Perhaps you missed the latest thing actor Scott Baio had to say about his hero Donald Trump. Because he's Scott Baio. Or because it was on Fox News. Or because you were drinking yourself into a stupor in preparation for last night's presidential debate when Baio appeared on Fox News to defend Trump's misogynist, sexually aggressive statements.

"I like Trump because Trump is not a politician, he talks like a guy," said Chachi. "Ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you're not around. So if you're offended by it, grow up, ok? And by the way, this is what YOU guys talk about when you have your white wine at brunches." (Fact check: no.)

He went on to defend Trump's disturbing comments and also remind you ladies that, "This is the way the world works. It's not a big thing." No, Scott Baio, this is rape culture.
