Donald Trump as role model for his son

I, for one, am not so ready to heap praise on the Trump children.  What ideas about being a man did the Trump sons learn from their father as a role model?  A 2013 interview on BuzzFeed with Donald Trump, Jr. has been dug up, where the topic of sexual harassment of women in the workplace came up.  His response:

If you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. . . .  You should go maybe teach kindergarten. . . .  You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know.”

And then there's the video clip of a 2006 interview by Howard Stern of Donald Trump, accompanied by Ivanka and Don, Jr.   Ivanka was 22 and not yet married at the time.  Stern says something to Trump like, "You know a lot about sexual predators.   You're one."   There's laughter, and Trump smirks and says, "It's true."   This prompted even more gales of laughter, especially from Ivanka, who patted her father affectionately on the shoulder.
