BREAKING: Trump Accused Of Barging Into Beauty Pageant Dressing Room, Ogling Nude Teen Girls
Donald Trump Is A Pervert
Donald Trump barged in on naked teenagers during beauty pageants, entering the dressing room while contestants, some as young as 14, were changing clothes.
Mariah Billado, former Miss Vermont Teen USA, recalls the shock of seeing Trump in the dressing room.
“I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,’” said Billado.
Trump’s response was, in typical Trumpian fashion, both bizarre and cavalier.
“Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”
The dressing room for the pageant was one large, long and open space. There were 51 stations – one for each of the contestants, who ranged in age from 14 to 19 – lining the walls. Contestants did not have any sort of partitioning to shield their stations or give them any privacy, and the rest of the space was full of pageant personnel, such as stylists and crew members. Cutting through the middle of the open space were racks of clothing.
And it was into this space that Donald Trump, as owner of the pageant, felt entitled to enter. Just let that sink in. A grown man, with a daughter the same age as some of these teenage girls, a daughter who was actually co-hosting the event, felt as though it were his right to enter the dressing room, knowing that those young girls – because at age 14, they were certainly not women – would be naked.
And Trump Admits It
And Trump has admitted to this sort of behavior before, during one of his many disgusting interviews with Howard Stern. In fact, the GOP candidate, who owned three major pageants until last year, openly bragged about entering the dressing rooms of the pageant contestants, saying that it was basically a perk of ownership.
“I’ll tell you the funniest is that I’ll go backstage before a show and everyone’s getting dressed. No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it. … ‘Is everyone OK?’ You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”
Trump has a strange sense of humor. Listen to the audio below.
But until the recent allegations made by former teenage contestants, this behavior was assumed to apply only to the pageants held for adult women. Even as gross as Trump is, many assumed that his perverse behavior did not extend to contestants who were the same age – or younger – than his daughter.
The Teens Were Naked And ‘Intimidated’
Three other women from that pageant have come forward, but asked to remain anonymous, not wanting to get caught up in the media tidal waves that come with a Trump scandal. They also remember Donald entering the dressing room, while teenage girls were nude. Two spoke about how the girls tried to cover their bodies, with one of the former contestants said Trump’s appearance was “shocking” and “creepy.” The third said she happened to be clothed, and introduced herself to Trump.
One woman, who was 17 at the same, recalled feeling intimidated. “At the time, you’re a teenager, you’re intimidated – it’s Donald Trump, he runs the pageant.” She said it felt as though Trump believed “it was his given right” to enter a dressing room full of naked teens, “because he owned the pageant.”
The contestants shared a fondness for Ivanka Trump. Trump’s daughter would also come into the changing room to chat with the girls, which was appropriate, as she was only 15 herself. When Billado told Ivanka about her father entering the room while the girls were naked, Ivanka answered, “Yeah, he does that.”
Donald Trump not only entered a room full of vulnerable and naked teens who happened to be the same age (or younger) than his 15-year-old daughter, he did it with such impunity that Ivanka knew about it. And it was no big deal.
“I remember it shocking me,” Billado said. “I barely let anybody except my sister see me getting dressed.”
Billado said Trump’s willful entering of the changing room as “more of a pompous ‘I own this place’ rather than a perverted thing.”
Even so, she said, “I would never let my daughter run for a pageant that he owns.”
The allegations have surfaced due to discussions in a private Facebook group devoted to former contestants of the 1997 pageant. The women began discussing it after it was reported that an adult contestant claimed Trump walked into the changing room at that pageant.
Thirty-four of the 51 contestants declined to talk about the experience, or could not be reached. And of the 15 contestants who were interviewed, none accused Trump of saying anything sexually explicit, or attempting to make physical contact with any of them in the dressing room. Eleven of the women say they don’t remember Trump entering the dressing room, but concede that they simply may not have noticed in all the flurry that goes on behind closed doors at a pageant.
Others were dubious, and dismissed the accusations as political.
“They’re probably lying because they are voting for Hillary Clinton,” said one contestant.
Contestants Say This Is Not Political
Billado denies that, saying she doesn’t support either candidate. Another stated she was undecided but would not vote for the GOP nominee, and another said she is a Democrat. Yet another said she was not voting for the Republican candidate but wouldn’t elaborate, stating “this is not about politics.”
She added, “When he started running for president, this is one of the first things I thought about: ‘Oh, gross, this guy walked in on us in the pageant.’ Girls were just scrambling to grab stuff, whatever garments they had.”
Neither the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization have responded to requests for comment. The Miss Universe Organization, which runs Miss Teen USA, has declined to comment.
