Susan Page: Trump’s Hot Mic Comments ‘a Political Apocalypse’

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” while discussing the lewd comments Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump made while being recorded in 2005 on a hot microphone, the Washington bureau chief for USA Today Susan Page called it a “political apocalypse.”

Page said, “We have never seen anything like this before in modern American politics. It wast just Republicans, the Republican national chairman released a statement criticizing him, the highest ranking Republican in the nation House Speaker Paul Ryan dis-invited him to  share a stage with him in  Wisconsin, Senators in tough races are withdrawing their endorsement of him. This is a political apocalypse. And it is sort of — we have had October surprises before, we have never had something like this in which a candidate survived and gone on to win the election.”
