Someone in Stern’s studio then launched into a crude impression of Melania having sex with Trump. ” he cried in a fake accent as Stern’s crew—and Trump—collapsed into laughter.When Trump called in to Stern’s show on November 9, 1999, the conversation turned to Melania (“a potential first lady,” Trump said) and her looks. “Ahhh, I’ve got my pants off already,” Stern groaned. “It’s a thing of beauty.” In a version of the interview clipped by , Stern begged Trump to have sex with Melania on air to boost his ratings. The also reported that, during the interview, Trump told Stern he frequently “mentally” felt up Melania in public.“Let me talk to that broad in your bed,” Stern demanded. Dropping his voice, Stern asked about how often Melania and Trump had sex and how good it was.

It is like university, and it is the guys that never get out, whose wives keep such a tight leash on them, that wind up going crazy at tournaments — while their kid is asleep in a hotel room. No one has ever been arrested, but it can be like prom night.The picture that emerged was often sweet but often incredibly ugly, rife with tales of extra-marital affairs in rinky-dink hotels, fistfights in the stands, threats uttered, coaches bribed and dads getting so sloshed at tournaments that they wind up in the hospital while their child is fast asleep back at the hotel. There was this one mother, a nurse from the Whitby area east of Toronto, and she delivered babies for a living. Maybe it is our Momma bear instinct mixed with our hormones, but this nurse would start swearing at the parents on the other team and then she would go at them. We had this one dad who got so drunk that he started smashing beer bottles and wound up in the hospital getting stitches in his hand. Part of the joy of it as a parent — is that it can be immature — and it is fun. We’ve had the Moms rent a limo to drive up to a game, so they could drink.Now, of course, I would never say a thing like that, but there are those that say that.” “President Trump will be a reality,” Stern said as Trump signed off.
