Never mind Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings—what we're really looking foward to this Sunday is round two of the presidential debate between Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The first debate was a disaster for Trump, who later declared his distaste for: Clinton on the grounds that she launched personal attacks; on moderator Lester Holt for being hard on him; and on organizers for giving him a "broken microphone".
God help Trump in round two, because Clinton has fresh ammunition for the argument that he's basically the worst person on the planet earth.
The Washington Post has obtained and released a 2006 audio recording where Trump is visiting a soap opera set with Access Hollywood. The tape features Trump—who was married to his third wife Melania—talking about a woman that he was attracted to. In his own words, "I moved on her like a bitch". Needless to say, he struck out, which he notes he's man enough to admit.
Highlights include such lines as "I did try and fuck her. She was married" and "Then all of a sudden I see her, she's now got the big phoney tits". Dating advice including his contention that if you are famous women will let you "Grab 'em by the pussy. You can do anything."
Trump issued a rare apology a couple of hours ago, releasing a statement in which he said "This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago,. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended"
Clinton, meanwhile, said what we're all thinking when she issued a statement in which she said on Twitter "This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president."
Enjoy Sunday. And we're not talking about the turkey dinner.
