Donald Trump has said some pretty inappropriate things about his oldest daughter, Ivanka, but this photo takes the cake.
This throwback image of dad and daughter from a 1996 Vanity Fair article is all over the internet, and it has us looking away almost immediately.
Ivanka's outfit is straight out of Contempo Casuals (flammable pale blue skirt a la Kelly Taylor circa '96), and the way she's posing with the presidential hopeful is...not something a daughter would or should normally do.
I don't know what the photographer was thinking, or if it was Donald's idea, but NO.
Making things worse, Trump's comments about his daughter's beauty in the past have been complimentary, but not the kind of complimentary "She's the best! I'm so proud!" you'd expect to hear from a parent.
It's more like this:
"Yeah, she's really something, and what a beauty, that one," Trump told Rolling Stone in a September 2015 interview. "If I weren't happily married and, ya know, her father . . . "
In 2006, When asked if he would approve of Ivanka posing for Playboy, Trump kept the creep training going:
"I would be really disappointing — not really — but it would depend on what’s inside the magazine," Trump said.
"I don’t think Ivanka would do that, although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
Nope. Nope. Shut it down.
