Trump Was Just Asked How His Access Hollywood Comment Was Any Different From Harvey Weinstein

Not long after Nate Silver posted the difficult question of what is the difference between disgraced sexual predator Harvey Weinstein and President “Grab ’em by the pussy” Trump, the president provided his own answer to the question.

After telling CNN that he has known Mr. Weinstein for a long time and was “not at all surprised” by the revelations regarding the Hollywood mogul, Trump was asked by CNN White House producer Elizabeth Landers how Weinstein’s behavior was any different from the infamous Access Hollywood tape where he bragged to host Billy Bush about his suave method of assaulting women.

Given the chance to repent, or at least sufficiently explain, on the one year anniversary of the revelation of the Access Hollywood tape, Trump fell back to his stock excuse for his reprehensible comments.

Tell that to the pageant contestants in the Miss Universe dressing room, Donald. And while you’re at it, perhaps we can see some of those Apprentice out-takes that are said to be held under lock, key, and non-disclosure agreements by the show’s producers. Oh, and your taxes too, please, but, for heaven’s sake, don’t make us imagine the sight of you in a locker room. It’s just too much to take.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!
