Is THIS what it takes today?

Earlier this morning I posted the following article on Donald Trump:

Trump: I was being an entertainer when I insulted women

The pull quote comes from this longer interview with Nevada NBC News 3’s interviewer Jim Snyder, who spoke with Trump just before he took the stage at a rally:

EXCLUSIVE | One-on-one with presidential candidate Donald Trump

In my post, I said the following: “Here’s a tip, Donald. We don’t think you’re entertaining. We think you’re scary as hell. Go f*ck yourself.”

This honest, unfiltered opinion comes from months of listening to all the media responses I’ve read to Trump’s candidacy, a high powered Acela-style train wreck that included accusations of human trafficking and fraud. That his showing in his first debate with Hillary Clinton could be even remotely considered a win is unfathomable, but now, there’s this.

Tonight, around 4pm, news broke of another video clip. This one, from 2005, catches in audio from a hot microphone, Trump’s real, unfiltered opinion of women, spoken glibly to a fellow misogynist. The reduction of women to easily manipulated pieces of meat is disgusting and rings all too true to ANY woman who has experienced such abuse firsthand.

The news, which the Washington Post broke at about 4pm this evening, comes as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention to the things this dirtbag of a human being has said on camera about women, but the depth and breadth of disgust has hit the Republican party full force.

Trump recorded having extremely lewd conversation about women in 2005

Trump caught on tape making crude, sexually aggressive comments about women

Trump’s leaked comments aren’t just “lewd.” They describe sexual assault. Which Trump has been formally accused of before.

I can’t imagine any self-respecting woman voting for this POS. If you still “like” Trump (and I ask because I’ve seen those exact words in my Facebook feed in the last 48 hours), you’d better have a REALLY good reason. Because this, here, is what he thinks of you.

There is NO amount of political spin that can turn this into gold for Trump. Not this time. The established party of NO thinks women deserve pedestals, but Trump’s supporters eat this crap up because this is what they think of women. They AGREE with Trump’s assessment of a woman’s value. They see nothing at all wrong with any of the things Trump has said in the entire time he’s been on the campaign trail.

Women make up 50% of the country’s voting age population. We have an opportunity to make ourselves heard at last, to derail this train wreck before we lose our ability to say or do the right thing.

If you’ve sided with Trump, you’d better have a damn good reason for backing this human train wreck. Early voting is already underway. If you think this man has you in mind when he talks, you really don’t understand his motives at all. He will take you, me, and the rest of the country over the cliff, and he’ll smirk his way straight to Hell.
