Donald Trump Caught On Tape Saying Model ‘Looks Like A Third-Rate Hooker’

Donald Trump Caught On Tape Saying Model "Looks Like A Third Rate Hooker"

Just days after Donald Trump was heavily criticized by the New York Times in an editorial detailing his previous relationships, the presumptive Republican nominee finds himself in hot water yet again over his controversial statements about women – in particular one woman who Trump allegedly dated back in 2004.

An audio recording of Donald Trump laying into a journalist for Stepping Out magazine has surfaced, reports Mediaite. Trump called up Chaunce Hayden of Stepping Out after the magazine published an interview with Victoria Zdrok, a model who alleges that her employers at Playboy set up a meeting with her and Trump after he claimed he needed a model to promote an upcoming casino.

According to Zdrok, Trump only wanted to meet with her in order to date her, a claim that Trump flatly denies. Zdrok spoke with Stepping Out magazine and detailed the dates she and Trump allegedly went on.

“He’s really arrogant. He’s really into himself! On a date all he does is talk about himself. He loves himself! The first thing he says to me on our date is that he’s taller and better looking than what he looks like in pictures. He said ‘People don’t realize how handsome I am.’ I’ve never met a more narcissistic person than Donald,” said model Victoria Zdrok, reports Mediaite.

Shortly after the interview was published, Donald Trump contacted Chaunce Hayden of Stepping Out, claiming that Zdrok’s allegations were false – that Trump himself would never date her because she’s not attractive enough. Trump goes on to detail the ways in which he finds her unattractive, all of which were caught on tape.

“[She] looks like a f***ing third-rate hooker. Gimme a break. I never took her out. She’s full of s**t. Chaunce, look, I have good taste in women. Take a look at her picture. It’s all bulls**t. I never took her out. I never took her out and based on that picture I would never take her out. She’s not even attractive, she’s not a good-looking girl. Who the hell wants a Penthouse pet? Penthouse is gone, it’s bankrupt, it’s over,” said Donald Trump, speaking with a journalist for Stepping Out.

Donald Trump’s treatment of women, and the language he uses to describe women, has caused no end of trouble for the presumptive Republican nominee. Just this weekend, audio recordings of a “John Miller” surfaced, in which Donald Trump bragged about the women he dated – though he did so while pretending to be someone else. Trump later denied that it was him on the phone, despite admitting to it under oath back in the ’90s.

Just this week, the New York Times criticized Trump in a lengthy editorial piece which alleges that the New York billionaire has spoken to female employees inappropriately in the past, and has at times made them uncomfortable. For his part, Trump flatly denies these claims, and has called the New York Times article a “hit piece” and a “fraud.”

“You feel just like a piece of jewelry when you’re with him. For him it’s all about looks, appearances and signing autographs. He just loves it,” said Victoria Zdrok in her interview with Stepping Out.

Early on in the Republican presidential primary, an anti-Trump super PAC ran ads against the now-presumptive nominee, in which actresses repeated things Donald Trump had said about women, illustrating the inflammatory and at times degrading language used by the boisterous billionaire.

According to the Daily Beast, Zdrok also alleged that Donald Trump broke off an earlier relationship with a different model, due to the fact that she was half-black.

“He told me he really likes this girl, but he would never go out with her because he found out she was half-black and that would be bad for his reputation. I thought that was very racist,” said Victoria Zdrok.
