Donald Trump Says He groped Melania Trump in Public
Donald Trump thinks his daughter looks down on him, that his germaphobia could be psychological, and admits that he’s groped Melania Trump in public before.
Those comments, along with various eyebrow-raising but predictable vulgarities, can be found in a new, online archive of Trump’s 15 hours of radio banter with the shock jock. In them, he discusses the relative hotness of his wives (and almost every other female celebrity of the moment) and his feelings about his daughter Ivanka, while chortling with Stern’s crew as they joked about who was more “gay” and whether getting vomited on was more gross than eating food that had been on someone’s anus.
All these details and more are coming to light after a website called Factba.se published an archive containing some 15 hours of Donald Trump’s appearances on the “Howard Stern Show” dating back to 1993.
In one exchange from November 2004, Stern asks Trump if Ivanka Trump was dating anyone, to which he replies she’s dating a blue blood from Bedminster, New Jersey.
Trump: “My daughter’s becoming a blue blood, she’s becoming very white shoe. That’s true.”
Stern: “You [should] introduce her to me.”
Trump: “I think my daughter looks down on me. She said, ‘oh my god-‘”
Before that, in a tape recorded in November 1999, Trump admits to getting physical with his girlfriend at the time, Melania Trump, then known as Melania Knauss.
Stern: “Have you ever felt her up in public?”
Stern: “Yeah. As I know.”
Trump: “I’m very well-behaved actually and almost always I’m very down the middle.”
Then there’s Trump’s infamous germaphobic tendencies.
In 1993, Trump admitted his constant hand washing could be mental.
Stern: “You wash your hands how many times.”
Trump: “As many times as possible.”
Stern: “You realize that’s a psychological problem.”
Trump: “It could be a psychological problem.”
Trump: “No. I like it. I like cleanliness. Cleanliness is a nice thing. Not only hands, body, everything.”
So why are these old interviews making waves?
Stern had refused to re-air any of his past interviews with Trump during the presidential campaign because he felt it would be a “betrayal” since people are already attacking him, adding that his guests on the show were meant to be entertaining.
During the presidential election last year, Trump also explained that his previously aired conversations with Stern were all made in good fun.
“I never anticipated running for office or being a politician, so I could have fun with Howard on the radio and everyone would love it. People do love it,” Trump said. “I could say whatever I wanted when I was an entrepreneur, a business guy.”
Still, despite Stern’s attempts to keep the vault closed, after Factba.se made a public plea for the tapes, we now have these 35 eyebrow-raising interviews to re-live.
