Trump entered Sunday night’s debate reeling from the release of a video showing him bragging about sexually assaulting women.
Since Friday night, dozens of Republicans have withdrawn their support — with many calling on him to drop out entirely.
Even Tic Tac, whose mints Trump said he used before forcing himself on women, condemned the Republican nominee.
But there is at least one person standing by his man: Scott Baio.
Baio, the actor best known for his role as Chachi on Happy Days, spoke on behalf of Trump at the Republican National Convention. He also appeared today on Fox News to talk about the tapes.
“[Donald Trump] talks like a guy. And ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you’re not around. So if you are offended about it, grow up.” Baio said.

Baio also claimed that women speak in a similar way “over white wine when you have your brunches.”
“This is the way the world works. It’s not a big thing,” Baio concluded.
Baio’s message sounds unhinged but it doesn’t differ substantially from the official message of the Trump campaign.
Rudy Guiliani, representing the campaign on CNN Sunday morning, said “men at times talk like that.”
“This is talk, and gosh almighty, he who hasn’t sinned, throw the first stone here,” Guiliani added.
Saturday night, Carl Paladino, the co-chair of Trump’s campaign in New York, said Trump’s comments were something “all men do, at least all normal men.”
