Marla Maples ‘dating’ Trump critic

THE US President may want to look away now.

The New York Post reports that Marla Maples is dating Trump-baiting TV host Donny Deutsch.

Sources say that Deutsch - who has called Mr Trump "physically disgusting" and "a pathetic snivelling little president" on US network MSNBC - and Mr Trump's second wife were spotted dining cozily at the Polo Bar on Tuesday night.

"It was their first or second date," a source said. "She looked amazing."

A second source confirmed the pair is in the early stages of a relationship.

Diners were gobsmacked when Ms Maples - married to Mr Trump from 1993 to 1999 and who had daughter Tiffany Trump - joined the ad mogul and outspoken Morning Joe contributor at his table.

The pair left together in his car.

Deutsch has consistently railed against the president, calling Mr Trump a "sociopath" and saying, "I've known him for 20 years ... He's not the same guy. You can see it in his eyes and in his speech pattern, and most frighteningly his behaviour."

Last week, in response to Trump's "s**thole" remarks, Deutsch said, "If we take his implied support of [alleged] paedophile [Roy Moore, the failed Senate candidate for Alabama] and now if we take this additional very clear racist thing, he's an evil man."
