In a deep and unsettling dive into the Republican presidential frontrunner’s past relationships and encounters with women from The New York Times, we get a portrait that we knew was coming—but is no less creepy.
The anecdotes include Trump asking his date to “rate” his ex-girlfriend and ex-wife; Trump telling a female employee that “men tend to be better than women;” Trump commenting on that same employee’s weight gain by saying, “You like your candy.”
But the most upsetting bit of the piece comes when Trump allegedly asked Brook Antoinette Mahealani Lee, Miss Universe at the time, what she thought about his daughter, Ivanka.
“ ‘Don’t you think my daughter’s hot? She’s hot, right?’ ” Ms. Lee recalled him saying. ‘I was like, ‘Really?’ That’s just weird. She was 16. That’s creepy.”
Still, all this, for Trump, is actually pretty routine—this is the same man who once said to a female contestant on The Apprentice, “That must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees.” He’s also the same man who appears in this photo with that same daughter, Ivanka, so, should we really be shocked?
