While trying to put a positive spin on his father’s offensive comments about sexually assaulting women, Eric Trump ended up revealing something even more disturbing about his father’s behavior.
To “grab them (women) by the pus*y” against their will are a result of his “alpha personality,” the younger Trump said at a Trump campaign HQ in Denver, Colorado on Monday.
Eric Trump was in Denver doing damage control, as several Colorado Republicans have renounced their endorsement of his father following the discovery of his lewd comments revealed by the leaks.
“I think sometimes when guys are together they get carried away, and sometimes that’s what happens when alpha personalities are in the same presence,” Eric Trump said, once again using his Father’s excuse of “locker room talk,” despite many professional athletes publicly taking offense to this defense.
He then blamed Hillary Clinton for his father’s leaked audio, alleging that she was the source of the leak.
“I think that’s Hillary going low. I think you’ve seen that for a long time,” Eric Trump said.“She’ll dig out dirt on someone from 15 years ago when someone is in entertainment.”
Trump added: “And, listen, my father apologized for it. He was right to apologize for it, and I’m glad he apologized for it. At the same time, if you look at her track record with women, it’s horrible. It’s absolutely horrible.”
Recent polls show Hilary Clinton widening her lead over Donald Trump nationwide. A recent estimate by RealClearPolitics estimates gives Clinton an 11-points lead in Colorado.
