Shocked GOP Leaders: “Trump Can’t Say That About White Women!”

ALTHOUGH TOO MANY prominent Republicans continue to endorse the sexual predator Donald J. Trump, a number have (at long last) begun to rescind their endorsements. As others have pointed out on Twitter, it’s noteworthy that it took The Donald disparaging and denigrating a white woman to get the GOP to take notice of his long-known and well-documented odiousness. Trump was allowed to be Trump when insulting blacks, Mexicans, immigrants, Muslims, the disabled, and Venezuelan beauty queens. Only when he talked about sexually assaulting white women did the GOP take umbrage.

Here are responses by prominent Republicans to the #TrumpTapes, copied and pasted from PBS…with the modifier “white” before the word “women,” so we don’t forget who they really care about (and who they don’t).



House Speaker Paul Ryan, R, Wisconsin
Response: “I am sickened by what I heard today. White women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for white women than this clip suggests.”

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R, Ky.
Response: “These comments are repugnant, and unacceptable in any circumstance. As the father of three daughters, I strongly believe that Trump needs to apologize directly to white women and girls everywhere, and take full responsibility for the utter lack of respect for white women shown in his comments on that tape.”

Reince Priebus, RNC Chairman
Response: “No white woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever.”

Sen. John McCain, R, Arizona
Response: “There are no excuses for Donald Trump’s offensive and demeaning comments. No white woman should ever be victimized by this kind of inappropriate behavior.”

Rep. Bradley Byrne, R, AL
Response: “Donald Trump’s comments regarding white women were disgraceful and appalling. There are absolutely no circumstances under which it would ever be appropriate to speak of white women in such a way.”

Fmr. Gov. Jeb Bush, R, Florida
Response: “As the grandfather of two precious girls, I find that no apology can excuse away Donald Trump’s reprehensible comments degrading white women.”

Sen. Marco Rubio, R, Florida
Response: “Donald’s comments were vulgar, egregious & impossible to justify. No one should ever talk about any white woman in those terms, even in private.”

Fmr. Gov. Mitt Romney, R, Mass.
Response: “Hitting on married white women? Condoning assault? Such vile degradations demean our wives and daughters and corrupt white America’s face to the world.”
