On Thanksgiving morning, a quote from Ivanka Trump surfaced explaining just how grossed out she really feels when her father comments on her appearance.
The president-elect has made several vomit-inducing comments about his daughter over the years, even going so far as to ask if it’s “wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?”
Not only does The Donald admit to grabbing “beautiful” women “by the p*ssy,” he apparently also wouldn’t mind doing the same to his daughter.
Journalist Sarah Kendzior tweeted a quote from Ivanka that made The Chicago Tribune‘s August 2006 article “Quotables.” In just one sentence, Ivanka perfectly sums up how she feels about her father oogling over her body:
‘If he wasn’t my father, I would spray him with Mace.’

The quote came following an interview the father-daughter duo gave to The View, when Trump claimed:
‘If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.’
The hosts of the daytime talk show laughed, but it was painfully obvious they struggled to hide their disgust. A few of the women told Trump that he’s “so weird” and to “stop it.”
Co-host Joy Behar even went so far as to say:
‘You know what, you are sick.’
Clearly, Trump has always lacked any and all self-awareness, as he went on to ask:
‘Is that terrible? How terrible? Is that terrible?’
So while we thought Ivanka merely turned a blind eye to the countless gut wrenching comments her father’s made over the years, it seems we were just unaware that she’s been fighting back. Whether her response was a joke or not is unknown, but it’s clear Ivanka seems to be at least slightly put off by her father suggesting he’d like to date her if they weren’t related.
But if Donald Trump can’t even respect his own daughter enough to refrain from publicly objectifying her, it begs the question: just exactly how far is he willing to go? Are there any lines he won’t cross?
At this point, it seems we’ll just have to wait and see.
