Trump Doesn't Believe He's Losing The Female Vote

In the Presidential race, the women's vote could not have more agency, but Donald Trump doesn't seem to care

In more entirely ridiculous news from the Republican party leader, Donald Trump doesn't believe his 'locker room talk' has cost him any female votes.

If you aren't already aware of Donald Trump 'pussygate', then firstly, where have you been this last week? And secondly, here is a rough re-cap:

Trump was caught on tape, on a tour bus, while visiting the Days of Our Lives set in 2005 making lewd comments about all the women he felt he could 'kiss' or 'grab', on account of his being famous enough for them to let him without putting up an argument.

He says on the tape: 'I am automatically attracted to beautiful [women]. I just start kissing them. Just kiss, I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy, you can do anything.'

Since then, he's issued an apology, claiming his comments were just 'locker room talk' between men.

In a more recent development, despite thousands of women voicing their concerns over the Republican party leader's blatant disregard for female sexual consent, and many athletes also coming forward to say that this is not their idea of 'locker room talk', Donald Trump doesn't seem to think that it will cost him the election.

To Fox's Bill O'Reilly, he said 'If that's what it is going to take to lose an election, that will be pretty sad,' showing that he doesn't consider it a serious enough issue for people to get particularly worked up over.

He went on to say: 'I've had a lot of women come up to me and say, 'Boy, I've heard that, and I've a lot worse than that over my life.'

Looking at a poll that showed the female vote in support of him waning, Trump said: 'I'm not sure I believe it.'

The fact he doesn't think it's all that reasonable for people to be getting upset over 'pussygate,' coupled with his feeling that it won't affect the vote, not only undermines his apology, but is also indicative of the sort of male chauvinism that spawned his pussy grabbing comments in the first place.

And it's certainly indicative of the fact that he won't put women's interests first if he makes it into office.
