Donald Trump continues to insist that sexual assault is 'locker room banter' ... or like ISIS

The Daily Kos

During Monday night’s debate, Donald Trump was asked a very simple question:

You described kissing women without consent, grabbing their genitals. That is sexual assault. You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women. Do you understand that?

The short answer to that question is no, no he does not. The long answer? Take it away, Mr. Trump:

No, I didn’t say that at all. I don’t think you understood what was — this was locker room talk. I’m not proud of it. I apologize to my family. I apologize to the American people. Certainly I’m not proud of it. But this is locker room talk.

You know, when we have a world where you have ISIS chopping off heads, where you have — and, frankly, drowning people in steel cages, where you have wars and horrible, horrible sights all over, where you have so many bad things happening, this is like medieval times. We haven’t seen anything like this, the carnage all over the world.

And they look and they see. Can you imagine the people that are, frankly, doing so well against us with ISIS? And they look at our country and they see what’s going on.

Yes, I’m very embarrassed by it. I hate it. But it’s locker room talk, and it’s one of those things. I will knock the hell out of ISIS. We’re going to defeat ISIS. ISIS happened a number of years ago in a vacuum that was left because of bad judgment. And I will tell you, I will take care of ISIS.

Got that? Compared to cutting off heads, his little confession of multiple sexual assaults seems petty, doesn't it? Oh, wait, Donald Trump doesn’t think that grabbing a woman’s genitals without her consent is a sexual assault. It is. Period.
