But what about all those horrible things he’s said SINCE becoming a politician? Via Mediaite:
During an interview with Wisconsin talk radio host Charles Sykes, presidential candidate Donald Trump excused his history of sexist comments by saying he didn’t plan to run for office at the time.
“I’ve been a person that’s been in the entertainment business and a very big person in business and I’ve been quoted over the years by everybody. I became a celebrity,” he argued. “Are the rules different for celebrities?” Sykes pressed. “Are celebrities allowed to insult women?”
“Well the rules aren’t different, but I never thought I would run for office,” Trump said. “And many people, Howard Stern would interview me and everybody would be having fun, and the women would be laughing.”
