It was all the way back in January of 2016 when Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted a FOX News story which reported on Germany’s attempt to use signs and cartoons to stop a wave of sexual assaults committed by migrant Muslim men.
Donald Trump, Jr., mocking the absurdity of the report, noted that it is ridiculous that grown men should have to be taught that it’s wrong to sexually assault women.
@Casperventer My bad, I forgot that grown men should have to be taught to not commit sexual assault.

And he’s right, of course. Savages are going to obey “Do Not Rape” signs about as well as violent criminals obey “No Gun Zones” signs. Education isn’t the answer and it won’t make someone’s heart less evil.
Furthermore, as the The Right Scoop reported on Thursday evening, Donald Trump, Jr., was particularly critical of then Republican frontrunner Herman Cain, an outsider who was on his way to becoming the GOP presidential nominee for the 2012 election against Barack Obama.
As you may recall, Herman Cain, ironically now an avid Trump supporter, was accused of having his own sex scandal(s), which eventually led to him dropping out of the race in disgrace.
Commenting on the allegations against Herman Cain, Donald Trump, Jr., opined that “The harassment claim is a tough one to overcome whether it’s true or not.”
@zkanelik4 the harassment claim is a tough one to overcome whether its true or not.

It is a tough one, especially if Herman Cain had been caught on video bragging about it and/or his victims would have come forward with endless interviews in major media speaking about the horror — but in Herman Cain’s case, they actually hadn’t come forward on October 31, 2011, when Trump, Jr., said overcoming the charges would be tough.
It got much tougher for Herman Cain, however, in the coming days. On November 7, 2011, a woman, the first woman, Sharon Bialek, came forward accusing Cain of sexual harassment. On December 1, Cain admitted to paying another woman, Ginger White, who had claimed to have a 13-year affair with Cain, the equivalent of hush money without his wife’s knowledge.
And by December 3, 2011, Herman Cain dropped out of the race for the presidency.
Donald Trump, Jr., went further — even before Cain’s accusers came forward — mocking the GOP frontrunner, writing in a tweet on October 31, 2011, that…
“For Cain, the sexual harassment suit is like being asked if you beat your wife, guilty or not just asking the question creates doubt forever.”
Which, of course, begs the question: Shouldn’t your father, Donald J. Trump, who actually bragged about sexually assaulting women, making unwanted sexual advances against women — “grabbing them by the pussy” and getting away with it because of his power, fortune and celebrity status, be held to the same standard as Herman Cain, especially now that multiple women have come forward, taking great risks to accuse someone as powerful as your father?
As you might expect, Donald Trump, Jr., now is singing a completely different tune, now what his father is facing similar sex scandals. Trump Jr., is now claiming that his father bragging about groping women “makes him a human” when what he should be saying is that it makes him an animal. And of course, he is attempting to use the “everybody does it” excuse, trying to conflate “off-color language” with what his father was saying in the infamous Trump Tape, throwing all men under the bus, as if all men brag about being able to get away with sexual assault because of their celebrity status.
As Politico reported from a radio interview Trump, Jr. did on Charlotte radio station WBT:
“I’ve had conversations like that with plenty of people where people use language off color. They’re talking, two guys, amongst themselves. I’ve seen it time and time again. I think it makes him a human,” Donald Jr. said in a clip first reported by CNN. “I think it makes him a normal person, not a political robot. He hasn’t spent his whole life waiting for this moment to run for the presidency.”
He repeated: “I think it means that he’s a human being that he’s a regular person like everyone else. I think that’s what endeared him to the American public.”
No. Bragging about making unwanted sexual advances and getting away with it because of his celebrity status makes your father a perverted pig, which in essence is how Republicans described another serial womanizer, Bill Clinton, back in the days when Democrats argued to the death that “character doesn’t matter.” Now Republicans are making that same argument to save your father’s skin?
Since it’s not Bill Clinton or Herman Cain, we’re supposed to lower our standards because it’s your father who now has a magic “R” next to his name? I don’t think so.
