'How come the deeply troubled women are always the best in bed?' - Donald Trump speculates about sex with Lindsay Lohan in resurfaced 2004 interview
A 2004 recording of the presidential candidate Donald Trump making lewd and derogatory comments about Lindsay Lohan, including speculating about what sex with her would be like, has resurfaced.
On Friday, CNN published an audio of an interview with the Republican candidate and radio host Howard Stern where the pair discussed the then 18-year-old actress.
Stern began by saying: “I bet you trade in this Melania for Lindsay Lohan.”
Mr Trump is then heard asking: “What do you think of Lindsay Lohan?”
“I think she’s hot,” replied Stern.
“There’s something there,” Mr Trump said, “But you have to like freckles. I’ve seen a close up of her chest and a lot of freckles. Are you into freckles?”
The pair then discussed Lohan’s appearance, name and her relationship with her father, before Stern asked: “Can you imagine the sex with this troubled teen?”
“Yeah, you’re probably right,” the real-estate mogul replied. “She’s probably deeply troubled and therefore great in bed. How come the deeply troubled women, you know, deeply, deeply troubled, they’re always the best in bed?”
In response to the recordings, Lohan’s manager told CNN: “Right now, Lindsay is choosing to focus on the positive things happening in her life and has decided to disregard the comments made about her by the Presidential nominee Donald Trump. She is focusing on helping children around the world in need and that’s where her passion is.”
Lohan has been visiting refugee camps in Turkey and has documented her visits and raised the plight of children trapped in the midst of the Syrian civil war on social media.
The re-emergence of this interview follows the release of a previously unheard audio of him making lewd comments about women including a boast that he could use his fame to “grab [women] by the p***y”, which resulted in a string of senior Republicans denouncing his comments and reversing their endorsement of the candidate. Mr Trump has apologised for the comments but also dismissed them as “locker room talk”.
In the week since the tape was aired, over a dozen women have come forward with allegations Mr Trump sexually harassed or assaulted them. Mr Trump vehemently denies all the claims and at a rally in North Carolina yesterday said: “They are all false, all completely invented, fiction, all 100% totally and completely fabricated.”
Representatives for Mr Trump, Stern and Lohan did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
