A controversial hot mic recording from 2005 of a vulgar conversation involving now Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was released on Friday, leading to a rare apology from the presidential candidate.
A series of audio clips were released by CNN, focusing on various interviews between Trump and radio shock jock Howard Stern.
The most glaring interview focus on his daughter Ivanka. Specifically Trump (70) and Stern’s (62) 2004 comments about the then 21-year-old’s physique:
Trump: My daughter is beautiful, Ivanka.
Stern: By the way, your daughter…
Trump: She’s beautiful.
Stern: Can I say this? A piece of ass.
Two years after the exchange, the men spoke about Ivanka again. Stern said that Trump’s daughter looked “more voluptuous than ever.” Stern asked if she had gotten breast implants.
Trump, who stated that “he would know” if his daughter had work done, replied to Stern by saying, “She’s actually always been very voluptuous.” He also mentioned that she was “almost 6 feet tall and she’s been, she’s an amazing beauty.” Trump praised is daughters grades after.
The other audio clips compiled by CNN of Trump’s various appearances with Stern range from Trump speaking vividly on his various sexual activities,
and how much he hated his ex-wife’s accent.
This certainly isn’t the first time Trump’s statements about his now 34-year-old daughter have been questionable.
In fact, in a 2006 interview with The View, Trump said that if Ivanka weren’t his daughter, he would be dating her.
