British Documentary on Donald Trump is Just Beastly

leave a comment »

British news anchor, or newsreader as they’re called in Britain, Selina Scott, spent two weeks with Donald Trump in 1995 while producing a 60-minute program for ITV on the Donald.

What began as an interview for a television program ended as, what she termed, a revealing and excruciating experience.  Apparently the Donald wasn’t happy with the ITV program, which didn’t always paint him in the best light.  Scott also pressed him on questions where she knew he wasn’t being truthful. She also showed his inconsistencies on numerous statements in the piece.  He immediately went on the attack and over the years since the program aired has continued to send Selina Scott nasty and intimidating letters branding her “sleazy, unattractive, obnoxious, and boring.”

The Donald also attempted to woo her during the visit expressing what she called “creep advances.”

What Ms. Scott ultimately took away from this experience was that Donald Trump has a pattern in his treatment of women and it isn’t a nice one.

I managed to get a copy of the program only to find it removed from YouTube days later as you can see by the link at the top of this article.  Sadly, many of the formerly free and easy to view videos about Donald Trump are now vanishing from YouTube and other video sites, since he began his run for President of the United States.

Another documentary out of Britain shows Trump’s consistent and insistent hounding of the people in a small Scottish village where he wants to build a golf course and luxury resort.  The people of the village are fighting him. Trump is fighting back and it isn’t pretty.  How long this video will remain available for public viewing remains to be seen.
