Trump: another of the rich and powerful being a law unto themselves?

What do you think:

  • Is fame the ultimate excuse?
  • Where do we draw the line: assault, murder, genocide?

 Trump’s comments revealing his attitude and behaviour towards women were awful enough.

But isn’t the main point that, in his experience, he could get away with such behaviour because he was a “star”?

We’ve heard it before: movie and sports stars, politicians and more whose crimes have been protected, obscured, ignored and tolerated by the hangers-on who benefit from them.

Isn’t this the root of the Jimmy Saville story: decades of sexual assault on children protected by his “celebrity”?
