Prominent Republicans Condemn Trump Comments

Guy has already covered the newly-released audio concerning Donald Trump’s comments on women back in 2005. They were disgusting, and completely inappropriate. Here’s a list of notable Republicans who have condemned Trump’s comments:

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said he was “sickened” by Trump’s comments, and proceeded to effectively un-invite him from an event in Wisconsin on Saturday.

“I a sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than the clip suggests. In the meantime, he is no longer attending tomorrow’s event in Wisconsin.”

RNC Chairman Rience Priebus said that "no woman" should be described using the words Trump used:

Sen. Marco Rubio called the recording "vulgar, egregious, and impossible to justify."

Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, called Trump's comments "vile" and degrading to women.

Utah Governor Gary Herbert announced that he will not be voting for either Trump nor Hillary Clinton.

Sen. Ted Cruz said there was "no excuse" for Trump's "disturbing" comments.
