Five years before the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which Donald Trump bragged about grabbing women by the genitals, the real estate mogul boasted to a magazine writer, “there is nothing in the world like first-rate p*ssy,” the Daily Beast reports.
According to journalist Michael Corcoran—who was, at the time, writing a profile on Trump for the now-defunct Maximum Golf Magazine—the president was at his Mar-a-Lago club when he described a “young socialite” in terms of her genitals.
The Beast reports that Trump’s comment never made it to print, as an editor at the magazine refused to publish the real estate mogul’s remark.
Former Maximum Golf editor Joe Bargmann, who worked with Corcoran, confirmed the reporter’s account, noting a higher-up nixed Trump’s comment.
“I was asked to change the last word of the story from ‘p*ssy.’ When I refused, my top editor changed the quote,” Bargmann said.
The report comes as Trump in recent days has reportedly expressed doubt over the veracity of that Access Hollywood tape. Sources in the White House have told reporters the president has begun to claim it was not him on the recording (during which Trump can clearly be heard saying women will let you “grab ‘em by the p*ssy” when you’re famous).
Last October, when the tape was first released, Trump himself verified its authenticity, apologizing for his “locker room talk.”
As the Beast reports, these are hardly the only instances Trump has used derogatory language to describe female’s genitals. In January, Tucker Carlson wrote about the president hitting back at the Fox News host for making fun of Trump’s hair.
“But I get more p*ssy than you do,” Carlson recalls Trump saying.
