You’ve probably heard it by now, and if you haven’t, count on hearing it repeatedly from whiny Democrats over the next few days and weeks, but presidential nominee Donald Trump apparently had a very “just the boys” conversation on a bus about women back in 2005.
Amazingly, someone secretly recorded it, kept it for more than a decade, then remembered they had done so just one month before the 2016 presidential election, at a time when Hillary Clinton is sinking in the polls and desperately needs to shore up her chances of winning.
How the hell does that happen?
In the tape, Trump uses a lot of vulgar language, of the sort you can hear on Showtime, AMC, just about any cable station and most movies aimed at anybody over the age of 13. He shows some disrespect toward women, again of the sort you might hear in a lot of locker rooms — specifically, he used words like “t**s” and “p***y” referring to female anatomy.
In the recorded conversation, Trump talks about his failed attempt to seduce a married woman, then he talks about how he likes to kiss women and grab them. At the time, he had been married to Melania a few months.
Trump has already waded in to attempt damage control. “I’ve said and done things I regret,” Trump said. “Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow.”
In a sane world, that would have been the end of it, but we’re in the middle of a presidential free-for-all over the heart of the nation, riding on the crest of Third-Wave feminism, when men are no longer allowed to be men, and women are strong — until some mean ol’ man talks dirty.
And then there’s Hillary Clinton, ready to take advantage of any disaster that befalls her competition.
Hillary pronounced Trump’s immature musings “horrific.” Presumably, she then fell into a full-on Scarlett O’Hara swoon (probably her third or fourth of the day, but it’s just “dehydration”).
She also added, “We cannot allow this man to become president.” Because the nation couldn’t possibly survive a president who uses dirty words and treats women shabbily. …
Speaking of Hillary’s husband, Bill, she once (at least) during his term of office called him a “miserable c*** sucker” in front of Secret Service and other staff, according to The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, and How Far She’ll Go to Become President, by Edward Klein.
In fact, in addition to a temper more befitting an avenging fury than a presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton has quite the potty mouth, having earned a reputation for cussing like a sailor.
Some documented examples:
On Labor Day 1991, back at the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion, she yelled, “Where is the G**damn f**king flag! I want the G**damn f**king flag up every morning at f**king sunrise,” according to Inside the White House, by Ronald Kessler.
After one of her state trooper body guards dared to tell her good morning, she screamed, “F**k off! It’s enough I have to see you s***-kickers every day, I’m not going to talk to you too!! Just do your G**damn job and keep your mouth shut.” That’s from American Evita, by Christopher Anderson.
“Stay the f**k back, stay the f**k back away from me! Don’t come within ten yards of me, or else! Just f**king do as I say, Okay!!?” That White House soliloquy was related in Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House, by Clinton FBI Agent in Charge Gary Aldrich.
A more recent anecdote comes from 2009, when Hillary visited Turkey. Military K-9 handler Eric Bonner related this July in a viral Facebook post that he and his dog, Suli, were assigned to sweep the area for explosives, and when Clinton showed up, she yelled at the pair, “Get that f**king dog away from me,” then spent the next 20 minutes berating the security detail for letting an animal in her quarters.
One of my personal favorite quotes, which I think Hillary should put on a campaign bumper sticker, is, “Come on Bill, put your d**k up! You can’t f**k her here!!” From Inside the White House, by Ronald Kessler.
Speaking of Bill’s many, many, many trysts and sexual assaults, one of his long-time lovers (who he was also cheating on over the course of years) was former Dallas attorney Dolly Kyle. In her book Hillary: The Other Woman, released earlier this year, she has a lot of recollections of Hillary’s charming personality, as well.
In addition to being foul-mouthed, Hillary is also cruel, vindictive, insensitive and probably anti-Semitic as well.
Kyle recalls Hillary Clinton referring to Jews as “stupid k**e” and “f**king Jew b*****d”; developmentally challenged children at an Easter Egg hunt as “f**king retards”; and calling Jesse Jackson behind his back “G**damned n****r.”
(And just as an aside, remember Hillary pointing out in the first debate that Trump had been sued by the Justice Department in the 1970s on behalf of black renters, a case which he settled? Well, in the 1980s, Bill Clinton was sued multiple times by blacks and Hispanics for intimidating black voters and other violations of the 1965 Voting Rights Act — and he lost every time. He had even tried to replace a lawfully elected black representative with a white candidate, until he was stopped, 8-0, by the Supreme Court.)
The crowning achievement of Hillary Clinton’s mouth, however, has to be the suicide of Vince Foster. FBI reports (which have since vanished from the National Archives) suggested that Hillary ripped into Foster in front of his staff and peers so viciously that a week later he committed suicide.
The Clintons and their zombie horde have gotten a lot of mileage out of supposedly “offensive” things Trump has said. Yet for all Trump’s casual machismo and off-the-cuff mannerisms, I have yet to hear of him killing anybody with his words.
Keep that in mind as Hillary supporters engage in histrionics over Trump’s crude talk.
