On March 6, 2006, to promote The Apprentice, Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka appeared on ABC talk show The View. Cohost Star Jones kicked off the interview by asking what Mr. Trump would do if Playboy put Ivanka on the cover of its magazine.
“This is going to be an interesting answer,” Ivanka, in a moment of foresight, predicted.
She did not know the half of it. Trump’s answer would become something of a legend and has been discussed ad nauseam this summer in the wake of Trump’s presidential candidacy. The incident was widely reported on in 2006; for whatever reason, the clip never made it online to Something Awful, or eBaum’s World, or another early video hosting site.
Well, we tracked down the footage and would like to share it with the world.
