Donald Trump Says Something Stupid # 33: Trump Agrees With His Own Statement That We Should Expect Rapes In Our Military! (VIDEO)

Last night both presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump spoke at NBC News' "Commander-In-Chief Forum". For the most part Clinton walked away unscathed but for Trump it was a different story.

While sitting in front of veterans of all ages and ranks Trump was asked various questions by host Matt Lauer about the military.

During the forum Trump was asked by an audience member who was concerned for his daughter's safety as she is considering serving in the military. His fear stemmed from the disturbing statistics on sexual assault that occur in our armed forces.

Here was Trump's reply...

"It’s a great question. And it’s a massive problem. The numbers are staggering, hard to believe, even. But we’re going to have to run it very tight. I at the same time want to keep the court system within the military. I don’t think it should be outside of the military. But we have to come down very, very hard on that."

After Trump gave that mish mash of gibberish to the man the show host Matt Lauer pointed out that Trump had already tweeted what he though about that subject.

Matt Lauer...

"In 2013, on this subject, you tweeted this, quote, '26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military, only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men and women together?'"

Here is the tweet...



Trump...

"Well, it is — it is — it is a correct tweet. There are many people that think that that’s absolutely correct. And we need to have a…"

Lauer...

"So this should have been expected? And does that mean the only way to fix it is to take women out of the military?"

Trump...

"Well, it’s happening, right? And, by the way, since then, it’s gotten worse. No, not to take them out, but something has to be happen. Right now, part of the problem is nobody gets prosecuted. You have reported and — the gentleman can tell you, you have the report of rape and nobody gets prosecuted. There are no consequence."

Watch Trump defend the indefensible here...
