So Trump was caught on tape, bantering about grabbing women and how they love it. Who knows if this was real, half-real, imaginary, whatever. I only hope my every private conversation from twenty years ago wasn’t recorded to be played back in public.
But in 40 years of public life, there has never been an accusation of sexual assault or harassment against Trump, until this week — and I’ll get to that in a moment.

His new book is called “One Soldier: A Canadian Soldier's Fight Against the Islamic State."
