Trump on His Sexist Comments: Women Liked It

Donald Trump’s newest excuse for his long history of sexist comments toward women: Hey, the women were laughing. Questioned by talk-radio host Charlie Sykes about the many conservative women who say they are offended by the GOP presidential frontrunner’s treatment of women, Trump reiterated his campaign’s claim that he made such offending comments as “an entertainer.” Unconvinced, Sykes asked whether Trump thinks different rules apply for celebrities compared to politicians. “Well, the rules aren’t different, but I never thought I would run for office,” Trump said. “And many people—Howard Stern would interview me and everybody would be having fun, and the women would be laughing.”
