Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is embroiled in a number of accusations and scandals involving his treatment of women after a 2005 tape surfaced where he alleges he can grab women by the p*ssy because he's a celebrity. It seems, however, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. In a 2013 interview, Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., implied that women
According to a finding from BuzzFeed, Jr. did an interview with The Opie and Anthony Show, previously on SiriusXM. While discussing whether women should be allowed to join an exclusive all-male golf club, Jr. advocated for exclusivity.
“If you have a guys’ place you have a guys’ place,” Jr. said, going on to describe himself as a “guy’s guy.”
One of the hosts claimed that when places like that exist, women “complain, ‘it’s harassment’ — that’s why we hate having them around. They stop us from doing what we want to do.”
“I’m of that mindset — and I’ll get into trouble, I’m sure I’ll get myself in trouble one of these days,” Jr. began, “if you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. Like, you should go maybe teach kindergarten. I think it’s a respectable position."
That wasn't all. He continued, “You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know,” not expanding on what "you know" meant. “But listen — there’s a place where you have to draw the line — but today the stuff you get in trouble for.”
The hosts then joked that they were pulling up naked photos of women in the studio, commenting, “Wouldn’t it be funny if we showed tits and then Donald sued?”
“I’d feel harassed!” Jr. mocked. “This is my get rich quick scheme. I’m now suing you guys because I feel uncomfortable.” He continued saying, “And by the way, that’s what happens in the world. I can play along, I can be fine, and then I can decide randomly — ‘uh oh, you now have crossed the line, even though I’ve been going with it.’”
