Trump jokes about dating his daughter Ivanka because of her “nice figure”

Joe Simpson once praised his daughter Jessica’s breasts, making him the inaugural–and lone–member of the Creepy Reality TV Dad Club.

He’ll be joined by Donald Trump, who, on The View yesterday, praised 24-year-old daughter Ivanka’s hot body. Asked about the possibility of Ivanka posing for Playboy, Trump said, “I don’t think Ivanka would do that, although she does have a very nice figure.” Then he upped the creepy quotient by about 100, saying, “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

Trump’s spokesperson Jim Dowd had to tell the AP that Trump “was absolutely joking.” He added, “He was making fun of himself for his tendency to date younger women. It’s a sense of humor that people don’t see (from him) all the time.”

Just what we need to humanize Donald Trump: More incest jokes.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
