Donald Trump has a message for America: I’m not dropping out of the race and you can’t make me. (And this would be where he sticks out his tongue.)
Following the release of a recording featuring Trump making grotesquely vulgar statements that amount to a description of sexual assault, calls for Trump to step down as the GOP’s nominee have been pouring in. But as expected, Trump has proudly given them the middle finger and said on Saturday that there is “zero chance I’ll quit.”
“I’d never withdraw. I’ve never withdrawn in my life,” Trump told the Washington Post. “No, I’m not quitting this race. I have tremendous support.”
On Friday night Trump released his own video saying how sorry he was to have bragged about being able to grab women “by the p*ssy” thanks to his celebrity status.
“I never said I’m a perfect person nor pretended to be someone I’m not,” Trump said in the video. “I’ve said and done things I regret and the words released today on this more than decade-old video are one of them. These words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong and I apologize.”
Go figure, despite his pathetic excuse for an apology, a lot of people still think this crossed a line. Among those who have called for Trump to drop out are Senators Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), and Mike Lee (R-Utah). Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Martha Roby (R-Ala.) have rescinded their endorsements and even conservative radio show host Hugh Hewitt is calling on Trump to remove himself from the Republican ticket.
Donald Trump couldn’t be a worse human being. Thanks to a hot mic, he has now put that on display in a way that even the GOP is having a hard time trying to defend and explain away. This may finally put the nail in the coffin of Trump’s campaign.
