Donald Trump and Studio 54

We live in interesting times — thanks largely to the long-shot presidential victory of Donald Trump. But Trump, as loud as he is, wasn’t always such a source of fascination. For instance, back in his Studio 54 days, Trump is said to have been considered “boring.”

Mark Fleischman, a former owner of Manhattan’s legendary Studio 54 nightclub, is set to release a tell-all book about his cocaine-fueled nights with celebrities at the club. In it, he has a few things to say about our real-estate-developer-in-chief.

“Ian [Schrager] painted a glossy picture of Studio 54, but this is the real story. There were drugs all over the place — that’s what fueled it. I partied with the people who loved cocaine,” Fleischman tells the New York Post. “Belushi used to freebase and would get extremely aggressive with the clientele and staff. Robin ­Williams would get very energetic and funny.”

But while the celebs danced and snorted their way into oblivion, our teetotaling president abstained, giving him a bit of reputation as a square in the club, Fleischman says.

“He never touched drink or drugs. He liked looking at beautiful women, even though he was married to Ivana,” Fleischman says. “Trump wasn’t a lot of fun — when you’re in a crowd drinking and drugging and one person isn’t, that person seems boring.” [NYP]Christopher Cameron
