And yet once again, it is beyond someone's ability to acknowledge that their candidate has been shown to be hypocritical. In this case for how they handled the issue of accusations of rape and sexual harassment. Hillary attempted to discredit Bill's accusers for purposes of political expediency. It is a matter of public record, but many here won't go near it. Their only defense is that Trump is much worse.
Does that sound like much of defense? Would that work in a court of law? "Well your honor, much worse crimes were committed on the day by client robbed someone. There were several homicides that day, so I hope you will consider that in your sentencing, or even forget it altogether." And then, of course, anyone who points out this hypocrisy is then tagged one of the usual labels: apologist, right wing extremest. This is political correctness run amok. This is what gives rise to someone like Trump who will often tell it like it is. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <salsunshineiniowa@...> wrote : I’d say the stain has been there on anybody who defended this pile of human waste at all after the mocking-the-disabled-reporter scenario. I realize what he did, disgusting as it was, wasn’t illegal. It simply threw into stark relief that Trump is not “normal” in any sense, doesn’t have the normal empathy for his fellow humans most of us have, empathy for anyone other than his children, and I’m not even so sure about them. Certainly it doesn’t exist for anyone else in his family (For anyone who needs further proof of this, look up what he did to his great nephew who was born with serious disabilities). So IMO that ship sailed long ago. Anyone still defending him after this latest debacle must agree with him on some level, or their hatred of Hillary runs so deep they can no longer think rationally. For anyone who STILL doesn’t “get it” this is NOT the lesser of two evils meme so many of you like to trot out, this IS evil, staring you right in the face. How does it look? There is no low that is too low for the apologists here. Sal On Oct 7, 2016, at 9:55 PM, authfriend@... mailto:authfriend@...

In many if not most states, kissing someone or touching their genital area without their consent is sexual battery, punishable by jail time. The flaccidity of your attempted defense of the presidential candidate you support would be hilarious if it weren't such a vile manifestation of rape culture. You can't come back from this. It's a permanent stain on your character. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <noozguru@...> wrote : And we have had no saints as President.
