    a small distinction, but a distinction nonetheless. he did, however, fail to directly and explicitly apologize.

    Admitting your mistakes only when caught isn't the same thing as realizing the depths of your depravity, imo.
    Had this not come to light and caused the cancellation of his film he wouldn't have come clean.

    Louis C.K.'s apology was not much of one really. It was all about him and how he's learned from it. Most of these tools who abuse women are completely oblivious to the impact they have because everything is about them, always. The only difference between CK and the rest is he, for almost certainly self-centered reasons, felt compelled to speak publicly.

    I'm so tired of this "story". If a candidate has these "values" plastered all over their campaign website, I just automatically assume they're closet homosexuals. It's so cliche now that if it was a storyline in a DC-based tv drama, I would dismiss it as abjectly unimaginative (ie - If you scream from roof tops you hate the gays, you probably like penis...in your mouth).

    did you see his interview where he learned a pardon is also an admission of guilt? that guy definitely isn't playing with a full deck.

    Sounds like a perfect compliment to our current President. Like Robin to Trump's Batman, roaring off into the night in the Derpmobile.

    I've never gotten smallpox. And I've never had a smallpox vaccine.

    Therefore - smallpox vaccines don't work.

    Spineless.

    Not sure how this will play for Mittens. Of the religious loonies who came out for Trump, the Mormons were, bye and large, not included.

    Queued response:

    "While I have not always agreed with President Trump in the past, I am a Republican first and foremost and intend to pursue a conservative agenda on behalf of the people of Utah. I will support him when our agendas overlap and work towards a better solution when they do not."
