Bob Woodward‘s explosive upcoming book on the White House includes a stunning anecdote about President Donald Trump referring to Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a “dumb southerner” and “mentally retarded.” Trump vehemently denied Woodward’s reporting, claiming he has “never used those terms on anyone.” Mediaite previously noted that Trump has called people “mentally retarded” on tape. Now, a new report claims Trump used the term “dumb southerner” as well. The New York Times reports that Trump used “dumb southerner” in 1997, back when he spoke frequently to Jeane MacIntosh, then deputy editor of Page Six. MacIntosh contacted Trump for a story she was working on about some purchases by his ex-wife Marla Maples, and Trump ended up dishing to MacIntosh about his upcoming divorce. From the Times:
He said, ‘I have something better for you,’ ” Ms. MacIntosh recalled in an interview on Wednesday. Continue reading "Trump Reportedly Called Ex-Wife’s Family ‘Dumb Southerners’, Despite Claiming He Never Used Term"

Due to her feeling disgusted by what she sees as “entitled behavior,” hairstylist Tricia Kelly spoke to the Washington Post about an offer made by President-elect Donald Trump’s second wife to get free hair and makeup services for Inauguration Day. Kelly explained that she was contacted by a client of hers about an offer to style the hair of both Marla Maples and her daughter Tiffany Trump for the event. When she provided her fee, which was $150 travel plus the cost of the styling, Maples’ assistant countered that the hair and makeup budget for both women was $300. The stylist was able to come to an agreement with Maples that she would be paid $200 for her work and a makeup artist would get $150. However, the assistant then came back and ask if both artists would be willing to work for free in exchange for Maples mentioning her Continue reading "Stylist Claims Marla Maples Tried to Get Free Inauguration Day Services in Exchange for ‘Exposure’"
As the 2016 election came to a draw Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump effusively praised his children… well, most of them. “I’m very proud of my children…” Trump said on Fox & Friends Tuesday. “I’m very proud, because Don and Eric and Ivanka and– you know, to a lesser extent because she just got out of school, out of college, but, uh, Tiffany, who has also been so terrific,” he said. “They work so hard.”The long-suffering Tiffany Trump, the only child of Donald and his then-mistress Marla Maples, has made far less public appearances than the other adult Trump children during the campaign, leading some to term her the “other daughter” or Trump’s “mystery daughter.” Trump has also notably shied away from heaping complements on her the way he does his other children (especially Ivanka). Watch via, Fox News. Continue reading "Donald Trump Says He’s Proud of His Daughter Tiffany ‘To a Lesser Extent’"
Much of the scuttlebutt around Melania Trump’s much-anticipated speech earlier today was around her ironically decrying cyberbullying. Obviously, Twitter had a field day with that, considering her husband’s social media habits. However, it also appears that Mrs. Trump called back to another famous speech she gave. As you may recall, Melania got into a whole bunch of hot water this summer when it was discovered that she had lifted whole portions of her at first well-received RNC address from Michelle Obama. Well, this time around, it looks like she stole from another well-known woman.
Yair Rosenberg highlighted how another Twitter user — who initially realized Melania lifted the phrase from Marla — knew for certain that

Digging through the archives of the New York Post, The Daily Beast uncovered an interview with current Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump where he detailed his belief that adultery is not a sin. Since the Post doesn’t have any of its archives prior to 1998 available to the public, the Beast had to obtain actual paper copies of older issues. In a February 23rd, 1990 interview, the real estate mogul discussed his views on marriage while also indicating that he was having an affair with Marla Maples at the time.
“Do you think adultery is a sin?” Trump was asked in the February issue. “Very good question,” he responded. According to the report at the time, Trump paused and then said: “I don’t think it’s a sin but I don’t think it should be done.” The reporters pressed: “Would you do it?” After which, Trump coyly Continue reading "‘I Don’t Think It’s A Sin’: Trump Had an Interesting Take On Adultery In 1990"
