Political hypocrisy at its best...

So Trump is an attention whore who doesn't give a fuck about politics any farther than it keeps his name in the news. And I'm not trying to belittle rape... But it's extremely amusing that while the Left is jumping on Trump for an allegation his ex-wife made 20 years ago in a book (and has since recinded), they have no issue with multiple accusations against Bill Clinton for the same.

Politics is very much a dpectator sport...

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may have raped his ex-wife Ivana Trump, according to a 1993 biography of the real estate mogul uncovered by The Daily Beast. Trump's attorney on Monday denied the allegation, claiming “you cannot rape your spouse.”

“You’re talking about the front-runner for the GOP, presidential candidate, as well as private individual, who never raped anybody," Michael Cohen, the Trump Organization’s special counsel, told The Daily Beast. "And, of course, understand that by the very definition, you can’t rape your spouse.”

The biography, Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, by Harry Hurt III, details a 1989 incident in which Trump reportedly confronted his then-wife Ivana, pulling out clumps of her hair and sexually assaulting her. She characterized the incident as rape during the couple’s divorce proceedings in the early 1990s and said she felt “violated,” according to legal documents cited by The Daily Beast.

Hurt's book includes a "Notice to Reader" pasted on the flyleaf -- a statement by Ivana Trump saying she didn't mean it when she testified Trump had raped her. "I do not want the press or media to misconstrue any of the facts," she wrote. The couple divorced in 1992.

Trump denied the allegation when the biography was released, calling the author “a guy without much talent. He is a guy that is an unattractive guy who is a vindictive and jealous person.”

Cohen said Monday that Ivana Trump was not raped “in its literal sense.”

“She felt raped emotionally,” he said. “She was not referring to it [as] a criminal matter, and not in its literal sense, though there’s many literal senses to the word.”
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who has been outspoken against sexual assault in the military and on college campuses, quickly weighed in on Twitter, criticizing Trump's lawyer for not knowing "that rape is rape."

Trump, a real estate mogul, has made numerous offensive comments about rape, most notably when he kicked off his presidential campaign last month and alleged that undocumented Mexican immigrants are “rapists.”

UPDATE -- 7/28: ?CNN reports Ivana Trump is walking back her comments in a statement.

"I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit. Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president," Ivana Trump said in a statement obtained by CNN, whose authenticity the Trump campaign verified. Phone Post 3.0

You really don't need to dig for reasons to not vote for him.

He's happy to spew as many as you can handle at any time.
