Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani comes to Donald’s aid. Giuliani told CNN Jake tapper ” men at time talk like that“
Giuliani was given the job to preform damage control for the Trump campaign after recording of Trump speaking on women in a manner not fit for a potential commander in chief surfaced a few days ago.
Giuliani did say that what was heard on recording of Trump was a “horrible remark…… remarks you certainly don’t want to hear from anyone, much less a presidential candidate.”
The former Mayor also said “I think he made a full apology for it. He probably is going to do it again tonight.”
Giuliani was also asked by CNN’S Jake TAPPER if he knew of someone whom Trump had groped
In which his response was, “First of all, I don’t know that he did it to anyone. This is talk, and gosh almighty, he who hasn’t sinned, throw the first stone here…….. men at times talk like that. Not all men, but men do. He was wrong for doing it. I am not justifying it. I believe it’s wrong. I know he [Trump] believes it’s wrong. I believe this is not the man we’re talking about today.”
In fact Guiliani told tapper Trump’s apology was sincere. And that he [guiliani] knew this “from talking to him that he [Trump] genuinely feels very sorry about this, and it’s certainly not the views he holds today”
The former New York City Mayor also said that even though “Republicans pulled their support for Trump, he is not going to drop out,”
“He is going to apologize for what he did. He is going to explain to people that that’s not who he is today”,stated Giuliani. And that “the American people are fair and decent people, and when someone ask for forgiveness, they usually give it.”
“Tapper refused to accept” Trump comments in regards to groping women as being normal guy talk.
“I will gladly tell you Mr. Mayor, I have never said that….I have never done that; I’m happy to throw a stone. I don’t know any man- I have been in locker rooms, I’ve never heard any man brag about being able to maul women because they get away with it, never.”
By the looks on Giuliani’s face he seemed to be surprised and was at a lost for words taking up for the GOP nominee.
Tapper told Giuliani Trump was “talking about actions that are sexual assault and he was 59 or 60 years old when he [Trump] said it……wasn’t something he said when he was 18 years old.”
Further more, Tapper add it that Trump “was talking about a feeling of entitlement; Because he’s a star he can go up to women and grab them by the vaginas and it’s okay, he won’t get in trouble for it…….It’s really offensive on a basic human level.”
