Trevor Noah devoted a segment of Tuesday night’s Daily Show to what he called Donald Trump’s “gross perspectives of women.”
During that part of the show, the host aired a clip from a 1994 episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, a video which Noah said was previously not online.
In the video, Trump and his second wife Marla Maples are being interviewed by the show’s host, Robin Leach, and they’re asked about their one-year-old daughter, Tiffany.
“Donald, what does Tiffany have of yours and what does Tiffany have of Marla’s?” said Leach.
“I think that she’s got a lot of Marla, she’s a really beautiful baby. She’s got Marla’s legs. We don’t know whether or not she’s got this part yet,” Trump said cupping his hands under his chest, “But time will tell.”
Noah sat silent after the clip aired, making faces of disbelief. “I’ve watched that Trump clip maybe 20 times now but every time I do I just need to take a quick breather and remember that good things still exist in the world,” he said.
The host continued, “He could have said anything, and he went with legs and possibly boobs?” Noah said that perhaps Trump isn’t intentionally being offensive it’s just his own version of word association. Mocking Trump’s voice he said “Your wife, boobs. Your infant daughter, boobs.”
In conclusion, Noah said, “Normally a candidate who views women this way would be doomed but Trump is not a normal candidate.” His advice? “The next time you’re going to hand Donald Trump your baby, maybe reconsider.”
