Monday morning Pat Gray, Stu Burguiere and Jeff Fisher, co-hosts of The Glenn Beck Radio Program, asked the question so many Americans were already struggling with over the politically saturated weekend: Can they stomach Donald Trump’s latest juvenile remarks about women, enough to still vote for him, even over the controversial Hillary Clinton?
Burguirere has made it clear that he never been a passenger on the Trump Train, but he seemed somewhat confused that the 10-year-old hot-mic conversation between Trump and Billy Bush that went nuclear over the weekend for including a reference to grabbing a woman by her genitals, would outrage so many of his supporters now when so many similar statements by Trump have been on the record for years.
“If you’re voting for Donald Trump, isn’t this priced into your decision already?” Burguiere frankly asked. “The guy obviously has been saying these things for numerous decades. Obviously.”
That’s when Gray interjected, visibly bothered by a conversation Trump had on “The Howard Stern Show” years ago.
“Would you? Come on. You have a daughter now. You both have, we all have daughters,” Gray said. “Would you ever say to anybody, including Howard Stern, ‘Yeah, that’s fine. You can call (my daughter) a “piece of ass” if you want.’”
Burguirere jumped back in:
“But that’s my point here, though: Is that if you can vote for someone who would do these sorts of things, why would this tape change your mind? … I think there’s a level of emotional impact when you hear him actually say it, because there are dozens, and dozens of times in biographies of him, in articles about him, in pornographic magazines, where he’s quoted saying very similar things.”
