Things to Know About Karen McDougal


A former Playboy Playmate who grew up on the west side of MI says she had an affair with President Donald Trump more than a decade ago and at a time when the president was newly married with a young child at home. Karen detailed the alleged affair in an eight-page, handwritten note, which was given to the New Yorker by her friend, John Crawford. But Trump didn't let that stop him from flirting so heavily with McDougal that a Playboy executive reportedly said, "Wow, he was all over you - I think you could be his next wife".

During the Playboy party, which was thrown after an episode of The Apprentice was filmed there, Trump took an immediate liking to McDougal.

McDougal, who was Playmate of the Month in December 1997 and Playmate of the Year in 1998, says Trump kept telling her she was attractive and was really impressed by the reality TV star and real estate mogul. They had dinner, "talked for a couple hours - then, it was "ON"!"

"Trump, she said, always stayed in the same bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel and ordered the same meal - steak and mashed potatoes - and never drank", The New Yorker reported. The White House denies the story calling it "fake news", but Farrow stood by his piece to the panel, explaining his process of obtaining the story in detail. We got naked + had sex, ' she wrote. And a third porn star, Jessica Drake, said that Trump forcibly kissed her and two other women when they met him at his hotel room that same weekend.

"The underlying chronicle of the affair reveals a lot of important patterns that we're now seeing in the multiple accounts of either consensual affairs or alleged nonconsensual activity with Trump", Farrow said.

Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio visited the crime scene in Manhattan shortly after the explosion. The first bomb, which was in the area of 135 West 23rd Street, detonated and injured more than 30 individuals.

In one instance, when McDougal toured Trump Tower, she recalled a moment when Trump pointed out Melania's separate bedroom.

The article also cited a November 4, 2016, report by the Wall Street Journal, which claimed that American Media, Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, paid $150,000 to McDougal to acquire the rights to the story about the affair but never ran it. Jerry George, a former AMI senior editor, told the New Yorker that the company never published anything about Trump without his approval. She added that Trump said he had asked his son Eric "who he thought was the most attractive girl here + Eric pointed me".

Their affair lasted nine months ending in April 2007. A White House spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. The tabloid has published pro-Trump material in the past and the company is run by Trump friend David Pecker. "It took my rights away", McDougal told Farrow. The alleged affair began just months after Melania gave birth to Barron.
