Okay, I made up the word “repugnancy.” Have a better one? There may be more where the latest Trump leak came from. Rachel Maddow reports:

What they’re saying in terms of this behavior is that this happened on set, this is how Donald Trump behaved on set during the production of the show. They’re saying this stuff never made air, it was never broadcast, but multiple, multiple, multiple witnesses saw it happen on the set of that TV show…


The reason everybody wants access, not just to what was on TV, but to the production material that went into making that show, the behind the scenes stuff, the stuff that was left on the cutting room floor. The reason everybody is looking for that now and gunning for that now is because of the fact that we shouldn’t just have to rely on the statements of multiple people who were there and say they saw it happen. We shouldn’t have to rely on the statements of the crew members and the cast members and the people on set in order to check out for ourselves whether these allegations are true in order to assess whether there really is evidence of Donald Trump’s very bad behavior in a workplace environment. According to the Associated Press, this story they produced and published on Monday, according to them, we should be able to see Donald Trump’s sexist, lewd, borderline harassing workplace behavior because it happened on camera. We should be able to see the tape of it. They didn’t broadcast it. But it reportedly exists.
