I'm puzzled that Trump considers Bill Clinton to be the most sexually abusive president ever. Just where on the spectrum would he place John F Kennedy?
You would have to substantially modify the meaning of "sexually abusive" to include Kennedy in this conversation. He did have numerous affairs while married before and during his presidency so he was obviously an adulterer. These women were adults and chose to be with him and some of them were well-known, famous in their own right.

Other presidents who had affairs include at least, Thomas Jefferson, Warren Harding. Eisenhower, Lyin' Lyndon Johnson, Bush Sr. in addition to Clinton. Undoubtedly more as indicated above, these activities were rarely disclosed publicly in the past.

It seems we often have irrational expectations of people, especially leaders, and that is an order of magnitude amplified when Sex is in the mix. When people are horrified by Presidential "indiscretions", I tend to ask them "What sort of men do you suppose aspire to be and are qualified to be a Leader?" (I'd include women but I don't presume to speak for them). I dislike and distrust Trump but I don't find his (assumed) private sexual remarks all that disturbing considering I've actually overheard women's (assumed private) conversations in public places. However if he actually did have sex with a 13 year old, especially against her will, he should be judged just like any other sexual predator though I'd be very surprised if that would happen. He'd likely get away with settling out of court.

Personally I don't care about other people's sexual proclivities nor marital relations, including leaders, as long as they respect the Law and do their job.

When you figure in sexual rudeness and crudeness with batshit crazy.

I find it a wonderment when I hear there are still undecided voters.

Anyhows. Today was the last day to register to vote in my State.

My understanding is that for a lot of people, the problem wasn't (only) that Trump's comments were lewd, crude and gross. The (bigger) problem is that he was talking about something that wasn't consensual.

It is going around certain websites that it was " the republican elite " that dug up and made public Mr. Trump's raunchy sexual remarks; if that is true then he has every right to be mad!!

Well if they are trying to get him out, they are clearing doing it wrong. At this point they may as well just stay put and not do anything, lest they make him a martyr.

I still like the idea that the establishment has absolutely no control over him, but then again his own ties to the Clintons are being overlooked.

I just want this all the be over already so that the rest of the world can go back to laughing at us for other things, like our shitty education and healthcare system.

I've been thinking for months that one song in particular reminds me of Trump supporters. This one:

This article is by the most reliable prognosticator in politics - Nate Silver.

But while we’re in something of a wait-and-see mode, one demographic split caught my eye. That was from a Public Religion Research Institute poll conducted on behalf of The Atlantic. It showed a massive gender split, with Clinton trailing Trump by 11 percentage points among men but leading him by 33 points among women.
The female vote could be disastrous for Chump, and I have a suspicion that many women in Republican households will keep silent while their spouse is mouthing off about Trump, and then pull the lever for Hillary when in the privacy of the voting booth.

Okay, I think I just saw the most ridiculous complaint of the entire election:

Millions Watch Second Presidential Debate On Illegal Streams

This is more ridiculous than Alex Jones complaining that Obama and Hillary are literally demons.

TxLonghorn: I'm pretty this forum doesn't support embedded graphics.
