Trump Camp Blames Hip Hop for Donald Trump’s Mouth


It’s Rick Ross’ Fault. In a bizarre conversation on CNN that quickly spun out of control, Katrina Pierson, a Donald Trump campaign spokesperson, blamed music for Donald Trump saying something unacceptable about his conduct around women in 2005.

The audio of Trump’s sexually aggressive comments were captured on a Access Hollywood segment from 2005 and made national news on October 7th. During an on-air back and fourth on October 11, Pierson, who has had many dippy moments on television before, claimed that she found it, “rich that we have Democrats and the left talking about rape culture when they’re the ones backed fully by Hollywood.”

“This rape culture is purported by none other that the entertainment industry, none other than hip hop music which you can hear on local radio stations,” she said with a straight face,” Pierson added. Pierson appeared to have forgotten that Trump has already apologized for the statements made back in 2005. Instead of referring to the apology and moving on she instead went off into a tangent choosing an argument that made no rational sense.  The moment rivals another recent low point for the Trump spokesperson when her response was “so what they’re Muslim” when challenged on Donald Trump’s policy to ban all member of the faith from the U.S.

But 28 days to election day the Trump campaign appears to be in deep denial about the state of play.  With Republicans in the House and Senate in a panic because of how the latest Trump controversy will impact them at the polls, Speaker Paul Ryan has told House Republicans it’s every man for themselves.
