Brook, crowned Miss Universe 1997, recalled to the New York Times a strange encounter with Trump that happened during the Miss Teen USA pageant that same year. Ivanka, 16, was up onstage helping host the event. Trump watched proudly from the audience, and turned to Brook to ask her opinion on Ivanka’s body! Omg!
“‘Don’t you think my daughter’s hot? She’s hot, right?’” Trump said, according to Brook. ‘I was like, ‘Really?’ That’s just weird. She was 16. That’s creepy.” Creepy is an understatement! The NYT piece includes so many other anecdotes from women who have worked for and with Trump, and have their own horror stories to share. A miss USA contestant, Temple Taggart, said that Trump kissed her on the mouth the first time they met! Jill Harth was working on a pageant with Trump in the early 1990s, when she says that he announced he was going to sleep with her, and groped her during a business dinner!
This isn’t the first disturbing allegations we’ve heard about Trump commenting on his daughters’ appearances. In a 1994 clip from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Trump made some very uncomfortable comments about then one-year-old daughter Tiffany Trump. When asked how Tiffany looked like her parents, Trump said she had Marla’s legs, and gestured to his chest — “We don’t know whether or not she’s got this part yet.” Oh my god. That’s sickening! In an appearance on The View, Trump once said that if she weren’t his daughter, he would totally date Ivanka. None of this is okay!
