Donald Trump has made offensive remarks about nearly every demographic group, but Trevor Noah said the Republican presidential candidate has saved his most “dickish” remarks for women.
The “Daily Show” host showed a rare, two-decade-old TV clip that shows Trump talking about his then-infant daughter developing breasts, which Noah said proved there’s no woman too small for the GOP candidate to objectify.
“Trump’s misogyny easily predates the election,” Noah said. “In fact, it’s pretty much his only consistent belief.”
A recent super PAC ad featured women reading some of his rude comments about various women, whom he calls “fat pigs” or “bimbos” and imagines them performing sex acts.
The ad refers to a quote in which Trump says that women should be treated like “shit,” which he denied having said in an old interview with Howard Stern — but Trump laughs that he can’t say that women should be treated with respect.
“Wow, Trump’s an a**hole, but he’s honest,” Noah said. “Yeah, he’s honestly an a**hole.”
Trump doesn’t believe his long history of sexism should disqualify him as a presidential candidate, because he said he knows other politicians say far worse things “behind closed doors.”
“Yes, and that’s what closed doors are for, Donald Trump,” Noah said. “You don’t say these things in public. In a way, this is almost worse, what you’re doing. You’re like a guy masturbating on the subway, looking at everyone else, going, ‘Oh, get over it — you all do this at home.'”
Noah said his producers found a nearly “endless” supply of video clips of Trump making offensive comments about women, but he showed one clip, from a 1994 episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” that he said demonstrated just how “completely innate” his sexist attitude was.
Host Robin Leach asks Trump and his second wife, Marla Maples, which characteristics their 1-year-old daughter, Tiffany, had inherited from each of them — and Noah paused to ask his audience to consider how each of them might answer a question like that.
“Well, I think that she’s got a lot of Marla,” Trump says. “She’s a really beautiful baby, and she’s got, uh, Marla’s legs.”
“We don’t know whether she’s got this part yet,” he continued, cupping his chest. “But time will tell.”
Noah sat for a long moment in stunned silence as the audience laughed awkwardly, as the image remained onscreen of Trump mimicking breasts with his hands while talking about his infant daughter’s physical characteristics.
“I’ve watched that Trump clip maybe 20 times now, but every time I do, I just need to take a quick breather to remember that good things still exist in the world,” Noah said.
“Back in 1994, Trump was asked what attributes his 1-year-old daughter shared with his wife,” Noah continued. “He could have said anything, but he went with legs and possibly boobs?”
