Now, the Republican nominee’s son has chimed in to defend his father’s remarks, and apparently all the Trump boys like to party in the same locker room!
On Tuesday, Eric Trump echoed the business mogul’s p*ssy-grabbing sentiment as mere “locker room banter,” explaining that conversations like this are common when “alpha personalities are in the same presence.”
Speaking to the Colorado Gazette, the younger Trump said:
“I think it’s locker room banter. I think sometimes when guys are together they get carried away, and sometimes that’s what happens when alpha personalities are in the same presence. At the same time, I’m not saying it’s right. It’s not the person that he is.”
There you have it! Trump only brags about kissing women without consent ONLY in front of fellow alpha males… you know, like former Access Hollywood sweetheart Billy Bush!
Since the scandal broke, Trump’s team has continued pass it off his comments as just normal conversation between guys when women aren’t around, instead of the fowl boastings of a man whose own daughters are even repulsed by him.
Suggesting this type of conversation regularly happens is not only insulting to the vast majority of men and boys, who do NOT speak about women that way, but it also perpetuates the type of outdated, toxic masculinity from which we’ve long since evolved.
Let’s not move backwards, America.
