Saturday Reads

It was Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell who was the main subject of Donald Trump's embarrassing comments on the now-infamous video.

Soap opera actress Arianne Zucker also got embarrassed by Trump in that video.


The presidential election is over for all intents and purposes according to former GOP head Michael Steele. Another wonders whether the party will even be around in 20 years.

Arnold Schwarzenegger will not vote for Trump.

Neither will John McCain or his wife Cindy.

In a spectacular non-endorsement for president, the Mormon-run Desert News calls on Donald Trump to resign.

The newspaper does not do presidential endorsements, but it decided to make a clear non-endorsement:

For 80 years, the Deseret News has not entered into the troubled waters of presidential endorsement. We are neutral on matters of partisan politics. We do, however, feel a duty to speak clearly on issues that affect the well-being and morals of the nation.

Accordingly, today we call on Donald Trump to step down from his pursuit of the American presidency.

In democratic elections, ideas have consequences, leadership matters and character counts.

The idea that women secretly welcome the unbridled and aggressive sexual advances of powerful men has led to the mistreatment, sorrow and subjugation of countless women for far too much of human history.

It won't happen, of course.

Poor Melania Trump, who forgave her husband for his misogynist remarks, was still a target of them.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called his then-pregnant wife, Melania Trump, a “monster” during an appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show in 2005.

He also described his wife as a “blimp” during the interview, which apparently took place just months after Trump had made lewd comments about groping women and pursing a married woman. He had married Melania, his third wife, earlier that year.

“You know, they just blow up, right?” Trump said of his pregnant wife in December 2005, according to a report by SF Gate.

“Like a blimp — in the right places. In her case, the right places. I mean she really has become a monster — in all the right places,” Trump told Stern. “I mean monster in the most positive way. She has gotten very, very large — in all the right places.”


Even Tic Tac denounces Trump's remarks:

“Tic Tac respects all women,” the company said in a Twitter post on Saturday. “We find the recent statements and behavior completely inappropriate and unacceptable.”

I swear you can't make this shit up:

In a turn of poetic politics, Mike Pence told his running mate, Donald Trump, he was on his own for the next 48 hours, to clean up his own PR nightmare. Instead, Pence hopped on a plane and headed to Beechwood, Rhode Island for a fundraiser in the mansion of John Jacob Astor, who died on the Titanic in 1912.
