On 10/7/16, two days before the second presidential debate of 2016, a tape was released of Mr. Donald Trump talking to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush in 2005. In front of a live camera.
Donald Trump: You know and I moved on her actually. You know she was down on Palm Beach.
Unknown: She used to be great. She’s still very beautiful.
Trump: I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and fuck her. She was married.
Unknown: That’s huge news.
Trump. No, no, Nancy. This was— And I moved on her very heavily in fact. I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture. I took her out furniture. I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there, and she was married.
Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big, phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.
The men spot Arianne Zucker waiting for them outside the bus.
Bush: Sheesh, your girl’s hot as shit. In the purple.
Trump: Whoa! Yes! Whoa!
Unknown: Yes! The Donald has scored. Whoa, my man!
Trump: Look at you. You are a pussy.
Crosstalk as the bus doors open and close - Trump is still on the bus.
Trump: Maybe it’s a different one.
Bush: It better not be the publicist. No, it’s her. It’s —
Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.
And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.
Bush: Whatever you want.
Trump: Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.
Mr. Trump was 59 years old when the tape was made in 2005 and was newly married to his third wife. In 2016 he dismissed it as "locker room talk" but he was not in a locker room. He said that all men talk that way. GOP candidates began to unendorse him.
I think a more correct term than Pussygate would be Richassaultgate: that is, if you are male and rich, you are entitled to grab females. You are entitled to sexually assault them whether you are married or not, because you are male and you can get away with it because you are rich.
I think women are tired of being Trumped and tired of being Cosbyed and tired of being told to shut up, to take it, to be virgins, to be faithful, to behave, to be ostracized, disbelieved, fired, harassed and assaulted.
Men should be tired of it too. What is the version that they get from rich entitled men? Told that their contracting work is not good enough and they won't be paid?
Mr. Trump was not in a locker room. He was on camera. He was enjoying boasting about his "rights" of "sexual conquest" that he feels he can get away with because he is rich, male and a liar. He does not consider women to be people. They are either beautiful things that he can grab, assault and lie to, and exchange a trophy wife for a new one, or they are worthless.
How nice that he will now be beaten by a woman that he considers worthless. "Of course" Mr. Clinton fooled around because Mr. Trump has no use for a middle aged woman who does not look like his idea of a sex toy. Mr. Trump treats women as sex toys.
Mr. Trump represents all of the hidden worst of male privilege and discrimination. It is coming out of the closet. It will not be tolerated.
Goodbye Mr. Trump.
