Amazingly, this occurs on the same day our President signs, The Sexual Assault Survivors’ Rights Act, how Ironic is that?

TALK ABOUT AN OCTOBER SURPRISE, and no it wasn't Donald Trump's taxes being leaked, or the revelation that Donald hasn't paid any taxes, possibly ever. Or That Donald got repeated financial help in the millions by his father every time it seemed like the end was near for his charade. But the big surprise was something that Donald said was released, and he actually technically apologized, twice! Or at least gave a semblance of one with a few caveats added to piss people off. Seems for those who were offended, he apologizes, I guess the rest of us, can eat shit and die. Well, after asking the terminally ill for their vote, to try to stay alive long enough to cast their ballot for him maybe this was a step up? 

"I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… When You’re a Star…You Can Do Anything’ to Women" - Donald Trump
I find it interesting, as todays 'scandal' hit the airwaves how the various news outlets, discussed Trump's vulgar  'private' conversation with Billy Bush from Access Hollywood fame. The Washington Post announced that they were releasing the video and CNN I think was the first to report the "bombshell news online, and immediately jumped on it as the straw that broke the camel's back. Almost instantly wondering out loud if this would force Donald to quit the race. MSNBC at first, mostly discussed Hurricane Matthew and its continuous approach and potential devastation. I guess CNN had a head start, but once there coverage began, it was full force to the middle of the night, and honestly I couldn't wipe the smile off of my face. Yes, finally something Donald Trump said or done had possibly been the last straw. Fox Faux News, for the most part reported about the storm, and when they broke away the other stories were about Wikileaks release of Hillary Clinton sacred speeches. That said, It has yet to be confirmed if these are real yet, but FOX is pushing it as big. Also according to them, a bunch of old Hillary Clinton emails are possibly being reclassified.  
Eventually even they seemed to talk about it, but what little I saw, they seemed to make light of it, and segway to something Hillary might have done or might have said. Using possible things that either Hillary or Bill Clinton might have done as excuses for what Trump said or bragged about doing. Thats like believing a murderer because they think other people could kill someone, even if that person had never thought of it themselves or said it or ever would. Granted I could be wrong about FOX, and missed reports that aired when I was on the other channels. But, this seems to be their Modus Operandi, their M O, if theres an issue that goes against their talking points, they ignore it. That is until they concoct a reasonable excuse to use as their talking point. And as if, by magic, today when I witnessed FOX talking about it, I heard the usual, what Donald said wasn't that bad, I mean Hillary and Bill probably say things just as bad or worse' I wish I had videotaped the conversation, so I'm paraphrasing, but that was basically it in a nutshell.
Corey Lewandowski was being interviewed on CNN, and kind of admitted that what Donald Trump was of course indefensible, but America knows they aren't electing a "Boy Scott" so it probably doesn't really matter. Well, what can you expect from a  paid off double agent talking head.
"We aren't choosing a Sunday school teacher here, and I want to be very clear about this"-- we are electing a leader to the free world, We aren't not electing a Sunday school teacher" Corey Lewandowski
That was quick, the first shoe has dropped already. I have a feeling the floodgates are about to burst. On Saturday, Trump was supposed to share a stage with Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan for the first time to help him win the White House. Well, he has now been disinvited, instead, his lying running mate, Mike Pence will be there. I guess being a lying douche bag isn't as bad as being a sexist pig. 
Oh, I've got a question? Did you feel the Earth move? Did your stomach go giddy up for a second on Friday? Did you feel like something out of the ordinary occurred? Well, Donald in his own special way 'apologized' for something. Mind you this wasn't exactly the perfect statement of apology, but at least I think this was the first time the man has actually uttered the 'apology' itself, when his campaign came out with a statement.
"This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course - not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended," - Donald Trump
Yup, don't we feel better? Aren't we relieved? I mean if I was offended by anything he said, Donald just gave me permission. I guess we can go back to discussing Hillary's missing emails. Well a little past Midnight, as MSNBC has been reporting, Donald Trump came out with a 90 second video. Seems all day after the Access Hollywood video was released, the Trump campaign, all the big shots was holed up at Trump Tower, trying to figure out how to solve a problem like Maria… I'm sorry, what I meant to write, how to solve Donald's latest revelation. Which did turn out to be a video. A close up shot of Donald sitting at a table, a night shot of a Metropolis behind him. He actually looked like he was about to pitch penis enlargement device or perhaps another real estate scam. But instead he actually, sonic boom, apologized. 
"I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be a person I’m not,” Trump said. “I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more-than-a-decade-old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize. -- I have gotten to know the great people of our country, and I've been humbled by the faith they placed in me. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never let you down.” - Donald Trump
I should mention, like an infomercial, Donald Trump was reading off a teleprompter. So honestly was this an apology from his heart? Was he saying things he believes or did someone else write the words for him to read, and he was pitching another con. Sadly right after this second attempted Heil Mary pass of the day, right afterwards, he threw away his apology by basically disregarding what he had read. Instead of saying good night, Donald decided to attack Hillary Clinton for her actions as Secretary of State, and every other thing he blames her for  
"Lets be honest, we're living in the real world this is nothing more then a distraction from the important issues we are facing today… " - Donald Trump
Sorry I couldn't transpose his lies, I won't transpose the same bullshit he's told for a year and a half anymore. So if you want to see his entire comment, find it online, sorry. Anyway, he then gave us a preview of what he's gonna throw out on Sunday night's debate. Sadly I guess this means he hasn't quit the race just yet. Bummer. All I can say is Hillary better wear a raincoat and combat boats cause the shit's hitting the fan big time. If he's going down, Donald's taking her down with him. 
"I've said some foolish things, but there's a big difference between the words and actions of other people. Bill Clinton has actually abused women, and Hillary had bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss more in the coming days. See you at the debate on Sunday." - Donald Trump
Shoe number two just dropped! Before Donald's big 'sorry' earlier in the day, Utah Congressman Republican Jason Chaffetz, was interviewed on Fox 13 News at Nine Friday and announced he was withdrawing his endorsement for Donald Trump. Seems something finally was too far even for this staunch conservative. Donald making vulgar remarks in 2005 captured on video, discussing his groping and kissing of women without their consent in the past, which is why he said he's had it. Now in regards to Trump's half hearted tweet: 
"I’m out." Jason Chaffetz
Well thats one! He also said Trump’s response to the criticism was an apology for getting caught, not an apology for his behavior. In other words, he didn't buy his lie.
"I think the message of Donald Trump is a good one, but if this is the way he acts… And that apology, that was no apology. That was an apology for getting caught, that was not an apology for the behavior." - Jason Chaffetz
I must mention, Jason Chaffetz was interviewed live, right after Donald Trump's mea culpa, on Lawrence O'Donnell. MSNBC was broadcasting live, for what obviously they believed was a pretty extraordinary news event. So having this name to appear on their show was big, and it seems Donald's apology, the supposed real one, didn't work for him either! The Congressman simply, repeated his announcement, Donald "I'm out". Along with Jason, most of the prominent Republicans have either asked him to drop out of the race or they condemn what he said. 
I guess we shall see what the fall out of Friday's bombshell will mean one way or the other pretty soon. I mean we are less then seven weeks to election day what else could happen? Maybe I shouldn't ask? After Trump's mea culpa yesterday, we know to expect something big at the debate. But really, maybe Donald was lying as usual and instead he actually acts and responds like an adult. If his epiphany was real, and his eyes have been opened when he was fully revealed to be the pig we always expected him to be. Just wondering how the current Mrs. Donald J. Trump is doing, having learned as we all have her husbands true self. I mean he was 8 months a newlywed with her, and he was discussing cheating with other woman. Me thinks if nothing else, his marriage might be over or least I see lots of marriage counseling in his future. Now about those taxes? 

Just one man's opinion
