(Studio: Anderson Cooper; Chicago: Kate Bennett) Examples of the president & fist lady not travelling together to fly to Mar-A-Lago in Florida after a report in the "New Yorker" about an affair between Donald Trump & Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, whose story was paid for by the "National Enquirer" before the election, but never published, discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live interview held with story author Ronan Farrow about McDougal & Trump. [From New York, FARROW - talks about receiving McDougal's notes used in the selling of this story: that there was a machine set up to "catch & kill" this story rather than running it, how there are commonalities in the story of women {like Stormy Daniels} around Trump, how McDougal was invited to Trump events & was reimbursed by Trump for her travels during the affair, how the two met in 2006 at the Playboy mansion.]
