Tina Brown Tingled For Trump

This story is hilarious. I thought I could love Trump only so much, but clearly there’s room for more love.

In a wide-ranging interview, Brown talks about some of the highlights of her nearly 40 years at the top of the magazine world – including the decision to put the famous image of a pregnant and nude Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair – as well as her recipe for success, her marriage to Sir Harold Evans, her book The Vanity Fair Diaries and her interaction with Donald Trump when he was just gossip page fodder in New York.

“Donald Trump always came on the line with a gag, and in a funny way it did win him the hearts of the press, I think,” Brown tells Dokoupil. “I found him very beguiling actually. He had a kind of freshness and bravado that made me laugh. But then he got less and less entertaining.”

It changed, she says, because “the desire for publicity made him so impossible to deal with. One of our best writers did a piece on him, and she noted in the piece that he had Hitler’s speeches in his office. And he went absolutely ballistic.”

HELLO. Will The Right Stuff jump back on the Trump Train?

Btw, Mein Kampf does have a lot of astute psychological insights.

A few months later, the future president got his revenge at a party by dumping wine down the back of the writer’s dress, she says.

Wine Game >>> Whine Game.
