Trump and women; the election in Pa.

Listen 00:48:30

Guests: Charlie Gerow, Mona Charen, Rebecca Traister

Since the Access Hollywood hot-mic video leaked over a week ago, nine women have come forward alleging that Donald Trump sexually assaulted them.  The presidential candidate has sharply denied these accusations and has fought back by implying that some of his accusers aren’t attractive enough for him to harass.  Trump has also continued to point to evidence of Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct.  Trump has also been strongly asserting that the election is rigged and has suggested the need for drug testing before the next debate.  So what affect has all this had on the Trump ticket, the election, and women.  We’ll talk with the National Review’s MONA CHAREN and New York Magazine’s REBECCA TRAISTER.  But first we check in how the Trump strategy is shaking out on Pennsylvania with Harrisburg-based Republican strategist with CHARLIE GEROW of Quantum Communications.
