Trump ordered models to stand on his table so he could see if they were wearing underwear: report

Published

on

Republican candidate for president Donald Trump is racking up accusers of sexual assault, unwanted groping, sexual harassment and more. Two came forward in the New York Times, one came forward in People magazine and another in the Palm Beach Post. Thursday, another woman came forward to talk about Trump looking up models’ skirts in the Huffington Post.

Lisa Boyne is the latest in a growing line of women who are stepping forward. In the mid-1990s she worked as a food business entrepreneur and while at a restaurant she recalled the reality TV star and wannabe amateur OGBYN Trump parading women around in front of their table looking up their skirts to determine if they were wearing underwear.

“It was the most offensive scene I’ve ever been a part of,” Boyne told HuffPo. “I wanted to get the heck out of there.”

At a rally Thursday, Trump swore “these events never happened,” but the list of women lodging accusations is growing and the behavior oddly consistent.

Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks’s excuse, this time, is “Mr. Trump never heard of this woman and would never do that.”

HuffPo spoke to another woman who also attended the same event and confirmed that it took place but couldn’t remember if the events unfolded in that way. She did confirm that Boyne attended the event in the summer of 1996 and also verified that at some point women were climbing on tables.

At the time Boyne was friends with Sonja Morgan, who now is a cast member on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New York.” Morgan invited Boyne to dinner with Trump and late modeling agent John Casablancas. En route to the dinner Trump and Morgan picked Boyne up at her apartment and she describes Trump dominating the conversation and boasting about his sexual conquests and where they fell on his scale of attractiveness.

“He was constantly talking about himself, who he was dating, who he was sleeping with, who he was trying to sleep with,” Boyne said. “I just remember feeling very surprised and upset.”

Boyne described the event as an opportunity for Trump to meet young attractive women thanks to Casablancas bringing along half a dozen models. They were seated in a semi-circular table with the women in the middle and the men on each end, forcing the women to get past the men if they wanted to leave. According to Boyne, they refused to. Trump insisted they walk across the table instead, which gave him a look up their skirts.

Trump allegedly had zero interest in Boyne because she wasn’t a model. “He was more interested in my opinion of who I think he should sleep with. I remember that vividly,” she said.

She ultimately was able to get the man to let her leave the table, called her roommate, told the men she wasn’t feeling well and left.

Morgon also confirmed the dinner at the restaurant and that Casablancas brought several models, but she denied there were any lewd actions from Trump.

“I don’t remember any of that kind of behavior,” Morgan said. “But I have been known to dance on tables.”

Boyne’s roommate, Karen Beatrice denies she heard from Boyne that evening but didn’t deny the dinner took place. As a former model, Beatrice also met Trump, calling him “nothing but gracious and charming.”

Boyne was shocked Beatrice refused to confirm the incident, saying that the roommate was one of few she talked to about the event. She said that she’s been having “flashbacks” to the 1996 event since the New York Times story in May and the 2005 recordings.

“I met lots of famous, influential wealthy people with Sonja, and none of them were ever as vulgar, as disgusting, as rude, as sexist, such a low excuse for a human being that I’ve ever met. I was so deeply offended, I felt that like with Bill Cosby, the more people that come forward, the more legitimacy the story will have,” Boyne said.

“I find it hard to believe that he’s changed,” she added. “That was who he was. He was somebody who was interested in women as sex objects and their only merit was their beauty.”

Trump is ‘a bottomless pit of emotional need’ with a ‘desperate’ desire for friends: NYT’s Charles Blow

Published

on

The byproduct of narcissism is that everything surrounds the narcissist. Such is the case with President Donald Trump's latest series of tweets talking about "My Stock Market" and quoting a fan referring to him as the second coming of Christ.

‘Disconnected from reality’: NY Times editor ridicules Trump for being a ‘farce’ of a president

Published

on

New York Times editorial board member, Michelle Cottle, released a scathing op-ed highlighting the president's tendency to give oxygen to his adversaries that no one else would be paying attention to otherwise.

In a piece relating the White House to a "three-ring" circus, Cottle called the president a "farce" for his new war with Anthony Scaramucci.

As the president tweeted, no one had heard of Scaramucci until Trump hired him and former chief-of-staff John Kelly fired him after only 11 days.

Published

President Donald Trump has an early morning meeting Monday with Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi. He also has a full day of meeting with the G-7, but that wasn't his focus in the early morning hours.

"My Stock Market gains must be judged from the day after the Election (sic), November 9, 2016, where the Market went up big after the win, and because of the win. Had my opponent won, CRASH!" Trump tweeted Sunday night in the U.S., which was nearly 2 a.m. in France where the president is staying during the G-7 summit.

My Stock Market gains must be judged from the day after the Election, November 9, 2016, where the Market went up big after the win, and because of the win. Had my opponent won, CRASH!
