Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions said his comments regarding a 2005 video in which Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump discusses aggressively groping a woman have been mischaracterized.
On Monday, the Weekly Standard published a story in which it quoted Sessions regarding the controversial video that has led to a growing number of calls for Trump to step down as the GOP nominee. Sessions’ comments were made in a post-debate interview room just after Trump squared off against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
From the Weekly Standard:
SESSIONS: This was very improper language, and (Trump has) acknowledged that.
TWS: But beyond the language, would you characterize the behavior described in that (video) as sexual assault if that behavior actually took place?
SESSIONS: I don’t characterize that as sexual assault. I think that’s a stretch. I don’t know what he meant—
TWS: So if you grab a woman by the genitals, that’s not sexual assault?
SESSIONS: I don’t know. It’s not clear that he—how that would occur.
On Monday night, Sessions said the characterization of his comments were “completely inaccurate.”
“My hesitation was based solely on confusion of the contents of the 2005 tape and the hypothetical posed by the reporter, which was asked in a chaotic post-debate environment,” Sessions said in a written statement provided to AL.com. “I regret that it resulted in an inaccurate article that misrepresented my views.
“Of course it is crystal clear that assault is unacceptable. I would never intentionally suggest otherwise,” Sessions added.

Add Condoleezza Rice to the list of Republicans now opposed to Donald Trump.
“Enough! Donald Trump should not be President,” the former secretary of State said in a Facebook posting late Saturday, “He should withdraw.”
Rice did not endorse Hillary Clinton, however, saying on that “as a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth.”
The Clinton camp has been courting potential Republican supporters for months, especially in the foreign policy arena, and Rice has been considered a major target.
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has formally released a statement denouncing Donald Trump as the Republican presidential candidate and vowing not to vote for him in the upcoming election.
Bentley’s press secretary Yasamie August emailed this statement from the governor:
“I endorsed Governor John Kasich for President, because I felt like he was the most qualified and the best person to lead our nation. I certainly won’t vote for Hillary Clinton, but I cannot and will not vote for Donald Trump.”
A bi-partisan duo of Alabama Legislators – both of whom signed a resolution of impeachment for Gov. Robert Bentley today – have sent the governor another demand.
They want to see the infamous home of “Wanda’s Desk.”
Rep. Ed Henry, a Republican who moved to impeach Bentley in the first place, and Rep. Johnny Mack Morrow, a Democrat who has become the biggest thorn in the governor’s side since Spencer Collier, now demand an examination of the office of Bentley’s former executive assistant, Wanda.”
The letter is a follow up to one Morrow wrote last week in which he asked “What were you and Rebekah Caldwell Mason doing that required that Wanda’s desk be moved and that the door be locked.”
Anderson Cooper set up Trump by making him say he didn’t assault women.
Here is WHY….
