For years Donald Trump prided himself in being a playboy who boasted about his sexual promiscuity. His wealth and business power provided him ample opportunity to exploit human beings in some of the most depraved ways in both his business and personal life.
We’ve known this. However, we now know more. And it’s disturbing.
Michael Gross has written for New York Times, New York Magazine, Esquire, GQ, Vanity Fair, and Town & Country. He has also published several New York Times bestsellers. And now, he has published a bombshell piece about Trump’s sexual indiscretions.
Gross, who also writes for The Daily Beast, spoke with two men who say they attended parties hosted by Donald Trump at the Plaza Hotel. Trump owned the hotel and these parties were places “where young women and girls were introduced to older, richer men.”
And, what comes next sounds like it was ripped from the headlines for the next Law & Order: Special Victims Unit script.
“But both men also put Donald Trump in the room with cocaine, very young women and underage girls, and rich, old men there to—pardon my language, but if the Times can say pussy on its front page, I can say this—fuck them.”
A fashion photographer, who requested anonymity, spoke to Gross saying there were girls attending these parties as young as 15 who were “over their heads, they had no idea, and they ended up in situations. There were always dramas because the men threw money and drugs at them to keep them enticed. It’s based on power and dominating girls who can’t push back and can be discarded. There’s always someone to pick them back up. No body wants to call home and say ‘Help me.'”
“[Trump would] go from room to room. I was there to party myself. It was guys with younger girls, sex, a lot of sex, a lot of cocaine, top shelf liquor. . .They exchanged information, facilitated each other. Trump was in and out. He’d wander off with a couple girls. I saw him. He was getting laid like crazy. Trump was at the heart of it. He loved the attention and in private, he was a total fucking beast.”
The second man Gross spoke to is Andy Lucchesi, who also works in the industry as a male model. He admits he often sought out models for Trump’s parties and added that he thought Trump’s motives were to start his own modeling agency – for which he actually did.
Lucchesi said he didn’t want to get Trump in trouble and actually likes and respects Trump. This is telling, considering his answer when asked about the girls ages:
“A lot of girls, 14, look 24. That’s as juicy as I can get. I never asked how old they were; I just partook. I did partake in activities that would be controversial, too.”
That’s right. No big deal. The girls may have just looked older and rich old men shouldn’t be bothered to ask something as insignificant as age before sticking their penises in someone… are you kidding me?
I can’t help but wonder how the Republican party went from fearing “The Gays” and saying their sinful marriages were going to destroy America’s families to supporting a man who hosted parties where old rich men could bang young, underage models – as long as they plied them with plenty of drugs.
But not only did Trump host those parties, he went on to brag about his sexual prowess.
Gross writes, “Trump told me that consequence-free promiscuity was then his ‘second business.'”
And, then Trump alleged that his marriage settled him, although I think many of the women who have been groped by Donald Trump, or his ex-wives and the mistresses for whom he cheated on them with, may find this statement debatable.
“If I hadn’t got married, who knows what would have happened? You had drugs, women and booze all over the fuckin’ place.”
It’s one (deplorable) thing to brag about abusing women who are of age and sound mind to make decisions for themselves. It’s awful, and in some cases likely illegal, but even those actions pale in comparison to the sexual exploitation of children. And, if what these two attendees told Michael Gross is true, that’s exactly what took place.
Now we wait to see if any of those women, who would now be well into adulthood, come forward with their versions of what took place during Trump’s parties.
