    Again, thats not the issue. Issue is that he appears to have regularly sexually assaulted women. Everything that has come up so far matches the behavior that he himself has described in the audiotapes.

    Trump's vile character has been public knowledge for decades so I'm not really sure why the pussy-grabbing statement was particularly shocking or game changing.

    The better question is why it hasn't been brought up earlier, and the reason is that as long as he never really acknowledged it, many Trump supporters could just pretend it wasn't the case. The reason the statement was so damaging is because they couldn't pretend any more.

    Because the media decided it was important and that you should now care about it. And like the sheep that the majority of Americans are, they are falling for it. This is not to say that Trump deserves to win, but how so many voters can be turned on the flip of a switch is Walking dead material worthy.

    On the subject of George Soros, there is a lot of conspiracy mixed with facts, he is an enigma. It is well known that Soros funds social agitators and gave millions to BLM and affiliated groups. You may remember the Chicago riots when Trump came to town, which was agitated by MoveOn.org, a front group funded by Soros.

    He is overall an evil man and the sooner we can be rid of him, the better.

    What Feanor said is more accurate, before you could defend him and he could say anything during the campaign and have it spun in a different way but a tape of him explaining in private how he sexually assaults women cannot be spun or framed as a joke or put into context of an interview. It simply is, and once you watch the tape you can't unsee it and Kellyanne Conway isn't going to be able to tell you he didn't say or mean the things that he clearly said and meant. It's why Romney's '47%' was so damaging, it said to people "this is what this person actually thinks".

    This isn't to say he hasn't said other horrible things on the trail but this was fundamentally different - a media conspiracy is a far greater stretch of the imagination than a simple case of many people simultaneously realising the damage of this story in particular. Republicans were extremely swift in denouncing him so unless they were in on the media conspiracy too I think it's safe to say they similarly understood the gravity of the mess in which they had found themselves.

    He's written the same instances in his books. People care about it now because the media decided that you should care. This is literally 15 year old news that is public knowledge to anyone who wanted to pick up one of Trump's books and read.

    Reporters read books and report what they've read.
