Prominent Republicans call for Donald Trump to drop out of the nomination
#1
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman ® on Friday called on GOP nominee Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race after The Washington Post published an explicit recording from 2005 in which the New York businessman speaks about women in lewd and derogatory terms.

In a conversation with then-”Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush, Trump claimed he tried to have sex with a married woman and could grab women “by the pussy” because he was a celebrity.
Responding to the tape, Huntsman said it was time for Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Trump’s vice presidential running mate, to assume the GOP nomination.

“In a campaign cycle that has been nothing but a race to the bottom — at such a critical moment for our nation — and with so many who have tried to be respectful of a record primary vote, the time has come for Governor Pence to lead the ticket,” Huntsman told The Salt Lake Tribune.

Pence, however, dodged repeated questions about Trump’s comments at a campaign rally in Ohio on Friday night.
Huntsman, who ran for president in 2012, said last week he was planning on voting for Trump even though the two men disagree on a “range of issues.”

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), a vulnerable Republican facing re-election this year who has already said he would not vote for Trump in November, also called on Trump to drop out Friday night.

A few other Republicans followed suit. A.J. Spiker, a former chairman of the Iowa Republican Party who was previously critical of Trump, echoed the call for Trump to resign and called him “unfit for public office.”

So too did former Labor Secretary Linda Chavez, who served in the George W. Bush administration. In an interview with MSNBC, Chavez, who also served under Ronald Reagan, called Trump’s remarks “vile.”

Garrett Jackson, a former aide to 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney, also called on Mike Pence to assume the nomination, tweeting that “any decent human can beat Clinton.”

GOP strategist and Trump critic Ana Navarro joined the chorus of voices Friday evening calling on Trump to resign, adding that “he is not fit to be called a man.”

Most of his "success" has come from being a sleazy grifter, look at all the stories out there of people and businesses he's ripped off.

True. The standard for an effective salesman is that one gets sales volume In some industries, if one convinces one in ten of potential customers (so it is with sales by telephone) one is a success.

Quote:I don't think you can describe woman offended by his remarks "old hags." I think lots of women would be offended by YOUR remark.


If one truly respects women, then one will recognize them for things other than their sexuality... like character, competence, work ethic, etc... on which you would judge men. My judgment of a man who thinks it acceptable to grab female crotches without her consent is simple: he is an abuser. Just because one does not want her as a sexual partner does not mean that she is worthless.

Add to that, I see something terribly wrong with someone nearly sixty years old insisting on having sexual relationships with young-adult women. "Half plus seven"?

He has trivialized some vile, offensive acts against women. One need not be an 'old hag' to find it offensive. If I had a daughter and heard her boyfriend talk as Trump did about crotch-grabs I would warn her to stay away from him... and I would tell that boyfriend that he is to stay away from my daughter.

Of course I would have taught her that someone who does bad things to females of any kind is completely inappropriate as a partner.

Lovely to see there are some sensitive and kindly souls still out there. We need more of them.
Keep on being you.
