Now that Donald Trump is the last man standing, the press has suddenly remembered all of his past public life. Welcome to being the presumptive nominee, Donald Trump.

The Washington Post has dug up old audio from 1991. This is a phone conversation with a “John Miller” who is acting as a Trump PR spokesman… but the voice and speech patterns sound very familiar.

A recording obtained by The Washington Post captures what New York reporters and editors who covered Trump’s early career experienced in the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s: calls from Trump’s Manhattan office that resulted in conversations with “John Miller” or “John Barron” — public-relations men who sound precisely like Trump himself — who indeed are Trump, masquerading as an unusually helpful and boastful advocate for himself, according to the journalists and several of Trump’s top aides.

Some reporters found the calls from Miller or Barron disturbing or even creepy; others thought they were just examples of Trump being playful. Today, as the presumptive Republican nominee for president faces questions about his attitudes toward women, what stands out to some who received those calls is Trump’s characterization of women who he portrayed as drawn to him sexually.

Is it Trump’s voice on the line? You make the call. But it seems like it was pretty common knowledge among the press, back when this was happening, that it was Trump who was calling reporters and giving them a pseudonym in order to toot his own horn.

Trump now denies that it was him on the phone.


Of course, there is a paper trail of Trump using aliases.


And says that he doesn’t want to talk about issues from 25 years ago. After all, who wants to talk about stuff from the 1990’s?


Ouch.

Out of all the things that Trump has admitted to, THIS is the thing he’s going to vigorously deny? I honestly thought Trump was smarter than that. He should have bragged about being able to play the press like a fiddle back in the day, when the Washington Post broke the story. Instead, he sounds oddly flat and desperate to avoid talking about this. Why?

UPDATE 4:40 EDT:
The paper trail on the alias use keeps growing.


How very…. Clintonesque.
