President Trump was reportedly ‘obsessed’ with translator’s breasts during Japanese PM Shinzo Abe's visit
Politics apparently wasn't President Trump's only focus when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the White House last month.
While Abe was in town, Trump allegedly told a friend that he was "obsessed" with a translator's breasts, according to Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter.
"He expressed this in his own, fragrant fashion," Carter wrote in his most recent editor's letter, published Wednesday.
It's not clear how, or from whom, Carter learned of the alleged remark, and he did not immediately return a request for comment from the Daily News.
A White House spokeswoman declined to comment on Carter's claim.
Carter and Trump have a long history of trading jabs.
President-elect Trump lashed out against Vanity Fair in December after the fashion and politics magazine published a scolding review of his Trump Tower steakhouse.
"Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine. Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!" Trump tweeted hours after the review was published.
Ironically, the outburst prompted a massive surge in Vanity Fair subscriptions, according to circulation statistics. A spokesperson for the publication's parent company, Conde Nast, claimed at the time that it received a record-breaking number of new subscriptions thanks to Trump's fuming tweet.
Repaying the presumably unintended favor, Vanity Fair tweeted, "Vanity Fair: Way up, big success, alive! Subscribe today!"
Carter, for his part, has blasted Trump in every single editor's letter published since Election Day.
Headlines for those letters include "Donald Trump: A Pillar of Ignorance and Certitude," "Trump's White House: The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight" and the most recent one, containing the "breast" allegations, "The Trump Presidency Is Already A Joke."
