Donald Trump's cameo in softcore pornography movie unearthed
Donald Trump made a cameo appearance in a 2000 Playboy video, posing – fully clothed – with a group of models and pouring champagne over a limo.
“Beauty is beauty, and let’s see what happens with New York,” Mr Trump says in the film Playboy Video Centerfold.
The film, obtained by Buzzfeed, featured Peruvian twins Darlene and Carol travelling across the US, and welcomed to New York by Mr Trump.
Other scenes from the film feature naked women posing in sexual positions, dancing naked, touching themselves while naked, touching each other sensually, rubbing honey on themselves, taking a bath, and dressing in costumes.
The VHS cover of the video reads: “From luxuriating in a warm, soapy tub, to revelling at an exclusive night club, Carol and Darlene bare their sex appeal and lead you on a sensual journey of discovery.”
The presidential candidate has spent this week attacking Alicia Machado, a former Miss Universe, who has spoken out about how Mr Trump treated her in the late 1990s. He said she was “disgusting” and spoke of her “sex tape” — a grainy night-vision video of her having sex while appearing on a reality show.
No sex tape has emerged, but right-wing websites earlier this week reported that Miss Machado appeared in a number of online porn videos. The videos inaccurately listed under her name on porn sites around the web do not feature the former beauty queen.
He has also previously been happy to describe Paris Hilton’s sex tape as having made her “hotter,” and called on Carrie Prejean, a Miss Universe contestant, to release hers, in which no one else appeared and she had sent when she was 17 years old to her boyfriend.
But Mr Trump does not appear to be embarrassed by the Playboy film, with it being listed on his IMDB page.
In 2004 he told Playboy: “I’ve always said, ‘If you need Viagra, you’re probably with the wrong girl.’”
Yet in an effort to cultivate conservative voters, in August he signed a pledge promising to crack down on pornography if elected.
