That's what Trump does - he tells immature, bragging lies because he thinks it impresses whoever he is talking to at the moment. And because he has the personality and maturity of an insecure 15 year old you get exactly those type of comments. Problem is Trump is still doing at age 70.
I have almost zero sympathy for Trump - he certainly deserves every bit of condemnation he gets. The only aspect of this that bothers me is the hypocrisy of his detractors in the media and celebrity world who have all engaged in the same behavior (or worse) and have largely given a pass to the Clintons who are far worse human beings than even Trump.
I mean Arnold Schwarzeneggar pulling support from Trump because of his history for poor treatment of women - man come on.
I have no idea if he made this stuff up or not. I saw something over the weekend that he has been accused of groping women in the past and has had sexual assault complaints raised and dismissed. If I had to put money on it, I'd bet that he was not making it up and he did exactly what he said he did. And, I'd equally bet he's not wrong about Bill Clinton. But, unfortunately for him, Bill Clinton is not running for President. And, he also wasn't stupid enough to say it where someone had a microphone recording his words. Thems the breaks, I guess. Regarding people like Ahnold, as far as I know he only cheated on his wife and didn't sexually assault anyone, but I honestly don't pay that much attention to the goings on of the beautiful people. I generally do not care what they do. If you want to make the argument that he's as immoral as Trump is and looks like a total hypocrite, I think that is probably accurate.
As for the general hypocrisy comment, people hate him. I think this news is more than fair game, but it's amazing to me how it knocked the wikileaks stuff almost completely out of the news cycle. I realize that there are serious questions about the veracity of what was released and how much of it may have been manufactured, but the whole thing was barely talked about at all. Assange screwed up showing his hand over the summer. He made a public statement that he had more on Clinton and would release it in October, close to the election. I have little doubt that someone was sitting on this Trump recording for sometime and I doubt the timing of when it was handed over to WaPo was any kind of coincidence. What can I say, the Clinton's play hard ball and they are better at this game than Trump is. Bill is probably the slickest politician of his generation. He is a master and I think he is absolutely behind this. And, I think they are both vile sociopaths but she knows how to play to polite company and Trump does not.
It is what it is, and what it is is over. He was about 5 points behind her prior to this weekend. Now he's behind by double digits. There is just about no way he can win.
