Donald Trump Thinks Men Who Change Diapers Are Acting ‘Like the Wife’
Donald Trump Thinks Men Who Change Diapers Are Acting ‘Like the Wife’ (BuzzFeed)
“Do you actually change diapers?” host Anthony Cumia asked Donald Trump on the Opie and Anthony show in November of 2005.
The then 59-year-old businessman, whose wife Melania was pregnant with his fifth child and her first, responded bluntly: “No, I don’t do that.”
“There’s a lot of women out there that demand that the husband act like the wife and you know there’s a lot of husbands that listen to that,” Trump added. “So you know, they go for it.”
“If I had different type of wife,” Trump said laughing, “I probably wouldn’t have a baby, ya know, cause that’s not my thing. I’m really like a great father but certain things you do and certain things you don’t. It’s just not for me.”
The interview — one of many reviewed by BuzzFeed News — reveals a man with an extremely traditional view on the responsibilities a man and a woman have when raising a family. That view has already come under attack by an anti-Trump group, with one of his comments in a 2005 Howard Stern interview appearing in ad from the super PAC Our Principles.
