Donald Trump has said a lot of things—sometimes strange, mostly false, and usually disturbing. Like, this is a man who freely admits that he wishes he could date his own daughter. Oh, and there was that clip of him talking about his infant daughter’s breasts in 1994.

Well, The Daily Show has unearthed another unsettling clip, this time of Trump making a joke about statutory rape.

During a morning radio show with Don Imus back in 2004, Trump commented on the case of 23-year-old middle school teacher Debra Lafave, who was convicted and pled guilt to having sex with one of her 14-year-old students.
