Donald Trump Compared Stormy Daniels To Ivanka After Spanking Him During Their Affair
In her 60 Minutes interview, 39-year-old adult film star Stormy Daniels — whose real name is Stephanie Clifford — said that President Donald Trump once told her she reminded him of his daughter Ivanka.
Clifford met Trump in July 2006 at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. He invited her to go to dinner, and Clifford told 60 Minutes’ Anderson Cooper that when she met him in his hotel suite, he began talking about himself and showed her a magazine that featured him on the front cover.
She told him off, asking if that tactic worked on other girls, and she joked that someone should spank him with the magazine. Clifford said she then instructed Trump to take his pants off, and she swatted him with the magazine.
“From that moment on, he was a completely different person,”Clifford said. “He quit talking about himself, and he asked me things and I asked him things and it just became, you know, more appropriate.”
Trump then allegedly compared Clifford to Ivanka while complimenting her.
“He was like, ‘Wow, you are special. You remind me of my daughter,’” Clifford told Cooper. “He’s like, ‘You’re smart and beautiful and a woman to be reckoned with. I like you, I like you.’”
This is not the first instance of Trump making claims about Ivanka that seem outside the appropriate realm of a father-daughter relationship, and Vice’s Desus & Mero show broke down Trump’s history of making questionable statements after the 60 Minutes interview aired.
Former Playmate Karen McDougal, who is suing Trump for her right to speak about their affair, told Cooper on CNN that during their affair, he compared her beauty to Ivanka’s. McDougal also said she “heard a lot” about Ivanka.
During a 2004 interview with Howard Stern, Stern referred to Ivanka as “a piece of ass,” to which Trump responded, “My daughter, Ivanka — she’s six feet tall. She’s got the best body.”
In 2006, while appearing on The View with Ivanka, Trump said, “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
