Pee-pee tape? OUT! Elevator tape? IN!
Here’s the latest from The Daily Beast on President Trump’s relationship with TMZ’s Harvey Levin and an alleged video tape from an elevator with damaging information on it about then candidate Trump. According to The Daily Beast, the tape was sold before the media could report on it and “Harvey Levin may have tipped off the Trump campaign”:
Uh, so, in 2016, a lawyer told TMZ her client had damaging elevator tape of Trump. Soon after, lawyer said tape was sold. Sources who talked to @LachCartwright think Harvey Levin may have tipped off the Trump campaign: https://t.co/dzLQGOGpTu

Now, here’s EVERYTHING you need to know about the tape without having to read the entire article: There’s no proof it exists:
The Daily Beast has uncovered no proof that the tape exists after interviews with more than a dozen former and current TMZ staffers and others with knowledge of the situation.
But even though there’s still no proof it exists, it’s important. Or something:
But the actions that Levin took next, these sources felt, spoke volumes about his relationship with Trump.
Never change, media:
The elevator tape. Every Trump reporter’s White Whale. https://t.co/3I2u8l6Ws4

They’re acknowledging there’s no proof of it in print, so what’s the point?

And we’re already seeing speculation that the behavior on the tape is linked to Melania’s Trump alleged disappearance:
I don't know. I've refrained from speculating until now, but 17 days is a long time. Also:
1) Trump is prone to rage when others gets media praise, which she did for "Be Best"
2) The elevator tape has entered the news
I don't know what's up, but I don't buy the initial WH story

And enough with the fake tapes already, Tom Arnold. “Either hand them over to a journalist, post them to twitter, or stfu”:
Tom Arnold teasing these tapes he reportedly has—the elevator tape; the n-word tape, whatever—for some “searching for the tapes” TV show for Vice is Peak White Dude.
Either hand them over to a journalist, post them to twitter, or stfu.
