When Donald and Ivana Trump divorced a huge cache of photographs were sold to a collector. The photos– which have been given a second life due to the Trump Presidency– are now providing a rare glimpse of the human, personal side of Trump, a side that his enemies all too often forget exists. Donald Trump recently commented on some of the individual photographs for a profile in Esquire, and here are some excerpts:
What a beautiful couple we were. Really, you could have put us on an album cover. That album? It would have sold millions and millions and millions of copies. Best selling album in history. Captain and Tennille? Forget about ’em. We would have blown them out of the water. Losers.
That thing Ivana is wearing on her head?
Not a swim cap.
Very European. Very classy. VERY expensive.
What do you think the thread count is on those sheets? 500? 800? Maybe 1000?
That’s right, 1200.
The finest in the world.
Ivanka is such a beautiful woman. So very talented. Have you seen her ski? Amazing. Could have been an Olympian if she wanted. But the truth is that she was never very good at art. Always used to hire other kids to do her drawings in school. This one was done by some Chinese. Ivanka, such a smart businesswoman. Her IQ might even be as high as mine. Such an improvement on her mother.
I was asked to do Playgirl. Many, many times. So many times I can’t even count. And the amount of money they offered me? You would not believe. The most ever. It was like the same amount they would have paid Jesus. Never did it, though. Didn’t like the idea of fruits getting off on me. Just disgusting, that. Anyway fruits, I guess today is your lucky day.
I get people to shave my chest now.
Bannon took me to that party a few years ago.
So much quality ass.
The ladies there had the best skin in the world. They were just as smooth as a bunch of billiard balls. Probably all used French moisturizers. I had sex with many, many of the girls that night– some with the masks, some without. It was hard work to stay hydrated.
Met Jamie Lee Curtis at a Planet Hollywood back in the 80’s.
Went on a date with her. Very uneventful, but let me tell you, those rumours of her having, you know, both sexes? Not true. All woman.
This is a more recent photo. Here I’m just roaming the White House late at night exploring. The place is really third rate. Desperately needs an update. If it was a contestant in a beauty contest? Boob, nose, eye job and liposuction just for starters. Reminds me. Walked in on one of the cleaning ladies changing the other day. You can do that when you’re President.
You think Obama didn’t?
