It’s already widely known that Donald Trump cheated on his first wife with his second wife and so on, but as he’s tried to convince the American public that he’s fit for the Presidency, he’s attempted to paint himself as a changed man. This has come even as a dozen or more women have come forward to separately accuse him of sexual assault. And now it turns out Trump allegedly cheated on his current wife Melania with a Playboy Playmate of the Year.
In what might be the most “Donald Trump” story of the 2016 election, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the National Enquirer went to extensive (and expensive) means to squash the story of the Playboy Playmate in question, who had intended to tell the world about the affair Trump allegedly had with her while he was married to Melania.
Instead the Enquirer, which is closely tied to Donald Trump, bought the story exclusively with the misleading motivation of never publishing it and making sure she could never publish it anywhere else either. ABC News, a much more respectable news outlet, had been planning to report her story before the Enquirer stepped in and offered her too much money to say no to. However, she’s now taking legal action over the fact that she had been tricked into her legally required silence.
Karen McDougal was the 1998 Playmate of the Year, and she asserts that her affair with Donald Trump took place in 2006. That would place it seven years into Donald’s relationship with Melania, and just one year into their marriage; the same year that their child Barron was born. That fits with the claims of several of Trump’s sexual assault accusers, many of whom say he assaulted them in 2005 or 2006, roughly the period of time in which Melania was pregnant. Trump is on tape as having referred to Melania as being physically unattractive during her pregnancy – and now it appears that his solution was to simply cheat on her.
