Another day, another Donald Trump affair. Former Playboy model Karen McDougal has revealed she had an affair with the 45th POTUS in 2006. The affair was documented in an interview with the New Yorker.
McDougal, described a legal agreement that she willingly signed and which was designed to silence her. Much like porn star Stormy Daniels, the affair occurred only months after Trump’s son Barron was born.
The New Yorker report, by Ronan Farrow, cites dozens of pages of documents supporting her account. McDougal was attending a pool party at the Playboy Mansion in 2006 when she met the future U.S. President. A friend provided an eight-page letter she wrote in which the following account of their meeting was revealed.
“Trump and McDougal began talking frequently on the phone, and soon had what McDougal described as their first date: dinner in a private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel. McDougal wrote that Trump impressed her. “I was so nervous! I was into his intelligence + charm. Such a polite man,” she wrote. “We talked for a couple hours – then, it was “ON”! We got naked + had sex.” As McDougal was getting dressed to leave, Trump did something that surprised her. “He offered me money,” she wrote. “I looked at him (+ felt sad) + said, ‘No thanks – I’m not ‘that girl.’ I slept w/you because I like you – NOT for money’ – He told me ‘you are special.’ ””
The affair reportedly continued for months with McDougal meeting up with Trump whenever he was in LA which was apparently, “a lot.”
She claimed that Trump always stayed in the same Beverly Hills Hotel and ordered the same meal—steak and mashed potatoes. She also recalls that he never drank.
In true Trump fashion, he often sent her articles about his family and signed copies of his books and sun visors from his golf courses.
McDougal says she bought her own airfare and would be reimbursed for her travels to see Trump, although he did reimburse her with cash. However, he didn’t try to hide her from his immediate family. She claims Trump introduced her to his clan and even took her to his private residences. She also attended the a January, 2007, launch party in Los Angeles for Trump’s short-lived liquor brand, Trump Vodka. McDougal was photographed entering the event, and sat at a table with Kim Kardashian, Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Trump, Jr.’s wife, Vanessa, who was pregnant at the time.
In true Trump fashion, she also revealed his racism. McDougal’s friend who was dating a black man and Trump reportedly said she obviously likes, “the big black dick.”
McDougal actually tried to bring her story to light in August 2016. The story was purchased by American Media Inc., which publishes the National Enquirer. The publication paid $150,000 for rights to McDougal’s story. The CEO and chairman of AMI is described as a personal friend of Trump and often buys stories to kill them, sometimes to protect the subject of the story. AMI denies it bought the story to hide it from the public eye, instead claiming it wasn’t credible.
McDougal, a Republican, said she didn’t realize the scope of the gag agreement she originally signed. She decided to ignore that order because of the current political and social climate.
Trump is denying the affair, just as he did the Stormy Daniels tryst which has seen been proven to be true.
Welcome to the Red State…
