Marla Maples’ Alleged New Boyfriend Called Trump a ‘Racist,’ ‘Pathetic, Sniveling, Little Man’
Apparently Marla Maples has a penchant for men named Donald as she is rumored to be dating Donny Deutsch, a vocal opponent of Maples’ ex-husband Donald Trump, Page Six reports. The pair were looking cozy at NYC’s Polo Bar in January 2017, which one source said was likely to be their first or second date.
While Maples and her daughter Tiffany remain quiet about Trump’s presidency, Deutsch is quite outspoken about his distain for the 45th President. Trump and Deutsch were friends once upon a time, but relations soured to the point where Deutsch often uses colorful language when referring to the resident at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Hint: No. 5, 6, and 7 say everything.
1. Once upon a time Marla Maples married Donald Trump
Trump and Maples married in December 1993, but divorced in 1999, according to Newsweek. Maples was Trump’s second wife, with the pair beginning their affair while Trump was married to first wife, Ivana. Trump and Maples share one daughter, Tiffany who is publicly supportive of her father.
The couple’s relationship became strained after Maples revealed their marriage was built on an illusion and that she thought she, “could change him. But he won’t change.”
Next: Then comes the second Don.
2. And then Marla met Donny #2
Following the divorce, Maples concentrated on her career and the study of Kabbalah, while single-handedly raising Tiffany, according to People. And despite keeping opinions about Trump quiet, she is now allegedly aligned with one of his biggest critics: Donny Deutsch.
Next: The Deutsch/Trump friendship was in full bloom.
3. Trump and Deutsch used to be friends
Like Trump, Deutsch is big on using nicknames, referring to Trump as a “king maker” at one time, Variety notes. Deutsch planned to invite Trump to appear on his short-lived USA show, Donny!, telling Variety he and Trump were friends, their kids attended the same schools, and he even had Trump’s phone number. Deutsch also made appearances on a few seasons of The Apprentice and Trump was a guest on Deutsch’s CNBC show The Big Idea.
Next: That was then, this is now.
4. But the friendship tanked once Trump ran for President
The bromance is history as Deutsch is now one of Trump’s most well-known adversaries. In March 2016, Deutsch pleaded with Trump on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to, “stop with the punch and the riots” because “somebody’s gonna get killed at some point.” He added, “I just say, ‘Donald, as my friend—dude, this is where it stops.’ This is where you gotta say, ‘Hey, I’m this, I’m this, I’m this, but at the end of the day, I’m a father, I’m a grandfather, I love this country’ . . . A strong man says, ‘No, and I have the power to stop that from happening’; you don’t need it at this point.”
Next: The friendship completely flatlined after the Charlottesville incident.
5. And then the gloves came off
Deutsch’s contempt was on in full force following the President’s reaction and statements about the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. “We have a racist as a president who is a man who cannot stand up and condemn the Ku Klux Klan and Nazism is a racist,” Deutsch said on Morning Joe in 2017. He added to his rant by calling Trump a “pathetic, sniveling, little man.”
Next: From “pathetic and sniveling” to “evil.”
6. Trump’s jabs at immigration got Deutsch fired up
Again on Morning Joe, Deutsch shot back at Trump after the President’s bombshell comments about not allowing immigration from “shithole countries.” Deutsch’s response was, “Our president is not only racist, is not only stupid, is not only imbalanced, he is evil.”
Next: #MemoGate prompted this explosive response.
7. Deutsch calls Trump a dictator
Following the infamous Republican-backed FBI memo, Deutsch asserted that Trump was a “dictator” who is “clearly owned by Putin,” during an MSNBC appearance. The memo contained accusations that the FBI and the Justice Department improperly spied on a Trump campaign advisor, alleged to be a Russian agent, according to The New York Times.
