Melania Trump’s defense of her husband is that he is a 70-year-old man-child that got led around by Billy Bush. This is not the picture of a future commander-in-chief.
Melania Trump says her husband was egged on by Billy Bush when he made sexually aggressive remarks in a 2005 tape https://t.co/p0mCRSCTRx

CNN reported on Anderson Cooper’s interview with Mrs. Trump:
“I said to my husband that, you know, the language was inappropriate. It’s not acceptable. And I was surprised, because that is not the man that I know,” the wife of the Republican presidential nominee said in an exclusive interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, which is set to air at 8 p.m. ET Monday.
“And as you can see from the tape, the cameras were not on — it was only a mic. And I wonder if they even knew that the mic was on,” she said, referring to Trump and NBC’s “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush.
She said they were engaged in “boy talk, and he was led on — like, egged on — from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.”
According to Melania Trump, her husband is either a sexual predator who bragged about assaulting women or he is a weak minded buffoon who only bragged about sexually assaulting women to impress Access Hollywood host Billy Bush.
Neither one of these options screams future President Of The United States.
One suspects that the Trump’s have moved beyond trying to save what increasingly looks like a doomed presidential campaign, and are now trying to save their brand so that they still have a business left to go back to after the election ends.
The Trump campaign has managed to do the impossible. They have managed to make Donald Trump look even more incompetent and unfit for the White House.
