Ahh, more gross news in Trumpland!
According to BBC TV anchor Selina Scott, a friend of the late People’s Princess, Donald Trump pursued Princess Diana to be his “trophy wife,” after she got a divorce from Prince Charles. Why this news is coming out right now- I’m not sure. Maybe it’s to sully Trumps name enough post Republican debates, maybe it’s just a thing Selina needed to get off her chest about her pal Di.
Naturally, Diana was NOT interested. US Weekly reports:
Scott, 64, has been a longtime critic of the real estate mogul, who is currently eyeing the Republican nomination in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. She also claims that Trump allegedly gave the late Princess Diana “the creeps” as he tried to win her affections following her 1996 divorce from Prince Charles.
“Trump clearly saw Diana as the ultimate trophy wife,” Scott wrote in the Aug. 16 edition of The Sunday Times. “As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment she became increasingly concerned about what she should do. It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her.”
The veteran TV personality, whose long-running feud with Trump, 69, has been well-documented in the British press over the last two decades — claimed that Princess Diana even asked Scott over dinner what she should do about Trump’s advances.
“‘What am I going to do?’ she asked. ‘He gives me the creeps,'” Scott recalled of their alleged meal. “‘Just throw them in the bin,’ I advised. Diana laughed.”
This stuff is verfied by Trump his 1997 book, The Art of the Comeback:
“I only have one regret in the women department â€“ that I never had the opportunity to court Lady Diana Spencer. I met her on a number of occasions,” he wrote. “I couldnâ€™t help but notice how she moved people. She lit up the room with her charm, her presence. She was a genuine princess — a dream lady.”
What could have been…and thankfully didn’t.
