When you and your father’s campaign has been so misogynistic that you’re just not sure how your spouses will vote…


Melania was looking particularly frosty when she arrived to vote with her cheating husband under a chorus of Manhattan boos.

Is it any wonder after this broke on Friday?

A new report claims that owners of the tabloid newspaper National Enquirer paid a former Playboy model $150,000 in order to kill her story about an affair she had with Donald Trump.

Karen McDougal, the magazine’s Playmate of the Year for 1998, claimed to friends that she had a consensual romantic relationship with the 70-year-old businessman in 2006 — while he was married to his current wife Melania, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The affair lasted between 10 months to a year — and included a trip to the 2006 Miss Universe pageant where she was seated in the front row, her friend told the Journal.

It was too late to get much coverage in the media or to impact the campaign, but Trump sure looked worried that the payback would begin today.
