Red State Update on latest Trump scandals

Jackie Broyles is disgusted by Trump, and even Dunlap is offended.


A couple of footnotes might be in order to clarify possibly obscure references to people with actual lives who might not keep up with all the political minutiae:

  • Tic Tac: Trump mentioned eating a Tic Tac before grabbing a woman and kissing her. The Tic Tac USA, the company behind Tic Tac, made it clear in a Tweet that it wants nothing to do with Trump or his attitude toward women. Previously Skittles distanced itself from Donald Trump Jr’s likening refugees to Skittles with poisonous ones mixed in.
  • The Central Park Five were a group of teenagers (the oldest 16, four of them black and one Hispanic) who confessed to and were convicted of brutalizing and raping a jogger in Central Park in 1989, leaving her in a coma. After having served years in prison the five were exonerated of the crime in 2002 when DNA evidence pointed to another man (also a juvenile at the time, and serving a life sentence as a serial rapist), who also confessed. Back in 1989 Trump took out a full-page ad in The New York Daily News demanding that the five teenagers be executed, and a couple of days ago Trump indicated he still thinks they were guilty.
