The timing of Donald Trump’s affair with Stormy Daniels has attracted a lot of attention because it was only a few months after Melania had given birth to his last child, Barron, the first part of 2006. Trump, who never changed a diaper for any of his children, made no bones about the fact that he had nothing but contempt for the fact that women gained weight during pregnancy and he was particularly condemnatory about women who retained weight after delivery. He spoke with his friend Howard Stern about it on the radio. Washington Post:
Trump also…said…that he had seen “beautiful women that for the rest of their lives have become [a] horror” after giving birth.
“You know, they gain like 250 pounds,” he told Stern. “It’s like a disaster.”
Even after having four children with two different wives, Trump was apparently oblivious or uncaring about the biological reality of pregnancy, demanding the impossible from Melania.
Seven months before an alleged tryst with porn star Stormy Daniels, Donald Trump told radio host Howard Stern that he would give his pregnant wife, Melania, a couple of days — or maybe a week — to regain her model figure after giving birth.
“You know, Howard, she’s got the kind of a body and makeup where, about one day after the baby, it’s going to be the same as it was before,” Trump said during an appearance on Stern’s show on Dec. 7, 2005.
“You’re giving her one day?” Stern asked.
“One or two,” Trump replied.
Moments later, the future president reconsidered. “I think I’ll give her a week,” he said. “No, I’ll give her a week.”
Wow. Big of you. Then he fat shamed his wife in front of New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser, who initially endorsed Trump for president, then withdrew her support in August, 2016 and shared this anecdote:
When I visited about two months after his lovely wife, Melania, now 46, gave birth to the couple’s son, Barron, now 10, the infamous germaphobe boasted that after fathering five children, he’d never changed a diaper.
I enthused that Melania, who stood quietly nearby aboard 5-inch stilettos, had lost all her baby weight. Trump corrected me: “She’s almost lost all the baby weight.”
I was embarrassed for the mother of his youngest kid, who ignored the dig.
What a guy.
