Turns out Donald Trump was a regular in Playboy soft core videos: CNN
It was only last week, when Donald Trump was slut-shaming former Miss Universe Alica Machado on Twitter over a non-existent “sex tape,” that it was revealed that it was actually Trump who appeared in a soft core video for Playboy.
According to CNN, Trump’s appearance in the 2000 video wasn’t a one-off cameo, with the GOP presidential nominee showing up in two other Playboy videos, including one where he films a model — with her clothes on.
In a 1994 VHS tape titled “Playboy Centerfold,” uncovered by CNN’s KFILE investigative group, Trump lends a hand by taking pictures and asking question of models seeking to become the magazine’s 40th anniversary Playmate.
While no one — including Trump — is thankfully nude in his scenes, there is plenty of nudity elsewhere on the video.
According to Jeff Cohen, a senior photo editor for Playboy who was at the event, he said that the magazine was shooting in New York and used Trump for the publicity he would bring.
“We sat around and decided, ‘Let’s launch the search in New York City,'” Cohen said in an interview. “Obviously, the media capital. We’ll get a lot of press, we’ll get TV, we’ll get radio. What’s the best way to do that? Aha, I know, we’re gonna ask Donald Trump whether he would come and photograph, do the test pictures, of the first girl that comes in.’ And that’s basically what we did.”
Trump also appeared in another Playboy video in 2001, accompanied by his then-girlfriend and now-wife Melania backstage at a fashion show Playboy did with designer Betsey Johnson.
According to the KFILE, the GOP presidential nominee remained clothed in that video too.
