The Question Is, Why Does Donald Trump Have A 'Type' When It Comes To Rape ?

President* Trump was accused of rape the other day by a New York city advice columnist, E. Jean Carroll. The woman claims that in the mid 1990's she encountered Trump in an upscale department store and in the midst of some flirting about lingerie he took her to a dressing room and violently sexually assaulted her, including brief penetration.
In his denial Trump first said "she's not my type" and then denied that he even knew E. Jean Carroll.
We all know that Trump is not articulate or accurate in the usage of words, but it seems a little extra excruciating to see the president of the United States dismiss a rape allegation with the observation that the victim is not sexually attractive to him.
This would seem to imply that there is a "type" of woman that Trump would consider raping, but he's likely too dimwitted to realize that. Or he doesn't care.
We have a year and a half to the election. How many more dozens or hundreds of bizarre comments like this is the President* going to make?
Will ANY Republicans or right wing conservatives voice an objection to his loutish behavior. It doesn't look like it.
