Fury as Nigel Farage defends Donald Trump’s ‘grab by the p***y’ sexual assault comments

Can you spot a Tory election lie?

Take the Lie Detector

Nigel Farage provoked a backlash on the ITV “leaders debate” last night, as he attempted to defend President Donald Trump’s past comments on sexual assault.


Speaking on the seven-way debate, Farage downplayed Trump’s remarks, saying “men say dreadful things sometimes”.

He continued to say: “if all of us were caught out on what we’ve said on a night out after a drink, none of us would be here.”

Farage was referring to a tape of Donald Trump, released in 2016, where the American bragged about grabbing women “by the p***y”.

Trump was not on a night out when he made these comments. And neither was he drunk. The President famously doesn’t drink.

Needless to say, Farage’s remarks generated a furious reaction on stage, with Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson asking the Brexit Party autocrat whether he made jokes about sexual assault on nights out.

Nicola Sturgeon added: “Donald Trump, amongst many other things, demonizes immigrants, so it’s no wonder Nigel Farage really likes him.”

Nigel Farage has given Britain a bad name for far too long. Call on him to ditch politics for good.
