...constituting a sex crime pretty much everywhere (NRS 201.210 in Nevada), I've been thinking: How many women have accused Trump of crimes on the order of Weinstein, Louis C.K. and the like?
16, as it turns out:

I suspect at this point that Trump was simply being a braggart in his conversation with Billy Bush.
I think you're likely right that he was bragging, but I think you're wrong that he wasn't telling the truth.
I also suspect he has enough game to get laid consensually.
That's not what sexual assault is about, generally speaking.
Most of the allegations of sexual misconduct against him (whuddya know, there's a whole Wikipedia article on the subject, that might answer my question) seem to be fall short of rape.
So, "most" of his assaults weren't rape, so he's not a rapist? I believe this is the "Angus the wall-builder" defense.
Given the choice between the two, I would voted for Hillary, despite not agreeing with her on anything that would actually affect her decision making as president.
Yes, but you could say that about literally every candidate running for every office in every jurisdiction! I don't vote for pope for the same reason.
