One of the laws of physics got broken last night. We are told it is an immutable law of nature, at least where Donald Trump is concerned, that “when you’re a star they let you do it.”
That might have been true of some women, some of the time, back when Donald Trump was the big stud (in his own mind, at least) in Hollywood doing The Apprentice.
But as you will see from this clip, there’s a real ewww factor going on here, as this young woman pulls away.
Trump calls swimmer Riley Gaines up on stage and tries to give her a kiss. She flinches and pulls away. pic.twitter.com/zKSZMAEF2Y

Isn’t that embarrassing for His Studship? I’ll bet she’ll never work in Trump town again, after that public snub. The woman in question is Riley Gaines. She competed as a swimmer on behalf of the University of Kentucky against Lia Thomas (a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman.) She subsequently spoke out against Thomas and she doesn’t appeared to be too thrilled with Trump, either.
Now are you ready for this?
None other than the Washington Examiner is reporting Trump wouldn’t take no for an answer!
Video of the incident shows Gaines appearing to pull her head away from Trump’s before leaning back in slightly. Trump then appeared to say something to the young athlete, but it does not appear in the video as if they made contact.
Gaines then went on in her speech to say she is fighting to “keep female sports female.”
As she finished her remarks, she thanked the former president and he appeared to try a second time to give her a kiss on the cheek.
Trump was probably floored that this woman had the audacity to not play along in a public display of affection with him. Why else try twice? I would bet that after this a memo went out, “calling all females. If King Donald tries to kiss you on stage, you will go along with it. Or else.”
There’s no fool like an old fool.
