There’s an old saying that goes like this: When someone shows you who they really are, you should believe them.
Over the course of his life, and especially over the past few days, Donald Trump has repeatedly shown us that he is a misogynist, someone who finds sexual abuse of women humorous, and a vile human being who is lower than a cockroach.
So it should come as no surprise to hear that Donald Trump once said that the real “travesty” about Mike Tyson’s 1992 rape conviction was the fact that Tyson was the real victim in the matter.
Speaking to Howard Stern in 1992, Trump also said he felt Tyson should be allowed to continue fighting and pay his victim for the crime of rape. His reasoning is incredible:
“The proceeds from his next fight, his next two fights for rape victims, and I think that’s a lot better than having Mike Tyson serve jail for 10 years or something.
“He was so incredible and the last few years he’s just not been the same — number one he’s not been the same fighter, he’s not been the same man, he’s not been the same anything.”
Yes, based on Trump’s flawed logic, Tyson was the victim, the one we should feel sorry for:
“I’ve seen women going around touching him. He walks in a room and the women start grabbing him and grabbing his ass and grabbing anything else they can grab on him.”
Oh, and Mike Tyson repaid the kindness, endorsing Trump in his bid for the White House. Trump made the announcement via Twitter in October of 2015:

Do we need any further proof that Donald Trump is the biggest pig walking the planet? Hold that thought, because something tells me we’ll get lots more examples in the days ahead, directly from Trump’s fat mouth.
Here’s audio of Trump talking to Howard Stern in 1992:
