So, Jonah Peretti, the CEO of Buzzfeed, tweeted the following a few hours ago:
Surprised Ivanka would be shocked by lewd language. I met her once & she casually said: "I've never seen a mulatto cock, but I'd like to!" https://t.co/WrgCoM0MGK

In a phone call with BuzzFeed News, Peretti recounted a conversation with Trump at Tropical 128, a dive bar in Manhattan around eight-to-10 years ago. He says about five other people were there.
“She was saying how she first said she had never seen an uncircumcised cock and then she said, ‘I’ve never seen a mulatto cock. There’s lots of cocks I’ve never seen,’ or something like that,” he reportedly said.
“Of course, it was memorable just because of the use of the lewd language and racist language. It was also memorable being in the environment of being… in New York, sometimes liberal and progressive people make comments meant as jokes and not necessarily earnest. I didn’t know how to take it.”
Peretti said he had not shared the memory before because it was “said in private.” He shared them now because they were relevant to the article about lewd comments.
In a statement Ivanka Trump has denied the story, saying, “I am not sure if this was meant to be a joke,” she said, “but in case there is any ambiguity, this is a complete and total lie.”
