The Huffington Post managed to find evidence that back in 2012, Donald Trump was billed as the author of an erotic novel entitled Trump Tower. The novel now accredits Jeffrey Robinson as it's author, but early promotional materials describe the book as "the debut novel from ‘New York Times’-bestselling author, international business mogul, television superstar, and New York City icon, Donald J.

The book revolves around a building manager who was responsible for keeping Trump Tower running smoothly despite having to deal with his many hot, rich, sex-starved tenants who can't stop boinking each other.

It appears that Jeffrey Robinson was acting as Trump's ghost writer, but before the book was published they decided to drop Trump's "author credit" and just deem Robinson the writer (the original cover of the book indicated that it was written by "Donald J.Trump with Jeffrey Robinson").

Todd Van Luling, who originally reported on this story for The Huffington Post, actually read the novel and pulled out a few particularly confusing and disturbing excerpts to illustrate the "incredibly sexist" nature of the book. Here is my personal favorite blurb:

Shari looked up, half-waved, and brought her feet up. “Pleased to make your acquaintance.” He watched them for a moment, then stepped into the room and got into bed with them. “When you’re done with him, luv,” Ricky said to Shari, “you get on top of me. Just be careful this bleeding ankle bracelet don’t leave no marks.”
