It seems there's a lot of people out there who just can't fathom the possibility that the act you so eloquently describe can be consensual and that Trump was probably referring to it as well.
But Victorian prudishness is making a comeback in the guise of moral repugnancy, in the guise of oh so very virtuous empathy for the women who, for whatever circumstance, may very well want their vaginas grabbed with all the verve a man can muster.
They may want their vaginas grabbed, but the new moralists are here to civilize them anyway.
as a public representative, a large part of your job is simply optics. this is why people constantly give Trump shit. they think he is supposed to "stand" for all US citizens. so really, that is the area where this is a massive failure.
interesting to watch the Both Sidesing happen tho. it is funny, leftists think they are the only ones with a moral compass, yet the moment something like this happens, they are quick to point to the sins of others, admitting they are just as full of shit as anyone.
The thing with the left is it doesn't really matter how long it has been since you were unwoke, as long as you have enough credit with the team, you can apologize and keep fighting for the cause and it's merely handwaved away as 'starting a conversation'. Shit Sarah Silverman outright lied about being paid less for a set because of her vagina, and when the club owner publicly called her out, she's like my bad good thing it started a conversation - no one cares really, because she's on the correct team.
If you are an unknown, or do not have sufficient credit, shows of unwokeness are a mark against your character and make you unwelcome and unlikely to change your views even after apology, like Mr. Shane Gillis. But enough credit? You can don black face like Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Kimmel, Trudeau, and it's all good man.
Y’all remember like a year ago when Megyn Kelly was talking about blackface on some morning show and she said it was not as big a deal when where she grew up and she was cancelled it ended her career and they fired her and had to pay a huge fee for it?
If only she decided to go into politics she could have gotten a free pass. Instead she was involved with the serious world of morning tv
