Vintage Trump: My Wife Shouldn’t Work Because I’ll ‘Go Through the Roof’ If Dinner Isn’t Ready

The Daily Show‘s been doing a lot of digging into Donald Trump‘s past recently, and last night, they came across an old clip where he painted the very picture of a joke about how women should stay in the kitchen where they belong.

Trevor Noah made the point last night that whether Trump wants to acknowledge it or not, his approval numbers among women remain low. “I want to set records with women,” Noah said, mockingly quoting the presumptive nominee. “Sounds like Trump’s getting speech ideas from a pervert’s Tinder profile.”

After roasting Trump a bit more for his complaints about Hillary Clinton’s “shouting,” Noah played a clip from a 1994 interview where he gave a rather peculiar reason for his mixed feelings about letting his ex-wife Marla Maples have a job.

“I have days where I think it’s great,” Trump told Nancy Collins. “And then I have days where if I come home and, you know, I don’t want to sound too much like a chauvinist, but when I come home and dinner’s not ready, I’ll go through the roof.”

“You don’t want to sound too like a chauvinist,” Noah asked. “Well, you didn’t try very hard not to.”
