Chris Wallace Slams RNC Chair’s Absurd Comments About Donald Trump’s Sexism (Video)

During a Sunday interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, RNC Chair Reince Priebus was slammed for desperately trying to downplay questions about Trump’s long history of sexism.

Wallace brought up a recent article that was published by the New York Times that alleges Trump not only has an elaborate history of insulting women, but it also claims he sexually harassed females in the workplace.

“Obviously, I’m the wrong person to be asking that particular question,” Priebus responded to Wallace’s question.

“Wait a minute,” Wallace shot back. “Why are you the wrong person? You’re the chairman of the party. This is your nominee, and they’re saying he has mistreated women.”

“People just don’t care,” Priebus replied. “I think people look at Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and say, ‘Who is going to bring an earthquake to Washington, D.C.?’ I don’t think Donald Trump and his personal life is something that people are looking at and saying, ‘Wow, I’m surprised that he’s had girlfriends.’ That’s not what people look at.”

Wallace didn’t take too kindly to that poor excuse of an answer.

‘Whoa, forgive me, sir,” the Fox News host said interrupting Priebus. “It’s not whether or not he had girlfriends. The question is whether or not he mistreated women, whether he made unwanted advances, whether he humiliated women in the workplace.”

Priebus then tried to backtrack a bit, saying he did care but he didn’t think that you could use “traditional analysis” to break down anything related to Trump’s campaign.

While I agree that you can’t really use “traditional analysis” as it relates to Trump, the way in which the RNC chair was seemingly trying to blow off these allegations was inexcusable. Here we have an article that alleges the presumptive nominee for his party sexually harassed and embarrassed women – even in the workplace – and his response was essentially a “shrug of the shoulders” because he’s aware that many Republican voters are too ignorant to care about these awful allegations.

Though when you really sit back and think about Trump’s success, it is amazing to think about how he seems immune to the sort of backlash any other politician in the country would face if they said or did the things he has.

Could you imagine the right-wing freakout that would take place if President Obama said he didn’t think POWs were war heroes or if Hillary Clinton didn’t release her tax returns? Even most Republicans would be destroyed if they acted like Trump. To say nothing about the fact that he’s the biggest flip-flopper I’ve ever seen. Just recently he literally said that basically everything he says he’s going to do is “just a suggestion.”

It’s all so absurd that I often catch myself laughing at the fact that this is really happening.

Though I think once we really get rolling into the general election, things are going to change dramatically for Trump. As I’ve said before, winning a primary and winning a general election are two entirely different things.

While I could be wrong, I just can’t shake this feeling that once August rolls around, Trump’s campaign and the Republican party are going to be in a whole lot of trouble.

    “People just don’t care.”……It makes you wonder who Reince Priebus considers to be people. Priebus’ definition of ‘people’ doesn’t appear to include women, because women definitely care about Trump’s misogyny, and it’s going to bury him in the fall. Every time Priebus opens his mouth I become more convinced he’s in his job because he is the only one they could get to take it.

    the stupidest person in the world has just been named = the collective mind of republican women who must be brain dead to support tRump…

    • iowapam

      as apposed to you you intellectuals who will vote for a vile, belching gutter snake who cares NOTHING about America and her people. Wow smart guy….

      • noah vail

        did you mean “opposed” ? wow, an intellectual giant…hahaha

  • AJMile

    There is a double standard applied to Secretary Clinton. If she behaved anything close to Trump she would be crucified. The refusal to release taxes by both Trump and Sanders proves this.

    • iowapam

      WHAT? You are joking right? How about releasing her emails that belong to We the People, or her speeches to Goldman Saks or her corrupt hand in the Russian uranium deal (for which the Hammond men are still in prison, since Hillary sold their ranch out from them in this deal) or a dead ambassador and 3 brave fighting men, or her sniper attack where she and Chelsea “ran for cover”,(must have happened after the welcoming ceremony on the airport tarmac.) Killary is an embarrassment to America and We the People see her for the mafia boss/money launderer that she is (sorry to the true Mafia).

      • AJMile

        I’m a We the People too! So how about everyone pony up their taxes like she did? How about you come up with non-Drudge Report garbage and actually talk policy.

        But here’s the best part. She’s going to win. She’s going to be successful in office. And you’re going to be stuck for another eight years watching your ideology of hate and deceit fail. It’s going to be great. I’m going to make popcorn just to watch. But not with Iowa corn. Because it tastes like bigots.
