Target: Donald Trump, Republican Presidential Nominee
Goal: Drop out of presidential race after video showing extremely vulgar comments about women was made public.
New video and audio from 2005 have been released showing presidential nominee Donald Trump voice vulgar and sexual remarks about women. In the audio, he can be heard bragging about his ability to grope and kiss women. They let him do this, he says, because he is rich and famous. In the audio, Trump uses lewd curse words and phrases.
With celebrity reporter Billy Bush, Trump can also be heard discussing a time during which he tried, and failed, to have sex with a married woman. Trump’s campaign has recently focused on President Bill Clinton’s past infidelities. However, the leaked video and audio suggest that Trump, who was married at the time, was also not a faithful husband.
This latest controversy is so serious because it shows once again Trump’s lack of respect for women. In the audio, he is heard not only advocating sexual assault and harassment, but also objectifying women based on their body parts. He lacks the ability to see women as human beings and instead portrays them as sexual objects created only for his satisfaction. Sign the petition to demand that Trump drop out of the presidential race after this latest and most troubling controversy.
Dear Mr. Trump,
Once again, your own words have shed a negative spotlight on you and your presidential campaign. Recent audio and video from eleven years ago captures you referring to women in vulgar terms and bragging about your actions towards women, which can be defined as sexual harassment.
As President of the United States, you cannot only represent men. You have to represent women, who have made so many gains in the last century. No longer do we live in a society in which women are looked at as sexual beings. Your lewd comments about women, which are hardly your first, have no place in the twenty-first century and definitely no place anywhere in the American political arena.
You have once again demonstrated that you do not have the temperament or the sensibility to be president. I demand that you drop out of the race.
[Your Name Here]
