Debunked Love Child Rumor May Have Exposed Trump's Disturbing Views on Race and Biology

During the ongoing hush-money trial involving payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels, a rumor resurfaced suggesting that Donald Trump had fathered a child out of wedlock with a former employee. Prosecutors questioned David Pecker, the publisher of the National Enquirer, about payments made to Trump Tower doorman Dino Sajudin to keep quiet about the alleged affair with a housekeeper resulting in a secret love child.

However, the story has been widely debunked by several journalists, including Ronan Farrow, who have investigated the claim and concluded that no such child exists. The unnamed housekeeper and her daughter have also denied the story.

This is not about whether Trump had a secret love child with his housekeeper. This is about why Donald Trump thought it was impossible to have a secret love child with his Hispanic housekeeper. Specifically, I refer you to these posts from NYTimes reporters Maggie Haberman and Jonah Bromwich, who were covering the trail from inside the courtroom.

In the exchange, Trump seems to suggest to Michael Cohen that it would be “impossible” for him to father a child with the housekeeper because “he was German-Irish and the woman was Hispanic.”

My question is this: Why did Trump and/or Michael Cohen believe it was impossible for Trump to father a child with a Hispanic woman? There are two possible interpretations. Is it because 1) Trump would never sleep with a Hispanic woman, or 2) he somehow believes someone with Irish-German DNA cannot physically have a child with a woman who is Hispanic?

It is also possible/likely that both racism and idiocy play a role. Trump’s history of making offensive statements about various racial and ethnic groups suggests his views are influenced by racist attitudes. At the same time, his frequent misstatements and apparent lack of knowledge on any number of subjects — including the use of bleach to kill the COVID-19 virus — suggest that ignorance may also be a factor.

To be clear: Irish and Mexican ancestry do not cancel each other out in the baby-making process! In fact, though it’s not the best example, it’s how we ended up with Louis Alfred Székely, best known as Louis C.K.
