TRUMP: "Women - you've got to treat them like s###. It doesn't matter what they say, as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of a##." Seriously, should this scumbag be President?

When, where and in what context did he say that?? Otherwise I simply dismiss it as bandwagon gossip.

I said sure. I'm not voting for him and that wasn't the poll. Of all the scum bags running for president who cares what any of them say, one scumbag will be elected and even if they're the least scummy they're still scummy.

If we are going to call out one candidate for his views on women, let's call them all out, starting with Ted Cruz and voting against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act in 2013. Who's next?

Marco Rubio: No abortion even in cases where the woman's life is in danger, or in cases of rape or incest.

That's Walker's policy, I was unaware that Rubio was also no exception.

He is a Presbyterian, not a Christian. He is also NOT a politician but a business mogel who speaks his mind. Which is better, the guy who hides his words and thoughts behind political correctness or the guy who is honest.

There is no rule and no law that says a president or public official should keep there personal religion separate from their work. The Separation of Church and State is not in the Constitution and the 1st Amendment to the Bill of Rights is important.

I'm getting the sense some of you think BO is a Muslim. If that's the case, you should be completely ok with him allowing his faith to guide his presidential decisions and policy making. Using your logic.

I feel sad for you. Your view of a Theocracy is no different than a radical view of Islamic theocracy in the Middle East. At some point, your way will turn to torturing and killing anyone who doesn't believe in Christianity. Pity,

But he's really a general insult hurler, calling *anybody* lightweights or failures if they don't agree with him. his attitude is juvenile & just not POTUS material.

It was from an esquire article in 1991. I'm no Trump defender.

In a 1991 Esquire interview, he said: “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of [expletive].”
