Editors' note: This story was based on reporting that was later proved to be erroneous. Salon regrets the error.

To say the least, President-elect Donald Trump is unconventionally close with his oldest daughter, Ivanka. Here's just one example:

Here are more.

After his pre-recorded interview with Trump in September, Dr. Oz allegedly cut out a questionable moment wherein the real estate mogul said he kisses Ivanka "as often as I can."

But, ultimately, concern of incestuousness wouldn't merit attention had the two not appeared together on "The View" in 2006, and had the real estate mogul not suggested he'd "be dating" Ivanka were he not her father. The comment was not overlooked even at the time; co-host Joy Behar asked, "Who are you, Woody Allen?" Trump laughed.

Because the YouTube clip cuts off after Behar's quip, far fewer people know how Ivanka responded. According to Scottish journalist Hugo Rifkind, she replied, "If he wasn't my father, I would spray him with Mace."

As of this writing no clip or link is known to corroborate Rifkind's claim.

St. Louis-based writer Sarah Kendzior, though, found mention of the quote in an archived "Quoteables" section of the Chicago Tribune from 2006.
