RNC Chair: “People Just Don’t Care” About Reports Trump Mistreated Women

HeadlineMay 16, 2016

Asked about Trump’s reported history of disrespecting women during a “Fox News Sunday” interview with Chris Wallace, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus initially said no one cares.

Reince Priebus: “Well, you know, a lot of things bother me, Chris, and obviously I’m the wrong person to be asking that particular question. But, look we’ve been—we’ve been working on this primary for a year. And—”

Chris Wallace: “Wait a minute, why are you the wrong person? I mean, you’re the chairman of the party, this is your nominee, and they’re saying that he has mistreated women over the years.”

Reince Priebus: “I’m going to answer. What I would say is, you know, we’ve been—we’ve been working on this primary for over a year, Chris, and I’ve got to tell you, I think that all these stories that come out, and they come out every couple weeks, people just don’t care. I think people look at Donald Trump and say—and Hillary Clinton and say, ’Who’s going to bring an earthquake to Washington, D.C.?’”
