We know that Donald Trump does not command a tremendous amount of respect for women. We know this thanks to countless examples he’s provided over the years, and we know this thanks to his own words, from blatantly sexist remarks to statements such as him literally stating that he “can’t say” he treats women with respect. So it’s not exactly a revelation that yet another one of Trump’s disgusting remarks about women has turned up; just consider it one more to throw on the pile.
In a recently unearthed Howard Stern interview from back in January of 1997, the shock jock recalled some words of advice Trump gave to him at his 1993 wedding to his second wife, Marla Maples.
As Donald taught me one very important lesson, he took me aside at his wedding, and he said to me, now you know I’m getting remarried, and he said to me, Howard, vagina is expensive. That is what he said to me, and I’ll never forget those words. And the guy was right! Those were the exact words, ladies and gentlemen!
Not only did Trump fail to deny what he said — and why would he? — but instead laughed gamely along, muttering something along the lines of, “that’s pretty close,” in response. Not surprisingly, Trump and Maples separated just a few months later, in May of 1997.
Of course, this latest remark isn’t likely to make a difference to Trump supporters who have already heard him say dozens upon dozens of heinous things about women; women who could be their daughters, sisters or mothers. You can listen to audio of the interview below:
