Salma Hayek: Donald Trump planted a story in the Enquirer when I spurned him


How stupid is Donald Trump? Stupid enough to concoct an absolutely absurd scheme to neg Salma Hayek publicly by planting a story about her in the National Enquirer as way to win her heart, or at the very least, grab her by the p-ssy. Salma Hayek was chatting with a radio show a few days ago when she was asked about Trump. Salma has spoken about her hatred for Trump before, and I always thought her dislike of the man came from the simple fact that she’s Mexican and Trump thinks all Mexican people are rapists and criminals. But as it turns out, Salma has some personal experience with Trump too. When she was asked about all of the women coming forward with stories of assaults and gropings by the tiny hands of the Trumpster, Salma said she believed the women. Then she told her story.

“When I met that man, I had a boyfriend, and he tried to become his friend to get my home telephone number,” she said, describing meeting Trump early in her career before she was well-known. “He got my number and he would call me to invite me out.”

“When I told him I wouldn’t go out with him even if I didn’t have a boyfriend, [which he took as disrespectful], he called — well, he wouldn’t say he called, but someone told the National Enquirer,” Hayek continued, adding that she never went out with him. “Someone told the National Enquirer — I’m not going to say who, because you know that whatever he wants to come out comes out in the National Enquirer. It said that he wouldn’t go out with me because I was too short. Later, he called and left me a message. ‘Can you believe this? Who would say this? I don’t want people to think this about you.’ He thought that I would try to go out with him so people wouldn’t think that’s why he wouldn’t go out with me.”

In July, BuzzFeed News reported that Trump bought a $120,000 luxury trip with Trump Foundation money at a 2008 charity auction that included a dinner with Hayek, but never went on the trip, with tax records showing the donation was made by his foundation, not himself.

Trump’s scheme is absolutely one of the worst pick-up schemes I’ve ever heard. That’s like high-level sitcom-level absurdity. What woman would agree to go out with a man who told the world that he wouldn’t date her… because she’s “too short”? That’s not a thing. That’s like a guy telling the world he won’t date a certain woman because she’s got freckles. THAT IS NOT A THING. And think about how he schemed this too – he approached her boyfriend first! I’m assuming this was back in the day, so maybe the boyfriend was Edward Norton? And so Trump got her number, asked her out and she flat-out rejected him and he was still scheming! And that’s how small-minded he is, he thinks women will go out him if he publicly insults/negs them in the National Enquirer.

Well, at least Salma is married to an actual billionaire now.

    Oh, I do hope he responds with his typical stupidity and misogyny. On Twitter. At 3 am.

    • Rapunzel says:

      He won’t respond, Light purple. Salma’s husband is a real billionaire, and Salma is too beautiful for Trump’s handy, “she’s ugly so she’s lying” defense.

      • lightpurple says:

        But she’s short. And now, she’s proven herself a “nasty woman.”

        Nasty women unite!

      • SnazzyisAlive says:

        ha ha yes exactly. I think I said this yesterday as well – her husband is an actual billionaire and business mogul, not a fake one. So the Donald will likely keep his trap shut on this one

      • Kitten says:

        Three cheers for short, nasty women!

        We may be short, but don’t underestimate us–because we WILL come for you and your lies.

      • bettyrose says:

        I always thought us short ladies were especially nasty because we had to speak louder to get heard, so we’re used to asserting ourselves. (Raise your hand if you got placed at the end whenever the teacher lined the class up by height.)

      • frisbee says:

        hand raised – although it’s pretty useful in a way, you can always bite somebody’s knees as a shock tactic…

  2. Louise177 says:

    This was a bizarre story. I don’t get Trumps logic.

    • lightpurple says:

      Trump has no logic.

      • Kate says:

        He thinks everyone is like him.

        This is a guy who’s spent years trying to rebut one mans claim that he has small hands. Of course he thought Salam would be desperate to rebut the idea he didn’t want to go out with her because she’s short.

    • Millennial says:

      I was confused by the logic too, but I think he assumed that she’d go out with him to prove the story wrong? As in, Salma has such low self esteem she can’t stand to be “publicly rejected.” Trump is gross.

    • Kitten says:

      “Can you believe this? Who would say this? I don’t want people to think this about you.”

      Her Trump impression is pretty solid.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      I thought about it for a minute and then stopped because there is no logic to be found. It’s Trump. Since when is “short” an insult? And since when would ANYONE believe that in this equation it could ever be Trump who turns down a date with Salma frickin’ Hayek? It’s like if he believes it, other people must believe it too. This crazy moron.

      • Justjj says:

        Trump is a narcissist meaning he is full of delusion and believes every woman on earth wants him. I’ve known one or two and this sort of tactic is the EXACT m.o. of those guys. If you’re not famous, it usually means they’ll triangulate something ridiculous to one of your friends or get their ex involved. Then come to you with the “I hate to say this but…” then later ask if you’ll go out with them/fall into their arms crying that you need them/etc. when it was they who planted the seed to begin w

      • Ankhel says:

        I think you’re all forgetting how Trump’s been freaking out for 20+ years because a journo called his fingers short. Trump would’ve dated ANYONE to make that story go away.

        In Trump’s head, this harebrained scheme to make Salma date him probably makes 100% sense … 😂

  3. RussianBlueCat says:

    Donald Trump becoming President would be a nightmare for the US and the rest of the world. But I have a feeling if he loses he will lash out and be a nightmare to many people he thinks caused him to lose.
    What he has said on the campaign trail is nothing compared to what he will be like after the election. He is very vindictive

  4. Macheath says:

    The lengths this man will go! What a contemptible creature, an ignoramus, a colossal disgrace to humankind.

  5. Sixer says:

    Good grief. It’s like a never-ending flood, isn’t it? I had a serious comment to make linking his outing as a predator and his “Mexican rapists” incitements with a parallel here in the UK at the moment but, honestly? I can’t be bothered typing it all out. You guys know it all already.

    Instead, I will inject some joy and point everyone in the direction of #TrumpANovel

    You Americans are upping your Twitter pun game!

    • lightpurple says:

      My favorite Twitter thing so far coming out of this election, although not involving puns, was #Muslimsreportstuff

    • Rapunzel says:

      Sixer- those modified titles are funny, but there are plenty of titles in which fit him without any modification.

      Examples: Pride and Prejudice, A Clockwork Orange, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Or, American Horror Story.

    • Kitten says:

      I enjoyed the #TrumpYourCat stuff as well.

    • mia girl says:

      Rapunzel- True. But some of those have been given puntasic #TrumpNovel treatment:
      He Flew Over the Cuckcoos Nest
      White Pride and Pejudice
      No Pride, Just Prejudice

      Sixer- Others I loved:
      The Great Gasbag
      Woman I Groped on the Train
      Locker Room with a View
      Portrait of the Con-Artist as a Young Man

  6. nemera77 says:

    Is he going to Sue/Not Sue Selma.

    I say that because he is always making threats of a suing but never does. Beside any lawsuit will open him up for questions. That could be a bad thing for him

    • Esmom says:

      Yes, good question. Somehow I don’t think he’ll go after her since she is not an unknown “civilian” and not quite as easy to destroy.

    • Hannah says:

      Nope, she’s famous and has billionaiere husband wm can afford very good lawyers.

  7. Sasha says:

    Pathetic. I wonder what’s going to happen to him when he loses. I hope he melts into a big pile of goo.

  8. Lolo86lf says:

    It has become very obvious to the world that Donald Trump cannot handle rejection/losing very well. He is so vindictive and childish he has announced that unless he wins the election it is rigged. President Obama was right; in order to make himself look bigger, he belittles his opponents. He has no shame. I am glad Salma did not succumb to his charms.

  9. dana says:

    This reminds me of a Howard Stern interview where Trump just brought up Lucy Lawless out of nowhere & started talking about how she really wasn’t that attractive. Not so coincidentally, Page Six printed a story claiming that Lucy had totally blown him off after he put the moves on her.

    Another noteworthy quote from that interview was Trump saying his greatest regret was that Princess Diana died before he had a chance to date her. Though he admitted that it would’ve been tough to get Diana to agree to his usual requirements for women he dates (i.e., go to his doctor to get tested for AIDS & other STDs and then sign a confidentiality waiver that would grant permission to the doctor to share her test results with Trump).

    • bettyrose says:

      Was this during the mid-nineties when the cult of Lucy Lawless was at its strongest? On a planet obsessed with her at that time, she must have been devastated that one cheeto wasn’t into her.

    • Brittney B. says:

      Now I think we can safely assume that Angelina rejected him too… he has brought up her looks for years, she was the child of a man he knew (now we know the pattern; see: Paris Hilton), etc. Of *course* her dad probably eats it up when Trump “defends” him, too… she’s got bigger fish to fry, but I bet she’s sitting on a story too.

      Oh god, what if one of the many effed up things Jon Voight did was passing along her number to Trump? *Then* could people finally realize that father-daughter bonds aren’t sacred and dutifully kept no matter how awful the man? Hah!!

      (I’d be angry that my boyfriend did that, too, if I were Salma.)

      • bettyrose says:

        Oh gawd, Jon Voight would totally have done something like that too. *shudder*

      • teacakes says:

        OH MY GOD I would like to believe even Jon Voight wouldn’t stoop that low as to sell out his own daughter (no matter how estranged) to a predator but oh my god the image…

  10. Jayna says:

    It is what is so disturbing about Donald, how he reacts to perceived slights by women. He goes after them in a vindictive manner. There is no doubt in my mind this orange man baby called the National Enquirer with that story to elevate himself as a desirable catch and try and humiliate her as not good enough for his standards, and then in true narcissistic behavior, thought he could use it to his advantage to still get a date.


  11. Jade says:

    If this is his tactic, he must have tried to pick up Angelina too hahaha.

    Another actual billionaire, Branson, also spoke of how vindictive he sounded during lunch and how he left Branson pretty bewildered and disturbed. If Drumpf is already this deplorable in public, can you imagine how he’s like in private? He concluded that this is definitely a person who shouldn’t have access to nuclear codes. He wouldn’t focus on making the country great, he focuses on destroying and tearing people down. And that’s, just ONE, of his deplorable traits. Thanks Republicans.

  12. laur says:

    What I really wonder in all of this is how on earth the man has managed to persuade anyone, let alone more than one woman, to marry him?! He doesn’t even sound like he might have that initial charmer phase, he is just downright gross. I don’t care how much money he has, you could never persuade me to marry him and put up with his disgusting behaviour even before all this news about him came out. I’d rather be celibate for life.

      Imagine that mouth coming in for a kiss!😱😱😱 Sorry for the visual, everyone.

    • KWM says:

      My only explanation is 2 of his 3 wives English is not their first language, that can be the only explanation, they just didn’t realize how much he destroys the English language because they could not tell.

    I can’t wait to early vote this week. AGAINST THIS HORRIBLE piece of trash.

    So this is why he wants to build a wall with Mexico!

  15. Tredd says:

    YO! SALMA! I think your name is on the, “someone needs to tell her she’s no longer famous” list. If this is your way of trying to stay relevant, you need to use some of your rich, ultra-white husband’s money to get a new advisor.

  16. Jag says:

    Actually, I have been rejected due to being too short. The guy said that if I were taller, he would have asked me out.
