Top GOP Leaders And Even VP Mike Pence Condemn Trump’s ‘Grab ‘Em By The Pussy’ Remarks, Some Demand He Step Down
Following the sexually aggressive comments said by Donald Trump back in 2005 that included the Republican presidential candidate advocating “grab ’em by the pussy,” scores have spoken out to condemn him. There has also been a massive whirlwind of politicians in his own party denouncing, chastising and even calling for Trump to withdraw from the 2016 presidential race.
“No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever,” Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus said.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said he was “sickened” by Trump’s comments and disinvited him from an event Saturday in Wisconsin with Priebus and Sen. Ron Johnson. Ryan did not withdraw his support for Trump, but he did criticize the Republican presidential nominee.
“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,” Ryan said.
Donald’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, appeared in Trump’s place at the event on Saturday.
However, Trump’s vice president issued a statement that condemned the Donald’s comments from over a decade ago.
Mitt Romney, the Republican Party’s nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election,
Jeb Bush, who lost to Trump in the Republican primary, took aim at Trump for his comments.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Trump’s aggressive comments were “indefensible.”
