After trying to slime former Miss Universe Alicia Machado by saying she appeared in a sex video (she didn't), Donald Trump may have some 'splaining of his own to do. Or maybe not, who knows?

It seems The Donald had a cameo appearance in a Playboy softcore video back in 2000. I'm no prude, but can you just imagine what kind of backlash Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton would get if they did this?

Trump’s role in the porn is relatively benign and centers around him breaking a bottle of champagne on a Playboy-branded limo while several of the playmates are visiting New York City. BuzzFeed News obtained the footage from the online-only Buffalo, New York–based adult video store Cinema Cornucopia.

Other scenes from the film feature fully nude women posing in sexual positions, dancing naked, touching themselves while naked, touching each other sensually, rubbing honey on themselves, taking a bath, and dressing in costumes.

The VHS cover of the video reads: “From luxuriating in a warm, soapy tub, to reveling at an exclusive night club, Carol and Darlene bare their sex appeal and lead you on a sensual journey of discovery.”

On a bus tour hunt for the 2000 Playmate of the Year around the country, the Playmates travel to different cities including New York, Las Vegas, Chicago, Nashville, and San Diego. Trump welcomes the Playmates in New York and pops a bottle of champagne to kick off the New York stop. Trump then pours it over the Playboy bunny logo.

“Beauty is beauty, and let’s see what happens with New York,” Trump says.

So here's the thing. The Republican Party actually has a platform plank declaring pornography a public health crisis. Do we all remember the infamous Porn Hearings in the 80s when the GOP was working so hard to capture the evangelical vote forever? (Yeah, thanks for that, Tipper Gore!) Of course we do.

And here we have the Republican Party nominee starring in what can only be described as soft-core pornography. Amazing, but absolutely predictable.

Trump thinks of women as objects, something to be looked at and admired for the pleasure they give men. He does not think of them as people with ideas or ambition or hopes. Women are here to pleasure men, in his mind. Period.

That's what makes this ongoing story so awful. Not the 3 am tweets, but the ongoing abuse and objectification of people who comprise over half of the United States population.

Oh, and did I mention that they vote?
