Recently-Unearthed Transcript Proves Donald Trump Has Never, Ever Respected Women

Transcript of an interview from 1994:

Let’s talk about women. Your feelings toward them seem conflicted, even chauvinistic, confusing since you adore and respect your mother so much.

I have great relationships with women, my mother, Ivana, Marla, my female executives are better than the men: tougher, smarter

So why in 1992 did you tell a writer for New York magazine, Marie Brenner, that ‘You have to treat women like shit” – ultimately pouring a bottle of wine down her back?

I didn’t say that. The woman’s a liar, extremely unattractive, lots of problems because of her looks.

It’s alarming to see how quickly he transitions from “respect” to the complete opposite. “That statement is exactly why women think you’re a chauvinist pig,” Collins says, referring to Trump’s defensive posturing and his continued obsession with conflating a woman’s looks with her honesty. His response is telling:

They’re right – and not. People say, “how can you say such a thing?” but there’s a truth in it, in a modified form. Psychologists will tell you that some women want to be treated with respect, others differently. I tell friends who treat their wives magnificently, get treated like crap in return, “Be rougher and you’ll see a different relationship.’ Unfortunately, with people in general, you get more with vinegar than honey. I don’t want to sound like a chauvinist, but when I come home at night and dinner’s not ready I go through the roof. But I got handed casino numbers. After 12 hours dealing with my companies, I didn’t want to talk business. I can instantaneously shut it off, my survival mechanism. But she’d be yelling into the phone with the casino; I didn’t want my wife shouting like that. Ivana had a great softness that disappeared. She became an executive not a wife.

He also goes on to say that "Putting your wife to work is a very dangerous thing — the single biggest reason my marriage stopped being good, my fault more than hers. I thought, “Ivana’s a great homemaker, mother but I’ll give her something really exciting to do” — like raising kids wasn’t the most important job in the world...I don’t want to sound like a chauvinist, but when I come home at night and dinner’s not ready I go through the roof...After 12 hours dealing with my companies, I didn’t want to talk business. I can instantaneously shut it off, my survival mechanism. But she’d be yelling into the phone with the casino; I didn’t want my wife shouting like that. Ivana had a great softness that disappeared. She became an executive not a wife.

7. Stuff like this about Trump has been known for years. How can any woman support him as POTUS?

Especially with the avalanche of this type of stuff that has been out on him in recent weeks. Is it too much for the conservative brain to process? Are they so fascinated with Trump's perceived wealth and power that they overlook that he's misogynistic to the point of being sickly dangerous?
