Trump has been known to be really creepy towards women, quite a few have come forward with horrifying stories about what he’s tried to do. To join those stories, NBC journalist Katy Tur just published a book that retells the time Trump came out of nowhere and tried to do what he does best.
Trump has always tried to use his position of power to take advantage of women. Back in 2015, Donald Trump was forced to sell the Miss Universe Organization after his disgusting comments about Mexicans. During the two decades when he was the owner of the show, however, he was able to have contact with almost 4,000 contestants.
Allegations that Trump walked into the Miss Teen USA dressing room while the as young as 15-year-old beauty queens were in various stages of undress came forward just after the damaging videotape where Trump joked about sexually assaulting women.
“I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here.'” said Mariah Billado, Miss Teen Vermont 1997.
Another time, Trump allegedly waltzed right into the Miss USA changing room in 2001 according to former Miss Arizona Tasha Dixon.
“He just came strolling right in,” Dixon said. “There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Others girls were naked. Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half-naked changing into our bikinis.”
It seems his sick attempts at harassing women wasn’t limited to beauty pageant contestants, either.
What’s Happening Now:
NBC journalist Katy Tur realesed a book this week that gives an inside look into a lok of aspects about her life, including the time Trump popped up and kissed her without her consent.
From The Huffington Post:
In one chapter of Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History, released Tuesday, Tur writes about not just being targeted in Trump’s campaign speeches ― which she was, a handful of times ― but about one incident that took place with Trump before a segment on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” with Joe Scarborough.
“Before I know what’s happening,” she wrote, “his hands are on my shoulders and his lips are on my cheek. My eyes widen. My body freezes. My heart stops.”
Immediately after Trump ― who had repeatedly referred to Tur as “Little Katy” throughout his campaign ― kissed her face, Tur’s first thought was that she hoped no one saw it.
“Fuck,” she wrote. “I hope the cameras didn’t see that. My bosses are never going to take me seriously.”
For his part, Trump responded to the release of Tur’s book in standard form: a tweet to his 38 million followers in which he lambasted her book as “FAKE NEWS.”
Fascinating to watch people writing books and major articles about me and yet they know nothing about me & have zero access. #FAKE NEWS!

Trump, you’re the “king” of Twitter, but you couldn’t even get that hashtag right? She must have hit a nerve…
