Even Princess Diana Thought Donald Trump Was a Creep

To no one's surprise, his dating tactic is "stalker."

Donald "Scared of Natural Human Processes (opens in new tab)" Trump has this weird complex where he seems to hate women (opens in new tab), but at the same time, he also wants the ones he considers young and beautiful to like him. (Makes sense.)

Late-'90s Donald Trump had already embarked on this mission when he saw an opportunity to win himself "the ultimate trophy wife": Princess Diana, who had just divorced Prince Charles.

"He bombarded Diana at Kensington Palace with massive bouquets of flowers, each worth hundreds of pounds," BBC presenter Selina Scott wrote in the Sunday Times (opens in new tab). "As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment she became increasingly concerned about what she should do. It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her."

At one point, Scott says the princess even asked her, "What am I going to do? He gives me the creeps." (This is the part where Trump would interject "She didn't like my orchids because she was shedding her uterine lining!")

A representative for Trump has since told the Times "they had a great relationship, liked each other a lot, but nothing ever came of it." Which is a pity because in his memoir, he wrote that "his one regret in the women department [was] that I never had the opportunity to court Lady Diana Spencer."

More like 1,723,645,845 regrets (opens in new tab), but that may be giving too much credit to his conscience.
