A graphic video has surfaced of Trump trash talking women and sex. It’s just horrific. But you have to give Mike Pence points… when he sensed he was being ambushed at a restaurant over the issue, he asked the press to leave. I don’t blame him. I know this will have Trump supporters applauding. There’s no way Pence could win on that issue.
From the Huffington Post:
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence’s team kicked reporters out of the restaurant where he was eating Friday after a 2005 video emerged of his running mate, Donald Trump, making lewd and explicit remarks about women.
Pence’s traveling press pool — the rotating group of reporters and photographers who are tasked with following the Republican vice presidential candidate for the larger press corps — were “removed” from Tony Packo’s Cafe in Toledo, Ohio, after the first stories about the video hit the internet.
I’m not one of Trump’s supporters and I am appalled at this video. It was taken in 2005. That was the year he married Melania. He’s talking about getting it on with a married woman and Trump was a newlywed at the time. So very not presidential. And for those saying, oh… that was eleven years ago… I don’t give a crap. This goes to character.
From the Independent Review Journal:
The pool shot video of Pence and his daughter, Charlotte, ordering food and greeting patrons of Tony Packo’s. He then sat down briefly at a table to say hi to others before heading to the back of the restaurant for an interview with the newspaper, the Toledo Blade. During this time, the pool was waiting at the front of the restaurant. After about 20 minutes, it was then led halfway back into the restaurant by a Pence staffer in preparation for shooting Pence’s departure and, notably, his viewing of the Trump-signed hot dog bun, which the staffer specifically told the pool it would shoot.
The Pence staffer, after leading the pool further into the restaurant, appeared to grow suspicious of the pool, which had been looking down at its phones and chatting. The pool did not address the Trump stories at all, but the staffer then left the pool to head to the back of the restaurant, where Pence and other aides were. Upon returning, the staffer said the pool needed to leave, specifically saying Pence would no longer be going to view the signed bun and, instead, would go directly to his campaign bus.
Billy Bush just told Variety, “Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago — I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.” I’m far less concerned over Bush than Trump here. Trump is the one running for the presidency.
The Washington Post somehow obtained “Access Hollywood” footage from 2005, where Trump talked in graphic terms about how easy it was for celebs like himself to seduce women, even saying, “Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything.” This was on the set of “Days of Our Lives.”
While I applaud Pence’s actions here, there is no side stepping the vulgarity that is Trump. This is what the GOP has chosen. They chose poorly.
