Reminder: Donald Also Admitted He Sexually Harasses Women

Republicans and their media lapdogs are having a field day over movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s admissions that he sexual harassed actresses and female employees — trotting out the old “boeth sides do it” trope because Weinstein has contributed heavily to Democratic Party causes and candidates.

They conveniently forget that in the infamous “Access Hollywood” video, which surfaced one year ago this month, Donald Trump also admitted that he routinely uses his celebrity status to sexually harasses women. Since then 11 women have come forward with accusations against him.

To help them remember this important fact, we’re re-posting the “Access Hollywood” video.

Nettled He Settled

The Predator-In-Chief, oh, he’s wiley,
He understands when a guy’s being guy-y.
Bill did nothing wrong
With his hands or his dong,
Which is why Trump is defending O’Reilly.

Trump: O’Reilly Did Nothing Wrong

“I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled. Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”

— President Trump, quoted by the New York Times, on Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and sexual harassment allegations.

— Jake Tapper, on CNN, when Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) called groping allegations against Donald Trump “a she said, he said situation.”

12 Women Have Come Forward Alleging Trump Assaulted Them

12

Trump has denied the stories and is threatening legal action against some of the news outlets,” reports USA Today.

Just Feels Ugly

As more women come forward, Trump’s more combative.
Maybe his libido’s just overactive.
But that begs the question:
Why did he grope ’em,
If, as he says, they’re so unattractive?

Can’t Dodge It, Roger

When a blonde news bimbo or three assails ya,
After propriety and professionalism have failed ya,
If you’re Murdoch’s Fox News,
You know what to do —
Go ahead, get rid of what Ailes ya.
