Last year, Ann Friedman called on women everywhere to overthrow “the last acceptable dating prejudice” and give short men a chance.
When the same team took a survey of 181 college students, 29 percent of women said they would feel “awkward” or “weird” dating a shorter guy, and both men and women in this sample were even more exacting about height: More than half of the women—55 percent—said they only wanted to date men who were taller, and 37 percent of men said they would only go out with women who were shorter.
In the clip, Trump asks one of the girls if she’s “going up the escalator.” When the girl replies, “yeah,” Trump turns to the camera and says: “I am going to be dating her in 10 years. ”It is not the first time Trump has made reference to his interest in dating much younger women.
In 2006, he made a about his own daughter, Ivanka Trump: “I’ve said that if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her,” Trump said.
In Sunday’s debate with Hillary Clinton, Trump insisted it was all “just words” and that he had never groped a woman.
But at least three women have now come forward to contest that dismissal, telling news organizations he groped them in personal encounters at his home, at Trump Tower in New York, and on a commercial flight.
