A recently uncovered clip from a 1994 episode of “Lifestyle of The Rich And Famous” was shown on Comedy Central and left host Trevor Noah with a bad case of the oogies…as it will you.
“Donald, what does Tiffany have of yours and what does she have of Marla’s?” the show’s host, Robin Leach, asked, referring to Trump’s then one-year-old daughter and her mother and Trump’s second wife, Marla Maples.
“I think she’s got a lot of Marla, she’s a beautiful baby. She’s got beautiful legs. We don’t know if she’s got this part yet,” Trump said, as he cupped his hands under his chest to signify breasts, “But time will tell.”
Who thinks like that? Who says things like that on TV if they are sick enough to think it?
Said Noah: “Back in 1994, Donald Trump was asked what attributes his 1-year-old daughter shared with his wife. He could have said anything and he went with legs and… boobs? Which is not the correct answer. In fact, we would have accepted any other body part.”
The man is revolting. Are his supporters so “angry” that they are willing to inflict this repulsive, diseased low-life on the nation as the ultimate act of hate? Are his admirers really this devoid of standards and decency?
Note also that Democrats are wedded to the false theory that this kind of conduct doesn’t matter-–after all, it’s only character! Character isn’t relevant, for only issues matter. I heard Bernie Sanders say this just the other day, explaining why he doesn’t think Hillary’s deceptions, machinations and lies about her email and the Clinton Foundation are worthy of his attention. Of course character matters, because leadership depends on character. Of course the fact that a candidate for President has a character marked by dishonesty and untrustworthiness is an issue: there is no more vital issue. I am grateful to Trump in a way: he has bolstered my side of an argument I have had fought many times in comment threads here. How can anyone observe Trump, listen to how he talks, ponder the total lack of civility, respect, dignity and decency he displays on a regular basis, and maintain that none of this raises legitimate concerns about his fitness to serve as the nation’s leader.
The man openly and shamelessly speculated on his infant daughter’s potential breast development on national TV. It is signature significance: no one who isn’t pathological creep would ever consider such conduct.
