WASHINGTON ― Donald Trump said his admission that he likes to assault women was just “locker room talk.” He admitted he didn’t pay taxes. He had Bill Clinton’s past accusers seated in the front row. And he promised to prosecute his political rival if he wins.
The morning after the debate where the GOP nominee did all those things, his campaign manager woke up and went on TV to say it was a good thing for voters.
“I think it was a good night for democracy,” Trump’s campaign boss, Kellyanne Conway, said on the “Today” show when asked if the display was good for American politics.
“They really have a contrast. They really have a choice in two candidates this year, in this election cycle, next month,” Conway insisted.
“For those interested in issues, which we talk about every day, there was plenty to hear about in those 90 minutes,” Conway added.
She also detailed some of those issues, briefly touching on Syria and Iraq, while dwelling on the biggies that Trump does indeed talk about every day: Hillary Clinton’s email and Benghazi.
So yes, there was a contrast.
