The 2005 conversation between Donald Trump and Billy Bush won’t die down anytime soon. People have been able to dig up all kinds of disturbing dirt on the Republican presidential nominee but, his supporters continue to make excuses for him, and they refuse to be outraged.
Not only do Trump supporters make all of the excuses in the world, they love to pin the blame on others or divert attention to other’s controversy to take the heat off of Trump.
One Trump surrogate made a fool of herself by trying to say Hillary Clinton supporting Beyonce and her “Formation” lyrics was the same as Trumps disturbing comments towards women.
Next, the national spokesperson for the Trump campaign, Katrina Pierson, tried to excuse Trump’s offensive comments and blame it all on Hip Hop music.
“This rape culture is purported by none other than the entertainment industry, none other than Hip Hop music, which you can hear on local radio stations,” she said.
Trump has since dismissed his distasteful comments as “locker room talk,” however political commentator Angela Rye, pointed out other examples of Trump stating the same feelings towards women as well as the lawsuits and accusations of sexual harassment and discrimination against him.
Nice try Pierson. Even though music lyrics across all genres are tough to accept at times, these music artists also aren’t running for President of the United States.
