Dear Trump: What ‘Locker Room’ Have You Been In?

Trump was caught on tape having a conversation, but it certainly was not “locker room” talk.

Last night, the Republican presidential nominee faced off against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in their second presidential debate.

And while there’s a boatload to comment on, many are responding to the GOP candidate’s dismissive remarks in response to allegations of sexual assault.

“It’s locker room talk, and it’s one of those things,” Trump said before moving on to another topic. “I will knock the hell out of ISIS.”

Trump’s response follows leaked video that captured him saying that because of his fame, he could “grab women by the p**sy.”

What ISIS has to do with such a vulgar statement has yet to compute for me.

Needless to say, people—including professional athletes—were not here for Trump’s excuse, and took to social media to voice their opposition.

Since the scandal, Republicans have noticeably distanced themselves from Trump.

“I strongly urge his campaign to consider what’s best for the future of our country and our party, and step aside so that we can defeat Hillary Clinton,” House Speaker Kurt Daudt said.

According to political experts, stepping aside is likely the only way Trump could be replaced as the Republican nominee for President under the Republican National Committee’s Rule 9.
