Today it will be sunny, with a high of 84.

Trump Is in Dallas Today. The presidential candidate, who, it was recently revealed, once bragged about sexually assaulting women, will be in North Dallas today at 4 p.m. to raise money. Where in North Dallas? The story doesn’t say.

Robert Jeffress Stands by His Man. Last night on Lou Dobbs Tonight, the pastor of First Baptist said that Trump did well in Sunday’s debate, demonstrating “the quality that all leaders have to have: resiliency.”

Squirrel Scam in Farmers Branch! Watch out, folks. Some bad guys are pretending help elderly people with squirrels in their attics. But, of course, the bad guys bring the squirrel with them.

  • It’s not sexual assault if, like he said, “they let you do it.” Let you do it is known as “consent.”

    It’s funny that the prudes who want to tell everyone else the acceptable way to have sexual contact don’t seem to know much about how it actually happens.

      what a load of crap you toss out. “consent”??? “consent” occurs BEFORE the act. I’m sure if your daughter or wife were sexually attacked by Donald Trump deciding on his own to “just start kissing them” and grabbing them by their genitalia, when he “[didn’t] even wait”, you would say to them “it’s your fault, you gave consent and it is the acceptable way to make sexual contact”….despicable of you to say. disgusting.

      Here is the quote:
      “Trump: Yeah, that’s her, with the gold. I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. I just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

      Unidentified voice: Whatever you want.

      Trump: Grab them by the p**sy. You can do anything.”

    I can only imagine the terror lurking in the hearts of women everywhere who might have casually remarked about leading men around by their penises all the time that the crunch of boot and pounding of gloved fist upon the door by the Literal Police is but a heartbeat away.

    Boy, are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Iphones going to get an evidence scrubbing now.

    It seems to me that Trump’s private discussion with Billy Bob Bush was more on the line of making fun of groupies that follow the famous around and make themselves available. Seriously, would Mick Jagger or Keith Richards or Ringo Starr have anyone let alone super models jumping in bed with them if not for their stardom?

    As far as a celebrity pu$$y grab, the only one that I recall was Roseanne Barr grabbing her own after “singing” the national anthem between games of a double header in a publicity stunt that backfired royally.

    Sure Trump is kickass and all zup breh, but he’s a man-child and not a man. A man, especially one with daughters, should have left that kind of bro-talk behind when he departed his 20’s many years ago. Grow up ffs.

    Two things:
    1. It’s at Hilton Dallas Lincoln Center (http://www.star-telegram.com/news/politics-government/election/article107467317.html).

    2. Resiliency is also a defining trait of super villains, fwiw.
