Scott Baio, the 80’s sitcom star, lectured women that Donald Trump’s “Grab them by the p***y” comments are just “the way the world works.” And if ladies don’t like it, “Grow up, OK?” And besides, Baio is just certain that women talk that way, too.
You may recall that Trumpster Baio previously appeared as a terrorism expert on the Fox Business Network. There, Baio announced that President Barack Obama’s refusal to say “Islamic terror” meant he is either dumb, a Muslim or a Muslim sympathizer. “And I don’t think he’s dumb,” Baio added.
A month later, Baio was back on FBN to discuss the Democratic National Convention. At that time, he complained that nobody asks Chelsea Clinton, “How do you feel that your dad was accused of rape and how do you feel that he had many, many, many affairs behind your mother’s back?”
With that kind of insight into women, it's no surprise Fox News asked Baio to weigh in about the recently unearthed 2005 hot mic recording of Trump lewdness that has rocked the 2016 presidential campaign and has prompted calls for him to withdraw from the race.
Baio began by saying, “I think 11 years ago Trump was a Democrat so doesn’t he deserve a pass? Just throwing that out there.”
Host Jeanine Pirro laughed heartily.
Then Baio started lecturing us “ladies out there.”
BAIO: I like Trump because Trump is not a politician. He talks like a guy. And ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you’re not around. So if you’re offended by it, grow up, OK? And by the way, this is what you guys talk about over white wine when you have your brunches.
So take it easy with your faux outrage. This is the way the world works. It’s not a big thing.
Pirro said she doesn’t talk that way. And, frankly, neither does anyone I know.
But Pirro suggested that those who have condemned Trump do talk that way.
PIRRO: Here’s the thing: People aren’t used to hearing that, having an audio, listening to it. But what shocks me is that I know this is frat house stuff. I know that this is locker room, football locker room talk. But you know when I hear, like, senators and congressmen – some of whom have actually played football – saying they’re outraged – yeah, we, none of us like that language but they do use it. And I’m not defending him in that regard. I think it’s horrific. But at the end of the day, this is the kind of thing that is not unusual for guys.
Later, Pirro played a clip of Hillary Clinton being asked on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis if she had “any regrets over losing the Scott Baio vote.” Clinton replied, deadpan, “Not a one.”
For some reason, Pirro said when she heard that exchange, she “was delighted” because she thought “that one stung.”
Baio’s response was just about as over-the-top as his "Muslim Obama" comment:
BAIO: Oh, I thought it was very funny. Although I’m a little concerned that I’m on the Clinton radar screen because people that disagree with her tend to disappear.
Instead of pushing back on that outrageous remark, Pirro laughed again. “Disappear?” she said. “That probably makes at least two of us here.”
Watch it below from the October 8, 2016 Justice with Judge Jeanine.
A female Trump supporter who was recently interviewed on NPR claimed that not only men but also women, in their locker rooms, routinely converse like Trump did. Really?! Women routinely talk about striving to grope men? I was totally unaware of that. I wonder whether NPR’s Trump supporter’s right-wing info sources clued her into this key aspect of Trump’s so-called locker room talk. Groping was the central legal point in Trump’s chatter, but a supposedly qualified judge Jeannie didn’t even mention reference to groping. In my 60 something years as a male, I’ve seldom heard groping discussed and hardly ever have I heard it spoken of as a desirable or admirable thing. Is there really a wide divergence of cultural practice on this within the US? My travel experiences had led me to assume that groping was much less common in the U.S. than in some other cultures.
You’re on Clinton’s radar screen and you’re worried you might disappear??? I’ve got news for you, you already have disappeared.
