As the Election Turns: Russia accused of election hacking; Trump caught on tape talking about groping women

Posted By on Fri, Oct 7, 2016 at 2:58 PM


This sounds like the morning newspaper lede headline, don't you think:

U.S. government officially accuses Russia of hacking campaign to interfere with elections
Trump should just tell his pal Putin to stop. Unless....

UPDATE: But wait ..... something else came along.

 The Washington Post has obtained a tape of Trump making lewd comments about women in 2005. His response: Bill Clinton has said worse. A campaign statement, in full:

This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to men on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.
The tape includes a conversation after Trump, by then married to his third wife, and Billy Bush had spotted a soap opera star of Days of Our Lives waiting for their bus to participate in a segment of the show.

“I’ve gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump says. “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,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”

“Whatever you want,” says another voice, apparently Bush’s.

“Grab them by the pussy,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”

Trump also recounted making a move on an attractive woman, though the date wasn't clear.

“I did try and fuck her. She was married,” Trump says.

Who needs reality TV?

PS: Delicious timing here in Arkansas, on the day we got this release from the Trump campaign:

Have you heard the news? Governor Asa Hutchinson has joined our campaign as Honorary Chairman of the Arkansas Leadership Team. The State Leadership Team also includes U.S. Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton, Congressman Rick Crawford, Congressman French Hill, Congressman Steve Womack, Congressman Bruce Westerman, Lieutenant Governor Tim Griffin, and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.
The Twitter storm is fearsome. And many have begun talking about how what Trump is quoted as saying would, in practice, amount to sexual assault. Among them, state Rep. Nate Bell of Mena, a Republican turned independent:
