The second presidential debate kicked off on Sunday, Oct. 9 at Washington University in St. Louis. Sunday's debate was especially important given its timing in the midst of yet another disturbing scandal facing the Trump campaign. Over the weekend, The Washington Post released tapes from 2005 of former reality TV star and GOP nominee Donald Trump bragging about his ability to grope women because of his "star" status. As Trump prepares for the second debate, where he will likely have to address the recording's content, there are a number of memes that will help get you through the night with a little comic relief.
It has been a rough past year watching the Trump train tear down the country, and he did it really fast. Since June 2015 when he announced his campaign, Trump has come after undocumented immigrants, the Mexican community, black Americans, Muslims, the LGBTQ community, the disabled, women, and those with intersecting identities.
His most recent troubling release not only targets women, but also specifically victims and survivors of sexual violence. While some have suggested that Trump's disgusting comments amounted to simple "men's locker room banter," we, who have experienced the violence that Trump can be heard describing in those tapes, are not interested in apologist rhetoric. In truth, the last 72 hours have proven that Trump's is a sinking ship, so let's all get on board and watch.
In order to hopefully get through what can only be another night of gaslighting from the Republican nominee, here are the Trump memes that can make us laugh along the way.
