A discussion on why some Republican women voters are sticking with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump turned into a shouting match when Trump advocate Kayleigh McEnany attempted to pin the blame for former President Bill Clinton’s affairs on Hillary Clinton.
Appearing on Erin Burnett’s OutFront, CNN regular Angela Rye began talking about Trump’s video comments — where he admitted that he has sexually abused women — by describing how the law specifically defines sexual assault.
“One of the things I wanted to do was read quickly just what the definition of sexual assault is because he denied any type of sexual assault when Anderson asked him about it at the debate last night, ” Rye began. “‘Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forceful sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling and attempted rape.’ If you’re grabbing people in their private areas, that is fondling, that is sexual assault.”
“Just so ironic,” McEnany parried. “The selective outrage that the left is okay with Hillary Clinton who put private investigators on people who had viable sexual assault claims, it’s selective outrage.”
“No, it’s not!” Rye shot back.
Turning back to McEnany attempting to pin the sins of Bill Clinton on the Democratic presidential nominee, Rye stated, “That’s rape culture. Kayleigh! You’re blaming someone who succumbed to someone committing adultery on her. We’re Christians. Let’s talk about what that is!”
As McEnany talked over Rye by shouting, “She was accused of facilitating it last night and she was definitely silent,” a frustrated Rye finally had enough, yelling back, “Kayleigh, you’re wrong! You know why. It’s f’ing ridiculous, dude! It’s so ridiculous.”
