After Melania Trump tried to explain away her husbands genital-grabbing remarks, people piled on with the Twitter hashtag #BillyBushMadeMeDoIt
Melania Trump defended her husbands remarks about groping women without their permission on Monday night, blaming Billy Bush for egging him on. Her defense spawned its own hashtag: #BillyBushMadeMeDoIt.
In her first interview since the release of hot-mic videotapes of Donald Trump boasting that his reputation allowed him to grab girls by the pussy, Melania Trump rejected the comments as boy talk and said her husband was led on by Billy Bush to tell dirty and bad stuff.
The 2005 recording of Trump and the television host Billy Bush was released earlier this month. In it, Trump discussed building sex advances against girls, while Billy Bush laughed and commented on women appearances. When youre a superstar, hey let you do it. You can do anything. Grab em by the pussy. You can do anything, Trump said.
The videotapes release caused widespread dispute, creating a backlash among Republican leaders who disavowed their partys nominee. Numerous women came forward, accusing the Republican nominee of sex misconduct in numerous incidents over 30 years.
On Twitter, #BillyBushMadeMeDoIt rapidly became used to dismiss Melanias explanation, blaming Bush for many other unrelated things such as Ryan Lochtes false theft assert at the Rio Olympics and to wonder how easily influenced Trump must be.
