NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–October 28, 2016. Today, Hillary for America is releasing a new video pairing Donald Trump’s own words with the true experiences of pageant contestants. In 2005, Trump told Howard Stern he would go backstage before beauty pageants where women were “standing there with no clothes.” Multiple women, both former Miss USA as well as Miss Teen USA contestants, have come forward to corroborate this behavior. As one former Miss Teen USA contestant told Buzzfeed, “At the time, you’re a teenager, you’re intimidated – it’s Donald Trump, he runs the pageant.”
As Trump infamously said on the radio show, “I sort of get away with things like that.”
“He’s also on tape bragging to the radio personality Howard Stern that he would routinely barge into the dressing rooms of beauty pageant contestants while they were undressed, to, quote, ‘inspect’ the women. That was his word. He was ‘inspecting’ them. ‘I sort of get away with that,’ he said. And maybe the most alarming part of what he said is that he admitted he did it with teenage contestants. Can you imagine?
“This is a man who relishes making women feel terrible about themselves, in every possible way. Someone who thinks belittling and objectifying women makes him a bigger man. He goes after dignity and self-worth of women, and I don’t think there’s a woman anywhere who doesn’t know what that feels like.
“So this is who Donald Trump is. This is how he speaks. This is how he thinks. this is what he does. Now, it’s time for all of us to stand up and say: This is not who we are. We are better than that. We are Americans.”
