Trump Spokeswoman Blames Rape Culture on 'Hip-Hop Music'

Using hip-hop as a scapegoat. How original!

Published October 12th

Donald Trump and his minions have been trying their best to deflect criticism off of themselves because of the GOP presidential candidate’s recent derogatory and rape-y comments about women.

Joining CNN’s Carol Costello on her program, Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson thought it would be a good idea to put the misogyny blame on hip-hop and Hollywood rather than address the comments her boss made.

“This rape culture is supported by none other than the entertainment industry, none other than hip-hop music that you can hear on local radio,” Pierson tried to claim. She then got clapped on by Costello, who was supposed to be a moderator for the debate between her and CNN contributory Angela Rye.

“The way that sexual assault is portrayed in some Hollywood movies is wrong, and it is, and I agree with you there,” Costello said. “But that doesn’t make what Mr. Trump said right, right? So, to me when you say these things I don’t know if you really mean them. I don’t know if you mean them or if you’re deflecting to excuse Mr. Trump’s comments, and there’s a difference.”

Ouch. Yeah, just use hip-hop and Hollywood as scapegoats. Might as well throw violent video games in there as well for good measure. SMH. Check out the full segment below.
