10 Dumbest Excuses The Trump Campaign Uses To Justify Donald’s Filthy Mouth
Donald Trump, Leader Of The GOP
Donald Trump exemplifies the party of personal responsibility, and by that I mean he refuses to take any responsibility for his own behavior.
Trump’s disgusting “grab them by the pussy” comments are just the latest in a nauseatingly long list of Trump escapades. And rather than start a frank and open discussion about rape culture, after apologizing profusely, the Trump campaign has, instead, began desperately to fling excuses out, hoping that one of them may stick.
The Washington Post is keeping a running list of Trump excuses for his comments.
When Trump Is In Doubt, Blame Bill
1. It’s Bill Clinton’s fault.
“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”
“There are two issues. The tape itself, which unfortunately is the kind of language that we hear in rap music, we hear in probably coarse conversation, you know, unfortunately, we hear this.”
And then there’s this video.
Wait – NOW They Believe In Evolution?
3. It’s Hollywood’s fault that Trump believes he can grab women by the pussy because of his fame.
From “evolutionary psychologist” Kevin MacDonald:
“Trump is nothing if not an alpha male. He is rich and he is a celebrity. His comments happened in Hollywood where the culture of sex, celebrity, money, and power has been entrenched for 100 years. All that talk of the casting couch has a strong basis in reality. And it’s well known that male movie stars have access to a very active sex life if they want it. It would take a lot of will power to pass on a life that pushes the buttons of quite a few of your evolved pleasure centers.”
4. Let’s blame it on Fifty Shades of Grey.
From an excerpt of an interview with top Trump surrogate, Scottie Nell Hughes, and Anderson Cooper.
HUGHES: “Unfortunately, we have made that to be sort of a part of the culture, a ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ culture in today’s society that men can talk like that.”
COOPER: “Where have men made it OK to talk like that?”
HUGHES: “Eighty million copies of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ have been sold.”
Of Course, It’s (Probably) One Of These Two. Or Both. Maybe.
5. Let’s blame it on the Jews.
From editor of the Daily Storm Andrew Anglin:
“If we lose this election, it is going to be because of this pussy-grabbing tape. And having it be known that it was a Jew is extremely important. One of the GOP’s Jews being responsible makes it all the better.
“Because if we lose, this country is going to enter a new age of anti-Semitism.
“The 35% or so of the country that is hardcore pro-Trump is going to know that it wasn’t ‘liberals’ that defeated Trump, but traitors within the party who abandoned him. And they are going to want to know why that happened.
“And there is only one answer:
“The Jews did it.”
6. It’s because of the Democrats. Duh.

They Cannot Make Up Their Minds!
7. No, wait. It’s because of the Republicans. Establishment Republicans. It’s totally because of Paul Ryan.
From Jerry Falwell, Jr.
“I think it might have even been a conspiracy among establishment Republicans who have known about it for weeks and who tried to time it to do the maximum damage to Donald Trump, and I just … I just think it just backfired on them.”
9. Or it could also be King David’s fault. Seems reasonable.

Because ISIS. Of Course.
10. ISIS is worse.
When asked about his video comments at the second debate, this was Trump’s response.
“You know, when we have a world where you have ISIS chopping off heads, where you have — and, frankly, drowning people in steel cages, where you have wars and horrible, horrible sights all over, where you have so many bad things happening,
this is like medieval times. We haven’t seen anything like this, the carnage all over the world.”
And there you have it, ladies and gentleman. The party of personal responsibility doing what it does best – shirking all personal responsibility while proudly displaying its gross double standards and mind-blowing hypocrisy.
