Trying out his best Donald Trump impersonation, Mike Pence on Sunday dismissed the many accusations of sexual assault facing the GOP nominee, rejecting them as “unsubstantiated.”
“Frankly, the timing of these unsubstantiated claims that have been coming forward, all of which Donald Trump has categorically denied, is I think deeply troubling to millions of Americans,” the Republican vice presidential nominee said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“It really is astonishing to most Americans that … these unsubstantiated allegations are, are treated with an enormous amount of coverage,” he added during another appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “These are people who have brought forward allegations going back in some cases decades. And Donald Trump has made it clear that, that he categorically denies that these things ever took place.”
Ten women have come forward in recent days alleging that Trump had either harassed or assaulted them.
But the desperate billionaire and his campaign operatives and surrogates have repeatedly alleged that the Clinton campaign orchestrated the growing number of women coming forward with the accusations and denied they ever occurred.
And when asked by NBC’s Chuck Todd Sunday whether he and Trump were simply ignoring victims of sexual of assault, Pence again deflected.
“You really believe that women who believe they were victimized by sexual assault, they come out, they should be ignored? Isn’t that been part of the problem with rooting out sexual assault in our culture … this feeling that women get ignored?” Todd asked.
