Fox News called up another D-lister to defend Donald Trump’s ‘Grab Them By The P***y’ remarks yesterday. At least this one didn’t tell women to “grow up,” like Scott Baio did. But psychologist Gina Loudon did suggest women should forget Trump’s behavior - because Clintons.
Loudon appeared on Fox yesterday where she reiterated her own as well as Sean Hannity’s and Donald Trump’s attempt to spin the shocking hot mic recording of Trump lewdness that has rocked the 2016 presidential campaign and has prompted calls for him to withdraw from the race.
While prominent figures such as Senator John Thune, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Rep. Jason Chafetz have either unequivocally renounced their support for Trump and/or called for him to withdraw from the race, Fox News has hosted D-listers like Scott Baio and now Loudon to defend him.
Even host Neil Cavuto seemed impatient with Loudon’s deflections:
LOUDON: I’m offended when any man talks that way. Absolutely, I’m offended. It’s offensive, and I think Mr. Trump realizes it’s offensive. He’s apologized. We have such a major decision before us, Neil, that this to me is more of the minutia that the Clintons would love for us to dwell on to take away from the fact that her actions have hurt people more than his words.”
CAVUTO (interrupting): How do you think he should deal with this tomorrow?
LOUDON: I think he should absolutely address it. I think he should address it right from the get go. I think he should take it very seriously which he seems to have, and then I think he should address the fact that we, as a nation, are in true peril if Hillary Clinton becomes president because of her actions, not because of her words.
Democrat Julie Roginsky was very blunt in her condemnation. She said that in the upcoming debate, Clinton will call Trump’s comments “deplorable.”
ROGINSKY: I use that word specifically, that there’s no excuse for them, that what he’s in fact doing is applying sexual assault. It’s not even locker room talk, as he wants to say. …Look, that was not an apology [that Trump issued on Friday]. He said, "If anybody was offended.” If anybody was offended? I think the world was offended, every woman and every man that cares about any woman in the world was offended.
Cavuto made a brief detour into Bill Clinton’s infidelities and Hillary Clinton’s supposed enabling. That got Loudon started again:
LOUDON: Here is where Hillary Clinton is more complicit in the actual abuse of women than some words that someone said in some locker room talk that I’m not excusing, but I am saying Hillary Clinton’s actions actually hurt people.
Cavuto replied, “You say locker room talk, he was 60 years old.” Cavuto later called it “a deal breaker isn’t it?”
Loudon deflected again:
LOUDON: Hillary Clinton defamed the women that her husband abused. She has never defended them. She’s called them bimbos, she spent $100,000 on a private investigator to try to dig stuff up out of their past to make things even worse for the victims of her husband.
Later, Roginsky made this powerful comment:
ROGINSKY: If you don’t like Hillary Clinton because she’s too close to Wall Street, if you don’t like Hillary Clinton because you think she’s too close to the establishment and that’s what you’re running on, that’s fine. But instead of nominating a Ted Cruz, a Marco Rubio, a Jeb Bush, somebody who could have proposed conservative solutions to the world’s problems, in fact what the Republican Party has nominated is somebody who’s suborning sexual assault, talking about grabbing women by their body parts – I can’t say them on television, what the word was – talking about kissing women without their permission, all because he’s famous and he can. That’s something that’s not politics as usual. That’s not two different visions of two different ways to run the country and run the world.
Broken-record Loudon went back to Clinton:
LOUDON: What he did is so far less than what Bill Clinton did to women in the Oval Office. And that’s not exploiting his stardom?
…I can’t move past the fact that Hillary Clinton has never condemned the actions of her husband, has never defended these women. That’s what I can’t get past. And the fact that her entire economic and national security future depends on this election.

This woman makes Margaret Bean-Bayog look like a competent practitioner.
