Donald Trump’s not looking good right now with the Republican party. He’s lost the support of many prominent members in the wake of 2005 hot mic lewd statements about women. The Washington Post released the damning footage of Trump and Billy Bush going to town, but Trump claimed the most revolving soundbite with a “grab them by the p*ssy,” which has horrified folks more than anything he’s said in over a year of presidential candidacy. This doesn’t touch how Trump discussed kissing women whenever he felt like it, and they’d just take it because he’s famous.
As if on cue, more Donald Trump recordings have dropped. This time, no one can blame a hot mic because these are some old Howard Stern conversations. Such snippets are always fruitful with the most recent one revealing Trump’s marriage advice to Stern, which was “vagina is expensive.” From a policy standpoint, much fuss has also been made of Trump’s admission to Stern that he supported the Iraq invasion (though one can call Sean Hannity for further “clarification”). And who could forget the time Trump told Stern that Melania doesn’t poop?
Though it doesn’t seem possible, some more Stern recordings have dropped, courtesy of CNN. This time, the setting is 2006, and the two men discuss Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka, and whether she had recently gotten breast implants. Trump denied that Ivanka had done so and insisted that he’d know if she did. He added that she’s “always been voluptuous.”
