Donald Trump basically admitted in an accidental audio and video recording that sexual assault is totally fine if you’re famous, that he tried to “f—” Nancy O’Dell, and made a slew of lewd remarks about Days Of Our Lives star Arianne Zucker. Billy Bush played along with it. Billy Bush won’t be fired, for reasons I may never understand, and Donald Trump won’t drop out of the presidential race, for reasons only narcissists may ever understand.
One of the women Trump admits to harassing in the video is married Entertainment Tonight anchor Nancy O’Dell. This all went down years ago, and two years later, Trump reportedly tried firing her from working his Miss USA pageant for being “too pregnant.”
Nancy O’Dell told Entertainment Tonight, “Politics aside, I’m saddened that these comments still exist in our society at all. When I heard the comments yesterday, it was disappointing to hear such objectification of women. The conversation needs to change because no female, no person, should be the subject of such crass comments, whether or not cameras are rolling. Everyone deserves respect no matter the setting or gender. As a woman who has worked very hard to establish her career, and as a mom, I feel I must speak out with the hope that as a society we will always strive to be better.”
That means as a society, we cannot allow this man to be president. Write in whoever you want, but please, don’t do this to us.
