Take our poll: What do you think of Donald Trump's latest comments?


Republican presidential nominee is coming under fire for comments he made on a hot mic back in 2005 about women.

Republicans like Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman have denounced Trump's comments as disgusting.

“Donald Trump is a man I cannot and should not support,” said Kasich, a Republican. “The actions of the last day are disgusting.”

However, Kasich has never been a Trump supporter. Comments like Kasich's feed into Trump's side of the story saying that the establishment and the media are out to get him.

Establishment Republicans in Ohio have not jumped on the Trump bandwagon and Kasich and Portman did not even enter Quicken Loans Arena this summer for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

However, many of followers on our Ohio Politics Facebook page came to Trump's defense.

"We had Bill Clinton remember. Scum of the earth with women. So don’t crack up with Trump. Remember Hillary — thousands of e-mails and selling out to foreign governments to enrich herself," said Liz McKinney.

"I don’t approve of any person’s disrespectful speech against anyone. But Trump is human just like the rest of us. And he did apologize for what he said," said Danny Lee Van Winkle.

I want to know what you think. Tell us on our Ohio Politics Facebook page.
