New Donald Trump ‘Playboy’ Videos: Can His Campaign Handle The Latest Trump Sex Tape Scandal?

As reported by ABC News, even more Donald Trump Playboy videos surfaced yesterday, causing additional headaches for Trump’s beleaguered campaign staff as they struggle to keep up with his weekly embarrassing disasters. Just as the Republican nominee was hoping to get a boost from the upcoming second presidential debate, his handlers now have to deal with yet another trademark Trumpian scandal.

According to CNN, in these videos Trump is seen talking to, interacting with, and photographing the adult film actresses. Later in the film, the women in question are entirely nude and caressing one another in the way one would expect in an adult film. Trump at one point sits down and speaks to one of the women in the video.

“Well I think you have what it takes too… And I think everyone in this room thinks you have what it takes also.”

The nature of these additional Playboysoftcore adult videos from the mid-1990s is quite similar to the one revealed earlier from 1999 starring Hugh Hefner favorites, the Bernaola Twins. While the “stars” of these adult videos have changed, the content of the films and Donald Trump’s participation in them is essentially the same. Thankfully, Trump keeps his clothes on in the ones we’ve seen so far.

Even though Mike Pence’s performance at the vice presidential debate was adequate at best, it was still better than Trump’s showing during his first presidential debate. So the Trump campaign was hoping to build on this for their upcoming confrontation with Hillary Clinton, but ongoing salacious scandals about Donald Trump’s obsession with Playboy bunnies in the 1990s doesn’t help their effort.

One might think that the Trump didn’t avoid associating himself with adult films because he hadn’t anticipated a future in politics. But these Donald Trump Playboy videos can’t be explained so easily since Trump was already considering a run for the presidency at the head of the Reform Party when he was interacting with the cast of these sex tapes.

Instead, the presence of these videos shows the incredible lack of judgment – and good taste – to be found in Donald Trump. The question for voters is whether they want someone in the White House who’s been in softcore adult videos they wouldn’t want to watch with their children present in the room.

Trump doesn’t hesitate to make clear his disdainful opinion of women and that he views them from an entirely physical perspective. This never-ending stream of Donald Trump Playboy videos only adds more evidence to support this. Plus, there’s no reason to think that more videos aren’t waiting to be found.

The fact that Trump apparently even coerced his second wife, Marla Maples, to appear in a Playboy centerfold layout reinforces the growing belief that Trump views women as nothing more than sexual objects. Having no problem with the objectification of women in adult videos is hardly surprising in a narcissistic personality – as Trump clearly seems to be – since he appears to be entirely focused on himself.

So once again, the Trump campaign staff – ironically headed by a woman – has to defend adult videos that exploit women. These are things that Republicans would find inexcusable in any Democratic candidates and would certainly be attacking them for.

But it seems that the fundamentalist and evangelical movements backing the Republican party are willing to throw away their ethical beliefs in order to support Donald Trump, a man whose every action and statement seem at odds with their stated moral convictions. The eagerness of the Republican Party establishment – and Republican voters as a whole – to continue supporting the Republican nominee after the release of further Donald Trump Playboy videos places a stain on the entire party.
