Donald Trump: Political Death (Finally) By A Thousand Tic Tacs?

Wave two. Trump’s Tic Tacs are becoming drip-drops and tick-tocks. Reports of behavior that accord with what he said on the tape–right down to the Tic Tacs–are coming in. From groping to assault. This is in Politico this morning:

Late Friday, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof detailed another case of what he called “groping” by Trump, reporting that the developer had laid hands on a dinner party guest in the presence of her husband in 1992. “I didn’t know how to handle it,” the woman told Kristof. “I would go away from him and say I have to go to the restroom. It was the escape route.” CNN’s Erin Burnett related a more recent example of purported lechery: In 2010, Trump invited a friend of hers into his Trump Tower office and made an unwelcome, unexpected pass. “That’s exactly what Trump did to me,” she told Burnett. “Trump took Tic Tacs, suggested that I take them also. He then leaned in … catching me off guard and kissed me almost on the lips. I was really freaked out.”

The Republican nominee’s talk of sexually preying on women makes Romney’s ’47 percent’ tape seem like a high-minded Great Courses lecture.
