Did Donald Trump call himself "John Miller" and pose as a fake Trump publicist in the 1990s? | The Tylt
Donald Trump's tabloid antics continue to devour the media space. Today, the Washington Post reports that the real estate mogul posed as a spokesman for himself in the 1990s, and that he called media outlets for more than three decades pretending to be "John Miller" or "John Barron," dishing out juicy gossip about Trump's business dealings and exploits with women.
The article, titled "Donald Trump masqueraded as a spokesman to brag about himself" links to a recording of a man who claims his name is John Miller, but who sounds a lot like Trump.
In the recorded call (a 1991 interview with People magazine) "John Miller" goes on in great detail about Trump's financial success, divorce, and numerous affairs. "Actresses," Miller says in the call, "just call to see if they can go out with him and things."
The Post reported that journalists frequently encountered Trump pretending to be a PR rep for himself under the names "John Miller" and "John Barron."
In an interview on NBC's "Today," Trump vehemently denied he would pretend to be John Miller, calling the tape "one of the many scams" used against him. It wouldn't be the first time an elaborate story was constructed to be used against a politician.

Have to say, I'm hearing differences between John Miller's and Trump's accents.— Greg Sargent (@ThePlumLineGS) May 13, 2016
They don't have quite the same species of NY accent.
