Report: White House Spokesperson Called Trump ‘A Deplorable’
White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah called then-candidate Donald Trump a "deplorable" after watching Access Hollywood footage of Trump boasting of grabbing women, New York Magazine reports. Shah, who was then a staffer with the Republican National Committee, texted an RNC colleague that he was "kinda enjoying" the fallout over the Access Hollywood tape, calling it "some justice. I honestly don’t think it’s the worst thing he’s done but he somehow got passes for the other acts." Shah reportedly added that "Trump is a deplorable.” While working for the RNC, Shah also helped locate damaging footage of Trump that was later used in a Jeb Bush campaign video, New York Magazine reports.
