Daily Mail Still Milking That Donald Trump-Studio 54 Quote

An oldie but goodie.

The U.K. newspaper went big with this remark last fall, under a monumental permalink. And they have done so again this week, in a piece by U.S. correspondent Tom Leonard that sits below an equally monumental permalink.

And who can blame them? The quote is a doozy:

“I would watch supermodels getting screwed, well-known supermodels getting screwed, on a bench in the middle of the [Studio 54] room,” Trump recalled breathlessly. “There were seven of them and each one was getting screwed by a different guy.”

Less clear from this week’s Daily Mail coverage is the origin of the quote. It was sourced by the paper last fall from a book by Michael D’Antonio titled Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Art of Success. However, the remark was not directly gathered by that author. Rather, it was made by Trump to another writer, Timothy O’Brien, and first shared in O’Brien’s 2005 book Trump Nation: The Art of Being the Donald.

P.S. We think Trump meant not simultaneously, but at seven different times.
