LOCKER ROOM TALK

Jim Wallis
Donald Trump has continued to shrug off his
condoning and bragging about sexual assault
on the ubiquitous Access Hollywood video —
which now many of our children have seen as
well via social media — as merely “locker room
talk.”
 
It was my oldest son, home for his fall college
break, who told me last Friday, “You need to
watch this Dad; it’s really disgusting and it’s
all over Facebook.” So I did watch it, and my
son was right: It is utterly disgusting to hear
Trump reduce women to property that he can
handle however he wants to.
 
My son is an 18-year-old college baseball
player, and a lifelong athlete who has been
in “locker rooms,” or in his case, dugouts and
the gyms, for his entire life. He said, “I’ve never
heard that kind of talk from any of my teammates
or fellow athletes … never.” My younger son, who
at 13 and also a baseball and basketball player,
confirmed that he had never heard any of his
sports buddies talk that way. I felt deeply offended
and angry, that my two sons couldn’t avoid hearing
Donald Trump boast about groping women and
laughing that because he was a star he could get
away with it; those words are now everywhere in a
video nobody can avoid.
 
Donald Trump was a 59-year-old man when he spoke
about women as mere objects for his sexual
gratification — and he is now the presidential
candidate of a major party for president of the
United States.
 
MY QUESTION IS DO WANT THIS PERSON AS
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
