In 2001, a gossip columnist discussed Donald Trump’s Russian sexcapades on ‘Howard Stern’

In February of 2016, a “Howard Stern Show” clip from 2001 had resurfaced of then real estate mogul Donald Trump, who had called into the show and engaged in a dick-measuring contest with in-studio guest and gossip reporter A.J. Benza. The two were snapping at each other over a woman they both dated, a model named Kara Young.

Benza and Trump went back and forth over who stole whose girlfriend, then this curious exchange went down:

Trump: I assume A.J.’s clean. I hope he’s clean.

Benza: Meanwhile, he bangs Russian people…

Stern: Russian people?

Trump: Who are you talking about, Russian people, A.J.? I don’t know anything.

Benza: He used to call me when I was a columnist and say, “I was just in Russia, the girls have no morals, you gotta get out there.” [Trump’s] out of his mind.

The exchange happens at the 4:20 mark.

The aside seems to take on new significance in the wake of the release of a collection of unverified memos reportedly authored by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, or as we here at Death and Taxes call him, Deep Bladder.

Trump claims that his well-known germaphobic tendencies preclude him from taking part in any vengeful water sports with Russian sex workers (as outlined in the dossier obtained by BuzzFeed News). But the accusation levied during the on-air banter seems to suggest a history of revelry enjoyed by Trump in Russia, i.e. perhaps not piss-related, but recreational activities with women who are apparently up for anything.
