Ann Coulter, the conservative author who has been campaigning for Donald Trump, whom she believes God is using to save America, stopped by “The Eric Metaxas Show” yesterday to praise the GOP presidential frontrunner for never dabbling in drugs or alcohol.
When Coulter tried to point to Trump’s teetotalism as proof of his personal virtues, Metaxas interjected: “His vice of choice was adultery.”
“Allegedly,” Coulter said with a laugh.
“You know where he met Marla Maples?” Coulter said of Trump’s second wife, who was rumored to be his mistress while he was married to his first wife, Ivana. “You know where he met her? I haven’t really followed his personal story very closely but he met her in church.”
People Magazine reported at the time that Trump and Maples met at a celebrity tennis tournament in Atlantic City in 1985 and by “1987, during services at the Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan, Trump was secretly romancing Maples as he found ways to temporarily ditch Ivana and their kids.”
“He kept going to some, like, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, kept meeting Marla Maples there, got to know her as a friend and at some point he apparently went to the pastor and said, ‘I think I’m in trouble, I’m falling in love with this woman,’ and then he did marry her,” Coulter said.
She explained that just as “we have degrees of murder, we can have degrees of adultery.”
Trump, she said, is unlike other politicians who have had “sleazy” affairs.
“There are degrees of murder, there are degrees of adultery,” she said. “It’s not his strongest point, oh well. He’s the only one who’s going to build the wall.”
