Texas Rep. Says He’s Consider Voting For Trump Even If He Raped Someone (VIDEO)

in Daily New Bite by

Last month, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton faced a bunch of backlash from people who were angry that she’s call half of Donald Trump’s supporters the kind of people you could put into a basket of deplorables. His base was super sad that she made fun of them and made a big fuss about it–right before showing the world just how deplorable they are. On Tuesday evening, Texas Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold became one of those reprehensible human beings when he told MSNBC’s that he would consider voting for Trump even if he raped someone.

Here’s the exchange that took place on All In With Chris Hayes:

CHRIS HAYES: Congressman, if someone off the record said — could someone off the record in a locker room — this was not in a locker room, it was a workplace — said, “I really like raping women,” would that be locker room talk?

FARENTHOLD: Again — it depends — you don’t know the entire context of all of this.

HAYES: But you would be fine that? If a tape came out. …

FARENTHOLD: But I’m not here to defend Donald Trump. I don’t like what he said, but …

HAYES: If a tape came out with Donald Trump saying that — if a tape came out with Donald Trump saying that, saying “I really like to rape women,” you would continue to endorse him.

FARENTHOLD: Again, it would, I — that would be bad, and I would have to consider — I’d consider it. But again, we’re talking about what Donald Trump said 10 years ago as opposed to what Hillary Clinton has done in the past two or three years.

Shortly after the segment aired, Farenthold raced to Twitter to “clarify” his remarks:

 This isn’t the first time Farenthold has been in the media either. In 2010, the Texas representative was running for office when photos emerged of him at a pajama party wearing duckie pajamas. Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with going to a pajama party and dressing up, but going to a party, dressing in pajamas that look like something a child would wear to bed and posing next to models in lingerie is very, very creepy.


These are the kinds of people we are dealing with folks. Grown ass men who, when cornered, say that even if Donald Trump said he was going to rape someone, they’d still probably vote for him. And they wonder why they have a problem with women…
