My husband, ten years ago, was recorded saying that he liked to sexually abuse women, and could get away with it because he was rich.
This is nothing like the man I know. After all, in those days he was just acting like an easily-led, boastful teenager. Whereas he is now 10 years older. Which must make him at least - what - 23?
The fact that all those women came forward, saying he did exactly the sort of things he said he did is a complete coincidence.
That he could be led to say stupid things by somebody so clever and devious as the least-bright member of the Bush family proves that he is easily led, and keen to impress more powerful personalities than himself. So none of this is his fault.
I'm sure there is no chance of him coming up against strong, devious personalities if he is President of the United States. So of course he should have the job.
