The production staff at The Dr. Oz Show edited out one of Republican presidential nominee’s remarks from Wednesday’s taping, the creepy moment when Trump talked about kissing his daughter Ivanka “every chance I get.”

Trump replied, “I kiss her every chance I get.”
The remarks were cut from the broadcast which aired Thursday.
Trump has said some awkward things regarding Ivanka’s attractiveness in the past, telling a panel on The View that “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
He told Rolling Stone magazine, “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father . . . ”
