Paul Ryan Says Trump Won't Attend His Event In Wisconsin
After a recording leaked of Donald Trump's deplorable remarks about women, including that he could grab a woman "by the pussy," House Speaker Paul Ryan has announced the he will not let the Republican presidential nominee speak at his Wisconsin event on Saturday.
Paul Ryan released the following statement:
I am sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests. In the meantime, he is no longer attending tomorrow's event in Wisconsin.
The remarks he made in 2005, when he was about to make a cameo appearance on a soap opera, shocked Democrats and Republicans.
This included the chairman of the Republican National Committee and Kenosha native Reince Priebus, who Trump was set to appear with at the GOP event on Saturday. He said,
No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever.
These comments would include Trump bragging about groping women simply because he was famous and kissing women because he found them attractive like they were magnets, despite being newly married to his third wife.
After his invitation was retracted, Trump said his running mate Mike Pence, the Indiana governor, would represent him at the Wisconsin event.
The was supposed to be Donald Trump's first appearance with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
Earlier this week, Trump said that a lot of his speech against women was done for the purpose of entertainment. He said,
And I can tell you this, there's nobody — nobody — that has more respect for women than I do.
Wanting to fuck a woman is completely different from respecting a woman, Donald.
