Choose carefully


NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. — Former president Donald Trump is making a closing pitch for a Republican gubernatorial candidate who has been accused of sexually assaulting multiple women, stepping deeper into a primary that has divided Republicans in this staunchly conservative state.

When in doubt, always go for the rapey guy. Rapey guys gotta stick together.

Trump appeared at a Sunday afternoon rally in Greenwood with Charles Herbster, a businessman who has advised the former president on agricultural policy and has donated to his campaigns. The visit comes after a recent Nebraska Examiner report in which eight women, including a state senator speaking on the record, accused Herbster of touching them inappropriately. Last week, another one of the eight women alleged on the record that Herbster had groped her. He has denied the accusations.

All of them. All eight. Who ya gonna believe, a businessman or eight women? How about eight hundred women? It’s the businessdude every time.

According to state Sen. Julie Slama (R), Herbster reached up her skirt without her consent and touched her inappropriately as she walked by during a local Republican fundraiser in a crowded ballroom in 2019. 

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that if his hand is up her skirt he’s already “touching her inappropriately,” no matter what bit he manages to grab en route, no matter if all he manages is the back of a thigh just barely above the knee. That whole thing is inappropriate. One doesn’t want strangers thrusting their hands inside one’s clothes uninvited.

Multiple women told the Nebraska Examiner that Herbster touched them inappropriately when they greeted him or posed for a photo.

Therefore Trump went all the way to Nebraska to urge the people to vote for him. What a mensch.
