Karen Pence: I Love The Way Trump Treats Young Women
Second Lady Karen Pence told a Minnesota audience that she loves the way President Donald Trump treats young women, New York Times correspondent Katie Rogers reported.
“Tonight, in Minnesota, state the campaign really wants to win, @SecondLady is on stage praising POTUS. She says she likes how he treats young women and sees the respect he has for his daughters,” Rogers tweeted.
“As a mom, I was all in,” Mrs. Pence said, after she watched Trump with her daughter, Charlotte.
Pence’s remarks come despite Trump boasting that he would “grab” women genitals and kiss them without their consent. He also bragged about walking into the backstage changing rooms at the Miss USA pageant to look at the half-naked girls there. It came in a 2005 interview with Howard Stern, where Trump bragged about what he would do to look at the teens, some as young as 15.
“Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half-naked changing into our bikinis,” said Tasha Dixon, a former Miss USA contestant. “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.”
“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 described to Stern in 2005.
The comments also come hours after a woman came forward with a new allegation of sexual assault against Trump.
He has been accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment by dozens of women and paid off multiple women for affairs he had while was married to Melania Trump.
