Donald Trump once again said something dumb years ago and we’re all acting like it’s a big deal because we were dumb to make him the Republican nominee in the upcoming election.
In a 2006 interview with Howard Stern, Trump admitted that he liked to walk backstage prior to the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants while the women were changing.
Well, I’ll tell you the funniest is that before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, 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. You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good. You know, the dresses. “Is everyone okay?” You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. “Is everybody okay?” And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.
This isn’t even the worst thing Trump has said this week when it comes to using his celebrity status and entitlement around women. It’s just the worst thing he’s said this hour.
At least he tries to explain his actions by saying, “I want to make sure that everything is good.” It’s the same as a McDonald’s owner walking into the kitchen to make sure the fries are being fried correctly and the burgers aren’t too thick. Only if every McDonald’s employee was an attractive and naked female.
Thank God he didn’t have any Tic Tacs in his pocket.
If we keep digging up Donald Trump interviews from 10+ years ago, we’ll continue to lose sight of the real issues, whatever those are.
