Like Inappropriate Comments Through the Hourglass
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, since the things that get Days mentioned in the mainstream media are usually even more bonkers than the things happening on the show, but this one’s a doozy. In a newly exposed recording from 2005, Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump makes a series of lewd comments about women to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush, who had accompanied Trump to the Days set to shoot a piece about Trump’s cameo on the soap. And the stuff he says makes Victor’s comments about Nicole/Theresa/Eve/every woman in town sound downright chivalrous!
You can click through to the Washington Post article above to read specific quotes and/or watch the video. I will say that a) it’s horrifying and b) probably will do absolutely nothing to make anyone who supports him see him any differently. But how often do we get to see a Days star on the front page of CNN’s website?!
I wonder if Arianne Zucker will come out with a statement of some kind.
Weirdly, Saturday Night Live parodied Trump’s appearance on Days back in 2005, complete with Amy Poehler playing the actress, “Arianne,” and a characterization of Trump that wouldn’t be out of place today.
