WASHINGTON TIMES
— GOP women stand by Trump, blast those jumping ship over ‘antique locker-room talk’ – Ralph Z. Hallow
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/oct/9/republican-women-stand-by-donald-trump-blast-those/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Demetra DeMonte, an RNC member from Illinois and former national secretary of the RNC, led off the female Trump brigade’s counterattack by dispatching a letter to the other 167 RNC members reasserting her support for Mr. Trump. “Donald J. Trump is not going to step down — nor should he,” Mrs. DeMonte wrote. “He is our lawfully elected nominee.” She argued that although she does not condone the “inappropriate language” he had used while talking with then “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush in 2005, unaware that the microphones they were wearing were recording their sex talk about women, the billionaire developer was “not the first nor will he be the last to utter foul language in the privacy of their home or locker rooms.” . . . Mrs. DeMonte, the Illinois RNC member, countered, said that Mrs. Clinton’s comments Saturday that she was disgusted by her opponent’s language was like the Captain Renault in “Casablanca” claiming that he is “shocked, shocked” that gambling is going on in Rick’s Cafe. “Hillary,” Mrs. DeMonte said, is “the consummate hypocrite, who while first lady barraged her own Secret Service detail with unspeakably foul language — the very same men who put their lives on the line for hers. Such hypocrisy!” . . . Mrs. DeMonte said party leaders should compare the two candidates’ full records in the wake of the latest controversy. “Mr. Trump may be guilty of uttering foul language — but Hillary is guilty of committing foul deeds, deeds, if she were anyone else, would have resulted in prison time,” Mrs. DeMonte said, citing the deletion of “thousands of documents which she knew was illegal” and refusing “multiple cries for help from our ambassador that resulted in his murder, along with three brave Americans” in Benghazi, Libya. Mrs. DeMonte averred that Mrs. Clinton as a lawyer “laughed when she got off a rapist of a 12-year-old girl — while knowing all along her client was guilty of rape. That is on tape, too.” Why, she asked don’t the news media “play that audio?”)
