Donald Trump’s precarious campaign is reeling from a video tape where the GOP nominee makes lewd comments about sexually assaulting women. Republicans are scampering away like rats on the sinking ship, while some are actually defending his comments. At this point, there is little doubt Donald Trump is possibly the most deplorable candidate ever for the office of the Presidency.
Nationally, Clinton’s lead continues to hold.
