It’s not been a good week for Donald Trump. His debate performance was less than stellar and since then his less than perfect track record with women has reemerged as a central talking point. Today, a Howard Stern interview from 2003 has resurfaced. While he was talking about women he does and does not find attractive (as one does), he brought up Paris Hilton.
“Now, somebody who a lot of people don’t give credit to but in actuality is really beautiful is Paris Hilton,” he said. “I’ve known Paris Hilton from the time she’s 12, her parents are friends of mine, and the first time I saw her she walked into the room and I said, ‘Who the hell is that?”
Stern asked, “Did you wanna bang her?”
“Well, at 12, I wasn’t interested…I’ve never been into that … but she was beautiful,” said Trump.
After Trump talked about how beautiful Hilton is, he said “she’s dumb like a fox,” and then said he’s seen her sex tape. “Melania [Trump] showed it to me,” he said.
