As if you needed any more reason to despise Donald Trump than the simple fact that you’re watching him dismantle American democracy before the nation’s eyes, we here at Political State are here to remind you that he’s not just a terrible politician — he’s an absolute horror show as a human being as well.
Yes, there’s plenty to refer you to: The Access Hollywood tape, the not-so-subtle racism, the complete absence of any desire to learn and/or grow in any way whatsoever. There was even one time when he tried to force an old lady out of the home in Atlantic City that her husband had built her 30 years prior, just so he could pave himself a parking lot for the limousines in use at his nearby casino.
But the one thing you never expect to find out about someone, no matter how awful they seem, is that they don’t actually love their family — specifically their kids.
Now Donnie loves Ivanka, that much is creepily, incessantly clear. And he loves Don Jr. because he can’t help but love anything with his own name on it. We’re fairly certain he loves Eric, or he wouldn’t entrust half of the Trump Organization to his oversight along with his brother. We’ve even seen young Barron, who almost counts as another namesake since he’s named after Trump’s alter-ego from the 80s and 90s, accompanying the old man on vacation once or twice.
So let’s see, who are we missing? I bet even Donald couldn’t tell you.
But those pesky tapes of the Howard Stern show that Newsweek got their hands on have a name on them, and they do NOT paint a pretty picture of what Donald thinks of his youngest daughter, Tiffany.
During a conversation in which they discussed his former wife Marla Maples’ pregnancy with Tiffany, Trump told the host that he’d asked his then-spouse, “What are we going to do about it?” She, of course, reacted in a pretty negative way to his non-subtle suggestion that she get an abortion, and the result was Tiffany Trump.
Stern was asking Trump if he “trusted” his current wife Melania to regularly take birth control, Trump indicated that he did — and then Stern reminded him that he’d “fallen for” that before:
I did. That happened. She said, ‘I think I’m so happy! We’re about to have a child.’ I said, ‘Excuse me?’ I didn’t know about this.”
I guess we can stop wondering why we never see them together.
