Curious if the people so offended by Trump's comments on the bus about grabbing p$$$y are equally offended by the many rap lyrics that objectify and demean women!

You might say it doesn't matter because rap stars aren't running for president but neither was Trump when the conversation on the bus was recorded. That argument also does not help you because the wife of our last president as well as Hillary Clinton made no secret of their love for Beyonce and Jay-Z and other rappers while they expressed hypocritical outrage at what Trump said.

I'd love to know how many women (and men) who were out protesting Trump's language are fans of rap and think nothing of the misogynistic lyrics that objectify and demean women.

well, hmmm, let me see here,

I suppose I just don't hold rappers to the same high standard that you do, in fact- I don't expect anything at all out of them other than some entertainment

However, on the other hand, I do expect the people running for the highest office in the land to have the courtesy to keep their hands off random pu$$ies- so there you have it.

Trump wasn't running for office at the time.
Hillary, who was running for office as well as the Obamas made no secret of their love for Beyonce and Jay-z among other rappers who have penned FAR worse than what Trump said.
Do you seriously think rappers don't encourage or even commit sexual assault?

Our culture is disintegrating into crap on many different levels. Trump is just another expression of that, I see very little difference in his twitting and boasting versus violent pornographic rap music. Both are disgusting but Trump now has the capacity to violate on a whole other level. BTW quit trotting out Clinton, she is history. You need to focus on the future and how you are going to deal with the demented egomaniac you elected to President.

If you were offended by Trump's comments, are you also offended by RAP lyrics

I don't listen to RAP but I wouldn't vote for Trump OR a Rap singer for POTUS.

Does that count?

Oh I did NOT vote for Trump and don't think he's qualified. No fan of Hillary either.

I don't listen to rap, and as far as I know there were no rappers running for president.

Sorry I expect more from someone who is president than from a rapper.
