Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump said many awful things about her wife Melania in 2005.
In a 2005 interview with Howard Stern, Trump called his then-pregnant wife Melania “a blimp” and “a monster,” and it happened two months after he made his now-controversial and campaign-damaging “grab them by the p****y” remark, as reported by Huffington Post. Donald married Melania early that year.
“Like a blimp — in the right places. In her case, the right places. I mean she really has become a monster — in all the right places,” Trump said of his wife in 2005.
“You know, they just blow up, right?” Donald added.

Donald also insulted a pregnant Heidi Klum a couple of months before she gave birth to Henry.
“I looked at her the other day, and it’s off. There’s no question,” he said.
During the Republican debate in Ohio, Megyn Kelly made mention of his misogynistic and sexist remarks against women in the past, saying that he referred to women as “slobs” and “fat pigs.”
Trump went back at her with a riposte.
“Only Rosie O’Donnell.”
In an interview with CNN, Donald made another insulting remark against Kelly.
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump said. “Blood coming out of her wherever.”
It came to a point that Donald Trump’s offensive remarks against women are taken as a matter of course, and it appeared as if they did little to damage his campaign. But it looks like the other shoe may have finally dropped when his supposedly-private conversation with Access Hollywood host Billy Bush, which happened in 2005, was leaked online. The conversation happened inside a bus as Mr. Trump arrived on the set of a Days of Our Lives taping.
The Washington Post published the video on Friday, featuring the GOP nominee saying that “when you’re a star, you can do anything to women,” including grabbing them “by the p***y.”
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait,” Trump added.

Donald also recounted to Bush about that one time when he made sexual advances on a married woman.
“I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it,” Trump said.
“I did try and f*** her. She was married.”
“And I moved on her very heavily … I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture — I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture,'” he said.
“I moved on her like a b***h but I couldn’t get there. And she was married.”
And then he made insulting remarks about the woman’s physical appearance.
“Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look,” he said.
Trump issued an apology (a non-apology if context is taken into account) on the same day the video was leaked, and he went at Bill Clinton while he’s at it.
“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”
Melania Trump responded to the offensive recording, saying that her husband’s remarks were “offensive” and “unacceptable.
“This does not represent the man that I know,” Mrs. Trump said. “He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”

The video leak continues to wreak havoc on Trump’s campaign, as 33 Republican senators, including John McCain, withdrew their support for him. A handful of them urged Donald to drop out of the campaign.
