A future state representative is taking issue with Gov. Matt Bevin’s recent comparison of sexually aggressive comments made by Donald Trump to rap music, video games and movies.
Attica Scott, a former Louisville Metro councilwoman, said Bevin’s comments were out of line for the governor’s office. Scott said for the governor to compare Trump’s remarks bragging about sexually harassing and groping women to anything “is inappropriate.”
“What does this say for me as a woman going to serve in Frankfort when our governor is willing to make excuses for a candidate for president and the way in which this candidate feels comfortable violating women’s bodies, bodies like my own,” she said.
On the Terry Meiners show on WHAS Tuesday, Bevin said that Trump’s comments bragging about groping and sexually harassing women were offensive, but then said critics of Trump’s language were hypocritical because they consume “the very same type of trash in movies and music and video games.”
Bevin specifically highlighted those who listen to rap music, read “Fifty Shades of Gray” and play the video game “Grand Theft Auto.”
