Donald Trump’s tame appearance in a 2000 Playboy video came to light late last week after he attacked a former beauty queen for her alleged “se.x tape” past.
CNN’s KFILE has now uncovered two more Playboy videos in which Trump makes an appearance, including one in which he is depicted photographing fully clothed models with a Polaroid camera and conducting an interview with a potential Playmate.
In that video — a 1994 VHS tape obtained by CNN titled “Playboy Centerfold” — Trump takes part in Playboy magazine’s search for its 40th anniversary Playmate.
The scenes featuring Trump do not contain nu.dity or se.xually explicit content, but other scenes in the movie depict fully nu.de women se.ductively rubbing themselves in different scenarios.
In one scene,Trump interviews a potential model, asking her what qualities she possesses that would make her the right choice for the 40th anniversary cover.
“I believe that it’s not just beauty, I think it’s an attitude,” the model says. “I think it has a lot to do with personality and an attitude. I think Playboy really represents that, and I believe that I have that, and I have what it takes to represent them.”
“Well I think you have what it takes too,” Trump replies. “And I think everyone in this room thinks you have what it takes also.”
Bridget Marks, one of the models Trump interviewed, said in a phone interview with CNN that she had a positive experience with Trump that day and whenever she has seen him since.
“I thought he was thoughtful. I thought he was respectful. I had a very good time,” said Marks, a registered Democrat who said she is remaining neutral in the presidential election. “He has remembered my name and been very nice to me and my family whenever I’ve seen him.”
Jeff Cohen, a senior photo editor for Playboy who was at the event, said that the magazine wanted the publicity generated by Trump to launch its search for the 40th anniversary playmate.
“We sat around and decided, ‘Let’s launch the search in New York City,'” Cohen told CNN. “Obviously, the media capital. We’ll get a lot of press, we’ll get TV, we’ll get radio. What’s the best way to do that? Aha, I know, we’re gonna ask Donald Trump whether he would come and photograph, do the test pictures, of the first girl that comes in.’ And that’s basically what we did.”
Cohen, who said he’s voting for Hillary Clinton, also added that Trump was very professional and businesslike in his interactions with everyone there.
