WEATHER ALERT: Damaging Wind Gusts Possible | Forecast | BlogRadar | Weather App | Closings

BOSTON (CBS) – In the public discussion that has followed the disclosure of Donald Trump’s vulgar remarks to the D-list celebrity he was trying to ingratiate himself with back in 2005, there have been a lot of self-appointed experts claiming to know the truth about what “guys” talk about in private.

One example – a Z-list celebrity – who I won’t name for fear it would help him move up to the Y list – who was once, briefly, a teenage sitcom star, went on cable TV to say: “If you were offended [by what Trump said], grow up, because this is what guys talk about when you’re not around.”

The truth is, I can’t vouch for what every one of the 120 million adult males in America say.

But it’s been my experience that while some “guys” may sometimes say things that expose their ignorance and self-loathing, actual “men” never do.

“Men” are former boys who have grown up and embraced all the responsibilities that come with adulthood.

They behave responsibly in the workplace, treating their female colleagues with professionalism and respect.

They show courtesy to others in their public social lives, treating them as they would want to be treated and setting a positive example at all times.

And most of all, they treat the people in their private lives with love and tenderness, always making sure their loved ones are taken care of before tending to their own needs.

Some “guys” may lie, cheat, bully and steal; real “men” do not.

So it seems to me it’s not the men offended by Trump’s ludicrous behavior who need to “grow up.”

That’s what the arrested-development cases defending him should be focusing on.

    Where is your piece on the recent wikileaks emails? They show corruption in the news media, DOJ, IRS, FBI, the list is endless. Yeah lets ignore real criminal activity and pound on Trump for some dirty talk……And Jon wonders why the majority of Americans don’t trust the media.

  2. paul dowd says:

    “Arrested-development cases” are boys walking around in fully developed adult male bodies. Their minds didn’t grow up with their bodies. Some of them feel that they have a right to have their way with any female they want because she was dressed “provocatively” or she “wanted it”. Trump thinks his “star” status excludes him from laws that protect people from sexual assault. It’s hard to understand how fully mentally developed voters can want a president who talks and acts like a little boy in an old man’s body.

      Tiger Woods, Bill Clinton, Jeffrey Epstein, and the sex offender in the next town come quickly to mind when I read your posts.

    Well known idiot Jon Keller, must have gotten his marching orders to try and change the narrative away from the latest batch of the Clinton campaigns emails to be released and help keep the plebeians unaware and compliant.

    Not even a peep from him about how unethical it is for the Globe coordinating coverage with the Clinton campaign. That is most likely because WBZ is doing the same thing and is afraid they will get caught as well.

    1. bees_knees_6 says:

      Or he could discuss the email planning to destroy Ryan.

    2. mstarvin says:

      What should concern every American is the email to Obama from Hillary stating that she has evidence that Saudi Arabia and Qatar are funding ISIS…she later changed her tune shortly after both gave $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. How can those who support her ignore this level of global corruption? These aren’t just dirty words these are real crimes!!

  4. bees_knees_6 says:

    This is not what men discuss. This is not locker room talk. This is vile and revolting and beyond being excused by anyone other than those who are equally vile and revolting.

    1. mstarvin says:

      Spent a lot of time in men’s locker rooms have you bees?? Oh let me guess your husband told you that they never talk dirty in the locker rooms right…..LOL. No wonder Hillary can pull the wool over your eyes so easily!!

      1. paul dowd says:

        Maybe you should not drag Bees’s late husband into the gutter with you while she is still grieving his death.

      2. bees_knees_6 says:

        You could spend the rest of your life showing humility and kindness and respect and never come close to the man my husband was. Fortunately, there are far more men in the world like he was and like Rowdy is than there are poor excuses such as you.

      3. mstarvin says:

        Oh please you know nothing about me and I know nothing about you but please stop preaching how men should talk…you don’t know sh1t. Men tell nasty jokes and brag about sexual conquests in locker rooms. We make fun of each other’s anotomy and realize that it means nothing…just like the Trump tape means nothing. You left winger losers are trying to make this out to be some great compass of morality…please who do you think you hypocrites are kidding?? Wikileaks is showing just how deep the corruption associated with liberals and Hillary runs and you all are choosing to ignore it…so please shove you phony concern for Trump’s comments up you pompous liberal a55es!!

      Ever been in a men’s locker room before?

      1. bees_knees_6 says:

        Not since Ted Williams retired.

        I do suspect the NFL and other sports players who have stated this is not locker room talk have.

        What amazed me is that the conservative posters on here seem to want to drag decent people – who are the majority – down to their level. Another layer of conservatism I suppose.

    3. jerry2286 says:

      I hate to tell you this, but that is how real men talk to each other. Perhaps your husband is one of those neutered, effeminate, liberal pansies we always see on the news trying to justify globalism.

      1. paul dowd says:

        No Jerry they don’t. Those are immature man-boys you hang out with that talk like that. If what you claim is true then why do you hate to say it?

      2. bees_knees_6 says:

        Thank you, jerry — or are you a second name for another here — for what is clearly a view into the mind of conservative males…..gentlemen are a problem and pigs are acceptable and welcome.

      3. The Owl says:

        In your circle of friends, Jerry, they might be as vulgar as you seem to want to think men are.

        But not in mine.

  5. Bear Walker says:

    I’d rather talk about the wiki leaks dump but the media is going along with this “wag the dog” about Russia, what Trump said years ago, etc.

    Really, each day stinks more than the last. I will not vote for Trump, but it’s become so obvious the media is ignoring the elephant in the room.

    Jon is above that I believe, but I’ve already heard what Trump said years ago – it’s been talked about to death already. Can we now talk about what the DNC and Clinton is up to right now? Will anyone?

    We are so f’n screwed.

  6.

  7. hammerhead says:

    once again the Libs like Keller are all crickets over Hillary, Obama and slick willy

  8. mikey says:

    When it comes to morals and decency, Trump should be a participant on the Jerry Springer Show – not running for president.

    1. mstarvin says:

      And Hillary should be in prison with most of Obama’s cabinet and appointees. There is a HUGE difference between talking nasty and committing treasonous acts….Hillary falls in the later.

      1. mikey says:

        The direction this country is headed in reminds me of “The Fall of the Roman Empire.”

  9. Joyce says:

    The only thing you Mr Keller and WBZ report is what YOU and your MORON station what people to hear, instead of reporting the entire news like how Hillary should be in prison and how much of a liar she is, she is the murderer of the people in Benghazi. WBZ AND YOU MR KELLAR, ARE TOTAL MORONS, AND YOU BOTH ARE IN HILLARY’S POCKET

  10. mstarvin says:

    Wikileak email show that most major networks, NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN as well as the NYT and Boston Globe coordinate attacks on Trump and give Hillary veto power over what they say about her. So what does this tell us??? We are being systematically overthrown by a globalist based bunch of criminals. Add to this the email that show she can easily be bought off by any rogue nations via a large donation to the Clinton Foundation and any real American has to wonder…How can anyone vote for her??? Have we become so accustom to corruption that we don’t care if we become a third world banana republic as long as we have our “smart” phones and facebook????
