Trump in 1995: ‘Is It Wrong to Be More Attracted to Your Own Daughter Than Your Wife?’
The world’s worst-kept secret may be that Donald Trump has repeatedly made gross sexual comments and observations about his daughter, Ivanka Trump.
And I’m not talking about pride for his daughter’s personal attributes or accomplishments, like most parents. This is some next-level stuff.
After his p*ssy-grabbing comments as recorded on the infamous Access Hollywood tape from 2005 became public, it’s not exactly surprising to hear of Trump’s history of alleged misconduct with women. ABC published a list in June that placed the current number of sexual misconduct accusers against Trump at 17, though the White House’s official stance is that all of these women are lying and Ivanka has repeatedly said that she believes her father over his female accusers.
So let’s take a look at some of the cringe-worthy things Trump has said about his first-born daughter, Ivanka.
1. Trump allegedly once asked a columnist if it was wrong to be more sexually attracted to your daughter than your wife.
According to Buzzfeed News, Columnist Richard Cohen claimed in a draft for a Washington Post op-ed published in November 2016 that Donald Trump once allegedly asked him, “Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?”
The line was reportedly edited out and never published, but was allegedly in reference to Ivanka, who was 13 at the time. In a statement sent to BuzzFeed News, The Washington Post’s editorial page editor Fred Hiatt said,
“We (or the Washington Post Writers Group, our affiliated syndicate) edit every column to try to make it as good as it can be … We don’t think it would be fair to our writers to discuss the editing process, and don’t see what is to be gained by talking about things that are not published — there are countless drafts that never see the light of day.”
2. Trump joked on Wendy Williams’ talk show about how he and his daughter both liked sex.
In 2013, Donald Trump and Ivanka were guests on the Wendy Williams Show. They were asked what their favorite thing they had in common was.
Ivanka replied: Either real estate or golf.
Which is kind of understandable, for the daughter of Donald Trump.
Trump then replied: Well, I was going to say sex, but I can’t relate that to her.
The crowd laughed, but we’re not really sure what the joke is.
It’s time I did a thread on Donald Trump’s perverse obsession with his daughter Ivanka.

3. Trump allegedly compared two alleged mistresses to Ivanka
In a March 2018 CNN interview with Anderson Cooper, former Playboy model Karen McDougal discussed an affair she allegedly had with Trump over a decade ago. McDougal alleged that Trump said McDougal was “beautiful like her,” referring to Ivanka.

In an interview with In Touch, which was conducted in 2011 but was not published until 2018, Stormy Daniels recalled that Trump allegedly compared her to his daughter. “He told me once that I was someone to be reckoned with, beautiful and smart just like his daughter.”
4. Trump said he likes it when Ivanka calls him “daddy.”
At a rally in North Dakota in September 2017, Trump brought Ivanka on stage and announced that he likes it when his daughter, a senior White House adviser, calls him “daddy.”
“Come on up, honey,” the president said of his 36-year-old daughter before adding that it was her idea to join him at the rally.
“She said, ‘Dad, can I go with you?'” Trump said. “She actually said, ‘Daddy, can I go with you?’ I like that. ‘Daddy, can I go with you?’ I said, ‘Yes, you can.'”

5. Trump said, “If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father … “
Trump made yet another suggestive comment to Rolling Stone reporter Paul Solotaroff in a September 2015 story about Ivanka’s beauty.
“Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father…,” Trump said.
Ya know? I wish Solotaroff said, “No, I don’t know. Why don’t you elaborate?”
6. Trump said “he kisses Ivanka every chance he gets”
During a taping for The Dr. Oz Show in September 2016, Trump took his fatherly affection to new heights. According to a source from the audience, Ivanka walked onto the set and kissed both her father and Dr. Oz in greeting. When Dr. Oz said it was “nice to see a dad kiss his daughter,” Trump responded that he kisses Ivanka “every chance he gets.”
I just have one word…GROSS!
