“I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never, ever let you down,” Trump said in the apology video

Now a growing list of Republicans are withdrawing support from the nominee. House speaker Paul Ryan dis-invited the nominee from a Republican rally in Wisconsin on Saturday, and said he was sickened by his comments.

“I meant what I said and it’s still how I feel,” Ryan said at the rally.

Ohio Senator Rob Portman, New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayoto, Arizona Senator John McCain join Colorado Senator Cory Gardner, and Colorado Representative Mike Coffman in calling for Trump to step aside in the Presidential race.

    He was a businessman so it can be forgiven but now that he is a politician (whew) it will be held against him so it is time to quit Donald and let your VP run for Prez.

    He wasn’t in political office. He was bragging with the boys. It was 11 years ago. He never acted on it. Get over it. Liberal running scared.
