According to a former top administration official who had regular access to failed one-term, twice-impeached ex-president Donald Trump, sexual comments about female staffers and even the ex-president’s daughter, Ivanka, were common in the Trump administration, which led to a hostile work environment that made many inside the White House uncomfortable.
Miles Taylor, who served as chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security, has written a book entitled Blowback: A Warning to Save Democracy from the Next Trump, and in he reveals that the former president was constantly making inappropriate comments, according to Newsweek.
These incidents included, the book says, claims by aides that Trump made lewd comments about his daughter Ivanka’s appearance and talked about “what it might be like to have sex with her.” This prompted a rebuke from his chief of staff, the book says.
Taylor said he immediately noticed Trump’s disgusting behavior and comments when he was briefing the then-president.
He recalls witnessing such behavior first-hand in meetings with Trump and Kirstjen Nielsen, who was secretary of homeland security from 2017 to 2019.
“When we were with him, Kirstjen did her best to ignore the president’s inappropriate behavior,” Taylor writes in his book. “He called her ‘sweetie’ and ‘honey,’ and critiqued her makeup and outfits.”
After a crass comment from Trump, he recalls Nielsen whispering to him: “Trust me, this is not a healthy workplace for women.” Nielsen has been contacted for comment.
But the worst of Trump’s remarks were about Ivanka, Taylor writes.
The bottom line for voters, Taylor notes, is that they need to know the sort of man they might put in White House a second time, which would be a disaster.
Trump has said inappropriate things about Ivanka in the past.
During a joint appearance with her on “The View” in 2006, he commented, “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her. Isn’t that terrible? How terrible? Is that terrible?”
And in 2015, Trump told Rolling Stone, “She’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father…”
Donald Trump belongs behind prison bars for whatever is left of his life. Not just for the crimes that have led to indictments, but also for being a disgusting sexist and misogynist who thinks it’s cool to lust after his own daughter.
