A condolence note from Donald Trump to actress Kelly Preston after the death of her 16-year-old son was discovered by Mother Jones and it has taken the internet by storm.
As reported by Mother Jones, in January 2009, Kelly Preston and John Travolta’s son Jett passed away at the age of 16 after suffering a seizure while on a family vacation. Four days later, Trump blogged on the now-defunct Trump University website and his “condolence” quickly devolved into a story of how she rejected his advances.
“A long time ago, before I was married, I met Kelly Preston at a club and worked like hell to try and pick her up,” Trump wrote in a Jan. 6 post.
“She was beautiful, personable, and definitely had allure. At the time I had no idea she was married to John Travolta.”
He continued, “In any event, my track record on this subject has always been outstanding, but Kelly wouldn’t give me the time of day. She was very nice, very elegant, but I didn’t have a chance with her, and that was that.”
Oh. My. God. Even the death of a child couldn’t keep Donald Trump from talking about hitting on the boy’s mother.
