Trump- All the Publicity That’s Fit to Print

Trump Don Juan NY Post 1990

“John Miller” was busy churning out publicity on his Lothario “client” Donald  Trump. Vintage NY Post headline Feb. 1990

When The Washington Post published a 1991 call  where Donald Trump pretends to be his own publicist named John Miller who can be heard on the tape boasting about his playboy “client,” the presumptive Republican candidate flatly denied it was him.

People Don’t Lie

Well according to a People magazine article from July 22,1991, not only does Marla Maples admit the voice belonged to The Donald, Trump himself admits to masquerading as a publicist.

The on the rocks relationship as reported by The NY Post September 1991

From People Magazine July 22 1991:

Return Engagement

Was She Trumped, Er, Dumped? No Way! Marla Maples Has Donald—and a $250,000 Ring—Wrapped Around Her Finger

Okay, first Donald left Ivana for Marla. Right? Then he dropped Marla for Carla. And then he shunned Carla for Marla. Wait a minute. Who’s on first? Call Abbott and Costello. Or call Marla Maples and Donald Trump. The last time anybody sorted it all out, it seems that they were engaged to be married—to each other—and Marla was sporting a sparkler as big as the Plaza.

Just two weeks ago, though, Ms. Maples was not even taking The Donald’s calls. Not after a PEOPLE reporter played her a tape on June 26 of a man saying that he was a Trump publicist named John Miller. A shocked, devastated Marla identified the voice as that of Trump himself. He announced, among other things, that he’d traded in his Georgia peach for an Italian model (Carla Bruni). “When I heard his voice on that tape saying those things, I said, ‘Whoa! Uh-uh. No more,’ ” says Marla. “If he could say all that stuff and act like it’s cool to have this playboy image, then oh my gosh, all I could say was, ‘Baby, you’re on your own.’ “

So she packed a bag, ducking the press as well as The Donald’s persistent appeals to reconcile, and took refuge at the Greenwich, Conn., home of her close friend, morning talk show host Kathie Lee Gilford. There she talked, prayed (she and Kathie Lee are both devout Christians) and came to a Donald-less conclusion: “I realized I was not going to die without this person in my life.”

Meanwhile a penitent Don Juan-ald had come to the opposite conclusion. The John Miller fiasco he called a joke gone awry. “What I did became a good time at Mar-la’s expense, and I’m very sorry,” says the newly humbled tycoon. As for his wandering eye, “I’d felt that I needed space and freedom after the divorce, so I took the opportunity to go out with other women, but I kept coming back to Marla. I realized, why go looking for something when you already have exactly what you want?”

The problem: By the time he knew what he wanted, he didn’t have her anymore. So he pleaded with Marla’s mother, Ann Ogletree. He reasoned with Marla’s friends. But to no avail. “I knew he was trying to reach me for days, but I just couldn’t bear to hear his voice,” says Marla, 27. “I wasn’t ready.” Finally she agreed to see him because, she says, “I couldn’t really move on until I looked him in the eyes and knew that it was truly over.”

Donald, 45, drove to the Giffords’, and, says Marla, “proposed to me for the millionth time.” Was it the sparkle in his eye—or in the 7.5-carat, estimated $250,000 emerald-cut Harry Winston diamond engagement ring he brought with him—that made her say yes? “When I saw him, I could feel the truth, that we had to push it to this point to be able to truly make the commitment to each other,” she muses. “Whether he did [the John Miller stunt] as a joke or as a final straw to try to push me farther away from him, it ended up bringing us to a new level.”

  1. Could this man really be the next president of the US?

  2. Ahh yes, the indiscriminate tradition and behavior of powerful and/or wealthy men are most certainly perpetuated through Donald (t)Rump. He might join a growing list of U.S. Presidents with horrible ethics and explicit ‘hidden’ love affairs. Although (t)Rump has already originated his own long Free-for-All Female To Do list if she is buyable. Yes, (t)Rump joins these “distinguished” White House’rs:

    Thomas Jefferson, William Harrison, John Tyler, Grover Cleveland, Warren Harding, John F. Kennedy, and of course Bill Clinton. Want a quick read about these DNA results and compelling ‘dirty’ stories? Here’s a link:

    (t)Rump should fit in nicely with these legendary Penis-Pokers! 😀 **

    ** Though my comment is more a parody of hyper-testosterone A-Type male personalities with too much money… I do not find any humour in this man possibly becoming the next U.S. President! It would be a shameful reflection on the character of the enitre nation, really.

  3. I heard Trump denying this recording yesterday — remarkably convenient these short memories that people in power (or seeking power) seem to have…

    The Miller recording was by the WAPO reporter who said she never gave it to anyone and said Trump was the only other person that could have recorded the call. So, who gave the recording to the paper?
