  • "Locker Room Talk"?

    Is this seriously the type of thing that gets given a pass among conservatives these days? Or is it, as most sane people consider it to be - sexual assault and boasting about it?

    Anyone's free to weigh in without any running to moderators on my part although I would ask that if GM feels so inclined, that he responds with something more substantive than "Hi"...

    There are still conservatives who are appalled at what the right has become. But they're outnumbered by the guys on the right who think sexual assault is acceptable behavior.

      That does seem to be the case ... the new GOP/Conservative/Trump Party can no longer claim to stand for *family values*. Though, it does make one wonder if they were just paying lip service for the last few decades.

        Not in the congress or the senate ...

          Or alternatively try to downplay it as something other than sexual assault or as some clowns insist, that Trump was being "general" in his remarks. Obviously not the case.

            None of those men seemed to be offended by what was being said.
            In fact, they seemed to encourage it.

            And that lady in the video didn't appear to be offended by Trump at all.

            And it is certainly no secret that some women do LET men do that to them.

            And ya'll are still fools to think that anyone looks to Trump as their poster boy for morality.
            He's been an unfaithful husband, like many many Presidents before him.
            I haven't heard anyone say that is a good thing to do by any President we have ever had.
            Have you?

              That makes bragging about sexual assault something to be okay about? Unlike Trump, Billy Bush paid a big price for those remarks and however sincere it was, at least he admitted it was his voice on the tape and apologized for the comments.

              And that lady in the video didn't appear to be offended by Trump at all.
              What, you mean the woman that Trump and Bush were getting off the coach to meet, who would have had no idea about what had just been said about her in such a sleazy manner?

              And it is certainly no secret that some women do LET men do that to them.
              Irrelevant, that doesn't excuse bragging about groping women in any way whatsoever.

              No, but then most don't brag about being able to sexually assault women and have multiple assault charges made against them either.

                The religious right seems to just love him. So yes, they certainly do.

                Does anyone really wonder what Tambora would have said, if Obama had turned out to be a sleazeball like Trump?

                Can you imagine the shrieks of indignation and condemnation from the religious right?

                  Apart from some feeble, unfounded mumbling about Obama possibly being gay, it's one thing far right zealots couldn't attack him on. You're absolutely right though. If Obama had been caught saying the same or similar to Trump or had multiple allegations of sexual assault they'd have been all over it and then some.

                    I'm all for locking up adulterers and their partners in crime, and throwing away the key, at the very least.
                    ALL of them, not cherry-picked ones.

                    We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.

                      So, you're all for locking up people for adultery but not sexual assault? By your logic Trump should have been behind bars years ago before any assault allegations even came up and before he had a chance to be president...

                        That is not at all what I said.

                          So why are you lauding a guy who by your very own admission should have been locked up permanently some years ago?

                            In regards to adultery it certainly is as you've just said in your words. So, why did you vote for a guy who by your own admission shouldn't have even been able to run for office?

                              Obama shacked up with a woman he was not married to.
                              Plus sexual relations with other women he was not married to.
                              They should be locked up for sexual misconduct.
                              If you want this country to get serious about sexual misconduct, then let's get serious and stop beating around the bush.

                              If you don't demand it within your own community, don't demand it from the White House community.
