Poll: GOP Voters Sticking With Trump After 2005 Recording
Unless you have been unconscious since Friday, you’ve heard the tape. In it, Trump makes comments about women that have proven difficult for even his paid surrogates to defend. And while most of us have heard – perhaps even said – worse, it’s still unsettling to hear the comments from someone who wants to be the president of the United States.
Fortunately, Trump hasn’t asked us to defend the remarks and he hasn’t made any attempt to defend them himself. He issued a heartfelt apology on Friday, admitted that he was wrong to say those things, and reminded voters that Hillary Clinton’s husband has engaged in actions that go well beyond locker-room rhetoric.
“I’ve never said I’m a perfect person nor pretended to be someone that I’m not,” Trump said in a videotaped apology later Friday night. “I’ve said and done things I regret and the words released today on this more than a decade old video are one of them.”
