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.

    It’s a whole sick NBC Daytime coup. Billy Bush recently went to work for Today. I wouldn’t unpack my things yet Billy!

    I feel terrible for Arianne. The few media outlets who have even mentioned her name keep butchering it (Ariana? Ariannie? Zooker?). It’s gross the way Bush and Trump demean her and then 30 seconds later are all smiles to her face. I mean I know the same thing happens 1,000,000 times a day in the real world but it’s terrible to see it up close. I’m sure someone is after her for a story as we speak. Not sure it would be in her best interests to say anything public the way the Trumper’s have rallied to his side (again.). Sigh…

      Yeah, this does NOT reflect well on Billy Bush at all. Yikes.

      It’s so weird that AZ, of all people, is somehow in the thick of this. But wouldn’t it be glorious if Days were the thing to bring down Trump?

    My head has been exploding since yesterday. Seeing Ari’s picture at Wonkette was truly surreal.

    The whole video is sick, but somehow it’s Billy Bush encouraging Ari to hug Trump, after his comments, that made my blood boil the most.

    The press was camped out in front of Ari’s house yesterday, I guess. But luckily she and Shawn seem to be out of town. I agree lying low is probably her best option given how people get attacked by Trump trolls, but if she wants to jump into the fray I’ll be behind her 100%.

    On a lighter note, if this truly is instrumental in bringing Trump down, how crazy would it be that it was Days that did it! What a scoop for Nicole Walker, investigative reporter. 🙂

    • mykleraus Says:

      Oh wow. That’s intense. I really hope she has something to say, though I absolutely wouldn’t blame her for just keeping quiet so she doesn’t attract any more craziness.

      And I was just making that point about Days bringing down Trump, hahahaha. Truly its most relevant in decades!

    oh, she had something to say all right by now i am sure you know……i wonder who wrote that for her? i felt just awful for her in that situation because i really think she was just cringing inside and felt like she HAD to “play along” with these assholes…..i can’t describe it precisely but she was so MANipulated……very creepy and sad.

    • mykleraus Says:

      It’s such a non-statement, but I guess it’s her right not to get more involved than she needs to. Of course she had to mention the “great man” in her life, because GOD FORBID SOMETHING WASN’T ABOUT DANIEL!

    When I first saw the video I was like “OMG, that’s our Nicole!” How surreal! I TOT agree … it was disgusting the way they talked about her and then jumped out of the bus and acted like charming/flattering/distinguished men believing they could sweep her off her feet! You could totally tell she was disgusted to hug trump … like she barely touched him, and she gave the little guy a genuine hug.

    Also that little guy, talked so big and bad on the bus, then he was like a little lost boy when they were walking with her … so typical.

    Arianne strikes me as being very smart and having the energy of a strong queen, and I believe she could have wrapped those 2 around a telephone pole if she knew at the time what went on in the bus. So I don’t see her as a victim … I just see those 2 disgraceful twerps as her victims if she decides to make them so.

    • mykleraus Says:

      It’s really just creepy and unsettling. And of course, 11 years ago, Donald Trump was just kind of this ridiculous media figure/blowhard who was basically comic relief.

      I appreciate that she took the high road in her statement, because Trump hung himself anyway, but part of me wishes she’d come out swinging.
