Is Donald Trump having the worst week in the history of electoral politics?

After the Washington Post published a damning tape on Friday of Trump claiming that as "a star, you can do anything," including grabbing a woman "by the p****," a group of CNN reporters poured fuel on the fire by compiling clips of Trump's appearances on Howard Stern's talk show, in which he claims it's totally fine and not weird at all to call his daughter Ivanka "more voluptuous than ever" as well as allowing Stern to describe her as a "piece of ass."

Some other horrifying clips from Trump's myriad Stern conversations, per CNN:

  • In the same interview, Stern also asked Trump, "Have you had a black women in bed?"
    "Well, it depends on what your definition of black is," responded Trump.
    "Interesting. I like this discussion. His bed is a rainbow," Stern said.
    "The rainbow coalition, as Rev. Jesse would say," Trump said. [1997]
  • Stern asks Trump if he can call Ivanka "a piece of ass," to which Trump responds in the affirmative.
    "My daughter is beautiful, Ivanka," says Trump.
    "By the way, your daughter," says Stern.
    "She's beautiful," responds Trump.
    "Can I say this? A piece of ass," Stern responds.
    "Yeah," says Trump. [2004]
  • Trump calls 30 "a perfect age."
    "Until she's 35," a co-host interjects.
    "What is it at 35? It's called check-out time," Trump responds. [2002]

Sandwiched between those disasters came the announcements from over 30 Republican legislators who decided that they would strongly and publicly renounce their support for the candidate, many urging The Donald to drop out of the race altogether. Additionally, all of Trump's combined events with running mate Mike Pence were scrubbed from Trump's website.

Mounting calls for him to drop out of the race led him to tell the Wall Street Journal there's "zero chance" he'll drop out of the race, and to fire off this delightful missive on Twitter Saturday afternoon, in which he claims that nothing is on fire and everything is OK:

Are you okay, Donald?
