Tapper blisters Giuliani: Your candidate thinks he can ‘grab women by the vagina — and it’s OK’

Published

on

Another day, another Donald Trump scandal and the latest involves the GOP nominee bragging about sexually assaulting women.

In a 2005 tape that was recently released to the Washington Post, Trump can be heard saying how he tried to “f*ck” a married woman and suggested he could grab women by the “p*ssy” simply because of his fame, money, and power.

On Sunday morning’s State of the Union, CNN host Jake Tapper spoke with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani about the Trump tapes and what it means for the last leg of the 2016 presidential election.

But Tapper was not interested in Giuliani’s rape apologist rhetoric and ripped into the former mayor almost immediately.

Tapper starts with, “This tape, which was recorded in 2005, on it we hear Donald Trump behaving in, it’s fair to say, a vile and disgusting way. It’s not just the words he uses. He’s essentially voicing a casual attitude toward sexual assault.”

Giuliani has regularly come to Trump’s defense on issues pertaining to the former reality star’s disregard for women. His response offered a mix of rape apology and pointing the finger back at Clinton’s scandals.

The former New York mayor retorts, “They’re remarks you certainly don’t want to hear from anyone, much less a presidential candidate. Then when you reflect on it, he apologized for them.”

He continues, “The question, is this the one issue on which we should decide? Apparently democrats don’t think the one issue they should decide their election on is the fact that Hillary Clinton seems to have used a State Department as a pay for play operation for the Clinton Foundation.”

But Tapper was uninterested in Giuliani’s remarks, noting “I understand you would want to change the subject.” Tapper suggests that Trump’s apology was hardly that, as the GOP nominee’s so-called apology deflected and ended in an attack against the Clintons.

Tapper says, “I guess the question is he’s talking about actions that are sexual assault and he was 59 or 60 years old when he said it. This wasn’t something he said when he was 18 years old. He is talking about a feeling of entitlement because he’s a star. He can go up to women and grab them by the vagina and it’s OK.”

He continues, “Who did he do that to? I will gladly tell you, Mr. Mayor, I have never said that, I have never done that … I’ve been in locker rooms, I’ve been a member of a fraternity, I have never heard any man ever brag about being able to maul women because they get away with it. Never.”

An ABC News poll released on Sunday morning finds that 43 percent of Americans think Trump should drop out of the race. The poll also finds that more than 75 percent of voters are “somewhat to very worried” about the future of the country if Trump is elected in November.

Trump loyalist Corey Lewandowski testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday and it quickly devolved into a circus in which the former Trump campaign manager refused to answer basic questions from Democrats.

During the hearing, the House Judiciary Democrats sent out a tweet accusing the White House of orchestrating a coverup of the president's actions as outlined by special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

However, many Twitter users went on to hammer the Democrats for purportedly treating the constantly obfuscating and stalling Lewandowski with kid gloves.
