President Donald Trump slept there — and a reporter for the outlet the president regularly refers to as "inept" and "the failing New York Times" shelled out $815 to do just that.

Taking advantage of the new Airbnb listing of Trump's childhood home in Queens, N.Y., Times reporter Andy Newman reported he rented the home for a sleepover along with his wife and 12-year-old daughter.

The two-story, Tudor-style house was built by Trump's father, Fred, in 1940 in Jamaica Estates and was where the president lived until age 4, but neither the host nor current owner have any connection to the Trump empire, Newman reported.

The base rent for a night at the home is $725, Newman reported.

"It had been a restless night," he wrote. "I had fallen asleep in the bedroom where, according to a plaque on the wall, 'President Donald J. Trump was likely conceived.'"

The man behind the Trump Airbnb is developer Michael Davis, who bought the house in 2016 for under $1.4 million, flipped it for $2.14 million and is now leasing it from an anonymous current owner for $4,000 a month, the Times reported.

Reporters from Newsweek and the New York Post have also shelled out to sleep there, Newman noted.

"From practically every surface gazed the visage of the adult Donald J. Trump," Newman wrote — from photos of Trump in the 1980s, to a framed People magazine cover that says "At Home With the Trumps!" to multiple paperback copies of "Art of the Deal," to a Warhol-inspired print of cartoon-colored Donalds, to a life-size cardboard cutout of Trump propped up next to a flat-screen TV.

Newman reported, however, in the dining room, a large American flag folded across the table is in apparent violation of the United States Flag Code.
