So do you remember when you were in high school and you asked someone out and they said no so you made up some elaborate excuse as to why you actually hadn’t asked them out? Like you were just being nice or something? No? Well, just me then. The difference is that I was 14 years old when I did that and Donald Trump was 62!
After Enquirer ran a story about Selma Hayek’s weird encounter with Trump back in 2008, she came forward to verify the story on a radio show. She said that Trump asked her out repeatedly and even offered to take her on a $120k luxury trip with him. Hayek finally had to be very blunt with him to get him to leave her alone. She told him that even if she didn’t have a boyfriend she wasn’t interested in dating him. She says that their conversation took a sharp turn here and he called her “disrespectful.”
Suddenly, after her remarks, a story showed up in the Enquirer claiming that Trump had turned her down for a date because she was “too short.” Super newsworthy right? Then after having a tantrum in a nationally distributed periodical he tried to play nice and started calling her again. And this is the part that Selma Hayek says that she can barely believe herself: Trump offered to date her out of charity. He claimed he had no idea where the story had come from and that he was willing to still date her to show the world that she wasn’t too short to be with Donald Trump.
Hayek reiterated some of the awful things that Trump has said about Mexicans and admonished listeners not to vote for him. She also claims that the $120k trip she was invited to had come from money that was donated to his foundation and intended for charity.
