Donald J. Trump was caught blabbing to an entertainment host about how he treats women. He treats them badly, according to the recording.
Trump then acknowledged when the recording became known that it was “locker room talk.” He blew it off.
Oh, but now the president says in private the “Access Hollywood” audio is fake. It’s not his voice.
The president’s penchant for delusion is stunning. He also seems to believe that the public that knows what it heard is willing to accept this lout’s denial that he said what we heard him say.
I’ll add here that Billy Bush, the TV host caught laughing and carrying on when Trump talked in the 2005 recording about grabbing women by their private parts lost his job over his role in the hideous recording.
So now the president is suggesting that Bush got fired … for nothing? Is that what the groper in chief is telling us?
And then there’s this: The president reportedly has reopened that idiotic “birther” controversy involving former President Obama. Trump has been at the forefront of the lie that Obama was not born in this country and, thus, was not eligible to run for the presidency.
