When Donald Trump saw a child in the audience he thought was “beautiful,” he just couldn’t help himself. Trump is currently under fire for a 1995 video in which he explained that if he thought a female was beautiful, he would kiss her without her consent and “grab her by the pussy.” Trump is a man who has stated publicly that Paris Hilton was hot when she was 12, has been making ‘jokes’ (if they are even jokes) about having sex with his daughter Ivanka since she was a child (and has been photographed in very uncomfortable positions with her), and is going to court in December for child rape.
Naturally, we’re all a little bit confused as to why he would bring a little girl on stage at a rally, tell her how pretty she is, then try to kiss her on the lips — even re-positioning his hand to rest on her rear end just before the unwanted advance. Don’t believe it? Here it is.

Yes, it’s disgusting that he would grab that part of a little girl’s body. It’s horrifying that he would try to kiss her, especially onstage. But perhaps the worst part about all of this is that his fans cheered. They saw nothing wrong with this at all. Not with his hand placement. Not with the fact that he tried to force himself on a child — twice. Nothing.
