What the ACTUAL f*ck.
Not only is Senator Jeff Sessions defending Donald Trump‘s disgusting comments, he’s trying to claim it wouldn’t be sexual assault if the presidential hopeful actually grabbed women “by the p*ssy,” like he bragged about with Billy Bush.
ICYMI, audio of a 2005 conversation between the GOP candidate and the TV personality leaked recently, revealing the Apprentice alum making all sorts of lewd comments about women.
The recording captured Donald saying:
“I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. … Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
That sounds like a pretty clear-cut example of sexual assault, considering Trump’s bragging about forcing his advances on those women, whether they were wanted or not.
However, Republican Senator Sessions is actually attempting to argue that ISN’T sexual assault, telling The Weekly Standard after Sunday’s debate:
“I don’t characterize that as sexual assault. I think that’s a stretch. I don’t know what he meant.”
REALLY?! Ugh. So disgusting.
We don’t understand how the Alabama legislator can possibly claim that wouldn’t be considered assault, especially since sexual assault is defined as ANY unwanted sexual contact.
And from that audio recording, it certainly didn’t sound like Trump was asking for consent before supposedly grabbing women by their genitals.
But, when the reporter raised that very point, the 69-year-old began to get tripped up, saying:
“I don’t know. It’s not clear that he ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ how that would occur.”
Come on, Jeff. Even Rudy Giuliani admitted Trump was describing sexual assault.
