Another GOP expert on sexual assault backs Trump

Stupid party alert and update: Remember when Missouri GOP US Senate candidate Todd Akin blew up his all-but-certain election when he got into the particulars of what he called "legitimate rape?"

I wonder if there will be blowback against sitting GOP Alabama US Senator Jeff Sessions - -a lawyer, former federal prosecutor and Alabama Attorney general

- - who opined to The Weekly Standard that grabbing a woman's genitalia as Trump had bragged on tape he'd done whenever he chose to exercise that celebrity privilege was not sexual assault

Good thing the US Senate had earlier kept Sessions off the Federal bench before he joined the Senate and now can gets to vote to confirm other judges and Supreme Court justices' nominations.

TWS: Would you characterize the behavior described in that [video] as sexual assault if that behavior actually took place? 
SESSIONS: I don't characterize that as sexual assault. I think that's a stretch...
