In a draft of Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen’s piece, “Our Next President, The Godfather,” Cohen wrote that President-Elect Donald Trump once asked, “Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?” However, the quote was removed before the column was published Tuesday, reported BuzzFeed News.
Trump was allegedly referred to his daughter, Ivanka, who was 13 years old at the time.
The draft circulated around on Monday, before a final version was released Tuesday. In the first copy, the quote appeared after an introduction of Jared Kusher, Trump’s son in law:
“Jared Kushner, our Tom Hagen, who married Trump’s stunning daughter Ivanka — “Can I ask you something?” Trump asked someone I know, about his then-13-year-old kid, “Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?” — has lately lost some of this Boy Scout aura. It turns out Kushner’s admission to Harvard was preceded by his father’s $2.5 million pledge.”
The quote did not appear in the final piece carried by the Post and other outlets, a source confirmed with BuzzFeed News.
Although the quote was removed, there’s no surprise that Donald Trump spoke about his daughter Ivanka in a sexual way.
The Daily Show host Trevor Noah chronicled the many times Donald Trump used Ivanka and sex in the same sentence.
Eight former crew members said that Trump commented on camerawoman, who he said had a nice rear, comparing her beauty to that of his daughter, Ivanka, reported the Associated Press.
“He would just mention it all the time. I remember him comparing Ivanka to her and saying that only Ivanka was prettier,” said camera assistant Rebecca Arndt.
