Americans collectively gasped when Donald Trump referred to his daughter Ivanka as “a piece of a**,” and Ivanka Trump isn’t always thrilled with her dad either. In fact, Donald Trump told Howard Stern he thinks his eldest daughter looks down on him, which could be true given the number of eyebrow-raising comments he’s made before and after assuming the presidency.

As a previous constant on The Howard Stern Show, Donald Trump made several assertions that might provide clues as to why Ivanka Trump could be disappointed with her father. Reasons range from comments that would produce an eye roll from just about any kid to cringeworthy, sexist remarks and actions. While nearly all statements Donald Trump made in public and on Stern’s show are salacious, check out pages 5, 6, and 7 for the bombshells.

1. Donald’s terrorist attack paranoia led to this comment

Ivanka Trump probably rolled her eyes at her dad’s solution to preventing another 9/11-style attack. While on Stern’s show, Donald Trump said, “You have a red button in the plane, and the pilot has a huge problem in the back. He’s got two or three terrorists, you know, crazy. He presses a button and sleeping gas comes out, the entire back of the plane goes to sleep.”
