After Trump’s “Worst Week,” Things Actually Got Worse

New report reveals the breadth of Trump’s sexism

Think Donald Trump has hit rock bottom? Think again.

After having what may have been the “worst week in modern presidential campaign history,” things have only gotten worse for Donald Trump. Two days after The New York Times published a devastating exposé on the fact that Trump lost $916 million in 1995 and could have avoided paying income taxes for almost two decades, a new report continued to expose Trump’s despicable record in business.

In a shocking story published this morning, The Associated Press revealed that Trump repeatedly “rated female contestants by the size of their breasts and talked about which ones he'd like to have sex with” on the set of The Apprentice. With 36 days until Election Day, the Trump campaign is in a downward spiral. As noted on CNN this morning, Trump’s latest round of controversies “threaten to drain the Republican nominee of something he can't afford: time.”
