Larry Flynt offers up to $1 million for 'scandalous' audio or video of Donald Trump



Larry Flynt, the man behind Hustler magazine and Hustler clubs, announced Monday that he is offering an up to $1 million bounty for any "scandalous" clips of Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Specifically, Flynt is seeking "verifiable video footage or audio recordings for use prior to the November 8 election clearly showing Donald Trump engaging in illegal activity or acting in a sexually demeaning or derogatory manner." Hustler will pay the clip's provider if the company uses it in any way, a Monday news release said.

"I have always celebrated women. Women in all shapes and sizes. To treat a woman like Mr. Trump himself has is both disappointing and unbelievable, especially coming from someone who wants to be our President," Flynt said in a statement that explained that the pornography-peddling businessman took offense at Trump's claims of respect for women.

Consequently, Flynt "has made it his mission to call these hypocrites out and provide the public with as much information about their indiscretions as possible," the statement added.

Trump's campaign was rocked earlier this month after the release of 2005 footage depicting the New York businessman making crude comments about women, bragging about groping them. Trump has apologized for those comments, but some members of his own party called for him to drop out of the presidential race.

According to Hustler, Flynt made similar offers in 2007 and in 1998 for any prominent member of public office.

1. I'm pretty sure that something pretty powerful might be coming out, soon. Very soon.

Michael Moore sent out a pretty cryptic tweet, the other day, about something he was working on and more would be revealed in about 48 hours. That was Saturday, I think.

5. I'd love to see a bombardment from many sources

Which could possibly lead to something wonderful, like a complete Trump meltdown, in front of cameras. Picture lots of spittle and drool.

The thing with Drumpf is you often cannot tell where the line between fiction and reality lies.

25. The fake ones show a stat for 'favorites', but if you look at a legit one...

that stat is called 'likes'. (It's in the middle of the message box.)

24. The only thing that would sink Trump with his base...

 

is a video of a threesome with the Clintons followed by him praising Obamacare and saying AR-15 owners are queer.

The bar is that low, and even then a significant number of them would swear it's a forgery even as Donald Trump made the rounds and offered a running commentary of the video and his performance.

29. Larry Flynt is no friend of women or ally of Democrats.

Magazines like his exploit women and promote body shaming. He's as pathetic as Trump.

31. He has endorsed Hillary

 

And has been a champion of many progressive causes, such as gay marriage and LGBT rights, before the mainstream came around to doing so.
