Think You're Numb to Trump's Grossness? This Quote Will Test That
I’m sure most, if not all, reached our limit with Trump’s mouth sounds. Of course, I wish he would just go away, and I also wish that we lived in a world where he would if only we ignored him. But we don’t and he isn’t, at least not yet. So as long as a presidential frontrunner keeps saying disgustingly misogynistic things— or past horribleness gets shoved back into our present consciousness— I’m of the belief that we shouldn’t ignore those words. As long as any of us have friends or coworkers or relatives who think that voting for this man is anything but the endorsement of a dangerous, sexist and racist bigot, I feel it’s our duty to point out just how disgusting and stupid he is.
So how disgusting and stupid is he today? We’ve been over the gross way that he talks about his daughter, Ivanka. He’s said on multiple occasions that he’s attracted to her sexually, and that if he weren’t his father he would— never mind I can’t finish that thought.
What we didn’t know, or had once known but repressed for obvious reasons, is that this kind of talk hasn’t just been limited to Ivanka. He’s also spoken this way about his other daughter, Tiffany. And this grossness started a long time ago. No, longer than whatever you’re thinking. Like, 22 years ago. When Tiffany was an infant.
The team at The Daily Show dug up this clip from a 1994 episode of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, in which Robin Leach asked Trump what characteristics Tiffany got from him and what she got from her mother, Trump’s second wife Marla Maples. Because Tiffany is a female baby, he immediately, of course, goes to physical attributes, because THAT’S WHAT WOMEN ARE TO HIM. I honestly can’t stomach taking the time to transcribe the exact response, but if you can’t watch the video, he says, in short, that this baby has her mother’s legs and “time will tell” if she has her mother’s tit genes too.
So just remember, every time you meet someone who supports Trump, that person honestly thinks our next president should be a man who literally cannot think about a woman— EVEN A BABY WHO IS HIS OWN DAUGHTER— as anything but a rating of their legs and boobs.
