the first stone’. I would love to see our candidates come above this. If you look at the hot spots around the world with Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen…” he then pivoted to talk about foreign policy.
Yoho has been married to a woman since 1975 and has three children, two of whom are daughters. Yoho also voted against the reauthorization of the Violence against Women Act in 2013.
