June 15: In a recent interaction on the “The Daily Show” 50 year old Hollywood actress Salma Hayek revisited an old rumored story on how President Donald Trump asked her out on a date even though he knew Hayek was dating someone at the time. 

It all started when Hayek was cold at an event and Trump, who just happened to be sitting behind her and her then boyfriend, immediately put his coat around her shoulders.


“I turn around and my boyfriend — so charming, so nice — he said hello [to Trump],” she recalled. “[Trump] said, ‘I’m sorry, your girlfriend, I saw she was cold.’ And then he kept talking to my boyfriend.”

Trump sparked up a little friendship with Hayek’s boyfriend that night and eventually told the couple they should stay in his hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, if they were ever in town. He asked for their phone numbers.

“Trump never talked to my boyfriend again,” Hayek said, although he rung up Hayek and tried to get her to cheat with him.

“He’s inviting me out, and I’m like, ‘What about my boyfriend? Am I crazy? Are you asking me out? You know I have a boyfriend,’” she explained, adding that Trump responded with, “‘He’s not good enough for you. He’s not important, he’s not big enough for you. You have to go out with me.’”

Program presenter Trevor Noah then joked that Trump was right. Hayek did not end up with that boyfriend and instead married French billionaire François-Henri Pinault in 2009.
