It turns out that Donald Trump, who accused former Miss Universe Alicia Machado of having a “sex tape,” has appeared in not one but at least two videos for Playboy.
The latest video, recently unearthed by CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski and Chris Massie, featured Trump assisting the company in its search for a 40th anniversary Playmate. He is shown interviewing and taking photos of some of the potential models. According to CNN, the video comes from a 1994 VHS tape titled “Playboy Centerfold.”
None of the scenes featuring Trump feature any nudity, though it does appear elsewhere on the tape.
Jeff Cohen, a senior photo editor for Playboy, told CNN that the company wanted a high-profile launch, and decided on New York City as the starting point for search for the 40th anniversary Playmate.
“We’ll get a lot of press, we’ll get TV, we’ll get radio,” he said. “What’s the best way to do that? Aha, I know, we’re gonna ask Donald Trump whether he would come and photograph, do the test pictures, of the first girl that comes in.’ And that’s basically what we did.”
The news follows last week’s report by Kaczynski (who left Buzzfeed for CNN earlier this week) that Trump appeared in a 2000 softcore porn video for Playboy.
In a 3 a.m. Twitter attack, Trump called Machado “disgusting” and recommended his followers “check out” her alleged “sex tape.” No one has found evidence of such a tape.
