She should have beaten him to a pulp while she was at it. You go girl! Hopefully she had other means of self defense in her home if she were to need it. This idiot is worse than creepy.


Trump and the republican party set the standard. If Trump can attack women, and the republican party still endorses him, other sexual predators will feel empowered.
