Barbara Res worked for Trump for 18 years as senior vice-president of the Trump Organization. In a recent interview with Olivia Nuzzi of the Daily Beast, she described Donald Trump’s rampant sexism, calling him “a supreme sexist” and a “megalomaniac.”
Here’s Res in her own words:
“I had never heard him say ‘pussy’ before. I heard him say ‘fuck’ a million times. The way he said it—I just grab it—I was shocked at that, and then you know, when I took the time to put it into context, I said, ‘yeah, that’s right.’
He’s terribly sexist. He’s a womanizer for sure…He hired me for a specific reason: Because I was really good. And he told me, and he believed this, that women had to work harder and be smarter and were willing to work harder than men, and that’s what he wanted, and he had a couple of women working for him… ‘Men are better than women,’ he said, ‘but a good woman is better than 10 men.’ I think he thought I would take it as a compliment, and I think it was intended as a compliment.
He once said that, when his business was failing in the early ’90s, he blamed it on the fact that his executives did a bad job while he was off, in his words, ‘fucking women two and three at a time’—he said that!”
Res added “Now, I don’t think he respects anybody. I don’t think there’s a person alive that he respects, because he thinks he’s God.”
There you have it, from someone (a woman) who worked closely with Trump for nearly two decades: Trump is a massive sexist who thinks he’s God.
