Trump May Have Planted A Fake Story Because Salma Hayek Wouldn't Date Him

by Hope Schreiber

I don't know you guys, based on all the news surrounding Donald Trump lately, I don't think he'd be so upset at getting rejected that he would feed a fake story to The National Enquirer.

Sure, he says we should grab women "by the pussy."

And yeah, he has nearly a dozen women coming forward saying he sexually assaulted them.  But this?! You think this guy would do that?

Yeah, me too.

Actress Salma Hayek says that Trump pursued her while she had a boyfriend, and when she rejected him, he called up National Enquirer and said that he found her to be too short for him.

For the record, Salma Hayek is 5'2".

Hayek, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, appeared on the Spanish-language radio show "El Show del Mandril" on Radio Centro 93.9 in Los Angeles to give her opinion on the Republican presidential nominee.

Hayek believes the many women who have come out to speak against Trump's sexual assault against them.

She met Donald Trump before she was incredibly well known. She said,

When I met that man, I had a boyfriend, and he tried to become his friend to get my home telephone number. 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. 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.

Back in July, BuzzFeed News reported that Trump used Trump Foundation money to purchase a $120,000 luxury trip at a 2008 auction, which included a dinner with Hayek.

While tax records show the donation was made by the foundation, Trump did not go on the trip.

Hayek also slammed Donald Trump's racism against Mexicans, which includes his proposed policy of stopping Mexican-Americans from sending money to their families in Mexico as punishment if Mexico doesn't pay for the wall.

Hayek said,

That's gravely serious. People don't know about this. Even if you're here legally, a US citizen, you wouldn't be able to send money.
