Donald Trump also hooked up with a Playboy Playmate during that wild Lake Tahoe weekend
In a new report for the New Yorker, Ronan Farrow details Donald Trump’s alleged affair with former Playboy Playmate of the Year Karen McDougal and reveals, among other things, that McDougal and the future president had sex during a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in July 2006.
This would be would be the same Lake Tahoe weekend that, according to other reports, Trump also began his alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels, allegedly tried to entice another adult film star, Alana Evans, into a threesome and allegedly tried to force his attentions on a third, Jessica Drake.
In Farrow’s story, published Friday, he reports that the then-reality TV star also liked to share articles with McDougal about him and his daughter Ivanka Trump. Moreover, Trump reportedly introduced McDougal to members of his family and showed the aspiring actress wife Melania Trump’s separate bedroom during a private tour of his penthouse in Trump Tower.
Trump and McDougal met at a pool party at the Playboy Mansion in June 2006 when Trump was taping an episode of “The Apprentice,” Farrow reported.
At the time, Trump and his third wife Melania Trump had been married for a little over a year. She had also given birth to their son Barron several months earlier.
But during this holiday at Playboy Mansion, Trump “seemed uninhibited by his new family obligations,” writes Farrow. In an eight-page letter written by McDougal, which was shared with Farrow, she said that Trump immediately took a liking to her.
The slender brunette, who had been the magazine’s Playmate of the Year in 2001, said in her letter that Trump’s interest in her was so obvious that “a director of Playmate Promotions said, ‘Wow, he was everywhere – I think you could be his next wife. “
A White House spokesman said in a statement to Farrow that Trump denies having an affair with McDougal: “It’s an old story that’s just more fake news.” The president says he never had a relationship with McDougal. “
But Farrow’s story also focuses on how Trump relied on high-ranking friends to help him keep his alleged infidelities out of the media. These infidelities included several cases he was conducting simultaneously, said Farrow.
It’s been widely reported, first by the Wall Street Journal in January, that Daniels signed a nondisclosure agreement with Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen and received a $130,000 payment just before the 2016 election. Under this agreement, Daniels was to allegedly keep quiet about her year-long relationship with Trump. According to what Daniels had already told friends and several journalists, this alleged relationship started when they met at the annual American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at the Edgewood Tahoe Resort.

More recently, representatives for Daniels said that she’s now free to tell her story given that Cohen disclosed to the New York Times this week that he had paid that $130,000 out of his own pocket.
Sources close to Daniels also told the website The Blast that she has the gold mini dress she wore during her alleged tryst with Trump that weekend. She reportedly plans to have it forensically tested to see if there is anything on the dress that would contain Trump’s DNA and thereby prove her version of events.
In terms of Trump’s alleged affair with McDougal, the president also was able to rely on help from David Pecker, the CEO and chairman of American Media, Inc., which publishes the National Enquirer, according to a Wall Street Journal story that came out just before 2016 election.
Pecker has described Trump as “a personal friend,” added Farrow, while other media observers have noted that the Enquirer tends to provide favorable coverage of the president and his family. The Enquirer claimed in the Wall Street Journal story that the $150,000 was for McDougal to write regular fitness columns, but Farrow said that it’s common practice in the tabloid industry to purchase someone’s story in order to bury it — a practice called “catch and kill.”
This is apparently what happened with McDougal’s story. And on the basis of his agreement with A.M.I. McDougal refused to discuss details of his alleged relationship with Trump in an interview with Farrow.
However, McDougal documented his alleged affair with Trump in the eight-page handwritten letter, which a friend shared with Farrow. More details of the letter include:
– After their meeting at Playboy Manor, McDougal’s first date with Trump was in a private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where they talked for a few hours and “then it was” ON “! We were naked + had sex. “McDougal also said that Trump offered her money, which she refused.
– McDougal said they continued to see them every time he was in Los Angeles. McDougal also met with members of the Trump family. These meetings included a launch party in January 2007 for Trump Vodka, Trump’s now-defunct liquor brand. She said she was sitting at a table with Kim Kardashian, Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Trump Jr. Vanessa’s pregnant wife. At an evening organized by Trump for “The Apprentice” at Playboy Mansion, McDougal, dressed like a Playboy bunny, posed for photos with Trump and his family, and Eric Trump would have said she was “the most beautiful girl “.
– Accompanying Trump on visits to his Bedminster Golf Club, New Jersey and Trump Tower, Trump showed Melania Trump’s separate bedroom in Trump Tower. He said his wife “loved her space to read or be alone.”
– With regard to the 2006 Lake Tahoe Golf Tournament, McDougal said that she had accompanied him there and had made love this weekend. She also remembered how they were sitting in a booth at a party with Drew Brees, the New Orleans Saints quarterback, and that Trump had warned him to stay away from Tiger Woods.
It’s been previously reported by The Smoking Gun and other sites that Trump met porn stars Daniels and Drake in a VIP gifting suite at the Edgewood Resort. The two actresses, from the studio Wicked Pictures, were there hosting a booth to promote their slate of X-rated projects.
In a 2011 interview with In Touch Weekly, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said she joined Trump in his hotel suite for dinner and the two had what she called “textbook generic” sex. Daniels also recalled asking about his marriage, to which Trump allegedly replied, “Oh, don’t worry about (Melania).”
Alana Evans claimed in an interview with The Daily Beast that she also was in Lake Tahoe that weekend and ran into her close friend Daniels. One night, she said, Daniels and Trump called her hotel room and invited her to join them in a threesome. She declined.
Meanwhile, Drake didn’t have such a good experience with Trump that weekend. In fact, in the month before the 2016 election, Drake became the 14th woman to accuse the then-Republican presidential nominee of sexual misconduct.
During a news conference with her attorney Gloria Allred, Drake said that Trump flirted with her as she was working the Wicked Pictures booth, according to the Daily Beast. He later invited her to his room. She said she took along two other women, and Trump greeted them in his pajamas.

“When we entered the room, he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission,” Drake continued at the news conference. He then asked detailed questions about her job as an adult-film star and about her personal relationships before the women left. Drake said Trump later called her to offer her $10,000 for sex.
Drake, a certified sex educator who has been outspoken on her views on national politics, consent and feminism, said at the news conference that she didn’t believe this was “acceptable behavior for anyone, much less a presidential candidate.” She also called Trump a “sexual assault apologist.”
