Donald Trump is doing all he can to brush aside a 2005 video where he engages in degrading and disgusting statements about women – something he now excuses as “locker room talk.”
But in 2010, while the Entertainer-in-chief hosted his Celebrity Apprentice show on NBC, Trump fired professional wrestler Maria Kanellis for engaging in the same “locker room” talk about another contestant.
The new video comes as the GOP nominee’s campaign deals with fallout from his obscene remarks about women in 2005, which Trump classified as “locker room talk” during Sunday night’s presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis.
“Isn’t it sort of gross bringing that up? It’s, like, disgusting,” Trump said, in reference to a comment Kanellis made about another contestant’s bodily functions.
“This is my board room. It’s not a locker room. Maria, you’re fired.”
If Trump is capable of firing someone because they made “Locker room” comments on his television show, shouldn’t the American people fire him for making the same comments, and stop him from seeking the highest office in the land?
Seems right to me.1
