Even John Boehner says Donald Trump’s situation can’t get any worse. Yet every day it does.
Yesterday The New York Times reported allegations by two women that Trump groped or kissed them against their will. Meanwhile, a People magazine reporter published her own account of being pinned against a wall by Trump and forcefully kissed. In total there are four women accusing him of sexual assault, with more likely to come.
It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Trump would kiss or grope women without their consent, given he bragged about doing it in a now-infamous 2005 video published by the Washington Post last week.
Despite all this, Doug Burgum, the Republican candidate for governor of North Dakota, is still a Trump endorser. On Saturday, he issued a two-sentence response to the Trump video. “These comments are offensive, wrong and unacceptable,” he told the Grand Forks Herald. “It is disappointing that our presidential nominating system produced two flawed candidates.”
Burgum hasn’t responded to these new Trump sexual assault allegations.
We’re curious — what would it take for Burgum to revoke his endorsement of Trump? So we asked his campaign. Here’s what we emailed:
What would it take for you to unendorse Trump?
Would you unendorse Trump if four more women came out with sexual assault allegations against him?
How many women is the limit for you?”
We’ll update this post if we get a response.
