On Thursday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah investigated Donald Trump’s history with women and how that has affected his favorability with women voters. The Republican nominee said at a rally in Albuquerque recently that he is “setting records with men,” but in true Trump pandering form he said “Ugh, that is so unexciting to me. I want to set records with women!”
“It sounds like Trump is getting speech ideas from a pervert’s Tinder profile,” Noah says of Trump’s willingness to say anything to get ahead. “But Trump is keeping a positive attitude about his woman problem by focusing on the very small percentage of women that do like him.” Cue the clip of Trump bringing a few female supporters onto the stage, one of whom says, “Thank you, God, for sending us Donald J. Trump to be our next president.” Trevor interjects, “I bet you God is like, ‘I’m sorry, what?'”
In order to get a better idea of Trump’s history with women, Noah dug up another clip from the “Trump Archive.” The last clip showed him talking about his newborn daughters future legs and breasts. This one from a 1994 ABC Primetime Live interview shows him talking about then-wife Marla Maples’ role in the kitchen.
When asked whether he thinks Maples should be able to work, Trump equivocates a bit, as usual, before saying, “I have days where I think it’s great. And then I have days where if I come home and, ya know, I don’t want to sound too much like a chauvinist, but when I come home and dinner’s not ready, I go through the roof.”
“You don’t want to sound too much like a chauvinist? Well, you didn’t try very hard not to,” says Trevor.
