Republican Congressman says he’d ‘consider’ supporting Trump even if he said he enjoyed raping women

Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.) was involved in a heated discussion tonight with MSNBC host Chris Hayes concerning his continued support of Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump. During the course of the discussion, Hayes asked Farenthold if he would continue supporting Trump even if Trump had been caught on tape bragging that he “liked to rape women.”  Hayes pressed the point, asking, “If a tape came out with Donald Trump saying that, saying, ‘I really like to rape women,’ you would continue to endorse him?”

Farenthold responded, “That would be bad… I’d consider it.”

Farenthold immediately took to twitter to issue a series of apologies for his remarks.
