Donald Trump Said He’s Less Proud of Daughter Tiffany Than His Other Kids

I guess Donald Trump wanted to make sure that he said something extra mean and unnecessary on election day, just to make sure we wouldn’t forget how much of a jerk he is. Well, Mashable reports that he succeeded.

When calling into Fox & Friends Tuesday, Trump said, “I’m very proud of my children. I mean, I’m just looking at them right now as an example… but I’m very proud ’cause Don and Eric and Ivanka and, you know, to a lesser extent ’cause she just got out of school, out of college, but, uh, Tiffany, who’s also been so terrific. I mean, they work so hard.”

He tried to hedge there, saying Tiffany has “also been so terrific,” but the damage had already been done. He really said on television that he’s prouder of some of his children than others.

Tiffany is Trump’s daughter from his second marriage to Marla Maples. She just graduated from University of Pennsylvania in 2016, and is lesser-known than Trump’s other children. Apparently she’s also less impressive—at least in her dad’s eyes.

Sorry, Tiffany. But you know how he is.
