It’s Saturday night and I watched a movie on my DVR (A Bridge Too Far – about an infamous WWII battle that was still going on this time in 1944) and needed something to lighten my mood. Browsing my for news probably wasn’t the best idea and I was going to check and see if there was anything good on Comedy Central when a story caught my eye.
If you follow Trump you know all about his ego, and this in his mind he’s a real life modern day Don Jaun instead of mere Donald John and one woman we know he’s been obsessed with over the years is female actor Salma Hayek. Look she is in fact as striking lovely as she is talented and smart. And as this article from SheKnows indicates Hayek got more than a bit of unwanted attention from Trump. He started hitting on her in front of her boyfriend at the time and kept calling her despite her telling him she had a boyfriend and wasn’t interested. Trump of course told her stuff like:
“‘He’s not good enough for you. He’s not important, he’s not big enough for you. You have to go out with me.’”
Of course Trump would think so, and act in such a boorish manner. However the article notes he was slow to take no thanks (as in leave me the hell alone you old pervert!) for an answer. It was amusing to read, and then I remembered another article from earlier in the week about another lady you know. Time magazine published an article which includes a clip of the lady in question, which also mentions Trump’s “awkward” attempts to “date” Hayek and Candace Bergen too! But the Time article focused on what happened after Trump was done with Trophy Wife #2 aka Marla Maples and wanted felt as America’s most eligible bachelor HE needed a beautiful “American Sweetheart” on his arm. (And of course in his bed.) So he tried to convince Shields:
“I was on location doing a movie and he called me right after he gotten a divorce,” Shields said. “And he said, ‘I really think we should date because you’re America’s sweetheart and I’m America’s richest man and the people would love it.’”
Shields politely brushed him off:
Unfortunately for Trump, Shields wasn’t terribly impressed by his line and let Trump know that she was unavailable, telling him that “I have a boyfriend, he’s not really going to be happy about it.”
You have to wonder how many other famous and beautiful women, even women not just in relationships but married Trump has tried this crap with. I seem to recall he thought HE was the guy for Princess Dianna even!
Look, I’m no prize. I was an awkward, skinny as a rail and shy kid but in college filled out and was a basketball player and in my mid twenties became a Marine. I was no head turning “hunk” but at least could get dates and had relationships including a marriage to a smart and yes, beautiful woman. It didn’t last (six years) but the point is that once upon a time I was decent looking and reasonably well built. And sometimes would ask out someone who was frankly out of my league. Most of the time I got rejected and accepted it with good grace. But hey, I’m of a generation where guys almost always had to do the asking and sometimes someone terrific and beautiful did say yes.
I wasn’t however arrogant enough to talk up how great a “catch” I was, and pressure someone who said no. It doesn’t take much awareness to recognize a polite brush off but for someone like Trump, who believes every woman desires him above all other men the most visible, beautiful women should in his warped mind be falling all over themselves to have wanted him. But here we are late on a Saturday night and as we all know “Melanie” is nowhere to be found. Trump’s not going to touch her, much less boink her tonight unless their prenup demands this be one of the times she’s required to in order to collect her payout.
I’m sitting here alone on a Saturday night because I’m old (not as old as Trump but I’m a senior citizen), broken down physically and fat. And having been forced into early retirement broke. I couldn’t afford to take a woman on a date even if one wanted to go out with me. Hell, I wouldn’t date, much less f**k me anymore. Much less some of these women who are pretty much mocking Trump publicly for having pursued them. Hayek, Shields, Bergen and who knows who else are proof positive that being beautiful doesn’t mean being stupid! THEY had Trump’s number right off the bat.
However we’re close to the witching hour and I’ll bet Trump is every bit alone as I am. The difference is I understand and accept why I’m alone. Trump doesn’t, so he’s in a funk about it. And if he hasn’t he’ll learn that once again his desire for Salma Hayek (and others) went unrequited. That will cause him no small amount of pain to his ego. So that will be some pleasure I can take on this Sat. night.
