After spending months attacking the “biased” mainstream media, it is interesting that Donald Trump dispatched his wife, Melania, to do a one on one interview with Anderson Cooper of CNN.
I guess he knows where the audience is.
Melania Trump says her husband was “egged on” in the 2005 tape in which he made lewd comments about his own sexually aggressive behavior toward women — remarks she says were “boy talk.”
“I said to my husband that, you know, the language was inappropriate. It’s not acceptable. And I was surprised, because that is not the man that I know,” the wife of the Republican presidential nominee said in an exclusive interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, which is set to air at 8 p.m. ET Monday.
“And as you can see from the tape, the cameras were not on — it was only a mic. And I wonder if they even knew that the mic was on,” she said, referring to Trump and NBC’s “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush. She said they were engaged in “boy talk, and he was led on — like, egged on — from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.”
I’m not sure exactly how to take that “egged on” comment. Does that mean that a 59 year old Donald Trump was too weak willed to be his own man? That Billy Bush was the “alpha” and Trump the “beta?”
If you can’t handle yourself against the mental machinations of Billy Bush, how are you going to stand up to the leaders of foreign nations?
