WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH...:

WaPo: Trump hung up when asked about spokesman (Jesse Byrnes, 5/13/16, The Hill) 

Hours after denying a Washington Post report that said he masqueraded as his own spokesman decades ago, Donald Trump on Friday reportedly hung up on reporters from the newspaper asking questions about the controversy.

Post reporters were 44 minutes into a phone interview Friday afternoon discussing the presumptive GOP presiedntial nominee's finances when they asked Trump if he ever employed a spokesman by the name of John Miller.

"The phone went silent, then dead," the newspaper reported. "When the reporters called back and reached Trump's secretary, she said, 'I heard you got disconnected. He can't take the call now. I don't know what happened.'"

The story published on Friday included audio of a man with a similar tone and cadence to Trump claiming to be John Miller, a spokesman for the businessman, during a 1991 phone call with People magazine reporter Sue Carswell.

He'd hang up on that 3am phone call too.
