Donald Trump apparently only kind of regrets saying all those sexist things on The Howard Stern Show

Donald Trump is trying to backpedal on being associated with the licentious, playboy lifestyle he once boasted about. Understandably — the guy is running for president of the United States.

In a recent interview with The Washington Post, Trump "acknowledged he would not have said certain things had he known that he would eventually be running for office." Those "certain things" presumably include his quotes on The Howard Stern Show, including (but hardly limited to):

  • "A person who is very flat-chested is very hard to be a 10"
  • "Nice tits, no brains" — in regards to ex-wife Marla Maples
  • "Would you go out with Marcia Cross or would you turn gay, Howard?"
  • That he needs "anti-Viagra, something with the opposite effect"
  • That he would have a "hard time [getting it up]" for Madonna

You get the picture.

Trump, though, defended his past by telling The Washington Post that, "I never anticipated running for office or being a politician, so I could have fun with Howard on the radio and everyone would love it. People do love it." Trump added he is "much less" obsessed with women's looks "than people would think."

"I greatly respect women," Trump said. Well then, it's settled.
