Report details alleged Trump affair with Playboy playmate Karen McDougal

Report details alleged Trump affair with Playboy playmate Karen McDougal

A former Playboy model kept handwritten notes about an alleged nine-month affair with President Donald Trump that began in 2006 which outline a series of subterfuges used to hide it, according to the New Yorker.

The magazine's story was published Friday.

Trump, who had been married to model Melania for around two years in 2006, would also fly her around the country to various events where he was attending, McDougal claims. The New Yorker says AMI has only published nine of nearly 100 promised columns.

Of course, The White House totally denies the story. "This is an old story that is just more fake news", according to the statement.

In July, 2006, McDougal joined Trump at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, at the Edgewood Resort, on Lake Tahoe.

McDougal's account of her alleged affair with Trump was purchased for $150,000 by American Media, Inc. - the publisher of the National Enquirer - but the news outlet never ran the story.

Instead, the company reached an agreement with McDougal to author a regular column about aging and fitness, though that deal largely went unfulfilled after Trump won the White House, according to the New Yorker.

NGO Monitor responded, "Ahed Tamimi is a prime example of how children are exploited and weaponized in the Arab-Israeli conflict". In the December 15 video, she talks about President Donald Trump's recognition a week earlier of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"The interactions that McDougal outlines in the document share striking similarities with the stories of other women who claim to have had sexual relationships with Trump", Farrow wrote.

The former model says she worries what will happen now that she has made a decision to speak out, but says she was prompted to do so by the emergence of the Daniels revelations and the openness of the #MeToo movement. While he admitted that her contract with A.M.I. supposedly now allows her to respond to journalistic inquires, she and her lawyers still don't 100 percent believe the letter of the contract and are still afraid to speak out.

McDougal, described a legal agreement that she willingly signed and which was created to silence her.

Ronan Farrow has a new story in the New Yorker today that further confirms what we all intuitively knew to be true, which is that before becoming president Donald Trump fucked around wantonly as a married man. She rejected the payment, telling him she wanted to sleep with him and wasn't expecting money. The Enquirer never ran the piece, a practice known in the tabloid industry as "catch and kill".

The story comes as Trump continues to face questions about an alleged affair with Stephanie Clifford, a porn star who uses the stage name Stormy Daniels, during that same period. It is very obvious, especially since we have gone through this same drill many times before, that there will be no real impact on him politically (though Melania may be another story) because of this.

Deadline reports McDougal also describes an "elaborate system" used by Trump to keep his affairs private.

Trump has denied the allegations and at one point threatened to sue his accusers, though he has yet to do so.
