CNN Panel Goes South When Trump Fan Defends His Sexual Misconduct — WATCH:


CNN Panel Goes South When Trump Fan Defends His Sexual Misconduct — WATCH:

A CNN panel discussion with female voters on President Trump’s first year in office got heated when the host Alisyn Camerota asked whether the women believed the multiple allegations of sexual harassment and assault by women against the president.

A female Trump voter defended President Trump’s lewd comments about women in an infamous “Access Hollywood” tape on Friday, saying Trump’s words were “taken out of context.”

“I believe that the president has been accused of everything under the sun,” one woman said. Others on the panel fired back reminding the panel of Trump’s 2005 interview with “Access Hollywood” where he bragged about his celebrity status and exploits with women, saying he could “grab ’em by the p—y.”

“This really gets my Irish up, the way his words are taken out of context over and over again,” one voter said. “He did not. He talked about what was possible in the world of celebrities.”

Then-candidate Trump took the blame for the tape when it surfaced during the 2016 election cycle, saying it was “locker room talk” and that he was “not proud of it.”

Multiple women who had accused Trump of sexual misconduct during the campaign renewed their public complaints against the president in December, prompting top Democratic lawmakers including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) and Jeff Merkley (Ore.) to call for the president’s resignation.

Camerota asked whether the Trump supporters on the panel thought the president’s female accusers were all lying.

“Could be,” said a woman who defended Trump during the discussion. Another added that “we know who’s lying.”

Tangela Wagner-Edmond, a Trump voter who now says she regrets her vote, expressed exasperation at the way people make excuses for the president’s behavior, no matter how obnoxious.

“Why is it that everyone that loves Donald Trump wants to make excuses for him?” she said. “He’s the president and he’s supposed to be a role model.”

Trump is now facing scrutiny for an alleged affair he with an adult film star after marrying first lady Melania Trump.
