Another damaging video of Donald Trump's disturbing treatment of women has resurfaced. The tape, obtained by The Huffington Post, shows Trump coming onto a Miss Universe winner named Jennifer Hawkins in front of an audience in Sydney, Australia, in October 2011. What Trump says about Hawkins while she's standing next to him on stage is arguably more disturbing than the unwanted kiss he plants on her at the end of his speech.
At the beginning of the video, Trump admits that he swears by revenge. "Get even with people. If they screw you, screw them back 10 times as hard," he says. Trump's penchant for retribution has never been a secret; in fact, it might even be the reason he launched a campaign for the presidency in the first place.
Trump then explains how he had planned to get revenge on Hawkins (a 2004 Miss Universe winner from Australia) after he believed that she had refused to introduce him at the benefit they are attending. "Where's Jennifer? Where's she sitting? Get over here, Jennifer," he says before proceeding to make sexually suggestive comments because, "This is about getting even."
First, we hear his plan for demeaning Hawkins's intelligence, saying he "was actually going to get up and tell you that Jennifer is a beautiful girl on the outside, but she's not very bright," he says. "That wouldn't have been true, but I would have said it anyway."
He continues by making an uncomfortable joke about orgasms with Hawkins standing right next to him. "So what happens is ― and you know what? She came tonight, she came ― came, she came, she came," he says. When the crowd laughs, he adds, "See, so they have the same filthy minds in Australia."
After Hawkins explains her side of the story, saying it was a miscommunication, Trump kisses her as she tries to back away. "Can I sit down now?" Hawkins asks. "Yes, go," Trump answers.
The on-stage encounter is cringe-worthy and troubling, but it's just another incident in a long list of scandals involving the GOP candidate and women. Neither Trump nor Hawkins has responded to the video.
