“It is hard to hold back my rage hearing words like this from a man about women in our country,” said Robin Kneich, Denver City Council member.

These women said Trumps comments toward women, which were caught on tape in 2005, send the wrong message to children.

“It’s important for our sons to grow up knowing how to respect women, knowing how to act appropriately, and sharing power. And that is something Donald Trump is incapable of doing,” Kneich told CBS4.

Trump supporter and volunteer Michelle Hilger said the scandal shouldn’t matter.

“Men have locker room talk, women talk just as bad,” Hilger said. “His skeletons are out of the closet, and we can’t say the same thing about the other side.”

Colorado leaders are among those calling for Trump to reconsider his run for President.

“Donald Trump lacks the simple decency to be president,” tweeted Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, a democrat.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said the lack of Republican support is not unexpected.

“They largely didn’t support him in the first place, so it’s not so much of a surprise,” Giuliani said.

    Its a shame Channel 4 news Denver has already picked crooked Hillary to run this U.S.

    1. John Mertz says:

      If Hillary is so crooked (yet more name calling by trump and his fans) why has she never – ever – been convicted? or even prosecuted? OR even indicted? If she is a criminal, then she is the smartest damned criminal in the history of the world. Republicans have spent over 500 million of dollars and 25 years on witch hunts that have turned up nothing. No make the absolutely nothing. Nada, zilch, zero – whatever language you want it is all the same. Nothing.

      But your hero Trump? That is a different story all together. He is a complete and utter failure.

      Trump Airlines … Failed
      Trump Casinos … Failed
      Trump marriages … Failed – 3 times!
      Trump Mortgage … Failed
      Trump university … Failed
      Trump Vodka … Failed
      Trump China connection … Failed
      Trump bankruptcies …. Four! … not one, not 2, not 3 … but 4 (wow what a great businessman)

      And all this does not even touch all the ridiculous stuff he has said during the campaign (like knowing ISIS better than the generals)

      But all this does not matter to you trumpophiles. Facts are meaningless to you. And trump knows it. Back in 1998 he told People Magazine “If I were to run, I’d run as a republican. They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They love anything on Fox news. I could lie and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific”

      Seems he knows you guys better than you know yourselves. You really are Deplorables for being blindly lead around by the nose by this charlatan.
