"Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am."I've never met the man (and hope I never do), but let's state the obvious: we all know him. We know his views on women well enough to know that his words in that decade-old videotape emphatically do reflect who he is and how he thinks.
Donnie has repeatedly and very publicly shat on women he doesn't like. The roster includes Rosie O'Donnell, Carly Fiorina, Megyn Kelly, and Alicia Machado, and they're just the ones that come to mind without a Web search. The AP interviewed insiders on Donnie's former TV show, The Apprentice, who recounted his sexist and demeaning treatment of female contestants.
So yeah, Donnie, you lied. The words in that video do reflect who you are.
[UPDATE: I misidentified one of the women Trump has denigrated. It was not Meg Whitman, but Carly Fiorina. I've corrected that in the original text.
Also, I said that Teh Donald gave a typical non-apology apology. This is partially true: his first response, on Friday, did indeed include the weasel words, "if anyone was offended". However, his video apology on Saturday included the straightforward, "I apologize". Still too little, too late, but at least he didn't repeat his smarmy mistake of Friday.]
