A series of short plays tracks Trump's meddling with the women he has encountered and employed decade by decade. From the Beauty Pageant days, The Apprentice, the Scottish Golf Course debacle.. via the golden age of manufacture of Trump steaks.. up to his following of devoted female Republican voters and into the future of the man with the mythical hair. This piece takes a darkly comedic look at the man who claims to love women, but time and time again has grabbed them by the, oh it's too boring to even say it..
