    Another diversionary tactic by Hillary and the media to take the public’s eye away from the real issues that are happening in this country. It’s amazing that Hillary’s own husband who actually raped another woman and had dozens of sexual encounters with Monica Lewinsky from which she called her a narcissistic loony toon and called all of the other women that he was involved with physically bimbos but she can get away with degrading comments about women. Wake up people she’s a liar and a thief and a murderer and the media refuses to report anything about her private email account and Beghazzi. She should be in jail for all of it and yet we’re worried about what Trump said in a private conversation 11 years ago. Will they report the tapes of her saying that she got a convicted rapist of a 12 year old off because he was able to lie through the polygraph test. Do your homework everyone!

      Now for an original thought, try either word,,,,,, Trump is a crude, vulgar, ego-maniac – Sadly those worse than he make excuses for him to justify being a more crude, vulgar ego-maniac.

    How long till Mike Pence says Donald Trump never said that??.

    One thing is for certain. This is NOT the guy who is going to ‘Make America Great Again’.. He could very well try and #$&^ your wife, but that is about it.
