President Trump said there is “nothing in the world like first-rate pussy” to a reporter while eyeing a “young socialite” at Mar-a-Largo in 2000, according to a report Wednesday.
Michael Corcoran, who worked as a reporter for Maximum Golf Magazine, which is now defunct, was doing a profile on Trump at his Mar-a-Largo resort when the businessman pointed out the young woman on the veranda at dinner and made the sexual comment.
Corcoran and his former editor, Joe Bargmann, spoke to the Daily Beast about the editorial process that resulted in the editor-in-chief removing the quote from the piece completely.
Corcoran said that the top editor attempted to change the word "pussy" to "talent." When Bargmann refused that alteration, he said the quote was replaced.
The editor-in-chief at the time, Michael Caruso, did not return the Daily Beast's requests for comment.
The latest report echoes previous times Trump made crude comments about women. That includes the infamous "Access Hollywood" video from 2005, which was revealed during the 2016 campaign, in which Trump can be heard talking about grabbing women "by the pussy."
