Trump Appearance In Porn Movie Found As Miss Universe Attack Totally Backfires (politicususa.com link): Donald Trump told America to check the sex tape, and unfortunately for him, what was found was the Republican candidate for president's appearance in a Playboy adult film.
Donald Trump told America to check the sex tape, and unfortunately for him, what was found was the Republican candidate for president’s appearance in a Playboy adult film. Trump opened up this can of worms with his now infamous 3:20 AM tweet:
Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed went looking for the tape and what he found was Donald Trump in an adult film:
"Trump’s role in the porn is relatively benign and centers around him breaking a bottle of champagne on a Playboy-branded limo while several of the playmates are visiting New York City. BuzzFeed News obtained the footage from the online-only Buffalo, New York–based adult video store Cinema Cornucopia.
Other scenes from the film feature fully nude women posing in sexual positions, dancing naked, touching themselves while naked, touching each other sensually, rubbing honey on themselves, taking a bath, and dressing in costumes."
All of this is self-inflicted. If Donald Trump had not told America to check the sex tape while he launched a late night Twitter attack on a former Miss Universe, his role in a Playboy adult film would probably have never surfaced.
Donald Trump asked for sex tape made by a 17-year old girl (Politico link): In an early morning tweet storm, Donald Trump lashed out at former Miss Universe Alicia Machado Friday, calling her “disgusting” for allegedly appearing in a sex tape.
Machado has starred in risqué reality TV programs and posed nude for the Mexican version of Playboy magazine, the Daily Beast and other outlets that investigated the claim found no evidence that she has starred in any pornographic films and that the clips posted online actually feature another woman.
But Trump’s views on sex tapes seem to be continually evolving, because in his long history in public life, he has taken a variety of stands on such tapes — and on how the women in them should be regarded.
One pattern does emerge: If the woman is a friend, he considers the tape a non-issue at worst. If it’s someone he’s feuding with, then he thinks she has some explaining to do.
In 2009, Trump called on Miss USA runner-up Carrie Prejean to release a sex tape she made at age 17. Prejean, dueling with Trump over her dismissal as Miss USA, had criticized Trump in a book for allegedly sorting contestants in his pageants by how sexually attracted he was to them. She had also recently said she filmed an erotic video for her boyfriend when she was 17, calling it her “biggest mistake.”
In response, Trump told the television show Extra: “She's trying to act like she's a nun... so maybe she should release the sex tape and people would see whether or not she is a nun."

"Notably, she did resist Trump's insistence that she accept Playboy magazine's million-dollar centerfold offer. "Trump himself was on the phone negotiating the fee," remembered a top Playboy editor. "He wanted her to do the nude layout. She didn't." ("I'm thankful for my body, but I didn't want to exploit it," Marla offers. "How would I ever be taken seriously?")
Trump Admits He Urged His Mistress To Have An Abortion In Unearthed Audio - Trump wanted Tiffany aborted ... newly unearthed video reveals (Occupy Democrats.com link): In this clip from The Last Word with Laurence O’Donnell, the host brings up some old audio of Trump discussing his then-mistress Marla Maples’ pregnancy – and calls out Trump for obviously wanting her to have an abortion, a fundamental right that he now wants to deny to every woman in America.
But just two days ago, Trump said that we need to ban abortion and punish the women who have them. It’s a show of outrageous hypocrisy that highlights how Trump sees the world. While he is happy to employ his mistress’s Supreme Court-mandated right to have an abortion should she choose, he has no qualms about abandoning his prior held positions in order to cater to the vapid religious extremists that make up the Republican Party American Taliban.
The incident highlights how critically important choice is to our society. Maples was presented with a choice, and choose she did. Against Trump’s wishes she chose not to abort the child, who grew up to be Tiffany Trump. That was her choice.
But as O’Donnell remarks, “in Donald Trump’s world, no man in America would be able to say to his girlfriend ‘what are we going to do about this’ upon discovering an accidental pregnancy. There would be no legal option other than having a baby.” The idea that he would “punish” women who have dangerously unsafe illegal abortions is just jaw-dropping insult to heinous injury.

Trump Attorney Fires Back After ‘Jane Doe’ Refiles Rape Lawsuit with New Witness (Law News link): Two weeks ago, “Jane Doe” dismissed her rape lawsuit against Donald Trump and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, but promised to refile. It happened on Friday. She and her attorney brought forward an amended complaint to The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. This one includes a new witness.
The original lawsuit claimed Trump raped the then-13-year-old plaintiff in the 1990s. There was also a second anonymous woman, known as “Tiffany Doe.” She said that Epstein had her pickup teenage girls for his parties. One of these girls was Jane, and Tiffany said she witnessed Trump and Epstein rape the plaintiff several times.
The new complaint adds a third woman. She’s known in court documents as “Joan Doe.”
“In the 1994-95 school year, I was told by the plaintiff in Jane Doe v. Trump and Epstein (1:16-cv-04642, SDNY) that the plaintiff was subject to sexual contact by the Defendants at parties in New York City during the summer of 1994,” her declaration states.
The complaint also builds on the lawsuit’s original defamation claim.

Trump Tax Records Obtained by The Times Reveal He Could Have Avoided Paying Taxes for Nearly Two Decades (New York Times link): Donald J. Trump declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax returns, a tax deduction so substantial it could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for up to 18 years, records obtained by The New York Times show.
The 1995 tax records, never before disclosed, reveal the extraordinary tax benefits that Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, derived from the financial wreckage he left behind in the early 1990s through mismanagement of three Atlantic City casinos, his ill-fated foray into the airline business and his ill-timed purchase of the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan.
Tax experts hired by The Times to analyze Mr. Trump’s 1995 records said tax rules that are especially advantageous to wealthy filers would have allowed Mr. Trump to use his $916 million loss to cancel out an equivalent amount of taxable income over an 18-year period.
Although Mr. Trump’s taxable income in subsequent years is as yet unknown, a $916 million loss in 1995 would have been large enough to wipe out more than $50 million a year in taxable income over 18 years.
The Republican presidential candidate praised the Islamic Law, or Shariah, system during a 60-second syndicated daily radio commentary called "Trumped!" that he recorded from 2004 to 2008. In a January 2008 segment, Trump discussed a news story of a Saudi man who had divorced his wife for watching a television show while alone at home because, in Trump's telling, the husband considered it tantamount to being alone with a strange man.
"Men in Saudi Arabia have the authority to divorce their wives without going to the courts," Trump said. "I guess that would also mean they don't need prenuptial agreements. The fact is, no courts, no judges—Saudi Arabia sounds like a very good place to get a divorce."
When it comes to Trump's beliefs about women, Trump's radio vignettes often mirror his own life and his past treatment of and attitudes toward women that are now haunting his campaign.
In recent days, Trump has threatened to begin attacking Hillary Clinton for her husband's infidelities. But it's Trump who has extensive experience with divorce—and it's no wonder he would have preferred the Saudi system. Before finalizing his divorce from his first wife, Ivana, Trump began seeing Marla Maples, who would become his second wife. The divorce required five depositions, during which he repeatedly took the Fifth.
Trump wanted to fire women who weren't pretty enough, say employees at his California golf club (Los Angeles Times link): Donald Trump wanted only the pretty ones, his employees said.
After the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes opened for play in 2005, its world-famous owner didn’t stop by more than a few times a year to visit the course hugging the coast of the Pacific.
When Trump did visit, the club’s managers went on alert. They scheduled the young, thin, pretty women on staff to work the clubhouse restaurant — because when Trump saw less-attractive women working at his club, according to court records, he wanted them fired.
"I had witnessed Donald Trump tell managers many times while he was visiting the club that restaurant hostesses were 'not pretty enough' and that they should be fired and replaced with more attractive women,” Hayley Strozier, who was director of catering at the club until 2008, said in a sworn declaration.
David Duke Says He and Donald Trump Have the Same Message (Time link): Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke is running for Senate in Louisiana, and he says Donald Trump’s popularity is helping him in the race.
“I love it,” Duke told the LA Times. “The fact that Donald Trump’s doing so well, it proves that I’m winning. I am winning.”
Duke also told the LA Times that Trump’s proposed policies, like building a wall along the border with Mexico and banning Muslims from entering the country, show the country is open to a white power message. “He’s talking about it in a visceral way,” Duke said. “Donald Trump is talking implicitly. I’m talking explicitly.”
Bruce Springsteen Was Criticized For Bashing Trump. His Response Is Perfect (Occupy Democrats.com link): Bruce Springsteen doubled down on his remarks against Trump this week, following controversial comments he made in his interview with Rolling Stone. The rock legend and American icon ripped into the Republican nominee, making it absolutely clear that Springsteen doesn’t care what Trump supporters think about his opinion on the candidate:
Mod: That's why they call him The Boss.
