Donald Trump showed people at a shiva photos of naked women, according to an attendee of the Jewish mourning event.
Jennifer Weisselberg, the former daughter-in-law of the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, recounted the event in a New Yorker article published Friday. She said that it was the first time she met Trump, before she married Barry Weisselberg in October 2004, and that it took place at the shiva at Allen Weisselberg’s house in Wantagh, a town on Long Island.
“Trump showed up in a limousine and blurted out, ‘This is where my C.F.O. lives? It’s embarrassing!'” The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer wrote. “Then, Jennifer recalled, Trump showed various shivah attendees photographs of naked women with him on a yacht.”
The shiva period lasts seven days and follows the burial of a close family member. It does not involve nude photographs.
Manhattan prosecutors are trying to “flip” Allen Weisselberg into cooperating with a wide-ranging investigation into Trump’s financial affairs, The Washington Post reported last week. Weisselberg has managed the finances of both the Trump Organization and the Trump family for decades.
Jennifer Weisselberg has spoken to prosecutors in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, according to The New Yorker. She described Allen Weisselberg’s life as revolving around Trump.
“His whole worth is ‘Does Donald like me today?’ It’s his whole life, his core being. He’s obsessed. He has more feelings and adoration for Donald than for his wife,” she told the magazine.
She told The New Yorker that after sharing the naked photos at the shiva, Trump began flirting with her. She said her soon-to-be father-in-law humored his boss.
“He didn’t stand up for me!” she told The New Yorker.
A representative for Jennifer Weisselberg declined to comment. Representatives for Allen Weisselberg and Trump didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
