Mr. T. and His Women
“Speaking of America, Donald’s on the phone,” interrupts Dorothy,Ivana’s longtime assistant and her kids’ former nanny. Ivana excuses herself.
Their marriage (1977 - 1992) was survived by three children: Donald John Jr., Ivanka Marie, and Eric Fredrick. His second wife, Marla, lasted six years (1993 - 1999), and brought their daughter Tiffany into the family. Other than giving birth to his youngest son, Barron, however, it is unclear, what his current wife, Melania Trump - 24 years younger than Donald - brings to the table. After a chunk of her speech at the RNC was revealed to be plagiarized wholesale from Michelle Obama's speech to the DNC eight years earlier, we're not sure if her command of the English language is as proficient as we were led to believe. Also, despite what her professional website and the 2016 RNC program read, Melania Trump did not in fact complete a degree in architecture and design at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia. In July 2016, CBS News checked the official public records of the university, and discovered that Melania Trump is not listed as having graduated from there with a degree.
Some people, a few people, are saying that Melania's nothing more than an extension of Donald's ego. Certainly, we would never say such a thing. But someone tweeted it, so...

Taking Advantage of "Undocumented" Models
When you have people working for you that don't have a legal standing to be in the country, it's a whole lot easier to be wishy-washy with their wages, and now a Manhattan judge is reviewing a Jamaican model's wage lawsuit against the GOP presidential candidate's very own modeling agency. Alexia Palmer alleged in an October 2014 lawsuit that Trump Model Management only paid her $3,880.75 for all the modeling shoots she did from 2011 to 2013. There were more than 20 in that time.
The model's case from this video was dismissed for insufficient evidence of any promise to pay her for work done; however, she currently has a case before The Department of Labor and report after report shows the mogul's New York modeling agency, Trump Model Management, has indeed profited from using foreign models who came to the United States on tourist visas that did not permit them to work here.
Trump Pockets The Cash
According to a financial disclosure filed by his campaign in May, Donald Trump earned nearly $2 million from the company, in which he holds an 85% stake. Meanwhile, several former Trump models say they barely made any money working for the agency because of the high fees for rent and other expenses that they were charged by the company.
Canadian-born Rachel Blais spent nearly three years working for Trump Model Management. After first signing with the agency in March 2004, she said, she performed a series of modeling gigs for Trump's company in the U.S. without a work visa. At Mother Jones' request, Blais provided a detailed financial statement from Trump Model Management and a letter from an immigration lawyer who, in the fall of 2004, eventually secured a visa that would permit her to work legally in the United States. These records show a six-month gap between when she began working in the United States and when she was granted a work visa. During that time, Blais appeared on Trump's hit reality TV show, The Apprentice, modeling outfits designed by his business protégés. As Blais walked the runway, Donald Trump looked on from the front row. She did the work. He made the money. And with iffy immigration status, it's awfully hard to complain.
Sexual Harassment Charges Against Trump Companies
According to the Shirazi Law Firm
On August 16, 2016, this law firm wrote an article about Erin Breen, a female employee at Trump National Golf Course in Jupiter, Florida who alleges that she was terminated after she complained about being sexually harassed by Joe DiPasquantonio, the former food and beverage manager at the same golf course. Breen alleges that Pasquantonio did the following to her:
- Asked her to perform oral sex.
- Made consistent sexual advances towards her.
- Called her pet names such as his “number one,” and his “rock.” The rock pet name allegedly refers to Breen’s rock hard body.
- Dropped something on the floor and asked her to pick it up.
- Made sexual jokes and commentary.
- Made sexual comments on social media such as “everything you do is cute”, “it’s hard now”, and “you should come up to our suite.”
- Told her he would leave his wife for her.
On December 30, 2013, Breen alleges she made a formal complaint to her direct supervisor, Laura Daniel. Instead of investigating the alleged harassment, Daniel acted uninterested. Breen alleges that her employer retaliated by firing her shortly after the complaint. Trump National Golf Course though, says the official reason for Breen’s termination was due to time-card theft and gambling while on the clock.
After recently suggesting during an interview that if his daughter were sexually harassed at the workplace, he would hope she would just change careers, the subject of sexual harassment has been brought to the forefront. And isn't the office of the President the ultimate business manager? So again, these sexual harassment charges are relevant when judging the past judgments and policies of a potential POTUS.
Trump's penchant for fondling models aside, several stories have resurfaced from reputable sources claiming Donald's advances were not always appreciated, even by his first wife, Ivana. While The Donald’s reputation as a womanizer is well documented, the public doesn’t often talk about these accusations. But according to legal documents, Trump has been accused of raping a 13-year-old child, raping his ex-wife, and attempting to rape a former business associate. He vehemently denies all of these accusations—and it should be noted anyone can file a civil complaint in court, and a complaint is by no means proof of allegations. We don't want to paraphrase, or misquote, so below you'll find the links to the stories for you to decide for yourself. In the case of the last two, those are links to the actual court documents directly. These are brutal stories, we know. The most recent being the last one which is currently playing out on the national stage in New York Federal Court.

RAPE STORY #1
RAPE STORY #2
RAPE STORY #3
This one we don't even want to comment on. We're absolutely not going to discuss the recruiting parties thrown by the Trump Modeling agency where the industry standard for young women to start their careers is about as soon as they hit double digits. Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia made her modelling debut for Young Versace at 10, and even protected Kardashian clan member cum tv reality star Kendall Jenner started when she was 14. We don't want to repeat that Jane Doe in this case was 13 years old at the time of these incidents.
We are not going to parse the fact that the statute of limitations on a minor yelling, "rape!" before 2006 was only 5 years. We certainly don't feel like talking about the crazy work of the feminazis who got that statute of limitations removed. We don't want to tell you that the Jane Doe in this filing wrote that she, "remained silent on the matter for so many years because she was afraid of the threats against her family being carried out," or that she "remains traumatized by the incident due to the media coverage of Trump." We don't want to have to explain this is now an open civil case and can no longer be prosecuted as criminal. So we're not gonna talk about it. It's hot out, and we're going to enjoy the rest of this summer day. You're on your own. Just click the link if you want to see the actual legal documents filed in court, and currently under review.
To be clear, we're not saying Donald J. Trump is a serial rapist. We wouldn't say that. But other people have reported that he's a rapist. Maybe it's just because he's famous and they want something from him, like cash. That could be it. Or maybe not.
