Candice Bergen Once Went On A Date With Trump As A Teenager—It Didn’t Go Well 😳

Oh, to be young and in love! Or at least interested. Well, there was a date. A quick date that ended early.

That’s how Candice Bergen, star of the upcoming Murphy Brown revival, feels about her date with then-teenager, now-President Donald Trump way back in the day. Speaking with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, Bergen describes the “dud” of a date and why it wasn’t destined to be:

Bergen, now 72, recounts the circumstances that brought her together with Trump (then nothing more than the humble beneficiary of many millions of dollars):

I was very young. I was about 18 and ― Trump and I are about the same age, or as he would point out, I’m about six months older. And it was when I was at Penn.

Sadly, according to Bergen, things didn’t work out:

I was home very early.

What could a man as suave as President Trump have done to ruin his chance with a fabulous lady like Bergen? Well…

I might have invented this because it’s so perfect, but I think he was wearing a burgundy suit with a burgundy vest and a burgundy patent leather boots and was in a burgundy limousine. And so it was kind of a symphony of burgundy.

Oof! The classic “wearing too much burgundy” mistake! We’ve all made it.

Twitter was enthralled by the story:
