‘Oh! It’s Daddy’: One phone call to Ivanka revealed Trump’s fears over affair reports

Donald Trump desperately wanted to know if his daughter and allies were watching CNN’s Anderson Cooper interview former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal as she gave her side of the story about an alleged 15-month affair.

The tale came in a passing comment from conservative lawyer George Conway, previously married to Kellyanne Conway. The story, he explains, illustrates just how worried Trump was about the news story.

McDougal was given a contract by David Pecker, a close friend of Trump’s and CEO of AMI, the parent company of the National Enquirer. Meanwhile, Stormy Daniels was given a similar amount of money through a check from Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.

“There is a vantage point where you have — where you sort of had maybe more intimate knowledge to what Trump was seeking to keep hidden as a candidate in that transition period before you became one of the loudest voices warning us,” MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace said to Conway. She then asked how bad the affair stories were for him.

“I think it is pretty bad. I think he was very concerned about it,” Conway said of Trump. “I’ll tell a story I haven’t told too publicly before: I remember that evening when Anderson Cooper interviewed McDougal. I was sitting at dinner with my ex-wife, Jared and Ivanka Trump, and the phone rang.”

He continued: “She went into the kitchen and answered the phone. ‘Oh! It’s Daddy!’ And what did he want to know? Whether they were watching Karen McDougal. So, he was very, very concerned about it.”

Trump’s trial in New York over the scheme with Stormy Daniels is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 22.
