Donald Trump’s borderline pedophiliac tendencies have been noted before.
From his comments on his own then-teenaged daughter Ivanka to his parading though the dressing room filled with semi-naked Miss Teen USA contestants to his recently revealed comments about the then 15-year-old daughter of his former attorney and Trump Organization fixer Michael Cohen, Trump’s behavior has put his friendship with the late Jeffrey Epstein in an even more chilling light.
Samantha Cohen, now 24, reacted to the creepy anecdote related by her father in his recent confessional book Disloyal: A Memoir during a recent interview with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota.
Camerota read an excerpt from a recent Vanity Fair article about the book where her father described Trump whistling at Samantha’s 15-year-old self and called her a “piece of ass.”
The now-adult Ms. Cohen remembers the incident, but more for how Trump used his comments on her body to humiliate her father than for the leering lechery that his boss exhibited.
“What stood out to me in that moment was he said to my dad, ‘Well, there’s no way that she got her looks from you, thank God you married a beautiful woman,’” Ms. Cohen told the CNN host. “And I was desensitized to men making creepy comments about me, but I was not desensitized to someone blatantly insulting and degrading my father in front of me.”
Samantha Cohen doesn’t think that Donald Trump was actually trying to put the moves on her, but she did get the distinct impression that “he was interested in younger women and that, you know, women would age out for him and that when one woman became too old, he’d find a new younger one.”
It’s a word of warning that Melania has hopefully addressed in her pre-nuptial agreement with her husband, given that the scenario that Samantha Cohen describes has been the story of Trump’s first two marriages.
