Trump compared her to one of his daughters, Ivanka Trump.
“He’s very proud of Ivanka, as he should be. I mean, she’s a brilliant woman. She’s beautiful. That’s his daughter, and he should be proud of her,” she told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in an interview that aired Thursday.
“He said I was beautiful like her, and, you know, ‘You’re a smart girl,’” she said. “And there wasn’t a lot of comparing, but there was some, yeah. I heard a lot about her.”
However, McDougal said she didn’t find it weird ― and then made a strange comparison of her own.
“I know a lot of people think it’s odd. But do I think it’s strange that a father would love his daughter so much that he brags about her? No, I brag about my dog that much.”
That wasn’t the only eyebrow-raising moment: McDougal also said Trump made her cry after the first time they were intimate.
McDougal, who was Playmate of the Year in 1998, is suing a publisher to get out of an agreement that she says forbids her from talking about her 10-month affair with Trump, which took place about the same time as his alleged relationship with adult film star Stormy Daniels.
