We guess she won??
This week we found out she followed Stormy Daniels‘ lead and sued American Media Inc. (whose chief exec David Pecker is a Trump pal) for her right to speak.
We don’t know what’s going on with the law, but she’s spilling anyway!
In a bombshell interview with Anderson Cooper Thursday night, McDougal told the entire tawdry tale!
Ch-ch-check out the entire crazy story (above) and see the 10 craziest highlights (below)!
1. He Offered Her Money
Stormy Daniels said it was a fear of hers — but for McDougal it happened. After having sex with him on their first date, Trump offered to pay her for it.
When she told him she wasn’t that kind of girl, he said “you’re very special.”
She then burst into tears on the drive home.
2. He Compared Her To His Daughter
McDougal says Trump compared her to Ivanka Trump:
“He’s very proud of Ivanka. As he should be. She’s a brilliant woman, she’s beautiful, she’s… you know, that’s his daughter, he should be proud of her. He said I was beautiful like her. And ‘You’re a smart girl.’ There wasn’t a lot of comparing but there was some. I heard a lot about her.”
Ew ew ewwww! If that sounds familiar, it’s because Stormy said he said the same thing to her in her 2011 In Touch interview! Sounds like it was his go-to line…
3. It Was A Real Relationship To Her
Karen is convinced Trump had feelings for her.
She says they had sex “many dozens” of times and saw one another at least five times a month for 10 months.
She also claims Trump told her he loved her “many times”. When Anderson asked if she thought the relationship might lead to marriage, she said simply:
4. She Was Offended By The Access Hollywood Tape
She told Anderson Trump was always kind to her and that was “not the man that I knew” on that tape.
But the man she knew she didn’t know very well because…
5. Karen Didn’t Know About Stormy
Even though the affairs overlap, she told Cooper she really believed at the time he was faithful to her:
“I knew he talked to ladies, but I didn’t know there was anything else. I didn’t know he was intimate with other ladies, but I guess it makes sense — if he’s doing it behind his wife’s back, why would he not do it behind my back?”
Speaking of his wife…
6. Trump Let Her Into Melania’s Room
Karen says Trump took her in the “back entrance” to Trump Tower, telling her the employees “wouldn’t say anything.”
He then took her up to his apartment, which she said was “very gold” but nice. Then she said Trump brought her into Melania Trump‘s room:
“We passed a room, and he said ‘This is Melania’s room. She likes to have her alone time’ or ‘to get away to read’ or something like that. I’m like ‘Uhh. OK.’ That’s when I kind of thought, ‘Maybe they’re having issues.’ I didn’t ask. It’s not my business at that point.”
7. And She Even Met Melania!
At a Celebrity Apprentice party at the Playboy mansion, Karen was introduced Melania and took a photo with her, Ivanka, and Donald!
She says she tried to keep her distance (That’s her on the right!) and thought maybe Melania knew.
“It was told to me that they were arguing that night. And I said, ‘Why?’ And somebody said, ‘Probably because of you.’ But I don’t know if that’s a fact or not.”
8. Karen Wants To Apologize
Karen told Anderson the her only regret was that Donald was married, and she’s sorry to Melania — who she says she put out of sight, out of mind during the affair:
“What can you say, except, I’m sorry?”
9. She Isn’t Trying To Hurt Trump
She said coming forward wasn’t meant to damage the President, just to tell her story:
“I voted for Donald. Why would I want to damage him?”
She says she understood that he was trying to protect his family but it still was “hurtful” that Trump had denied their relationship.
And the craziest thing…
10. Karen McDougal Was At The Golf Tournament When Trump Met Stormy Daniels — AND Where Trump Was Accused Of Assault!
That July 2006 golf tournament, the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe, where Trump met Stormy Daniels? Karen stayed there with Trump!
“I do remember him saying, he came in one day and he said, ‘Oh there were a bunch of porn stars out there. They were wanting pictures of me.’ And I’m like ‘Oh, that’s funny.’ You know, it’s cute, whatever. I do remember him saying that, but I can’t imagine when he found the time. Except for maybe the day I left.”
But that’s not all Trump found the time for. One of his 19 sexual misconduct accusers was there, too!
Jessica Drake, also an adult performer, claimed Trump forcibly kissed her, just as he bragged about on tape. She spurned him, but she says later someone called on his behalf offering her $10,000 to have sex with him.
