The Daily Show's Trevor Noah showed an old clip of Donald Trump and then-wife Marla Maples appearing on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous in 1994.
Trump was asked what attributes his one-year-old daughter, Tiffany, had inherited from her mother and the billionaire replied, "Well, I think that she's got a lot of Marla, she's a really beautiful baby, and she's got Marla's legs. We don't know whether she's got this part yet (gestures toward his chest), but time will tell."
Entertainment Weekly called the comments "crass" and the Daily Beast dubbed it "disturbing."
But Robin Leach, who conducted the interview, told IE the whole thing comes down to people "getting their knickers in a knot" over nothing.
"It was just a totally casual remark ... I defend his remark completely," Leach said.
