BuzzFeed unearthed yet another audio clip of a Trump talking about women in the workplace, and it isn't pretty.

In an interview on The Opie and Anthony Show in 2013, Donald Trump Jr.—the eldest of the Trump brood and executive vice president of the Trump organization—talked about those pesky women who just can't hang and fling around allegations of sexual harassment in the workplace. 

At one point, the hosts joked about pulling up photos of naked women on their computers and wondered if it wouldn't be hilarious "if we showed tits and then Donald sued."

Trump Jr. joked that he would "feel harassed!" by the behavior. "This is my get-rich-quick scheme," he said on the show. "I’m now suing you guys because I feel uncomfortable. And by the way, that’s what happens in the world. I can play along, I can be fine, and then I can decide randomly—'Uh oh, you now have crossed the line, even though I’ve been going with it.'"

One of the hosts said that because women complain about sexual harassment "that’s why we hate having them around. They stop us from doing what we want to do." Trump Jr. agreed and noted that he's "of that mindset."

"If you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. Like, you should go maybe teach kindergarten. I think it’s a respectable position," Trump Jr. said. "You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know. But listen, there’s a place where you have to draw the line. But today the stuff you get in trouble for…"

Perhaps the "basic stuff that's become a problem in the workforce today" that Trump refers to is the real and very pervasive assumption that men in power can do "anything" to women, including, but not limited to, grabbing them by the genitals.
