We already know GOP nominee Donald Trump likes to stroll through dressing rooms full of naked women because he told us so, but that also apparently includes dressing rooms full of naked teenage girls.
Trump told radio host Howard Stern in 2005 that he barges into the dressing rooms at the Miss USA pageant because he owns the pageant and he can get away with doing that, but a former Miss Teen USA contestant says he walked into their rooms, too.
“Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half naked changing into our bikinis,” Dixon recalled. “He just came strolling right in. There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Other girls were naked.”
She said she and her fellow contestants were put in an awkward position when “the owner come waltzing in when we were naked or half naked in a very physically vulnerable position and then to have the pressure of the people that worked for him telling us to go fawn all over him, go walk up to him, talk to him, get his attention.”
To be clear, this includes girls as young as 15.
Buzzfeed spoke with four other women who told them Trump entered their dressing rooms when they were Miss Teen contestants.
“I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,’” said Mariah Billado, the former Miss Vermont Teen USA.
Trump, she recalled, said something like, “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”
Three other women, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of getting engulfed in a media firestorm, also remembered Trump entering the dressing room while girls were changing. Two of them said the girls rushed to cover their bodies, with one calling it “shocking” and “creepy.” The third said she was clothed and introduced herself to Trump.
There's a fairly well established pattern now demonstrating that Trump has an eye for underage girls, including his own daughter.
I suppose that raises a lot of questions about beauty pageants for minors.
