Ivanka Trump has insisted that the claim she wanted to see “a mulatto c*ck” is a “total lie.”Buzzfeed CEO Jonah Peretti had tweeted that Ivanka Trump made the comment to him in a bar several years ago, but the daughter of the Republican candidate is having none of it.Peretti’s tweeted the claim after her response to her father’s recorded lewd comments about women, which she called “jarring.”“That’s not language consistent with any conversation I’ve ever had with him, certainly, or any conversation I’ve overheard,” she said at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit. “So it was a bit jarring for me to hear.”“Surprised Ivanka would be shocked by lewd language,” Peretti tweeted. “I met her once & she casually said: ‘I’ve never seen a mulatto c*ck, but I’d like to.”He said that conversation took place in Manhattan dive bar Tropical 128 about 8-10 years ago, with five or so other people present, including his wife Andrea Harner.“She was saying how she first said she had never seen an uncircumcised c*ck and then she said, ‘I’ve never seen a mulatto c*ck. There’s lots of c*cks I’ve never seen,’ or something like that,” Peretti said.“Of course, it was memorable just because of the use of the lewd language and racist language.“In New York, sometimes liberal and progressive people make comments meant as jokes and not necessarily earnest. I didn’t know how to take it.”
Peretti’s wife confirmed: “I was there and did hear it but have no comment beyond that.”Ivanka Trump firmly denied ever saying it: “I am not sure if this was meant to be a joke, but in case there is any ambiguity, this is a complete and total lie.”Her father’s spokesman Jason Miller had even stronger words for it:
“What a little man and a disgraceful liar to smear Ivanka Trump like this. It shows just how far the media will go to tear down Mr. Trump’s family, and we demand an apology.”
The minor scandal erupted just hours before last night’s presidential debate, where Trump was on the offensive, trying to link Hillary Clinton to the murders of gay men in Saudi Arabia and Qatar – murders actually carried out by ISIS.
