    I'll bet Hillary, and friends couldn't wait to get that Billy Bush open mic gaffe out on Trump? It is bad, and even inexcusable, but for me, even with the baggage he keeps adding on to his wagon, he looks a whole lot better than Hillary. At least, he didn't lie to God Star parents about how their sons died? At least, he didn't trash women who claimed her spouse raped and attacked them sexually! At least, he didn't erase 33,000 emails; had an illegal email server set up in the basement bathroom of his IT person; and at least he didn't lie about all the scandals stuff that surrounded the emails and Benghazie!

    Comparing Trump to Clinton is like comparing bad to bad, but at least he doesn't lie and sneak around and act like it is okay!

    So do you think this latest scandal will impair Trump's bid for the WH? I know this coming debate will be interesting. I only hope he has learned to pivot and stick with the substance that Americans need to hear!

    We already know that as much made up hyperbole that y'all can come up with on Hillary Clinton, nothing that the vile, disgusting guy on the other side does will ever be enough to make you think the anti-Christ Trump is worse. That's politics. Give an account to God.

    1.) It's not a "gaffe." It is an expression of who he was in 2005. Words reveal character. He has not given me any reason to think he has changed since then.
    2.) He described it as "locker room talk." Apparently I don't hang out in the same locker rooms as Trump. I have heard plenty of sexually-explicit and demeaning things about women in locker rooms, but I did not participate in the conversation and I noted to myself that I don't want to have any dealings with those sorts of people.
    3.) Not sure the Clinton campaign is behind this. It only serves to bring Bill Clinton's vile behavior into public discourse, front and center. I don't want Bill Clinton in the White House with time on his hands because of his past behavior. But that's better than a President who is a sexual predator. (Please note that I have never voted for a Clinton in my life and I wanted Bill Clinton out of office ASAP for his behavior in the 1990s.)

    Neither looks good.

    He hasn't been in that position yet. Based on his proclivity to lie about everything, I don't expect him to tell the truth.

    No, he has trashed women personally and apparently sexually assaulted at least one or two himself. I can understand how someone might be deceived by (or in denial about) their husband and defend him out of loyalty, but I don't understand the mindset of a sexual predator.

    He's lied about all kinds of things... and where are those tax returns we have been promised? That looks like a big lie too.

    No, he blatantly lies and acts boorishly and people seem to think its okay.

    Don't know. I do know that Christians who support him are going to have a hard time explaining themselves to non-Christians, and possibly to the Lord.

    Actually, there are only two who have a real chance at winning. One is brash. I am sure he is loud and foul in language,.too. His ego is way too big, but in the end, he is not someone who will lie to your face about how your sons died in Benghazi. He won't sneak around and do things that put America in jeoprady.He will not lie under oath, and erase 33,000 emails. Emails that werebeing received and sent fron a non secure server and lie about it. He will not defend his spouses infidelity, while badmouthing the women you husbandslept with.

    Yeah, he has baggage, but she has a medium size U-Haul full og cloak and dagger baggage that demonstratres her sins far out weigh anything he caN pack into an overnight, take on bag. Plus he is willing to admit his mistakes, not deny they happened.

    The choice remains an easy one to make, as one mans sins are not as many as the others wmoans sins!

    Wait until women come forward and say that Donald got them pregnant and that he made them get an abortion, with Trump paying for it.

    I know, I know...
    But...but... Hillary
    But...but...SCOTUS

    The fact is that Trump supporters cannot simply support him on his own merits, they have to drag somebody else down in order to make him look good.

    It sounds like you are contradicting yourself.- I spent many years in the military - and I heard that language all the time- Now I might participate in those conversation- but it was never necessary for me to use that kind of language.

    Currently, I admin a few FB pages (including military) - I am very liberal about what opinons people may want to discuss - but one hard fast rule - is no foul language. And I have deleted many comments due ot that..

    Uh, if you mean the Clintons nobody has to drag the Clintons down.
    The bottom is the bottom with no place left to go in the down direction.

    Trump is openly bragging about sexual assault. That isn't locker room talk. It's a man who feels he is above the law.

    There's always Jesus. But just as He told Samuel. There's no need to worry because it's HIM that His people chose to reject as they cried out for their king of choice.

    Key word "is" or should that be "did".
    Remember that was 11 + years ago.
    Is there something say in the last couple of years.


    On this, I would agree with you - not really necessary to use those terms.
    But, It appears he has step back from them for most part.

    Seriously? Has the whole world gone crazy? Have we not heard the deplorable things he has said about women just in this election cycle? Yet some feel the need to qualify his statements as 11 years ago?

    What's changed?

    Eleven years ago Trump was a youngster of 59 years of age. Ten days ago he was tweeting up a storm about how a Miss Universe winner was fat, overweight, and a real problem. Clearly, his attitude toward women has not changed. So what he said 11 years ago is probably something he would still say today.

    Furthermore, during the campaign he's had consultants tell him to change his tawdry ways but he hasn't. It's obvious he's the same guy today that he was 11 years ago.

    You heard other men bragging about physically grabbed the genitals of women? Of forcing themselves on woman?

    If that's true, then all of the efforts to change the culture of the military in regard to "rape culture" are absolutely justified.

    I would be embarrassed to admit it if I had participated in talk like that (I'm not talking about crude language, BTW). I certainly wouldn't try to justify or minimize it.

    If you think this is about "foul language," you've missed the point.

    What is he now is the question.

    Not just for DT but what is Hillary in the present tense of her political life.

    I believe we need to stay in the present tense give or take some time (a few months into the past?) to evaluate where these candidates are in the here and now.

    To do anything else, to accuse beyond the editorial present tense of either one risks being a false witness forbidden under the law of the ten commandments of course.

    It seems that almost everyone here at the BB is driven by passion and emotion. Accusations even to the status of our relationship with God is questioned. Not good.

    The political direction IS GOING TO CHANGE.. The composition of the SCOTUS will be changed via either one at the helm. The view of the Constitution as a static or a living, breathing document will be established. Immigration laws will definitely change, abortion euthanasia, the view of the Bill of Rights, are up for modification etc...

    But in which direction do you personally want it to go?

    My personal opinion is that both candidates are seriously flawed in their individual present tense stati.

    I have decided to go with the lesser of two evils.

    And I know that varies from person to person.
