Trump Called Young Woman 'First-Rate P*ssy' to a Reporter in 2000: Report

Michael Corcoran, a journalist who wrote for the now-defunct Maximum Golf, told the Daily Beast that President Donald Trump used crude language to sexually objectify an unnamed woman in 2000.

His account was corroborated by another editor.

According to the Daily Beast, "Donald Trump singled out a 'young socialite' at his club at Mar-a-Lago by telling a reporter, 'there is nothing in the world like first-rate pussy.'"

A top editor changed Trump's use of "pussy" to "talent," despite the objection of the reporter who wrote the piece.

Corcoran also noted in his piece that Trump had waited at a terminal with him, for billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein was later incarcerated after allegedly paying minors for "massages" that involved, per the Daily Beast, "groping and rape."

The White House ignored a request for comment from the Daily Beast.
