Donald Trump’s history of misogyny and sexualizing his daughter came to a head in an old interview unveiled by The Daily Show.

Trevor Noah knows that simply using Trump’s words against him no longer works because Trump is not an ordinary presidential candidate. Trump has even gone on defense by pointing out that other politicians have said worse than he has behind closed doors. But Noah persists, digging up an interview with Trump and then-wife Marla Maples from 1994 where they’re both asked what attributes their 1-year-old daughter Tiffany gets from each parent.

It’s a rather innocent question and one with plenty of possible answers. However, Trump managed to pull off a very Trump answer while reducing a baby to her body parts in the process.

“We know airing this clip will change nothing,” Noah said. “All we ask, all we ask is one thing—the next time you’re about to hand Donald Trump your baby, maybe reconsider.”
