Tic Tac, the bite-sized mint namedropped in Donald Trump's recent abhorrent comments about women, has issued a statement. Turns out Trump's proclamation that he can't help but sexually assault women has put a bad taste in the company's mouth.As a refresher, this is what Trump had to say back in 2005 while riding an Access Hollywood bus with Billy Bush:
I’ve gotta use some tic tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a start they let you do it. You can do anything... grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.
You can do anything you want, but not without consequence. Many prominent Republicans are calling for Trump to step aside and let VP nominee Mike Pence lead the GOP. Because the guy known for systemically oppressing women sends a much better message to female voters. Right.
