Miss California: The New York Times Twisted My Words About Trump

The New York Times published a piece over the weekend focusing on presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s behavior in past private relationships with women. Since its release, women featured in the piece have come out to complain that their words were intentionally “twisted” and “spun” to make Mr. Trump look bad. Trump, too, has called the story “discredited.”

On Tuesday, another woman came out to push back on the article. Former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean Boller appeared on Fox News’ “The Sean Hannity Show” to rip the Times for twisting her words.

Boller explained that she has nothing but positive things to say about Mr. Trump, so instead, the Times cherry-picked a passage from her book to portray Trump in a negative light. The beauty queen says she’s simply “fed up.”

“They just want to twist things and put words into other people’s mouths and, you know what, I’m not going to put up with it anymore.”

“They weren’t really happy” that they couldn’t get anything “negative” about Trump out of her, she explained. “I basically wouldn’t give them the story and now they came out with their own version of it and took, you know, something out of my book and just totally twisted it and made it so negative.”

“And I have nothing but positive things to say about Donald Trump. And that’s kind of why I came on your show today,” she continued. “I was fed up, Sean. I am so sick and tired of, like, The New York Times. They just want to twist things and put words into other people’s mouths and, you know what, I’m not going to put up with it anymore.”

Other women have come out against the story as fabrication. As The Daily Wire reported on Monday, Rowanne Brewer Lane, an ex-girlfriend of Trump, took to Fox News to lament the spin served up by the Times in the same piece.

“[The New York Times] did take quotes from what I said, and they put a negative connotation on it. They spun it to where it appeared negative. I did not have a negative experience with Donald Trump, and I don’t appreciate them making it look like I was saying it was a negative experience, because it was not,” said Brewer.

“He never made me feel like I was being demeaned in any way. He never offended me in any way. He was very gracious,” she added. “I saw him around all types of people, all types of women. He was very kind, thoughtful, generous. He was a gentlemen.”

Trump, not one to keep quiet, called for author Michael Barbaro to resign in light of the now “discredited” piece. Trump was also upset that Barbaro previously “tweeted badly” about him.
