McCrory calls Trump comments about women 'disgusting'

Posted October 8
Updated October 9

— North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory joined a growing list of Republicans Friday night when he condemned presidential nominee Donald Trump over his lewd comments about women.

"I condemn in the strongest possible terms the comments made by Donald Trump regarding women. I find them disgusting," McCrory said in a statement.

Trump was caught on tape in 2005 making crude comments about a married woman he tried to seduce and what he could do to women because he was "a star."

Trump apologized for his remarks in a video released Saturday morning, but he also called the audio "nothing more than a distraction" and argued that his words were not nearly as egregious as former President Bill Clinton's marital affairs.

McCrory did not say Saturday whether Trump's comments will make him pull support for the Republican nominee's run for the White House.

    And of course McCrory still supports Trump and his sexual assault on women. The culture of rape is a cloud following Trump around. Sickening that a job is more important than upholding decency, and family values. Fire the spineless, weak-kneeded GOP who cannot stand up against sleaze, rude, crude, immoral, indecency...Shall I go on?

    Conservative Christian leaders are morally bankrupt. This man Jesus, do they even respect him? Or are they just the money changers looking to make a buck. Pray to the dollar and throw their daughters to the wolves like Trump.

    Once again you completely ignore all of those deaths but stay laser focused on those 4. Why? Because it's all you have in the whole 8 years of Obama. That's why you guys continue to drag it through the mud over and over.

    And where pray tell was all the hue and cry when Billy Bob Clinton was out and about assaulting/abusing young women? Where was Hillary and her high sounding cries about family values?

    Where is a quote of McCrory or Burr repudiation this vile dawg and denying him support? I wrote Burr about Trump after the disabled reporter. He responded with a form letter. What is more sickening than DJT's privileged, hateful posture is the blind eye our elected officials turn to him. If my employee lied as frequently as Trump, refused to accept responsibility for his or her actions, sexually assaulted others, mocked fellow citizens' appearance, weight, disability, religion, then that person would not be in my employ. Yet he stands to be "hired" in spite of that. Where are our values, people? I didn't mention he had a wife at home, carrying his child, when he said these things. FAMILY VALUES.

    [ quote=16099960]Post by Paul Gallant[/quote] Move on he says. When Hillary acknowledges her responsibility and accountability for those deaths--and doesn't insult the intelligence of the people by trying to blame a video for the attacks--which we all know will never happen.

    OMG you guys will go on about those 4 deaths but completely ignore the 11 embassy attacks during the Bush administration where 70+ people died. That's not even counting all the deaths in the war itself. Move on!!!!!

    He was 59 years old then and is 70 now. People at that age do not change that much. Maybe if it was just from the 80's you'd have a point. But it's not.

    Admittedly Trump has made stupid and insulting statements--but which is to be preferred--making stupid statements or being an acknowledged liar,crook and being responsible for the preventable deaths of. 4 Americans? And people still try to defend her? This nation will survive 8 years of. Obama--but not 4 years of Clinton on top of Obama.
