Trump's comments make light of statutory rape

The Daily Show

THE Daily Show host Trevor Noah has gone to town on Donald Trump's sexism by digging up a 2004 clip of the presidential candidate on the radio show, Imus in the Morning.

The pair discussed the arrest of a 23-year-old female teacher, Debra Lafave, on charges of having sex with a 14-year-old male student.

In true Trump fashion, the chat turned into a not-so-charming discussion featuring victim blaming and inane chatter about the woman's physical attributes.

"How would you like to be the husband of the wife that was playing around with a 14-year-old kid? Unbelievable. By the way, did you see what she looked like?"

The pair agreed she was "not bad", and Trump added: "I know a lot of guys who are trying to date her right now, Don."

Imus told his guest: "I don't know what your teachers looked like when you were in school, but..." and Trump responded: "None of them looked like that, believe me."

Trump went on to blame Lafave's victim for the sexual assault, saying "So do you think this 14-year-old kid is scarred forever? He might have put the move on her. It might have given him confidence, actually," Trump said.

Branding Trump the "Master of Sexism," Noah wasn't done with Trump yet.

Another clip was aired which showed Trump with his arm around a young woman, as he told the audience at The Learning Annex in San Francisco about "a beautiful girl who was 17 or 18", who applied to be a waitress at one of his properties.

"So beautiful. She's like a world-class beauty," he said.

"My people came, they said, 'Mr Trump, she has no experience.' So I interviewed her anyway because she was so pretty.

"And I said, 'Let me ask you, do you have any experience?' She goes, 'No sir.' I said, 'When can you start?'"

Trump was yet to publicly respond to The Daily Show segment.

Noah came to a fair conclusion: "Let's be honest here, folks: There's only one pig in this whole story, and it's the one that got slaughtered at the debate on Monday."
