Salma Hayek Spills The Beans On Time POTUS Asked Her Out On A Date

It’s no secret that President Donald Trump was something of ladies' man throughout his younger days, but that behavior seems to be a thing of the past. Nonetheless, some signs pop up from time to time that remind us that he wasn’t always the most gentlemanly person in the world.

His presidential campaign was nearly derailed by the infamous ‘Access Hollywood’ tapes, in which he was picked up on a hot mic engaging in some racy talk with host Billy Bush.

While Trump wrote that off as ‘locker room’ talk, it remains an incident that’s too hard for some folks to look past. Some observers view it as a clear lens into his overall moral makeup, and his eyebrow-raising remarks weren’t exactly presidential or family friendly.

The furor over those remarks occasionally rears its head, and it’ll be interesting to see if they come back into the spotlight on the back of this latest tidbit.

As Yahoo shares, actress Salma Hayek was a guest on ‘The Daily Show’ with host Trevor Noah, and the host decided to ask an incredibly uncomfortable question.

"How does Donald Trump ask someone out on a date," he asked.

That sparked some groans from the audience and some squirms from Hayek, so it looks like it was mission accomplished for Noah on that front.

"I was at an event with my boyfriend," Hayek replied.

That, of course, sparked even more groans, but there was a bit more to the story. Trump became acquainted with Hayek and her boyfriend during the party, and he would reach out to her directly a short time later.

"Am I crazy? What about my boyfriend," she recalled.

"He's not good enough for you," Trump reportedly replied. "He's not important, he's not big enough for you. You have to go out with me."

Sounds like an uncomfortable and awkward situation to be in, but Hayek’s revelation raises a ton of questions. For starters, why bring this up now?

While you can make the case that she was blindsided by the question, talk show appearances are typically coordinated beforehand so the interviewee knows what to expect. It’s a little hard to see Noah being that bold without receiving a green light beforehand, as such behavior could quickly place him on the avoid list as far as celebrities are concerned.

While it’s certainly an interesting tidbit, it appears to have been designed to be shared to portray Trump in a negative light. If that’s the case, that’s an incredibly bad look for Hayek and Noah, as there’s more than enough negativity out there about the commander-in-chief these days.

That doesn’t need to be worked into every single conversation from here to eternity.

As for Trump’s approach to Hayek, assuming it was as she explained it, his tact leaves a lot to be desired. They say that all’s fair in love, war and politics, but there’s also plenty to be said for having standards that will not be compromised.
