Susan Page: Trump’s Hot Mic Comments ‘a Political Apocalypse’

Susan Page
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” while discussing the lewd comments Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made while being recorded in 2005 on a hot microphone, the Washington bureau chief for USA Today Susan Page called it a “political apocalypse.” Page said, “We have never seen anything like this before in modern American politics. It wast just Republicans, the Republican national chairman released a statement criticizing him, the highest ranking Republican in the nation House Speaker Paul Ryan dis-invited him to  share a stage with him in  Wisconsin, Senators in tough races are withdrawing their endorsement of him. This is a political apocalypse. And it is sort of — we have had October surprises before, we have never had something like this in which a candidate survived and gone on to win the election.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
