This New York Times investigation uncovered troubling anecdotes about Trump's private interactions with women

For months, BuzzFeed News has been all over Donald Trump's history of disturbing public comments about women. Now, The New York Times gives us a glimpse into his private interactions with the opposite sex, via dozens of women who have worked with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

On Saturday, the newspaper published an investigation revealing women who describe Trump as having made unwanted advances and inappropriate and demeaning comments to them in private settings.

Carrie Prejean, Miss California 2009, told in her memoir of Trump lining up the Miss USA contestants and evaluating them personally at a rehearsal:

It became clear that the point of the whole exercise was for him to divide the room between girls he personally found attractive and those he did not. Many of the girls found the exercise humiliating. Some of the girls were sobbing backstage after he left, devastated to have failed even before the competition really began to impress "The Donald."

In an interview, Trump denied this anecdote and many of the others reported, including that he asked an ex-girlfriend to rate his ex-wives' attractiveness. For more troubling details, including comments about women's weights and pet names for high-up female executives, head over to the Times.
