Donald Trump Jr. Also Has Issues Understanding Sexual Harassment

As allegations of unwanted sexual advances continue to mount against Donald Trump, a new recording released by Buzzfeed shows the same sense of entitlement also extends to the Republican candidate’s son, Donald Trump Jr.

In a March 2013 episode of the Opie and Anthony Show, Trump Jr. argued against women attending all-male golf clubs, insisting, “If you have a guys’ place you have a guys’ place.”

Don Jr. said the reason why men “hate having” women around is because they complain about things like harassment. “They stop us from doing what we want to do,” he added.

“I’m of that mindset—and I’ll get into trouble, I’m sure I’ll get myself in trouble one of these days,” Trump saiid. “If you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. Like, you should go maybe teach kindergarten.”

“I think it’s a respectable position,” he added.

“You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know,” Trump continued. “But listen, there’s a place where you have to draw the line, but today the stuff you get in trouble for—”

Trump didn’t explain what women should be able to handle during billion-dollar business deals, nor did he explain where to draw the line on sexual harassment. The host then joked that he was pulling up nude images of women, asking, “Wouldn’t it be funny if we showed tits and then Donald sued?” 

“I’d feel harassed!” Trump Jr. replied, mocking women who report sexual harassment. “This is my get-rich-quick scheme. I’m now suing you guys because I feel uncomfortable.’

“And by the way, that’s what happens in the world,” Trump said. “I can play along, I can be fine, and then I can decide randomly, ’Uh oh, you now have crossed the line, even though I’ve been going with it.’”
