Donald Trump on ‘Golden Showers’ Claim: Nope, I’m a Germaphobe

President-elect asks, “Does anyone really believe that story?”

During his press conference on Wednesday, Donald Trump dismissed claims about him in an unverified dossier of information released by BuzzFeed, saying nobody should believe the lewd claims that he participated in sexual activities like “golden showers” because, for one, he is a “germaphobe.”

“I tell this to people all the time, I was in Russia years ago… I told many people, ‘Be careful because you don’t want to see yourself on television. Cameras are all over the place,'” Trump said. “Does anyone really believe that story?”

Trump continued: ‘I’m also very much of a germaphobe, by the way. Believe me.”

During his first press conference in nearly six months, Trump also called the unverified dossier claiming that he and his top staffers have potentially compromising ties to Russia “fake news” and “phony stuff” crafted by “sick people.”

BuzzFeed reported Tuesday that a dossier “making explosive — but unverified” allegations has been circulating for weeks among elected officials, intelligence agents and reporters. It alleged that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” Trump for years.

CNN reported Tuesday both President Barack Obama and Trump were given a two-page synopsis of the report, which sounds pretty awkward, when you hear what it’s about.

It includes what BuzzFeed calls “specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians.”

Those include this one:

“According to Source D, where s/he had been present, TRUMP’s (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) in front of him.”
