People have been warning there’s opposition research files on Donald Trump three feet thick. It’s been around and the Clinton campaign is using it. The video that “surfaced” of Donald Trump saying some pretty lewd things about women.
And now Paul Ryan is checking out of an event they were supposed to appear at together:
House Speaker Paul Ryan Friday evening uninvited Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump from a Saturday appearance together following the release of a tape in which Trump was recorded making vulgar comments about women.
Ryan said he was ‘sickened’ by Trump’s lewd comments before calling on the businessman to show respect for women.
Here is Ryan’s statement:
“I am sickened by what I heard today,” Ryan said in a statement. “Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests.”
This is not going away for Trump any time soon. The entire weekend will be spent talking about this.
