Scott Baio Defends Trump's Sexism With More Sexism

Lovely.

Scott Baio came to Donald Trump’s defense with sexist remarks in a response to criticism of the GOP presidential nominee’s own documented sexism

The former “Charles in Charge” star sat down for an interview on “Justice with Judge Jeanine” and discussed recently leaked footage showing a lewd conversation between Trump and host Billy Bush about women on the set of “Access Hollywood” in 2005.

“And when you’re a star they let you do it,” Trump said. “You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Trump brushed the sexual assault brag off as “locker room talk,” and Baio agreed and told the millions of women who spoke out against such talk to just “grow up.” 

“First of all, I think 11 years ago Trump was a Democrat, so doesn’t he deserve a pass?” he asked Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro. “I like Trump because Trump is not a politician; he talks like a guy. And, ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you’re not around. So if you’re offended by it, grow up. And by the way, this is what you guys talk about over white wine when you have your brunches, so take it easy with your phony outrage. This is the way the world works. It’s not a big thing.”

Lovely. 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
