In audio comments leaked from a private meeting held last night in The Dells, Wisc., Republican Presidential candidate Donald L. Trump has found himself entrapped in another controversy regarding women issues. Seemingly doubling down on his controversial statement regarding punishment for woman having abortion if the procedure was criminalized, Trump said that domestic violence laws applied against men should be loosened.

The topic came up as Trump was speaking to the pro-men's group A Voice For Men, Trump was asked by the groups President Frank Grimes how he felt about bi-partisan efforts to address sentencing guidelines in criminal cases.

"I think they should be addressed, but only in specific cases," he said. "I think we ought to continue to uphold capitol punishment. We should severely punish those Bernie Sanders supporters who are disrupting my great rallies, with my great supporters, but there are other areas where we should change the laws; domestic violence for instance. What purpose does it serve to punish a man when his wife gets out of line." 

Trump added "women rarely are charged with domestic violence, so lets just be equal about this, OK, alright!" 

Trump went on to say that while he has never hit any of his wives or mistresses, there were times "where they would have been well served with a good old-fashioned ass-kicking."

Sensing the controversy of his words as they flowed from his mouth, Trump said that he has been a "spectacular husband and I have had the utmost respect for these gorgeous women who've I allowed to be part of my life." 

In other topics Trump said he would only nominate a Supreme Court Justice who will "absolutely reverse Rove v. Wade and return our country to the greatness of the 1950s. You know, before the Warren court screwed everything up for us."

This is the latest in a series of recent missteps for the reputed billionaire real estate developer. Recent polls have demonstrated that Trump's increasingly anti-women stances are hurting his prospects and the entire Republican ticket.

"I could care less if it is April Fool's day or not," Trump said in a follow-up interview. "I'm not fooling around when I say I want to return the United States to the 1950s."
