Paul Ryan uninvites Trump from his rally after latest remarks on women


House Speaker Paul Ryan uninvited GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump from his rally Saturday after a video surfaced of the candidate making lewd remarks about women.

“I am sickened by what I heard today,” Ryan said in a statement. “Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests. In the meantime, he is no longer attending tomorrow’s event in Wisconsin.”

The Washington Post published a video Friday that shows Trump talking about a married woman to former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush, saying in part, “I did try and f**k her. She was married, and I moved on her very heavily.” The New York billionaire went on to say, “I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there, and she was married.”

Trump makes reference to his fame as a factor in his relationships with women, saying in the video, “when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.” The Republican nominee goes on to tell Bush, “Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything.”

After The Washington Post published the video, Trump responded saying, “This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close.” The candidate went on to say, “I apologize if anyone was offended.” Trump faces off against Secretary Hillary Clinton in the second presidential debate Sunday night.

Following Ryan’s statement, Trump announced his running mate Mike Pence will attend the rally in his stead. “Governor Mike Pence will be representing me tomorrow in Wisconsin,” the statement said. “I will be spending the day in New York in debate prep with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Jeff Sessions, and then flying to St. Louis on Sunday for the 2nd Presidential Debate.”
