The Trump Tapes this week was a surprising scandal to come out of the Trump campaign. The 2005 recording happened before a Today show appearance, wherein Trump is bragging about how he sexually assaults women, and he speaks about women in such a distasteful way. The audio clips of Trump’s discussion are so vile to me that I would be embarrassed to even write down some of the lewd remarks that he made. Essentially, Trump discusses forcing himself on women and being privileged to do so because he is a “star”, that he would have had sex with a particular woman had she not been married, yet Trump was married at the time of this tapes recording. He also refers to the woman’s breast as “phony tits” , omg so gross.
Trump has already proven he is unfit to be president of the United States, and many Trump supporters would completely disagree with me, saying, “ That is just how men talk”. That is not even an excuse. Trump’s hate speech, complete lack of experience , and plan of action for moving America forward. I would hope that this pushes American voters that were either undecided or planning to vote Trump to reconsider. It would be an utter embarrassment and irresponsible to elect a person of Trump’s character to office. Not only should minority groups and immigrants of this country be treated with respect , women should be as well! In fact all people should be treated with respect and consideration because all of the country’s citizens add to the fabric of what makes this country a good place to live. I did not think Trump could surprise voters anymore than he already had, but apparently he still has many an embarrassing remark up his sleeve.

Hi Alexandria, I could not agree with you more regarding Trump. I do not understand how Donald Trump could be allowed to run for president. He is completely unfit to be this country's leader. Not only does he not have political experience, but he does not have the temperament or character to run a country. I can understand his want to make a difference and can admire his perseverance but he does not understand what it means to be a president or political figure for that matter. There is constantly negative press directed towards him because of the actions and comments he makes. The comments he made during the leaked tapes were especially upsetting not only because he spoke proudly of sexual harassment but also because his apology did not seem genuine and he seemed much more annoyed with the situation. Trump chalked up the whole situation to "locker room banter," which as you said is not an excuse to make such vile comments. He constantly speaks negatively of minorities and women and thinks it is acceptable because he justifies his comments by saying they deserve it or they bullied him or he was simply speaking the truth. His actions demonstrate a clear lack of respect for this country and American citizens. Based on his character and actions alone, Donald Trump is completely unfit to be president.
