Donald Trump’s philandering rivals Tiger Woods, who was caught bedding dozens of women in a 2009 sex scandal. Trump’s cheating was detailed by Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal in an eye-opening interview on CNN last night.
Among the revelations, McDougal said her affair with Trump began at a Lake Tahoe golf tournament in 2006. While Trump was professing his love for her, he also allegedly bedded porn star Stormy Daniels, and pestered her to set up a three-some.
McDougal, now 46 and still stunningly attractive, said she met Trump at the Playboy Mansion in 2006, during filming there of his show “Celebrity Apprentice.”
“Back in that day, I was a different girl. I had fun; I was in the Playboy scene. I was just enjoying life as much as I could,” she said.
Their affair lasted 10 months, during which Trump repeatedly professed his love for her, she told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“He would call me “baby,” or “baby Karen,” she said. He may have meant the latter term-of-affection literally. McDougal was young enough to be his daughter, a 25-year age difference.She often said Trump compared her to his daughter Ivanka.
The met a minimum of five times a month and had sex “many dozens of times,” she said.
Trump’s wife, Melania, now First Lady, had just given birth to son Barron, when he began the affair. McDougal said she felt sorry for her and her guilt eventually led her to end the relationship.
McDougal decision to tell-all clearly wasn’t a hit job, like right-wing commentator Leeann Tweeden’s take down of former Sen. Al Franken. McDdougal is a Republican and voted for Trump.
McDougal said she was surprised to learn that Trump had sex with Stormy Daniels at the same event in Lake Tahoe which she attended in July 2006. She surmised that he picked up with her after she left the event.
McDougal said she was shocked when Trump tried to pay her after having sex, suggesting he was regularly frequenting prostitutes and paying them for sex.
The White House has denied McDougal’s claims.
The former Playboy bunny is suing to get out of an agreement she signed in 2016 with American Media Inc., owner of The National Enquirer. She was paid $150,000 for her story that was subsequently spiked by the publication.
Woods’ sex scandal exploded over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2009 when then-wife, Swedish model, Elin Nordegren, found incriminating text messages on his phone from New York party girl Rachel Uchitel. As the scandal unfolded, more than a dozen women came forward to say they had sex with the golfer during his marriage.
