Donald Trump’s not looking good right now with the Republican party. He’s lost the support of many prominent members in the wake of 2005 hot mic lewd statements about women. The Washington Post released the damning footage of Trump and Billy Bush going to town, but Trump claimed the most revolving soundbite with a “grab them by the p*ssy,” which has horrified folks more than anything he’s said in over a year of presidential candidacy. This doesn’t touch how Trump discussed kissing women whenever he felt like it, and they’d just take it because he’s famous.
As if on cue, more Donald Trump recordings have dropped. This time, no one can blame a hot mic because these are some old Howard Stern conversations. Such snippets are always fruitful with the most recent one revealing Trump’s marriage advice to Stern, which was “vagina is expensive.” From a policy standpoint, much fuss has also been made of Trump’s admission to Stern that he supported the Iraq invasion (though one can call Sean Hannity for further “clarification”). And who could forget the time Trump told Stern that Melania doesn’t poop?
Though it doesn’t seem possible, some more Stern recordings have dropped, courtesy of CNN. This time, the setting is 2006, and the two men discuss Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka, and whether she had recently gotten breast implants. Trump denied that Ivanka had done so and insisted that he’d know if she did. He added that she’s “always been voluptuous.”
The next exchange is even worse. Stern asked Ivanka if it was alright to call Ivanka “a piece of ass,” and Trump was like, sure, why not?
Trump: “My daughter is beautiful, Ivanka.”
Stern: “By the way, your daughter.”
Trump: “She’s beautiful.”
Stern: “Can I say this? A piece of ass.”
You can hear several other clips at CNN, which are portions of interviews that span from 1997 to 2006. One snippet features the two men discussing the perfect age to date a woman. Trump stated that age 35 was tops (“It’s called check-out time”). Trump also admitted that he “couldn’t care less” whether he satisfied women in bed, and they discussed sexual positions used by Tiger Woods and one of his mistresses. At one point, Stern asks, “Have you had a black women in bed?” Trump answers, “Well, it depends on what your definition of black is.” The billionaire then hinted that he had a “rainbow coalition, as Rev. Jesse would say” in his bed. And there’s some junk about threesomes too, if you want to hear it.
