Another day, another story about the man who is currently President of the United States being a mega creep. The latest cringe-worthy tale from Trump's past comes courtesy of Brooke Shields, who shared a story about being hit on by him on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday.

Are you sitting down? Because Trump's pickup line was so unimpressive, it might just knock you off your feet.

"I was on location doing a movie and he called me right after he had gotten a divorce," Shields explained. "He said, 'I really think we should date because you're America's sweetheart and I'm America's richest man and the people would love it.'"

Ah, nothing says "love" like pointing out a mutually-beneficial PR move. See? Romance isn't dead (insert one million eye-roll emojis here).

Trump's advances on Shields came just after his 1999 divorce from Marla Maples, according to New York Daily News, which would have made her about 34 at the time.

When Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen pointed out that Trump had also appeared with Shields on Suddenly Susan, she stuck her tongue out in disgust and said, "I can't even speak," which is the appropriate response.
