Watch (below) as CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield asked conservative businessman Donald Trump’s campaign a very personal question: if his wife Melania Trump was First Lady, would her “racy photo spreads” be a problem?

Mrs. Trump is a former model, and CNN played a clip where she discusses immigration policies and shares details about life in the Trump family.

Uncomfortably, Banfield tried to compliment Mrs. Trump:

“There’s no question, Melania Knauss-Trump is a very bright woman, speaks several languages. She’s articulate. She’s lovely.”

Then Banfield asked about her centerfolds, especially from the British edition of GQ Magazine, where Mrs. Trump posed nude on her husband’s jet in 2000.

She asked:

“But she also has done some pretty racy photo spreads in the past,” Banfield said. “I mean, Maxim magazine-styled racy photograph spreads. I think it’s hard to get your mind around the first lady living in the White House with those photographs out there.”

Trump’s step-daughter Ivanka Trump also posed for the German edition of Maxim in May 2009.
