DAMNING THEMSELVES:

Surrogates explaining away Trump's sexual behavior only seem to make things worse (Katie Zezima, October 13, 2016, Washington Post)

[I]n trying to justify or wave away the reports, many of Trump's defenders only seem to be making it worse.

Trump's top supporters, many of them middle-aged or older men, have tried to explain away Trump's behavior in terms that range from puzzling to offensive -- angering people in both parties and complicating the Republican nominee's attempts to move past the controversies.

Trump and his surrogates have brushed off his crude remarks about sexual assault on the 2005 videotape as "locker room" banter, infuriating many who say it is not how most men actually speak to one another. Some, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, have described Trump's comments on the video as typical male behavior in general.

Others are also attempting to discredit the women accusing Trump of assault.

At some point don't you just have to accept that they don't think the behavior is wrong?
