Yesterday, Donald Trump was accused of having a consensual affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels while his wife Melania was pregnant. This comes after twenty-plus other women have accused Trump of very much nonconsensual sexual assault. Trump has of course bragged about assaulting women on the Access Hollywood tape. But now everyone wants to know whether Trump’s “Pee Pee Tape” involving Russian prostitutes and urination is real. It turns out Trump and his associate have already provided a hint about it.
Seventeen years ago, Donald Trump and an acquaintance named A.J. Benza had a conversation with each other on the Howard Stern show about the women in Russia, dug up by Addicting Info (link). Out of nowhere and with no prior context, Benza claimed that Trump “bangs Russian people.” Trump retorted: “Who are you talking about, Russian people, A.J.? I don’t know anything.” But then came Benza’s money quote.
Benza said the following about Donald Trump while sitting next to him: “He used to call me when I was a columnist and say, ‘I was just in Russia, the girls have no morals, you gotta get out there.’ He’s out of his mind.” And although Trump had been playing along a moment earlier, he suddenly had no response or retort to Benza’s specific claim.
It appeared that Benza’s last remark had simply hit too close to home, suggesting Trump was indeed hearing his own embarrassing words quoted back to him. It also means that as far back as sixteen years ago, Trump’s associates knew he liked going to Russia for the women.
