Former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal claims (with a lot of evidence) that she had an intimate relationship with Donald Trump over 10 years ago, and even though he’s denying it ever took place, Karen says they slept together dozens and dozens of times — and even fell in love.
That’s just one juicy nugget from the beauty, who gave a revealing interview to CNN, saying it all started shortly after Donald’s wife Melania gave birth to Barron Trump. According to Karen’s timeline, the affair started in June 2006 and lasted until April 2007.
He compared her to his favorite kid, Ivanka.
"Did he ever compare you to any of his kids?" Anderson Cooper asked during the interview.
"You know, he, he's very proud of Ivanka, as he should be," Karen responded. "I mean, she's a brilliant woman. She's beautiful. She's, that's his daughter, and he should be proud of her. He said I was beautiful like her and, you know, you're a smart girl. And there wasn't a lot of comparing, but there was some, yeah. I heard a lot about her."
Donald took her for a hooker.
"Well, after we had been intimate, he — he tried to pay me," Karen revealed. "And I actually didn't know how to take that."
"Did he actually try to hand you money?" Cooper asked.
"He did," she responded, saying she cried on the way home.
Karen kept a journal during their affair.
"You gave us the journal that you kept," Anderson revealed, diary in hand for the camera. "You would write down on days you saw him, you wouldn't write out his full name."
"No, I either called him T or DT, because if anybody found this, I wouldn't want them to expose myself or expose him," Karen said.
Um, Trump hates using condoms. (Sorry for the visual.)
"Did he ever use protection?" Anderson asked.
"No," she responded. "You know, we talked about it, right beforehand. He was starting to, and then he was like 'I don't like these things.'"
So, did she have anything positive to say about the man she claims she fell in love with? He has great posture.
"I was attracted to him, yeah. He's a nice-looking man. I liked his charisma. He's got great posture. And he was nice,” Karen said.
The affair kicked off after Karen met the future president at a shoot for The Apprentice at the Playboy Mansion. “He said hello and then throughout the night it was kind of obvious that there was an attraction,” she said.
The Donald asked her for her phone number at the end of the night after sparking multiple conversations with her, she said, and their first “date” was dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
And yes, she feel guilty and bad for Melania. “When I look back where I was back then, I know it’s wrong,” Karen said. “I’m really sorry for that.”
And she’s not mad, she even voted for him in the presidential election. But she’s also filed a suit against The National Enquirer’s parent company, American Media Inc, which paid her $150,000 a first-person account of the affair, but never published it. She wants out of a non-disclosure agreement she signed in 2016, so she can speak freely on the matter.
