CNN focus group of women voters erupts into chaos when Trump fan excuses president’s sexual assault
A CNN panel of Trump voters got heated when the network invited anti-Trump “Resistance” activists to join the debate.
During a segment that aired on Friday, a panel of all-women voters once again delved into President Donald Trump’s infamous boast about sexually assaulting women on the leaked “Access: Hollywood” tapes.
When a fellow panelist brought up the fact that Trump bragged to Billy Bush about grabbing women by their vaginas, Trump voter Daphne Goggins excused the president’s behavior by simply shouting out, “He’s a man — I’ve heard way worse than that!”
Fellow Trump voter Alice Butler Short similarly spoke up to defend the president and insisted that his statement about grabbing women by their genitals was being taken out of context.
“He talked about what was possible in the world of celebrity,” she said. “President Trump — he never would have had to do that kind of thing. He’s not that kind of man!”
Tangela Wagner-Edmond, a Trump voter who now says she regrets her vote, expressed exasperation at the way people make excuses for the president’s behavior, no matter how obnoxious.
“Why is it that everyone that loves Donald Trump wants to make excuses for him?” she said. “He’s the president and he’s supposed to be a role model.”
