I think it's just that people in general react more viscerally to this sort of thing that's telling about a candidate's personality and who they are than they do to policy or lack thereof. It's not a good thing, but it's understandable.

And yeah. Watching this unfold is sort of beautiful.

If you've ever had the misfortune of dealing with a Donald Trump supporter online, you would know that one of their favorite insults is to call someone a cuckold; I've never seen sorry, heard better irony.

Trump is a rapist, according to statements given under oath. His first wife gave sworn deposition to this effect, stating that he raped her multiple times, and he's presently fighting a legal battle over allegedly raping a minor. Commenting on a lady's tits or talking about grabbing her pussy (his words) as a way of "moving on her like a bitch" is small potatoes.

This will all blow over like a Trumpian comb-over and he'll be stronger for it. Because Bill Clinton.

I do love that "Bill Clinton" was basically his response to this point.

Seeing the GOP depart/freak out en masse is also really enjoyable right now.

It continues.

POLITICO: Romney: 'Trump demeans our wives and daughters and corrupts America's face to the world.'

Governor of Utah, Utah Congressman, and John Huntsman all unendorsed Trump. I'm curious, what's the down-ballot effect this has? How do people like Rubio play this?

Do you think Ted Cruz is wishing he held out on caving to pressure on endorsing Trump right about now?

This is actually very interesting if Mormon Utah will turn on him and either run to his opponent if they hate him enough, or flee instead to Johnson. Utah's Mormons are the most powerful voting bloc in the state and they have very high morality standards.

Problem with Johnson is he's pro-abortion. I imagine 35% will win Utah, but who the fuck knows.

Hopefully the Democrats can pick up the senate. That would be nice.

48 hours before the next Debate, I think most down-ticket Democrats are gearing up to hammer their opponents into the ground until every last one of them withdraws their endorsement or goes down with the ship.

"Let's be honest, we are living in the real world. This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we are facing today."

So Trump tried to defend this in a 91 second video posted on Facebook. I didn't even try and I managed to get a pretty good quote. This guy is a champ.

I'm a little disgusted with this country right now. Out of all the horrible shit he's said and done, how is this what gets his campaign team to sit Trump down and say, "grovel and apologize or you're done"?

The public can apparently tolerate bigotry and fascism, but not naughty dudebro sex talk. Awesome.

Racism and authoritarian intolerance of immigrants and muslims is in fashion right now in Right politics in the West.

Sexual assault, far from the days of Mad Men, is less tolerated than ever. If ever you wanted a poster for Rape Culture (a troublesome term at best), it's him in this video. No wonder his sons look like 1980s B-movie pimps.

You should see some of the comments defending him in FB news threads. Holy shit.

No thanks. I value my sanity.

Edit: I love that Fox News has become Fox Weather, running pre-aired Matthew coverage for hours on end, as every other news outlet takes on this meltdown.

I don't see how Hillary can lose at this point, short of her announcing on video that she's a raping, paedofile, serial killer.

Having the mentality that she can't possibly lose, is how Hillary can lose the election. Part of the reason why Bernie Sanders did as well as he did was because she just sat there and held her hand out with the attitude of "Alright! Put my nomination right here, its my turn." She didn't start to make a real effort until Sanders started winning states. And you have to remember that there are people out there that loath Hillary Clinton so much that there is absolutely nothing Trump can do that will make not vote for him over Hillary.
