Trump The Pervert

Maybe you’ve seen the 1992 video clip in which Donald Trump chats with a group of little girls at Trump Tower. When they leave to ride the escalator up, he says, “I’m going to be dating her in ten years. Can you believe it?”

My daughter turns 10 today. If a grown man said anything like that about her in my presence, I would slug him. He would have revealed himself as a lecherous pervert. Trump saw that child only as a potential sexual conquest. That’s not the same as a pedophile, but it does reveal the depths of his narcissism and his inability to see women — even little girls — as anything but potential sex partners. He allowed Howard Stern to refer to his own (adult) daughter Ivanka as “a piece of ass.” Any normal father would have belted Stern. Not Trump. Because he’s a pervert.
