Those two media narratives just suffered a huge blow though at a recent Trump press conference with his seemingly spontaneous response to a question from a women in the audience.
Though it was difficult to hear the woman’s specific question, it likely had something to do with Trump’s hotels and the people who work in them, based on his response.
As he proceeded to answer her question, he suddenly told her “Come up here.” Then he turned to gathered reporters and asked, “Do you mind if I do a job interview right now? We need good people!”

The young woman, who is black, and believed to be a veteran and 9/11 survivor, nervously explained that she was interested and had experience in design and interior decoration, laughingly agreeing that she really liked what Trump had done with his building.
“So here’s what I’m gonna do,” Trump said, pointing to a man off to the side of him on the stage. “There’s the man. Stand right over there.”
Returning his attention to the crowd in front of him, he declared, “If we can make a good deal on the salary, she’s gonna probably have a job, OK.”
The woman turned around and gave Trump a hug and a kiss on the cheek as he wished her the best, before returning to her seat, no doubt glowing at the lucrative job prospect just offered to her.
By all media accounts, Trump should have ignored or scolded the woman and kicked her out of his press conference, were he truly a racist and a sexist.
Instead, he revealed a glimpse of the generosity those close to him often speak of, offering this woman a job on the spot to work for him, most likely in designing and decorating his buildings.
You probably won’t see this clip played on the nightly news though, as it utterly destroys the media’s narrative regarding his alleged attitude towards women and minorities.
