The comments about a young girl take on an additionally disquieting dimension in context with several lewd jokes he has made about his own daughter.More questionable footage of Donald Trump making untoward comments has surfaced as the Republican presidential nominee struggles to recover from the fallout surrounding a leaked 2005 audio recording.In Sunday’s debate with Hillary Clinton, Trump insisted it was all “just words” and that he had never groped a woman.But at least three women have now come forward to contest that dismissal, telling news organizations he groped them in personal encounters at his home, at Trump Tower in New York, and on a commercial flight.I am bracing myself, because I know that I will careen right along with him, even if I am not allowed to show it. As he embarks on this particular adventure, I have a few things I really, really want my son to know. That’s all we really ask of you: to be clean and to smell good. It starts with no means no, and that is non-negotiable. No matter how small or humble, a gift is important. You can’t just say the words; you can’t just expect butterflies and rainbows. If you’re not ready to do the work, you’re not ready for a relationship. Sometimes it ends that way, but it shouldn’t start that way, and it shouldn’t live that way. Today, my husband made a joke about kissing, and instead of recoiling in horror, our firstborn gave us an arched eyebrow and commented vaguely about needing “practice in that area.” My eyes met my husband’s, and we knew: here we are. I only hope I can convey them to him in a way that he will both listen and understand in these next many years. When you are being your genuine self, you are most attractive to the people who will be healthiest for you. If you knew what girls are going through in comparison, you wouldn’t flinch at these small requests. It’s not about the gift itself; it is about the act of giving and about the message that you remember, and you cherish.
I didn’t even know where to begin; it was a new life for me, taking care of a new life. Today, I realized that my firstborn son’s feet are bigger than mine. One of the first revelations I had as a mother was looking into my baby boy’s face and realizing that someday, someone I didn’t know yet was going to love him. Only last week, a video came to light showing Donald Trump bragging about being able to grab women ‘by the pussy’.Now, a further questionable video has emerged in which Trump speaks to a young girl then remarks to camera, ‘I am going to be dating her in 10 years’.The issue ballooned when 2005 video from “Access Hollywood” revealed lewd banter between Trump and entertainment reporter Billy Bush, who has since been suspended by NBC.The GOP candidate has defended his remarks as “locker room banter,” apologizing for his suggestion that “when you’re a star” you can “grab [women] by the p****.” “You can do anything,” as he said in the 2005 tape.
