Donald Trump’s history of objectifying and promoting violence against women is well-known and ongoing, but one of the more peculiar aspects of that history has been his habitual inappropriateness toward now-First Daughter Ivanka Trump.
In a creepy treasure trove of interviews unearthed by Newsweek, some of those comments have now been brought to vivid and soul-crushing life. This 2004 clip is particularly stomach-churning, especially given the context.
After telling Howard Stern that he’s known Paris Hilton “since she was 12-years-old” and that Melania Trump showed him Hilton’s infamous sex tape, Trump waxes enthusiastic about his own daughter’s body:
“Paris Hilton. Paris Hilton, and I’ve known Paris Hilton from the time she’s 12. Her parents are friends of mine, and, you know, the first time I saw her, she walked into the room, and I said, ‘Who the hell is that?’ […] Ivanka, my daughter, Ivanka. She’s 6 feet tall. She’s got the best body.”
Many of the comments in the new archive have been reported on previously but were not available with audio or video.
Trump raised eyebrows in 2006 when he commented on “The View” that if Ivanka were not his daughter, “perhaps I’d be dating her.”
Watch that clip below, if you dare.
