Presumably as part of Donald Trump's master plan to defeat the media by having so many scandals that journalists die of exhaustion, new audio has emerged of Donald Trump talking to Howard Stern. CNN pored through Howard Stern Show tapes to unearth a lot of great gems. Trump has been a frequent guest on the shock jock's show, which would be fine if he had never decided to run for president or the GOP hadn't nominated him, but they did. Now there's 20 years of Stern interviews to mine.
First, here's the conversation about "piece of ass" Ivanka (then 23) from a 2004 interview:
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."
What's weird is not that Howard Stern would try to get a rise out of Trump like this. What's weird is Trump's embrace of it. Then, in a 2006 interview years later, the conversation picks up like it never left off!
Stern: “Your daughter is looking more beautiful than ever...I saw her in FHM... my question is did your daughter get breast implants?"
Stern: "No, you mean that?
Trump: "No. No, she didn't. I mean, I would know if she did, the answer is no. Why, did she look at little more fat?"
Stern: "She looks more voluptuous than ever."
Trump: "Nah, she didn't get 'em."
Stern: "And she got thinner..."
Trump: "She's actually always been very voluptuous.”
When it comes to dating younger women, Stern asked whether Trump thought he could be "banging 24 year olds." Trump responded "absolutely," and that he'd "have no problem" with it (Melania was 30 at the time). Trump furthermore explained that 35 years old is "check-out time" for his girlfriends.
Finally, evoking the many rumors of Trump's reluctance about African-American beauty queens in his pageants, Stern asks trump if he's “had a black woman in bed.” Said Trump, "it depends on what your definition of black is" before making some jokes about Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition.
