Donald Trump Didn’t Actually Say ‘Grab Em by the Pussy.’ It Was a Fake Trump

Move over, “fake news.” “Not authentic” is coming for your spot.

Everyone remembers Donald Trump’s “grab em by the pussy” remark. It was a comment made to Billy Bush while his mic was hot on Access Hollywood. The comment is over a year old and somehow, Trump won the election. It should be time to move on.

But that’s not Trump’s style.

Instead, Trump now wonders whether or not the tape and comments are even real.

The news comes out in the light of Roy Moore’s sexual assault allegations. If you’re like me and try to keep your political news and sexual assault news separate, let me fill you in on Roy Moore. He tried to fill in teenage girls. That’s all you need to know.

Trump continues to support Moore, because of course he does, and doesn’t want Moore to back down from these allegations.

Here’s what the New York Times had to say about Trump’s decision to support Moore:

As Mr. Moore has rejected calls to drop out even as more women have accused him of preying on them when they were teenagers, Republicans have given up any hope that he will fold his campaign. Mr. Trump has repeatedly told his aides that he does not believe Mr. Moore would ever quit.

But something deeper has been consuming Mr. Trump. He sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after. He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently.

So Mr. Trump has been particularly open to the idea, pushed by Mr. Moore’s defenders, that the candidate is being wrongly accused, even as Mr. McConnell and a parade of other Republicans have said they believe the accusers. When a group of senators gathered with the president in the White House last week to discuss the tax overhaul, it took little to get Mr. Trump onto the topic of Mr. Moore — and he immediately offered up the same it-was-40-years-ago defense, according to officials at the meeting.

We knew Trump was pro-sexual assault when we elected him president. Are we really surprised he’s still backing the guy who has been accused of multiple sexual assault charges? I’m more surprised that Trump hasn’t canceled the December 12th elections and just appointed Moore governor of Alabama. I don’t think he’s allowed to do that. But I’m positive he doesn’t know that he’s not allowed to that.

Keep in mind, Trump apologized for his comments on Access Hollywood. It turns out, that apology wasn’t authentic either.
