Listening and encouraging it, but yeah, apparently the standards for hosting a gossip show on TV are higher than for the presidency.

Yeah you JUST heard a dude admitting to assaulting women and you encourage the first woman you see to hug a guy she is clearly uncomfortable with?   That's going to be a firing.

Billy Bush could conclusively demonstrate that jet fuel can melt steel beams, and I would find myself questioning that basic fact for the first time.

The guy is trying to stage his comeback, and would say/write anything to get back into the limelight.
 
2017-12-04 08:03:45 AM  
Everyone on the planet knows Trump is a chronic lech.  Every male who's ever been inappropriate with women is shaking in their boots wondering if they're going to be outed.  Yet Trump has been outed for a very long time and this dumb ass country elected him to the highest office, which is essentially condoning his behavior.

Trump must have done something so extraordinary in a past life that he's done and gotten away with so very much in this life, not even talking about the assault and misogyny.  Just being an all around shady scumbag and attaining the wealth and fame he has is bizarre.  Anyone else would have been in jail and/or disgraced into obscurity long ago.

My guess is if/when Trump gets called to give testimony for the Mueller investigation (or in front of Congress), being asked under oath to "verify" the Access Hollywood tape on the record will be part of the questioning.  And then he can either lie, or have to verify it under oath, and then this discussion of being "false" to others will be moot.

He said it. "Grab 'em by the pussy."
Of course he said it. And we laughed along, without a single doubt that this was hypothetical hot air from America's highest-rated bloviator.


Okay, let's look at that...
... this was hypothetical hot air = it was untrue
... doubt that this was hypothetical hot air = suspicion that it may not have been untrue
... without a doubt that this was hypothetical hot air = certain that it was untrue
What am I missing? Did I totally misunderstand that? Does the guy just need an editor? Is he purposely making the first statement of the piece contradict to the rest of it?

Ah - I never thought about that. I had always thought it seemed like it was a bit harsh as part of his job would have been to keep the "talent" happy and I'm sure there's a lot of stupid/crazy stuff you've got to smile and nod through in that industry. Flowing that right into putting little donnie into an embrace of a female coworker is a horse of a different color.

Thanks for the clarification.

You have to really watch the video. Donny gave her a side hug, being polite. Then it was Billy's turn, and he gave her a full on frontal mashing. The whole thing was a setup so Billy could get his hands on the poor girl.

No kidding. Little Billy Bush was giggling like a 9 year old in a sex ed class and egging Fat Donny on the whole time. Bush's whole "I was as dismayed as anyone" shtick is nothing but revisionism to anyone who saw the actual video.

Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass standup act. He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real.

No, you dumbshiat. Anyone not a hodor thought this was real. Trump's grab em by the pussy video came out after people had already accused him of sexual assault. That was long after (decades after) his penchant for arranging drug fueled orgies with underage fashion models was reported on.

You're trying to play this off like you were understandably hoodwinked. You weren't.  You made a massive error in judgement and elected a serial sexual predator to be president. You'd gain a hell of a lot of respect for saying that. You don't get points for pretending like the big bad president fooled you.

Yeah, well no.
Hollywood is purely about money. If they have a property that becomes toxic, they dump it.
Overall, that's fine. Since no one should look to Hollywood for their moral compass.

The GOP on the other hand, wants to tell us how we should live our lives, and pretends to be the shining torch of good Christian values.
They're not.
No one should look to the GOP for their moral compass.

Al Franken, John Conyers, and Bill Clinton should clearly demonstrate that the GOP isn't the only party who doesn't give a fark about sexual harassment and assault.

meanmutton: Al Franken, John Conyers, and Bill Clinton should clearly demonstrate that the GOP isn't the only party who doesn't give a fark about sexual harassment and assault.


Clinton was impeached, Conyers has a current investigation against him (with calls from Pelosi to step down, calling the accusations against him "very credible"), and the Franken thing just got rolling.  People like Weiner ended up out of office and in jail.

Comparing that to full-throated support of Moore, and I don't think you have much of a comparative argument.

apparently you missed the "leave conyers alone" rally that happened today in Detroit.
And pelosi currently calling for conyers to step down after being called out after a week of supporting him as an "icon" is most politely being called "an about-face".
Clinton was only impeached for lying under oath. There wasn't a trial for the sexual assault because his supporters kept calling his accusers things like "bimbo eruption" and trying to discredit them.

So what you're basically saying is that when a democrat is accused, there should be proof before action, but when it's a republican there should be action before proof that the accusations are true.

Can you please provide the ever-growing list of women who've come forward to say they were assaulted by Donald Trump.
Because...everyone calls the guy a sexual abuser...but...for some reason...
He doesn't have women lining up around the block with hideous stories, a la Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Bill Cosby, Louis C.K.
So...I'm curious as to why you say we elected a serial sexual predator...when no evidence of this exists past his own words...which, of course, EVERY MAN IN THE WORLD has exaggerated his prowess and gusto with women in front of other men...crudely or not.
Just because you tell other guys you just go in and "grab em by the pussy"...doesn't mean you actually do...
That's guy-talk...just to inform you men without balls here.It doesn't really mean anything...another word is called "bullshiatting"...you know...like real men do.

That's not what I said at all.  Didn't even imply it.

What was I was saying - in short - was that Democrats tend to face consequences for their actions.  Republicans don't, and are even encouraged or lauded for their actions.  And until our Commander in Chief, an admitted sexual crime perpetrator, is given the same treatment as someone like Anthony Weiner, there's not much of a leg to stand on in the BSAB argument.
