The Trump sex tape has even influenced his most TV savvy spokesperson to not show up this morning. Giuliani laughingly made reference to a scheduling problem.
October 9, 2016

Kellyanne Conway, Trump's combative campaign manager and frequent TV surrogate cancelled late last night on Fox News and Chris Wallace during the fall out of the release of Donald's sex tape.

Fox News Sunday's host Chris Wallace opened this morning with Trump's most vocal advisor, Rudy Giuliani replacing Conway and Wallace said, "Mayor, Giuliani, we had booked Kellyanne Conway, the campaign manager for this morning, but late last night the campaign pulled her and said that you were going to be our guest - was Kellyanne Conway unwilling to defend trump's remarks about women?"

Giuliani said Conway wasn't going to defend the remarks, pivoted to Hillary and said, "I think this is a question of scheduling and not being willing to explain."

Sunday talk shows are big deals for politicians, especially after nightmare scenarios and campaign managers don't suddenly come up with a scheduling problem, Rudy.

Trump needs as many female faces as he can get to try and put a friendly face on his vulgar and sexual predatory antics and Rudy is not that face.

In general elections, a small dip in any demographic could be disastrous for a candidate and if 12% of Republicans believe Trump should drop out, this could have a dramatic effect.

And by the way, Reince Priebus was also replaced on CBS' Face The Nation with Rudy Giuliani as well.
