All the news that’s fit to print on the front page of The New York Times now includes a public record of Donald Trump’s sexual bragging.

There it is in the upper right corner on Oct. 8, 2016:

“Tape Reveals Trump Boast About Groping Women.”

Trump has responded by claiming Bill Clinton’s banter on the golf course was worse. Yeah, that is plausible.

Billy Bush, a minor TV celebrity, is heard cheerleading him in the background.

Trump said that his “star” status allowed him to put heavy moves on women, including a married woman—he “moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there.”

But a “star” gets special treatment, and “You can do anything,” including “grab them by the pussy.”

The married woman who did not put out (after being taken on a furniture-shopping trip) did not really meet The Donald’s standards anyway.

“I did try and fuck her,” said Trump. “She was married. She’s now got the big phony tits and everything.”

Fuck. Pussy. Tits. In plain print in The New York Times. Front page. Wow, is this the Age of Aquarius, or what?

Career politicians in both big-business parties are shocked, shocked at the trash-talking tax dodger.

The Democratic Party publicity team is making the case that the Clintons are ever so much classier. Uh-huh.

I am 61 years old and cannot recall the front page of The Gray Lady being so spicy. Even when Bill was getting blow jobs in the Oval Office and leaving stains on that blue dress.

For a sector of old-school Republicans, Hillary Clinton really is the best Republican candidate running for president. The Goldwater Girl who found her way to neoliberalism is safer than the Orange Overlord who stirs up class resentment, even in the cause of class rule. And in the big business of war and empire, the Clintons are truly more experienced and ready to deliver in the future.

Oh, and by the way, the leaders of the Communist Party are giving “critical” support to Clinton, complete with “dialectical” parsley around the rotten turkey of the Democratic Party. Thanksgiving, anyone?
