UPDATE: Lummis, Mead, Enzi Comment on Trump
UPDATE: Senator Mike Enzi's spokesman Max D'Onofrio has sent us a statement...
“Senator Enzi does not condone nor approve of Donald Trump's remarks. The comments released in the eleven-year-old video are clearly offensive and inappropriate. Mr. Trump was quick to apologize and he now has the opportunity to prove that these remarks are not indicative of his behavior.
“The choice in November is still the same, however, and the American people are going to have to make it. Senator Enzi does not want four more years of failed Obama policies that are severely hurting Wyoming and this country. He also does not want a Supreme Court that will ignore for years to come the freedoms guaranteed in our Constitution. This is what electing Hillary Clinton will bring.”
Enzi spokesman D'Onofrio said the Senator could not spare a few minutes for an interview on the subject.
UPDATE: Governor Matt Mead has also weighed in on the Trump Controversy...
"Donald Trump's remarks about women are deeply troubling. In learning about this repugnant conversation, I join Republican leaders across the country in my disappointment."
We have requested a short interview for the radio. We have not heard back from the Governor yet.
UPDATE: We have a statement from Representative Cynthia Lummis on the comments from Donald Trump...
"Mr. Trump has rightly apologized for his disgusting, decade-old comment about women. Because he had the good sense to choose Mike Pence as his running mate I still intend to vote for him, but I will be holding my nose and repeating to myself, "Supreme Court, Supreme Court, Supreme Court" as I vote. I fear for my freedom and our Nation's future if Hillary Clinton is appointing Supreme Court Justices and running the federal government."
Lummis also told us in an interview that she wishes his campaign manager would throw his cell phone in the ocean, get him off Twitter, and focused on what's important in this race.
We have contacted both Wyoming Senators and are awaiting their reactions and interviews.
Here are the latest developments in the current crisis surrounding vulgar remarks made by Republican Nominee Donald Trump...
NEW YORK (AP) — In a videotaped midnight apology, Donald Trump is declaring "I was wrong and I apologize" after being caught on tape making shockingly vulgar and sexually charged comments.
Yet he is also defiantly dismissing the revelations as "nothing more than a distraction" from a decade ago and signaling he would close his presidential campaign by arguing rival Hillary Clinton has committed greater sins against women.
Trump's videotaped statement capped a jarring day that threatened to sink the businessman's White House bid, sending Republicans into a panic just over a month from Election Day and on the cusp of Sunday's debate.
Outraged GOP lawmakers condemned Trump's comments. Trump is heard in the 2005 video bragging about women letting him kiss and grab them because he is famous.
Utah Sen. Mike Lee is the latest Republican member of Congress to call on Donald Trump to drop out of the race for president.
Lee is responding to Trump's apology for making crude comments about women and his defiant aassertion that those remarks from 2005 are a "distraction from the important issues we're facing today."
Lee says in a video posted on his Facebook page early Saturday morning: "You, sir, are the distraction. Your conduct, sir, is the distraction."
Lee adds the goal of the GOP is to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. For that reason, he says, Trump should step aside.
Donald Trump remains defiant even as he is apologizing for making crude comments about women.
The Republican presidential nominee says former President Bill Clinton "has actually abused women" and says his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton "bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims."
Trump says, "Let's be honest, we're living in the real world."
He says a recording of him from 2005 that was published Friday afternoon, in which he brags about trying to kiss and grope women, is a "distraction from the important issues we're facing today."
Trump says while he's made some "foolish" comments, he says the Clintons have done worse.
The New York billionaire says, "We will discuss this more in the coming days."
Donald Trump is apologizing for vulgar and profane comments he made about women more than a decade ago, saying they "don't reflect" the man he is today.
He says, "I was wrong and I apologize."
Trump's campaign released the one-and-a-half-minute video on the GOP nominee's social media accounts early Saturday morning.
The video apology came hours after The Washington Post and NBC News posted a video from 2005 in which the Republican nominee brags about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women who were not his wife.
Trump says, "I've said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them."
A Republican congressman in Colorado is calling for Donald Trump to "step aside."
Rep. Mike Coffman says his party's presidential nominee should leave the race "for the good of the country, and to give the Republicans a chance of defeating Hillary Clinton."
Coffman faces a challenging re-election test in November. He released his statement soon after a 2005 recording of Trump making vulgar remarks about women became public.
Coffman says, "Mr. Trump should put the country first and do the right thing."
Coffman had previously refused to endorse Trump.
Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz has withdrawn his endorsement of Donald Trump.
The Republican, who is chairman of the House oversight committee, tells a Utah television station he "can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president."
Chaffetz calls Trump's comments from a videotape released Friday "some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine."
Chaffetz tells Fox 13 of Salt Lake City he isn't sure who he'll vote for.
The congressman is among the first elected Republican officials — and the second from Utah — to turn their backs on Trump. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert announced earlier Friday that he would not vote for Trump.
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert is withdrawing his support for Donald Trump.
The Republican governor tweeted Friday night that that Trump's statements "are beyond offense and despicable."
Herbert says, "While I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton, I will not vote for Trump."
Herbert was an early Trump critic, but announced he would vote for him in August. He is among the first Republican officials in office to formally withdraw support for the Republican presidential nominee following the release of a tape that captured Trump making lewd comments about women.
