Eric Trump, son of the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, made a stop at the campaign’s Denver, Colorado office on Monday to defend his father’s vulgar conversation with television host Billy Bush about sexually assaulting women.
Not only did the younger Trump continue to use the “locker room banter” excuse, but he also claims that it’s what happens when two alpha personalities get together. Then tried to blame the Clintons for the controversy.
According to the Gazette, Eric Trump blames the Clinton campaign for the leaked 2005 tape, “I think that’s Hillary going low. I think you’ve seen that for a long time. She’ll dig out dirt on someone from 15 years ago when someone is in entertainment.”
Trump also said, “And, listen, my father apologized for it. He was right to apologize for it, and I’m glad he apologized for it. At the same time, if you look at her track record with women, it’s horrible. It’s absolutely horrible.”
He also told the office staff, “I think sometimes when guys are together they get carried away, and sometimes that’s what happens when alpha personalities are in the same presence,” on why his father told Billy Bush about grabbing women by the “pu**y.”
Trump’s defense is that it’s normal for two big wigs to boast about sexually harassing other women, which also entitles them to groping as well.
