Playboy editor claims Trump forced Maples to pose: ‘He wanted her to do the nude layout. She didn’t’

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his campaign have spent the week slut-shaming former Miss Universe Alicia Machado saying that she posed in Playboy and that there was a sex tape depicting her in it (there is not). An old New York Daily News article has surfaced that tells a story of Trump pressuring his future wife, against her will, to pose for Playboy magazine. Trump personally negotiated the fee, according to the report.

The article, tweeted by historian and Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois Jeff Nichols, ABD, outlines how Trump insisted that Maples do the centerfold and negotiated a million dollar check to compensate her for so doing.

“‘Donald doesn’t want Marla to look like she’s against Ivana,’ Says Trump’s PR guru, Chuck Jones. ‘Donald wants picture approval. Donald says to emphasize her early years,'” the article reads.

It continues talking about how much Maples didn’t want to do the nude layout, fearing people would only see her as a pretty face, not a serious woman.

“‘Trump himself was on the phone negotiating the fee,’ remembers a top Playboy editor. ‘He wanted her to do the nude layout. She didn’t.’ (‘I’m thankful for my body, but I didn’t want to exploit it,’ Marla offers. ‘How would I ever be taken seriously?’)” The story continues.

Jones then described Maples as someone who is more than Trump’s mistress. ”Marla,” Jones says, ‘came along and fulfilled perfectly what Donald really needed. When two people plan a future together, she is not a mistress,'” the story outlines.

In a New York Times interview Friday, Trump somewhat denied ever having an affair, saying, “No — I never discuss it. I never discuss it. It was never a problem.”

Though, ironically, in a 2015 CNN interview, Trump admitted his infidelity by saying that it would be fair game to be attacked with.

Published

on

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is conducting a criminal investigation of possible money laundering violations by Deutsche Bank, and the New York Times is reporting that the probe will include taking a look at some 2016 transactions involving Kushner Cos. — the business owned by the family of Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law.

In banking, reports of possibly suspicious activity are known as “suspicious activity reports,” and the DOJ is investigating why Deutsche Bank prepared such alerts for activity involving Kushner Cos. but did not file them. A key figure in the DOJ’s investigation is whistleblower Tammy McFadden, who helped prepare suspicious activity reports for Kushner Cos.-related transactions. McFadden is a former compliance officer for Deutsche Bank.

‘Come heavily armed’: Oregon GOP lawmaker threatens state troopers over dispute with Dem governor

Published

on

On Wednesday, The Oregonian reported that GOP state Sen. Brian Boquist threatened to kill state troopers if they try to keep him in the Senate chamber to debate climate change legislation.

"I'm quotable, so here's the quote. This is what I told the [police] superintendent," said Boquist to reporters outside the Senate chamber. "Send bachelors and come heavily armed. I'm not going to be a political prisoner in the state of Oregon. It's just that simple."

Democratic Gov. Kate Brown has made passing a climate change bill one of her top priorities. While Democrats control Oregon's legislature, Senate Republicans have enough votes to block legislation by walking out and denying a quorum — which they have done to stonewall this legislation.
