(CNN)Donald Trump has been rating women his whole life. And a simple ranking on a scale of 1 to 10 wasn't enough: he often broke it down into body parts. "From the midsection to the shoulders -- she's a 10," Trump said in an interview with Howard Stern, who had asked him to rate the actress Halle Barry, among many others. "The face is a solid 8. And the legs are maybe a bit less than that."
