Here we go again…

Donald Trump ranked, disparaged women during appearances on “Howard Stern”

By WITW Staff on February 25, 2016

Another day, another Trump saga. BuzzFeed News has poured through hours of conversations between Donald Trump and radio host Howard Stern — which took place on air from the late ’90s through the 2000s — and isolated more than 20 instances of crude comments made by Trump about women. In one exchange, the Republican presidential hopeful rated the cast of Desperate Housewives on a 10-point scale, saying of actress Nicolette Sheridan: “A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10.” He also mocked Pamela Anderson’s hepatitis C diagnosis, claiming that he would rather sleep with Whoopi Goldberg or Rosie O’Donnell.

Trump seems to have had a particular interest in Princess Diana; months after she was killed in a car crash, Trump told Stern that he believed he could have slept with her. In a later interview, he said he would have slept with her “without hesitation” and that “she had the height, she had the beauty, she had the skin.”

Even Trump’s wife, Melania, was thrown into the fray. During a 2004 conversation, Trump told Stern that he “trusts [Melania] in every way,” and so does not pull out during sex. The next year, however, he said that he would be interested in having more children. “I like kids,” he explained. “I mean, I won’t do anything to take care of them. I’ll supply funds and she’ll take care of the kids.”

For the most part, Stern and his co-hosts instigated the most distasteful threads of these conversations. But as BuzzFeed News writes, “Trump was almost always willing to go along.”
