Ever since his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton eviscerated him over his sexist comments the Republican nominee as well as his managers and aides have been scrambling — and failing — to come up with acceptable defenses.
Since it’s a pretty impossible feat, his surrogates tend to stutter a lot.
Sometimes, they even make false statements.
For instance, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was left red-faced after trying to understate the level of her boss’ well-documented misogyny on "The Kelly File."
When host Megyn Kelly asked Conway to admit the media mogul has blurted out a lot of offensive statements about women, the strategist said Trump was unfairly criticized over “a couple of comments he’s made over 25 years or so with respect to women.”
Of course, it isn’t true and Kelly made sure to highlight this particular fact.
“Kellyanne, come on,” the host shot back. “The ads that she’s running about him when it comes to his comments on women use his words.”
“You know that’s not true. You know he has repeatedly made comments about women — about their looks, their size, their weight, even in this campaign,” Kelly added, all of which is factually accurate.
Last September, the foul-mouthed billionaire infamously called out his former GOP rival Carly Fiorina over her appearance. “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!” he said.
Later, in March this year, amid a heated spat with Republican presidential rival Ted Cruz, Trump retweeted a fan who had posted an image mocking Cruz‘s wife’s looks.
