Donald Trump's poolside parties in Florida were so creepy - 2020-08-21
There's nothing Donald Trump loves more than surrounding himself with beautiful women. "It doesn't really matter what [the media] write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass," he once told Esquire magazine. And where better to put himself in that company than poolside at his ritzy private club?
Trump's post-Ivana-divorce parties at his Mar-a-Lago club were stocked with "models from Miami, who floated around the patio and pool," wrote the Washington Post's Michael Kranish and Marc Fisher in their new book, Trump Revealed. Ron Rice, who founded the Hawaiian Tropic pageants in which Trump's second wife, Marla, had competed, recalled to the Boston Globe how Trump would turn to him to fill out his guest lists. "He'd call me up and say, 'I'm having a big party. Bring your girls in,'" Rice said. "So I'd bring in a bunch of models. Sometimes he gave us rooms at Mar-a-Lago."
"Trump insisted on at least a three-to-two ratio of women to men at his bashes," Kranish and Fisher reported. That got the approval of Roger Stone, the peddler of conspiracy theories and former Nixon aide who's a longtime Trump adviser. "There's a hundred beautiful women and ten guys," Stone told the Post. "'Look, how cool are we?' I mean, it was great."
