A bit of vintage Donald Trump was resurrected Thursday, specifically the time the current Republican presidential nominee and then-businessman/socialite purportedly told Howard Stern that “vagina is expensive.”
Trump has been friends with the radio shock jock for a long time, and unfortunately for the 2016 Republican candidate, several of their more questionable conversations have come back to haunt him throughout this campaign. Sam Stein of The Huffington Post seems to have taken a dive into the Trump archives, because now, the world’s getting a nice reminder of this gem that Trump said to Stern right before his 1997 wedding to Marla Maples, his second wife.
“Donald pulled me aside at his wedding,” Stern said in comments that had not resurfaced until now. “He said, you know I am getting remarried, but Howard, vagina is expensive. I will never forget those words. The guy is right. Those were the exact words!”
Trump was originally on the show that day to talk about the shopping mannerisms of his first wife, Ivana Trump. When Stern said what Trump had told him before the weding, Trump’s voice can be heard saying “that’s pretty close” to the exact words he’d said at the time, which is pretty close to an admission.
Trump’s polling with women has been a consistent problem for him throughout his campaign, his latest issue being the fallout from the time where he fat-shamed one of his Miss Universe winners.
