He also described his wife as a “blimp” during the interview, which apparently took place just months after Trump had made lewd comments about groping women and pursuing a married woman. He had married Melania, his third wife, earlier that year.
“You know, they just blow up, right?” Trump said of his pregnant wife in December 2005, according to a report by SF Gate.
“Like a blimp — in the right places. In her case, the right places. I mean she really has become a monster — in all the right places,” Trump told Stern. “I mean monster in the most positive way. She has gotten very, very large — in all the right places.”
The reality TV star has come under fire after The Washington Post on Friday published an 11-year-old recording in which Trump uses crude language to describe groping women while speaking to “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush.
“When you’re a star they let you do it,” Trump says in the recording. “You can do anything ... Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
He also talked about pursuing a married woman.
“I did try and fuck her. She was married,” Trump said.
Melania responded to the “Access Hollywood” recording on Saturday, calling her husband’s comments “unacceptable” and “offensive.”
“This does not represent the man that I know,” she said. “He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”
The fallout is ongoing for Trump, as several GOP lawmakers have revoked their support of him, and an increasing number are calling for him to drop out of the race.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
