Pictured: Emma Thompson laughing while trying to control the wet heaves as she thinks about going on a date with Trump.
During an interview on the Scandinavian TV show Skavlan (via UsWeekly) yesterday, Emma Thompson said that like Salma Hayek and Princess Diana, she once found herself being the object of Donald Trump’s affections. One day after her divorce from Kenneth Branagh became final, Emma was in her trailer on the L.A. set of 1998’s Primary Colors when she got a call and heard the words that probably made her cooze close up and dry up. The voice on the other end said, “Hi, it’s Donald Trump here.”
Emma said that when her trailer phone rang, it was as though “a moose had just entered my trailer.” That’s offensive to moose since I don’t believe they go around grabbing pussies without permission. Trump called Emma to offer her a place to stay in one of his buildings and also to ask her out to dinner. Trump said that they’d really get along. Emma quickly shooed his ass away:
“I didn’t know what to do with myself. I was on my own and I just said, ‘Okay, well um, I’ll get back to you.'”
She said that she never met him before that call and she’s never met him since.
Emma Thompson played a Hillary Clinton-like character in Primary Colors, and so I’m picturing her, sitting there in “Hillary Clinton” drag as Trump is asking her out. My brain didn’t need that today.
Trump separated from Marla Maples in 1997, so he was probably on the hunt for his next wife when he called Emma. Aqua’s Turn Back Time is playing in my head and this is giving me some Sliding Doors vibes, because things may have been different if Emma said yes. Quick! Somebody get Emma into a time machine so she can go back to the 90s and take that date with Trump. Then she can gather up dirt on him and use it to expose him when he runs for president years later! I know, look at dumb-brained me acting like it would’ve mattered. Shut up and just let me have my dramatic fantasies!
