RNC chairman says the Trump campaign 'is over'

RNC chairman Reince Priebus has hinted that the Donald Trump campaign might be finished, fueling rumors that the Republican party will oust their Presidential nominee. 

Priebus condemned Trump’s sexually explicit comments about women on Friday, saying “No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever.”

Politico.com reports:

The statement, released after 7 p.m. Friday, came as the revelations about the Republican nominee’s crude remarks added a newly urgent threat to his candidacy.

In the recording, Trump boasts about his sexual prowess and describes grabbing women by the genitals.


Democrats seized on the comments, first reported in the Washington Post, to renew their arguments that Trump is sexist and unfit to be president, while even many members of his own party said they could not defend them.

Trump, for his part, released a statement shortly after the Post published its report Friday afternoon, apologizing for any offense they caused, but not for the comments themselves.

Since Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee this spring, Priebus has acted as one of his chief defenders, attempting to rally the party’s resistant rank-and-file members to his candidacy. Still, some have refused to support Trump, a New York businessman already previously known for making inflammatory statements about groups including women, Muslims and immigrants.

Priebus was originally slated to appear with Trump at a local Republican Party event in Wisconsin on Saturday. But in a statement late Friday, Trump said that he would be skipping the event and that Priebus was needed to help him get ready for Sunday’s presidential debate.

“Governor Mike Pence will be representing me tomorrow in Wisconsin,” Trump 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.”

Trump’s statement landed minutes after House Speaker Paul Ryan said he was “sickened” by comments of his party’s nominee.

“Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified,” Ryan added. “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.”


  1. I am voting for the man. And with an added bonus. I am no lover of Christianity . I oppose it with a passion. I prefer Norse religion, myself. But here we have all the Sunday school boys and girls coming to save the day. Make no mistake, that is good news . Did anyone in this millennial era ever hear that the devil has strange bedfellows? Go spread the gospel it won’t make much difference. And thanks for your support!

  2. “Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified”

    No, that kind of thinking is one of the many reasons this country is in its current weakend and crumbling state.

  3. I will continue to support Trump till the very end – win or lose. NYT and WPO are relentless in their effort to destroy him. Not a word about the leaked emails and Hillary. Don’t buy into the MSM’s attempt to destroy Trump … down with Clinton, dems, repubs – remember Trump keeps saying “follow the money.”

  4. If Paul Ryan is sickened by what Trump said 11 years ago, then he had better not listen to what Hillary has been saying, AND DOING, in the intervening years. Trump can speak to people at ANY level in their own vernacular which is all the more reason he is the far better candidate. I cannot fathom people being upset over what someone said 11 years ago, but being OK with what Hillary is DOING now. Such people are clearly insane. (Thank you, chemtrails! Looks like we’re going to make that Agenda 21 population quota.)
