During an interview with shock jock Howard Stern in 2008, President Donald Trump bragged about how he turned away after witnessing an 80-year-old man fall off a stage and hit his head, according to a report by Yahoo News UK.
The old man’s injury was “disgusting” according to the disturbing confession Trump made.
The president described the incident, which happened during a charity dinner at is Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida: “We had the Marines. And the Marines were there, and it was terrible because all these rich people, they’re there to support the Marines, but they’re really there to get their picture in the Palm Beach Post.
“So, you have all these really rich people, and a man, about 80 years old – very wealthy man, a lot of people didn’t like him – he fell off the stage. So what happens is, this guy falls off right on his face, hits his head, and I thought he died.
“And you know what I did? I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s disgusting,’ and I turned away.
“I couldn’t, you know, he was right in front of me and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him. He’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible.”
Trump said he just sat there and waited until the Marines, who were being honored at the event, came and carried the man away.
“They call it a human stretcher, where they put their arms out with, like, five guys on each side. I was saying, ‘Get that blood cleaned up! It’s disgusting!’ The next day, I forgot to call [the man] to say he’s OK,” Trump said. “It’s just not my thing.”
