Donald Trump in His Own Words: Fact-Checking Trump
Donald Trump is convicted by his own words as a racist, a chauvinist and an intolerant bigot. Most of this fact-checking consists of simply quoting what Trump said in public, on the record. Here is Donald Trump in his own absurd, buffoonish, incongruous words.
Cannonball! Donald "Trump of Doom" enters the American political waters, causing a mass Exodus ... but can he really walk on water as his fervent and fervid disciples believe?

Donald Trump in His Own Words:
Donald Trump: "[Putin's] not going into Ukraine, OK, just so you understand. He's not going to go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down. You can take it anywhere you want." To which George Stephanopoulos replied: "Well, he's already there, isn't he?" Trump is such a know-nothing that he didn't know Crimea was part of Ukraine. And of course Putin did invade mainland Ukraine, proving Trump a false prophet.
Trump has repeatedly heaped praise on Putin: calling the Russian despot a "strong leader" and saying Putin gets an "A" for leadership. Trump called Putin "savvy" and a "genius" for invading Ukraine and mass-murdering Ukrainian children and their mothers. Trump even called Putin's excuse for murdering women and children "wonderful."
Trump proposed a tax plan with a "Trump Loophole" that gave the wealthy a backdoor tax cut, establishing a 15% rate for billionaires ... like Donald Trump. And Trump has called himself "smart" for not paying his fair share of taxes despite his wealth and all his country has done for him.
African Americans like Trump because they all have mug shots: "My mug shot, we've all seen the mug shot," said Trump. "And you know who embraced it more than anybody else: the black population."
Donald Trump's War on Women and Underage Girls
Trump bragged about groping "pussy" and doing "anything" he wants to women; ironically he was speaking about his access to bush, to Billy Bush of Access Hollywood on the set of the soap opera Days of Our Lives!
Trump admitted to Howard Stern that he was a pedophile who barged into the dressing rooms of teenage girls (some of them underage) to ogle them in the nude: "No men are anywhere, and I'm allowed to go in, because I'm the owner of the pageant and therefore I'm inspecting it. ... 'Is everyone OK?' You know, they're standing there with no clothes. 'Is everybody OK?'"
"Inspecting it" is no way for a man to talk about women, much less underage girls who should not be exposed to the leering eyes of adult men.
Rolling Stone observed that "From walking into a teen dressing room, to joking about his obligation to sleep with contestants, Donald Trump is a storied pageant creep."
BuzzFeed News reported that four girls in the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant said Trump walked into their dressing room while they were changing. Some were as young as 15 years old at the time. "I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, 'Oh my god, there's a man in here,' Mariah Billado, a former Miss Vermont Teen USA, told BuzzFeed. According to Billado, Trump said "something like 'Don't worry, ladies, I've seen it all before.'"
What a creep, and that's a sex crime aggravated by minors being involved.
Samantha Holvey, the 2006 Miss North Carolina, told CNN that during an event in New York City in the month before the pageant, Trump personally inspected each of the contestants. "He would step in front of each girl and look you over from head to toe like we were just meat, we were just sexual objects, that we were not people," Holvey said. "You know when a gross guy at the bar is checking you out? It’s that feeling."
Cassandra Searles, a contestant in the 2013 Miss USA pageant, confirmed Trump’s behavior in a Facebook post. Searles, who was Miss Washington, wrote: "Do y'all remember that one time we had to do our own stage introductions but this one guy treated us like cattle and made us do it again because we didn’t look him in the eyes? Do you also remember when he then proceeded to have us lined up so he could get a closer look at his property?"
Tasha Dixon, Miss Arizona in 2001, told the TV station CBS 2 Los Angeles that Trump just came "waltzing in" while contestants were nude or half-nude as they changed into bikinis. Dixon's account was chilling: "He just came strolling right in. There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Others girls were naked. Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half naked changing into our bikinis. To have the owner come waltzing in, when we’re naked, or half naked, in a very physically vulnerable position and then to have the pressure of the people that worked for him telling us to go fawn all over him, go walk up to him, talk to him, get his attention." Dixon accused Trump of buying the pageants so that he could take advantage of girls and young women: "I'm telling you Donald Trump owned the pageant for the reasons to utilize his power to get around beautiful women. Who do you complain to? He owns the pageant. There’s no one to complain to. Everyone there works for him."
Trump once said: "Women, you have to treat them like shit."
And you do, Donald, you do.
The Donald Trump war on women is largely one of verbal abuse, body-shaming and public humiliation. Here are some of the insulting terms Trump has used to publicly abuse women, so that he is condemned by his own words:
Brain Dead Puppets
Birdbrain and Nimbra (Nikki Haley)
Grotesque and Disgusting (Bette Midler)
Bimbo, Lightweight and Overrated (Megyn Kelly)

Miss Housekeeper and Miss Housecleaning (Alicia Machado, presumably because she is Latino and housecleaning is what female Latinos are good for, according to The Donald)
Trump's comments about women are disturbing and confirm a long-term pattern of bullying and verbal abuse. Here's an excerpt from a Slate article:
Before entering politics, Trump criticized Bill Clinton not for mistreating women, but for failing to find hotter mistresses. He once called [Paula] Jones a “loser” and said of the [Monica] Lewinsky scandal that “people would have been more forgiving” if Clinton had slept with “a really beautiful woman of sophistication.” Trump’s message in bringing up Bill’s adultery now is the same as the right-wing slogan he retweeted last year: “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” His belief that Bill Clinton’s affairs reflect badly on Hillary demonstrates something key to his psyche: For Trump, the only salient distinction when judging a women’s worth is whether she is fuckable or unfuckable. The fuckable/unfuckable schema is so deeply rooted in Trump that he can’t fully grasp that not everyone shares it. Consider how, the morning after Monday’s debate, he defended himself from Clinton’s accusation that he’d bullied former Miss Universe Alicia Machado for her weight. Speaking to Fox and Friends by phone, he said, “[S]he gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem.” On Wednesday night, speaking to Bill O’Reilly, he continued to paint himself as the victim of Machado’s sudden-onset unfuckability, suggesting that he deserves thanks for trying to save her job. “I did that with a number of young ladies,” he said. “Look what I get out of it. I get nothing.”
No one has a bigger mouth than Trump, but he said of Elizabeth Warren: "She's a woman that's been very ineffective, other than that she's got a big mouth."
Trump said in a tweet that Arianna Huffington "is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man―he made a good decision."
Trump said pregnancy is an "inconvenience" for a business and "for a person that is running a business" ... like Donald Trump.
Trump even body-shamed Kim Kardashian when she was pregnant, saying that she had become "large" and should watch the kind of clothes she wore in public!
One young female journalist who traveled with Trump remarked that she’s grown accustomed to hearing him use the same words—scum and sleazebags—to describe ISIS terrorists and American reporters. At his campaign events, Trump has had journalists consigned to pens and has even required them to have escorts for "potty breaks."
Trump said there must be "some form of punishment" for women who have abortions.
Chris Matthews: "Do you believe in punishment for abortion, yes or no as a principle?"
Donald Trump: "The answer is that there has to be some form of punishment."
Chris Matthews: "For the woman?"
Donald Trump: "Yes, there has to be some form."
"That would not be my first choice [to sexually assault on an airplane]." Trump's defense against accusations of rape and sexual assault is not that he wouldn't do such things, but that he would target more attractive women. But the women making the accusations were all very attractive women, and Trump confessed multiple times that he used his power as a rich, famous man, to have his way with women without bothering to ask their permission.
Sexual assaults are "to be expected" if women join the armed forces: "26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military, only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?" According to Trump's "logic" we should expect lots of sexual assaults at high schools, colleges, universities, and apartment buildings ... it's only natural, after all!
In the Access Hollywood video, Trump told Billy Bush: "I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there and she was married."

Trump mocked former Miss Universe Alicia Machado's weight and heritage, calling her "Miss Piggy," an "Eating Machine" and "Miss Housekeeping."
"I'm going to get the bathing suits to be smaller and the heels to be higher," was Trump's strategy for the beauty pageants he operated.
In defense of his focus strictly on beauty, Trump told a female reporter, "You wouldn't have your job if you weren't beautiful." The character, intelligence and competency of women mean nothing to Trump, the arch-chauvinist.
Trump said: "When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I'm basically the same ... The temperament is not that different." [Yes, he does seem like the playground bully who never grew up.]
Howard Stern: "Are you for invading Iraq?"
Donald Trump: "Yeah, I guess so. You know, I wish the first time it was done correctly." [In other words, Trump wished that the US had invaded Iraq during the Gulf War, so he had been an advocate of invading Iraq since 1990-1991.]
Donald Trump: "Now we should go in [to Libya], we should stop this guy, which would be very easy and very quick. We could do it surgically, stop him from doing it, and save these lives. This is absolutely nuts. We don't want to get involved and you're gonna end up with something like you've never seen before." [From the desk of Donald Trump, February 28, 2011]

Donald Trump: "When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They are not sending you. They are not sending you.

Donald Trump's Potty Mouth
Here are some of the more "colorful" potty words and terms employed by Donald Trump to describe women, his rivals and his critics: pussy, bimbo, gold digger, goofus, ugly, grotesque, "real killers," "brain dead puppets," crude, rude, obnoxious, strident, dumb, fat, "fat pigs," slobs, disgraceful, disgusting, "disgusting animals," "unattractive both inside and out," dogs, "sweating like a dog," "face of a dog," "cheated like a dog," "barking like a dog," "nervous mess," shaking, sleaze, sleazy, sleazebag, scum, perv, nasty, slime, slimy, sick, pathetic, unstable, "totally unstable individual," pathological, deviant, "basket case," "mental problem," choker, lightweight, "lightweight choker," "choke artist," "nervous wreck," weak, "weak as a baby," weakest, "little boy," "no chance," overrated, loser, "total loser," "total disaster," "low energy," liar, crazy, "lies like crazy," "the biggest liar I've ever seen," "the single biggest liar I've ever come across," dishonest, "very dishonest," moron, dope, dopey, fool, "jealous fool," "very foolish," worthless, stiff, "total stiff," "major inferiority complex," "truly weird," "spoiled brat," "without a properly functioning brain," "got schlonged," zero, thugs, "a total Bush-y" and so on.
Sexual Assault is Normal and to be Expected
A 2005 video published by the Washington Post captures the real, unfiltered Trump. Here’s what Trump claims a famous man like himself can do to women: “They let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy.” The recording was picked up on a hot mic when Trump made an appearance on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Ironically, Trump was talking about his free access to groping bush to Billy Bush of Access Hollywood; the recording picks up with Trump telling a story about hitting on an unidentified woman: “I did try and fuck her. She was married. I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. … I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there and she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything.” Moments later, Trump notices Arianne Zucker, the soap opera actress who would escort him and Bush to the set. Bush calls her “hot as shit.” Trump says that he should “use some Tic Tacs” in case he starts kissing her. “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait,” Trump said. “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”
Was Trump exaggerating? Not according to make-up artist Jill Harth, who said the recording of Trump bragging that his stardom allowed him to do whatever he wanted to women, including “grabbing them by the pussy,” came as no shock to her. “That was exactly what he did to me,” she told the Daily News. Harth sued Trump in 1997, claiming he sexually harassed her for years and attempted to rape her at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Harth said that in 1993 she and her fiancé, George Houraney, were working on a business deal with Trump. During a trip to the billionaire’s Florida mansion, Trump forced her into his daughter Ivanka's bedroom, threw her against a wall, then began kissing her, lifted up her dress, and tried to touch her private parts. This happened while her fiancé was in the next room. In Harth’s complaint, she said that at a dinner meeting at the Plaza Hotel, Trump groped her under the table repeatedly. The suit goes on to state that Trump introduced Harth to Plaza Hotel staff as his “new girlfriend” and, after a series of lewd comments about women, blurted out to Houraney, “You know, there’s going to be a problem. I’m very attracted to your girlfriend.” Harth had to physically push Trump away, told him to "stop it," and yet he kept coming back with more unwanted advances. Harth concluded: “If it’s not consensual and somebody pushes you up against a wall and is all over you? If I hadn’t pushed him away, I’m sure he would’ve just went for it. He was aggressive. And he has a sense of entitlement. And he thinks everybody’s in love with him — every woman. I’ve heard him say things like this.” Harth alleges that Trump continued to pressure her to leave Houraney, even as he was divorcing first-wife Ivana and dating would-be second wife Marla Maples. Harth found Trump's advances so offensive that at one point she "vomited profusely."
Trump confirmed his cavalier attitude toward sexual assault in one of his tweets. It's completely natural and to be expected for men to sexually assault women, according to The Donald! Here's what he tweeted about sexual assaults in the military: "26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military―only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?" In other words, if Trump were in the military, we should expect him to sexually assault women, unless they are kept out of his sight and mind! Shaming and blaming the victims seem to be part of his sick game.
Harth is the third woman to accuse Trump of sexual assault. The first was his first wife, Ivana Trump, who accused Trump of raping her when he became furious about a botched scalp reduction procedure performed by a doctor she had recommended to him. The third accuser was a minor at the time she alleges that Trump assaulted her. A lawsuit filed in a Manhattan federal court accused Trump of raping a 13-year-old girl in 1994, around the time of Harth’s alleged attacks. The rape allegedly took place during a party held at the home of Trump’s billionaire friend, Jeffrey Epstein, a notorious pedophile who served 13 months in jail for soliciting underage girls for sex. In the court filing, “Defendant Trump” allegedly “initiated sexual contact with Plaintiff at four different parties. On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied Plaintiff to a bed, exposed himself to Plaintiff, and then proceeded to forcibly rape Plaintiff. During the course of this savage sexual attack, Plaintiff loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but with no effect. Defendant Trump responded to Plaintiff’s pleas by violently striking Plaintiff in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted.” The lawsuit states that “Immediately following this rape, Defendant Trump threatened Plaintiff that, were she ever to reveal any of the details of the sexual and physical abuse of her by Defendant Trump, Plaintiff and her family would be physically harmed if not killed.” Another anonymous woman, identified as “Tiffany Doe,” corroborates those charges, and says she witnessed the rape. As AlterNet noted, “Tiffany Doe testified that between 1991 and 2001, Epstein put her on his payroll, tasking her with bringing underage girls to parties.”
NEW YORK (AP) — In his years as a reality TV boss on "The Apprentice," Donald Trump repeatedly demeaned women with sexist language, according to show insiders who said he rated female contestants by the size of their breasts and talked about which ones he'd like to have sex with. The Associated Press interviewed more than 20 people — former crew members, editors and contestants — who described crass behavior by Trump behind the scenes of the long-running hit show ... The staffers and contestants agreed to recount their experiences as Trump's behavior toward women has become a core issue in the presidential campaign. Interviewed separately, they gave concurring accounts of inappropriate conduct on the set. Eight former crew members recalled that he repeatedly made lewd comments about a camerawoman he said had a nice rear, comparing her beauty to that of his daughter, Ivanka. During one season, Trump called for female contestants to wear shorter dresses that also showed more cleavage, according to contestant Gene Folkes. Several cast members said Trump had one female contestant twirl before him so he could ogle her figure. Randal Pinkett, who won the program in December 2005 and who has recently criticized Trump during his run for president, said he remembered the real estate mogul talking about which female contestants he wanted to sleep with, even though Trump had married former model Melania Knauss earlier that year: "He was like 'Isn't she hot, check her out,' kind of gawking, something to the effect of 'I'd like to hit that.'" ... Former producer Katherine Walker said Trump frequently talked about women's bodies during the five seasons she worked with him and said he speculated about which female contestant would be "a tiger in bed." A former crew member who signed a non-disclosure agreement and asked not to be identified, recalled that Trump asked male contestants whether they would sleep with a particular female contestant, then expressed his own interest. "We were in the boardroom one time figuring out who to blame for the task, and he just stopped in the middle and pointed to someone and said, 'You'd f... her, wouldn't you? I'd f... her. C'mon, wouldn't you?'" The person continued: "Everyone is trying to make him stop talking, and the woman is shrinking in her seat."
"Vagina is Expensive"
An excerpt from an article published by The Huffington Post:
In a January 1997 interview with Donald Trump, shock jock Howard Stern relayed some crude marital advice that the brash businessman gave him before his second trip down the aisle, with Marla Maples. (The couple would separate a few months later.) “Donald pulled me aside at his wedding,” Stern said in comments that had not resurfaced until now. “He said, you know I am getting remarried, but Howard, vagina is expensive. I will never forget those words. The guy is right. Those were the exact words!”
Stern and Trump then laughed about the conversation. Trump did not contradict Stern's recollection of the conversation. Donald Trump was talking about his wife on the day of their wedding.
More examples of Trump's abusive war on women
Trump has vowed to rob women of their right to choose, by appointing highly conservative Supreme Court judges who will overturn Roe vs. Wade.
The same judges will rob gay women of their right to marry.
Trump bullied a little old lady, Vera Coking, by attempting to use eminent domain to steal her house for a quarter of its value; fortunately she stood up to his bullying in court and was able to keep her house.
For more than a decade, Trump tried to keep veterans from street vending on ritzy Fifth Avenue while he peddled expensive baubles to his rich patrons; of course many veterans these days are women.
Trump insisted that American soldiers must become mass murderers of women and children, by hunting down and "taking out" the families of terrorists [i.e., by murdering women and children] for purposes of "retribution."
Trump has displayed chauvinism by blaming Hillary Clinton for "enabling" her husband's infidelities, an absurdly hypocritical accusation since he brags about his own sexual "conquests" of women.
In a 2008 court filing, Hayley Strozier described an order to axe a “highly competent and professional” female employee because, her superior said, “Mr. Trump does not like fat people.”
Trump insulted women for aging: "Sometimes I do go a little bit far," he allowed, adding after a moment: "Heidi Klum. Sadly, she’s no longer a 10."
Trump went on the rag about menstruation, claiming there was blood coming out of Megyn Kelly's "whatever" after she quoted his verbal abuse of women during the first Republican presidential debate.
Back in the ‘90s Trump told New York magazine, "Women, you have to treat them like shit." He also said something very similar to Howard Stern.
Trump was accused of rape by his first wife, Ivana, after he became enraged by a botched scalp reduction procedure performed by a doctor she had recommended.
Donald Trump became―we believe―the first American presidential candidate to call another candidate a "pussy" when he mocked Ted Cruz for not being a gung-ho supporter of torture (waterboarding).
Did Donald Trump Stalk Princess Diana?
Donald Trump told Howard Stern that he thought he could have "nailed" Princess Diana. However, Selina Scott, a friend of Diana’s, claimed in the Sunday Times that Trump “bombarded Diana at Kensington Palace with massive bouquets of flowers” and that the princess had said the businessman gave her “the creeps.” She wrote: “As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment, she became increasingly concerned about what she should do. It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her.”
Donald Trump's Attacks on Rosie O'Donnell
Over the years Donald Trump has called Rosie O'Donnell a "degenerate," a "pig," a "fat pig," a "big pig," a "beast," a "slob," a "loser," "dumb," "desperate," and "fat."
"Tara Connor is a great beauty, and then you have Rosie, the Beast; you have Beauty and the Beast."
"I called her a pig, I didn’t say she was fat, because that’s politically incorrect, but come to think of it, is she fat? Assuming I did call her a fat pig, would I be wrong?"
"I called her a pig, a degenerate; I said that her wife is a lovely person."
"I feel sorry for Rosie 's new partner in love whose parents are devastated at the thought of their daughter being with @Rosie--a true loser."
“I hit that big pig face,” Trump boasted after O'Donnell stopped responding to his insults.
“This slob ― no, I’m not allowed to use the word ‘fat,’” Trump complained, citing “politically correct bullshit.”
“I think I can cure her depression,” Trump said. “If she’d stop looking in the mirror, I think she’d stop being so depressed.”
“Rosie O’Donnell, I said very tough things to her, and I think everybody would agree that she deserves it and nobody feels sorry for her.”
The Shame and Blame Game: Donald Trump's Many Offensive Remarks About Women
Donald Trump has a long history of verbally abusing women—both individually and collectively. He has made chauvinistic remarks about his wives, his daughters, his female employees, beauty contestants, actresses, singers, and his female political opponents such as Carly Fiorina, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren. What follows is an extensive collection of Trump quotations, in a series of categories.
Women are by Nature Manipulative, Sexually Aggressive Killers
"Women have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers." [And of course Mr. Wiggy Piggy is The Expert!]
"The person who came up with the expression 'the weaker sex' was either very naive or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye—or perhaps another body part."
"They are far worse than men, far more aggressive, and boy, can they be smart." [Women being smart seems to be a very bad thing to Mr. Boinker Oinker!]
"There's nothing I love more than women, but they're really a lot different than portrayed. They are far worse than men, far more aggressive."
"They want to burn their bras and complain about equal pay and being treated as men, and the second they get criticized for anything they start acting like nine-year-old little girls."
Where Does The Donald Want to See Women? On Their Knees, as Sexual Objects, Begging for Favors
According to The Donald, it is a very "pretty picture" to see women drop to their knees to beg men for favors. Trump told Brande Roderick, a contestant on The Apprentice: "It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees."
"My favorite part of Pulp Fiction is when Sam has his gun out in the diner and he tells the guy to tell his girlfriend to shut up. Tell that bitch to be cool. Say: 'Bitch be cool.' I love those lines."
"Women: You have to treat 'em like shit!"
Trump told Howard Stern that he believed there was something "sick" about women that caused them to be attracted to men who treat them poorly [like shit].
Trump posted an attack video showing Hillary Clinton barking like a dog.
"I think Gloria [Allred] would be very very impressed with [my penis]!"
"You know, it doesn't really matter what [the media] write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass."
"When a man leaves a woman, especially when it was perceived that he has left for a piece of ass—a good one!—there are 50 percent of the population who will love the woman who was left."
"Oftentimes when I was sleeping with one of the top women in the world I would say to myself, thinking about me as a boy from Queens, 'Can you believe what I am getting?'"
He spoke often of Princess Diana, saying he would have bedded her "without hesitation" because “She had the height, she had the beauty, she had the skin. She was crazy, but these are minor details.”
“Why do people think it’s egotistical of you to say you could’ve gotten with Lady Di?” Howard Stern asked. “You could’ve gotten her, right? You could’ve nailed her.” Trump agreed: “I think I could have.”
Eva Longoria? “She’s really cute, I have to tell you, she’s really bouncy, really cute,” Trump told Howard Stern in 2005. “She’s about 5-foot-1. Do you like girls that are 5-foot-1? They come up to you know where.”
“She’s got beautiful skin,” Trump added. “You have to get started, you have to like short girls. She’s very, very short. You know, she goes out with a basketball player, which is interesting but she’s very short.”
Women's Body Fluids are Disgusting
"Disgusting" (four times) was The Donald's mocking, sneering reaction to Hillary Clinton's bathroom break at a presidential debate; Bernie Sanders also took a break but that was not "disgusting" per Trump.
When lawyer Elizabeth Beck requested a break to pump breast milk, Trump had a cow: "He got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, 'You're disgusting, you're disgusting,' and he ran out of there."
Trump also went on the rag about menstruation, claiming there was blood coming out of Megyn Kelly's "whatever" when she asked him difficult questions during the first debate.
Donald Trump's Big Breast Fetish
"A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10," Trump told Howard Stern, in pidgin English
Trump told Howard Stern that he thinks “anyone is insane” who reduces the size of their breasts.
Trump said of Carmen Electra: “The boob job is terrible—they look like two light posts coming out of a body.”
Trump reportedly said of his ex-wife Marla Maples, “Nice tits, no brains.”
Trump has mentioned wanting to date his daughter Ivanka, who has obviously had a major boob job, a number of times: “[Ivanka] does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
Speaking of his daughter Ivanka again: “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father . . . ”
Asked by Howard Stern to name the "three hottest chicks you're seen," Trump named Keira Knightley, Paris Hilton, and his daughter Ivanka. He also noted that he had watched Hilton's sex video.
Howard Stern asked Trump if he would still love Melania if she were disfigured in an accident. Trump asked, "How do the breasts look?" Assured that her breasts were fine, Trump said he would "stay with her 100 percent."
During the same interview Trump said he wouldn't take care of any kids Melania had; he'd just pay for them.
Trump's big breast fetish extends even to his infant daughter Tiffany: "Well, I think that she’s got a lot of Marla, she’s a really beautiful baby, and she’s got Marla’s legs. We don’t know whether she’s got this part yet [gestures toward his chest, making large breast-like circles with his hands], but time will tell."
Women Should be Judged Differently than Men: i.e., by their Looks, Sex Appeal and Husbands
"Look at that face!" Trump told a Rolling Stone reporter as Carly Fiorina appeared on TV. "Would anyone vote for that?"
"Can you imagine that, the face of our next next president? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"
Trump later repeated the same argument about Hillary Clinton: "Does she look presidential, fellas? Give me a break."
"It's certainly not groundbreaking news that the early victories by the women on The Apprentice were, to a very large extent, dependent on their sex appeal."
To a female reporter: "I mean, we could say politically correct [sic] that the look doesn't matter, but the look obviously matters. Like you wouldn't have your job if you weren't beautiful."
Trump has used Bill Clinton's marital infidelities to attack Hillary Clinton for "not being strong" on women's issues! [Oink! Oink! Mr. Wiggy Piggy! What about your wives when you cheated on them?]
“Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get five percent of the vote,” according to The Donald.
"I believe we're all equal except women still have to try harder and they know it. They will do what they have to do to get the job done and will not necessarily be demure about it."
Tweet: "The Miss U.S.A. pageant will be amazing tonight. To be politically incorrect, the girls (women) are REALLY BEAUTIFUL. NBC at 8 PM."
“[Hillary] was favored to win — and she got schlonged.” [If a woman loses an election, it's like being inseminated by a man, according to the wisdom of The Donald.]
All Women Want The Donald
"All the women on The Apprentice flirted with me—consciously or unconsciously. That's to be expected." [It must be the hair, and the charm!]
"Their sex drive makes us look like babies." [So says the Manchild Himself!]
Trump says women throw themselves at him: “They’ll walk up, and they’ll flip their top, and they’ll flip their panties.”
Women's Looks are all that Matters! Those who are not Tens in Trump's Opinion are Disgusting and Useless!
Trump can't help insulting women for aging: "Sometimes I do go a little bit far," he allowed, adding after a moment: "Heidi Klum. Sadly, she's no longer a 10."
"Angelina Jolie has been with so many guys she makes me look like a baby ... And, I just don't even find her attractive."
"Angelina Jolie is sort of amazing [to me] because everyone thinks she's like this great beauty. And I'm not saying she's an unattractive woman, but she's not [a] beauty, by any stretch of the imagination. I really understand beauty. And I will tell you, she's not—I do own Miss Universe. I do own Miss USA. I mean I own a lot of different things. I do understand beauty, and she's not."
On Rosie O'Donnell: "You take a look at her, she's a slob. She talks like a ... like a truck driver." [And what exactly is the problem with talking like a truck driver, Mr. Boinker Oinker, when you do it yourself?]
"If I were running The View, I'd fire Rosie O'Donnell. I mean, I'd look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers, I'd say 'Rosie, you're fired.'"
"If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?" [Is that a female president's main function: to "satisfy" men, Mr. Wiggy Piggy?]
"Cher is an average talent who's out of touch with reality. Cher is somewhat of a loser. She's lonely. She's unhappy. She's very miserable."
New York Times columnist Gail Collins wrote that Trump "sent me a copy of the column with my picture circled and 'The Face of a Dog!' written over it."
"I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I'm more honest and my women are more beautiful."
Wives cannot be Trusted with any Responsibility in a Trump Business, except Supporting The Donald without Reciprocity!
Trump became very irritated when his first wife Ivana tried to talk about business (rather than about him?): "I will never again give a wife responsibility within my business."
Trump, who screams at everyone, thinks women should be "soft" and bottle up their anger: "Ivana would get angry at somebody over the telephone, all of a sudden, who was at the casino, and she'd start shouting. And I'd say, 'I don't want my wife shouting at somebody like that, I really don't want that. And a softness disappeared. There was a great softness to Ivana, and she still has that softness, but during this period of time, she became an executive not a wife.'"
"I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets?"
"Ultimately, Ivana does exactly what I tell her to do."
Trump considered it "selfish" that his second wife Marla wanted to spend more time with him: "I always viewed her whys as being very selfish."
"For a man to be successful he needs support at home, just like my father had from my mother, not someone who is always griping and bitching."
"One thing I have learned: There is high maintenance. There is low maintenance. I want no maintenance."
According to Trump, women of principle do not sign prenuptial agreements and men should not marry them; the ones who do sign are calculating gold-diggers out for a score, but marry them to save money later!
Since Trump has been married three times with three prenuptial agreements, he has called his wives gold-diggers and has advised men to only marry gold-diggers, not women of principle!
Women, However, do have One Redeeming Quality!
"Good looks had been my top—and sometimes, to be honest, my only—priority in my man-about-town days."
Despite women's general disgustingness and lack of character, an attractive woman is a "beautiful piece of ass" who may be allowed to hang around Trump for a short period of time until her looks begin to fade.
According to The Donald, women are has-beens at age 35, his female expiration date, as he informed Howard Stern: “What is it at 35, Howard? It’s called checkout time.”
Trump only values his wives for his ability to "create" them. Once the creation process is over, they are "sad" like one of his gaudy buildings:
"I love creating stars. And to a certain extent, I've done that with Ivana. To a certain extent, I've done that with Marla. And I like that," Trump told Primetime Live correspondent Nancy Collins in an interview that aired on March 10, 1994. "Unfortunately, after they're a star, the fun is over for me," he continued. "It's like a creation process, it's almost like creating a building. It's pretty sad."
“[Ivanka] does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” [Trump has said a number of times that he'd like to date his own daughter, only mentioning her looks and her body, never her character, intelligence or accomplishments. And we all know what Trump does on his dates.]
Donald Trump Plays Dear Abby, Dispensing Wonderful Advice about Women and Relationships!
"Often, I will tell friends whose wives are constantly nagging them about this or that that they're better off leaving and cutting their losses."
Trump called Anthony Weiner a "sleazebag" and a "perv," then mocked his wife Huma Abedin for being in love with him.
"Lolo Jones, our beautiful Olympic athlete, wants to remain a virgin until she gets married―she is great."
"@ariannahuff is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man―he made a good decision."
"Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert!" [Yes, listen to Dire Abby!]
"Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again―just watch. He can do much better!"
"@katyperry is no bargain, but I don't like John Mayer—he dates and tells—be careful Katy (just watch!)."
"Sarah Jessica Parker voted 'unsexiest woman alive' – I agree. She said 'it's beneath me to comment on the potential Obama charitable gift.' What's really beneath her?"
"While @BetteMidler is an extremely unattractive woman, I refuse to say that because I always insist on being politically correct."
"Now grotesque @BetteMidler is into the Trump act, trying to become relevant again."
Beautiful women are like beautiful buildings: "Beauty and elegance, whether in a woman, a building, or a work of art, is not just superficial or something pretty to see."
Out Foxed or Fox Outed?
Fox News has blasted Donald Trump for his repeated attacks on Megyn Kelly, one of the network's most prominent anchors and host of the nightly news talk show "The Kelly File." The Fox statement came after Trump sent out a tweet calling for viewers to stop watching Kelly's program. "Donald Trump's vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land," Fox News said in its statement. "Megyn is an exemplary journalist and one of the leading anchors in America―we're extremely proud of her phenomenal work and continue to fully support her throughout every day of Trump's endless barrage of crude and sexist verbal assaults. As the mother of three young children, with a successful law career and the second highest rated show in cable news, it's especially deplorable for her to be repeatedly abused just for doing her job." Trump's attacks on Kelly began when she had the temerity to quote highly offensive things he had said publicly about Rosie O'Donnell and other women.
