I don’t know who all these people are that claim that the language Trump used in that infamous video is just locker room talk that all men have heard all their lives. But what I do know is that if my brother or any of my male cousins ever spoke about women that way, our mothers would collectively swoop down from heaven and beat them soundly with a broom.
In families where men are raised to respect women, they do not talk that way or use that language about women ever. Ever. We did not hear it growing up. Our fathers all treated our mothers with respect. And if they hadn’t, then their mother-in-laws would have beaten them.
So Trump’s excuse is weak and pathetic… as weak and pathetic as he is.
