Ah yes, the Salma Hayek-Donald Trump dating saga. This is a good one. Late last fall, Hayek claimed that Trump once asked her out, and after she rejected him, she said he planted an unflattering and false story about her in the National Enquirer. Classy! This was in the midst of another scandal, when a woman accused Trump of raping her in 1994 when she was 13 years old. "He calls us rapists," Hayek said during a press call for Hillary Clinton in October, referring to Mexicans, "but who has a lawsuit [against him] for raping a young girl?" The lawsuit was dropped November 4, Trump was elected president four days later, and now all we have is Hayek reliving her and Trump's initial meeting on The Daily Show. It does not disappoint:
In summary, Trump's method seemed to be get in good with the boyfriend, brag about his own success and wealth, and then box the boyfriend out. "He's not good enough for you. He's not important. He's not big enough for you," Trump said, according to Hayek. "You have to go out with me." It didn't work, obviously. But the blind, bullheaded confidence of that man is still astounding.
