CAUGHT: Donald Trump Completely Embarrassed After Being Busted Pretending To Be His Own Publicist (VIDEO)


When the kid shows up with chocolate all over his face, it’s a good bet he ate the candy bar. When Donald Trump shows up with his distinctive voice in an audio recording, it’s likely that he was the one who is talking. Trump denied a “Washington Post” story saying he called “People Magazine” pretending to be his own publicist. But why would he do that?

Apparently, the Donald frequently pawned himself off as his spokesman, calling himself “John Miller.” Journalists said that he would phone saying that Madonna and France’s future first lady Carla Bruni, among others, called him up and asked him out.

Under oath, in a separate situation, Trump admitted he used the pseudonym of “John Baron,” which coincidentally, is the name of his last child, “Baron.”

During a Friday morning phone interview on NBC’s “Today” Trump denied pretending to be his own publicist in the video:

‘I don’t know anything about it. You’re telling me about it for the first time. And it doesn’t sound like my voice at all. I have many, many people that are trying to imitate my voice. And you can imagine that. And this sounds like one of these scams, one of the many scams, doesn’t sound like me.’

Savannah Guthrie, a “Today” show co-host, asked Trump about what he said at the time, that it was a “joke gone awry.” But Trump said no, it wasn’t him. He didn’t know anything about it.

The Washington Post article said that Trump often pretended to be his own public relations guy, calling various publications and using the names “John Miller’ and “John Barron.” Guthrie questioned Trump again, asking if he pretended to be his own publicist.

The real estate mogul replied:

‘No. It was not me on the phone, and it doesn’t sound like me on the phone, I will tell you that.’

‘You’re going so low as to talk about something that took place 25 years ago about whether or not I made a phone call, I guess you’re saying under a presumed name? The answer is no, and let’s get on to more current subjects. I mean, I know it’s wonderful for your listeners, but I think we have more important things to discuss.’

The more Trump talks, the more insecure he sounds, not a good quality for a presidential candidate.
