In light of porn star Stormy Daniels’ allegations last week that she was paid $130,000 to not disclose information about a 2006 liason with Donald Trump in Nevada, while Melania was pregnant with Barron, stories about that time are either coming to light or being repeated, including the story about Trump fat shaming Melania into getting her body back. Vanity Fair:
About six months after they married, she became pregnant with Barron—and things changed, according to one source. She was 35—“checkout time” for women, as Trump once told Howard Stern-and no longer the dewy fox he’d met seven years earlier. A visitor to one of Trump’s homes, late into Melania’s pregnancy, recalls him remarking that he agreed to the baby on the condition that Melania would get her body back. “She promised him that everything would go back to the way it was,” says this guest; it struck this person as a “contract.” And he was simply rude to her. “There was no ‘How do you feel?’ No opening of doors, making sure she didn’t fall. Just ‘You wanted to have a baby.’ ” (Grisham counters that Mr. Trump was “very warm and supportive throughout her pregnancy.”
As Donald’s celebrity ballooned with The Apprentice, Melania was asked to tolerate even more. His public interchanges with Howard Stern, which provided a kind of Greek chorus to their relationship, went from lewdly objectifying to grotesque. He agreed with Stern that his daughter Ivanka was “a piece of ass.” He joked that if Melania were in a horrible, mangling car crash he’d still love her as long as the breasts remained intact. When asked by Stern whether he’d be up for “banging 24-year-olds,” Trump eagerly assented. Subsequent accusations suggest similar improprieties.
Trump’s grotesque and objectifying comments continued, as Trump alluded to Melania’s pregnancy.
Donald seems to agree, albeit disparagingly. As he puts it during an appearance on the Howard Stern Show in 2005, “You know, they just blow up, right? Like a blimp – in the right places. In her case, the right places. I mean she really has become a monster – in all the right places. I mean monster in the most positive way. She has gotten very, very large – in all the right places.”
It also surfaces during Donald’s 2016 presidential campaign that around this time, Donald tells Billy Bush of Access Hollywood that he feels free to assault women with impunity and that he once made a move on Nancy O’Dell. Melania releases a statement after the videotape leaks, saying, “The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know.”
Trump is not a real man, who understands all the aspects of womanhood, motherhood certainly being a crucial passage in life. He is fixated in adolescence and all he wants is to have an arm trophy. If we’ve ever had anybody as shallow and immature as Trump in the Oval Office, history has not yet brought it to light.
