Tom Arnold Says Trump Even Lies About Germaphobia: ‘How Many Germaphobes Raw Dog That Many Porn Stars?’

TCA 2018: Actor hammers president and his supporters during “Hunt for the Trump Tapes” panel

During his TCA panel for his Viceland show “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes,” Tom Arnold hammered President Trump early and often, calling out the president for consistently lying, including about his supposed germaphobia.

“How many germaphobes raw dog that many porn stars?”

Arnold asked a room of TV critics. Trump’s supposed germaphobia has come up numerous times, most notably after the infamous “Steele Dossier” was published. The hard-to-believe allegation, which has never been confirmed, posited that Trump was secretly recorded by the Russian government while watching prostitutes urinate on a hotel bed in Moscow during a trip there in 2013.

Trump and his supporters have often referenced Trump’s massive fear of germs as proof that the “pee tape” doesn’t exist.

Arnold isn’t buying that excuse, however, and points to New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer, who has extensively covered Trump and interviewed Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence agent behind the dossier. “She proves without a doubt that Trump is not a germaphobe … She lays it out, that’s a medical scientific fact.”

But for now, the “pee tape” still remains a mystery.

“If we had a tape that would completely change this regime,” executive producer Nomi Ernst Leidner said. If they ever got their hands on it? “Of course we’d make sure American public got it right away.”

Arnold also went after Trump’s supporters and lamented how they always seem to believe whatever he tells them, especially when he complains about unfair treatment. “Why are you feeling sorry for him?” he complained, pointing out that Trump is not the “man of the people” he makes himself out to be. “Have you ever heard a president that complains as much as he does about everything?”

“The Hunt for the Trump Tapes” is slated to premiere later this year.
