In an interview with Spanish radio program, "El Show de Mandril," Salma Hayek revealed the latest bizarre story about Donald Trump and his sexual exploits with women.
Hayek met Trump before she had attained any real fame and was just getting started in Hollywood, BuzzFeed News reports.
"“When I met that man, I had a boyfriend," Hayek said. "And he tried to become his friend to get my home telephone number.”
When Trump finally did get her number, Hayek says that he asked her out.
Hayek didn't just take the "I have a boyfriend route," but told the television personality and GOP presidential nominee that she wouldn't have dated him under any circumstances. Predictably fragile and aggressive, Trump then tried to get his revenge.
“When I told him I wouldn’t go out with him even if I didn’t have a boyfriend, [which he took as disrespectful], he called — well, he wouldn’t say he called, but someone told the National Enquirer," Hayek said.
The big story? That Salma Hayek was lusting after Trump, but Trump wouldn't date her because the actress was too short for him.
Hayek thinks this article may not just have been a ploy to save his pride but also possibly a final attempt to force her into sleeping with him. Trump called her after the article came out, prompting the award-winning actress to believe Trump was still angling for that date.
"He thought that I would try to go out with him so people wouldn’t think that’s why he wouldn’t go out with me," Hayek said.
If this story doesn't sound crazy enough, just wait, it gets weirder. Trump has been perpetuating stores about celebrity women wanting to date him for years, but as in the case of the article about Hayek, he manages to keep a degree of separation between himself and the tale.
Compelling evidence suggests however that Trump has been using a false name to push flattering stories about himself since the 1970s. According to The Washington Post, reporters throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s would often call Trump's office and be greeted by a "John Miller" or "John Barron" who sounded exactly like Trump himself.
With all of Trump's sleaze and dishonesty, it's no wonder that Hayek would dislike Trump for personal reasons but she has also acted as a passionate Hillary Clinton surrogate throughout the 2016 election. Naturally, Hayek also had an important message for her radio audience about Trump's policies.
Hayek has consistently decried Trump's racist remarks about Mexican-Americans, and is also concerned about Trump's threat to halt the flow of money from the U.S. to Mexico — which many people rely on to feed their families — if Mexico doesn't pay for the border wall. Hayek warns listeners, "Even if you’re here legally, a U.S. citizen, you wouldn’t be able to send money.”
Thanks to Hayek, yet another outrageous Trump story has been brought to public attention. With the assault scandals, sexist language, racism and bad sportsmanship, let's hope America is ready to kiss this election cycle, and Trump, goodbye.
