I used an expression - you know, there's an expression but under the rules of MeToo I'm not allowed to use that expression anymore.

But Twitter users largely speculated he meant the saying, "the one that got away". It's the person that got away.

President Donald Trump on Thursday defended holding a political rally for his 2020 reelection campaign as a record-breaking hurricane slammed Florida, claiming without evidence that "thousands" were lined up for the rally more than a day ahead of time. "I would do it except for these people up there".

As Hurricane Michael pounded Florida, President Donald Trump took shelter at a campaign event in Pennsylvania, where he sought to boost Republicans before the midterms. "Did you hear what he said?" he said imitating reporters. "President Trump's op-ed was treated like other column submissions; we check factual assertions while allowing authors wide leeway to express their opinions".

"That's pretty good, right?" he asked. They have been invigorated by the successful nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and are seeking to use the contentious moment to unify the GOP and stave off Democratic energy at the polls.

After his comments about the hurricane, Trump pivoted to the midterms, celebrating Kavanaugh's appointment despite Democratic opposition and sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Trump acknowledged the hurricane at the top of his rally Wednesday night in Erie, offering his "thoughts and prayers" to those 1in the storm's path and promising to "spare no effort" in the response.

In 2012, Trump tweeted that Barack Obama, "campaigned with JayZ & Springsteen while Hurricane Sandy victims across NY & NJ are still decimated by Sandy". He did so while simultaneously mocking Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA and saying that should she win the Democratic nomination in 2020 and they were to debate, he would toss an ancestry test to her and dare her to take it.

They came forward in the wake of a 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape that was released in October 2016 in which he is caught saying on a hot mic: "And when you're a star, they let you do it". Grab them by the p***y.
