Before he was a famous reality television star, Donald Trump was known for having money and cheating on his wives. Oh, and the hair.
Now, in the weeks after the watershed Harvey Weinstein sexual assault accusations, it was only a matter of time before someone found a clip of Donald Trump doing something similarly repulsive. In this newly uncovered video from 2007, Trump invites a woman up on stage with him at the Learning Annex and then jokes about offering her a job.
See it for yourself, below.
Donald Trump, President of the United States, has a long history of being inappropriate with women.
At least 16 women have accused Donald Trump of sexual assault – and more information keeps coming out https://t.co/JOCoKQDlvE— NowThis (@NowThis)1508306580.0
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations, Republicans are demanding Democrats who accepted campaign money and donations from Weinstein return the money.Of course, this strikes many as bizarre, considering Trump was featured in multiple recordings bragging about his own sexual assaults ranging from barging into dressing rooms during beauty pageants he owned, to simply grabbing women and getting away with it.
It seems like the common thread here isn't politics.It's more about powerful men with bad ideas being allowed to do whatever they want. Especially if that man is your boss. It's frightening to accuse the person who controls your livelihood and salary.
In this very low place, it's difficult for anyone to find the high road.But that doesn't mean that we can't still call out inappropriate behavior when we see it.
People are still trying to drive home the point that Donald Trump is a confessed sexual predator. This video, posted by Now This, shows him engaging in disgusting behavior that surprises no one.

In reality, being a flight attendant is a pretty serious job.

So clearly he isn't hiring this woman for her stellar safety record.

This is something he's literally famous for.
@nowthisnews Well, I am shocked. Who could’ve foreseen this? https://t.co/VlNGduna2o— Dli O'Doir (@Dli O'Doir)1508158021.0
It's definitely the kind of thing only Trump seems able to get away with.Because obviously anything this man does, by virtue of his having done it, is fine in the eyes of his die-hard, unquestioning supporters. Of course, his predecessor did also make some waves by wearing a tan suit once.
Don't get us wrong, Donald gets some guff for his suit choices too.
@nowthisnews @mgobluegirl6 Doe he only own one suit? With that kind of money I'd have at least 2. And some casual shit for weekends.— Coldhands (@Coldhands)1508111832.0
