That Time Trump Reminded a Grieving Mother That He Tried to “Pick Her Up”

There's a lot to unpack here.

Kelly Preston and John Travolta lost their son Jett in 2009 and GOP nominee Donald Trump offered his condolences in a way that only he would.

Trump wrote a blog post for Trump University (???) in which he shared the story of that time he tried to woo Kelly Preston.

"A long time ago, before I was married, I met Kelly Preston at a club and worked like hell to try and pick her up," he wrote on the Trump University website. "She was beautiful, personable, and definitely had allure. At the time I had no idea she was married to John Travolta."

He continued, "In any event, my track record on this subject has always been outstanding, but Kelly wouldn't give me the time of day. She was very nice, very elegant, but I didn't have a chance with her, and that was that."

The most obvious question is why the fuck would you offer your condolences to a grieving mother by talking about that time you tried to sleep with her?

My next question is why the fuck did he post this on the Trump University website?

Trump wrote that he tried to pick her up a "long time ago" before he was married, but Trump has been married several times beginning in 1977, so that doesn't exactly narrow it down. We can assume he meant before he married Melania, but not necessarily before the others.
