Friday was the day from hell for Donald Trump, and it wasn’t even the 13th yet.
Following the leaked audio from 2005 when the GOP presidential nominee was recorded telling Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush about grabbing women by their genitalia and doing whatever he pleases to them.
‘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. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything […] Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.’
By now, it’s obvious the world has tuned in to witness what may in fact be the downfall of Donald J. Trump.
And of course, anytime Trump opens his mouth it’s basically a heyday for the media.
Tonight MSNBC’s Chris Hayes chatted with fellow anchor Rachel Maddow about the damning events of the day. He began by asking Maddow:
‘What the heck happened today?’
Summing up how every journalist feels from time to time, Maddow responded, saying:
‘You know, it’s one of those things where you had a show planned, I had a show planned, everybody had a night planned – I honestly feel like there’s a pretty good chance we don’t know who the Republican candidate is for president by the end of the weekend.’
Could she be correct in her prediction? How far will The Donald’s supporters let him go?
RNC Chair Reince Priebus has already condemned Trump and rebuked his support for the presidential nominee, following his absolutely appalling remarks. Other prominent Republicans are beginning to speak out against The Donald as well.
Hayes responded to whether or not the GOP would be forced to choose another candidate rather sarcastically, saying:
‘There are a couple of things that are starting to make me think that.’
To which Maddow responded:
‘It is within the realm of possibility.’
Friday evening Trump issued a rather pathetic apology before deflecting from the issue at hand and brining up former President Bill Clinton’s alleged history of abusing women.
Similar to a small child, The Donald tried to excuse his disgusting behavior by making claims that the Clintons have abused and bullied women in the past, and that we should all focus on them instead.
