Senators and other GOP leaders condemn Trump: You ‘should drop out’

In the first presidential debate, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had the soundbite of the evening when she referenced Alicia Machado, the Miss Universe winner of a pageant owned by Donald Trump, and the insulting names the billionaire businessman made about the Venezuelan woman’s weight.

 

But the latest Trump incident might be more difficult for him to come back from. Trump uses lewd terms to describe seducing and non-consensually groping a married woman in a video with entertainment reporter Billy Bush from 2005 posted Friday afternoon by The Washington Post. The married woman was subsequently identified by entertainment program “Access Hollywood” as former host Nancy O’Dell.

 

The fallout was swift for Trump, with Bush and many high-level Republicans rushing to condemn his comments hours later. CNN even reported that there were calls for him to drop out of the race, and have his running mate, Mike Pence, become the nominee.
