Key Words: Party planner’s surprise: Just Donald Trump, Jeff Epstein and 28 ‘calendar girls’

‘I have 28 girls coming. … Donald, this is supposed to be a party with VIPs. You’re telling me it’s you and Epstein?’

That’s what George Houraney, a Florida-based businessman, asked Trump back in 1992 about an event he had organized at the future president’s request, according to a report from the New York Times.

The exclusive “calendar girl” party at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, which he’d purchased seven years earlier, was apparently even more exclusive than Houraney had expected when he put it together — Jeffrey Epstein, Trump and the women. That’s it.

“I said, ‘Look, Donald, I know Jeff really well, [and] I can’t have him going after younger girls,’” the party planner recalled in the interview. “He said, ‘Look I’m putting my name on this. I wouldn’t put my name on it and have a scandal.’ ”

Houraney, who accused Trump of inappropriate behavior toward his girlfriend shortly before the 2016 election, told the Times NYT, +1.78% that he “pretty much had to ban Jeff from my events — Trump didn’t care about that.”

Clearly, Trump was an Epstein fan in those days.

“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” he told New York magazine in 2002. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”

But the president this week distanced himself from Epstein, who’s being charged with sex trafficking. He told reporters that he “knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him,” adding “I had a falling-out with him. I haven’t spoken to him in 15 years. I was not a fan of his — that I can tell you.”
