The story begins with Rowanne Brewer Lane, who as a 26-year-old model posed for Trump in a bikini.
On Monday morning, Brewer Lane appeared on "Fox and Friends" to dispute the Times' framing of her account.
"Actually, it was very upsetting. I was not happy to read it at all," Brewer Lane said. "Well, because The New York Times told us several times that they would make sure that my story that I was telling came across. They promised several times that they would do it accurately. They told me several times and my manager several times that it would not be a hit piece and that my story would come across the way that I was telling it and honestly, and it absolutely was not."
Asked what the reporters got wrong, Brewer Lane said they took her quotes and "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 that I was saying that it was a negative experience because it was not," Brewer Lane said.That is a great thing to come out because it confirms my reading of the piece. Far from being journalism, it was a spin piece. If she said Trump walked on water, the New York Times would report he cannot swim.
Brewer dated Trump after Bikinigate, or whatever these fools called it.
"That's correct. Yes, and he was never -- he never made me feel like I was being demeaned in any way. He never offended me in any way. He was very gracious. I saw him around all types of people, all types of women. He was very kind, thoughtful, generous, you know. He was a gentleman," Brewer said.
This is a warning to the Social Justice Warriors in the media. Everyone who has attacked Mister Trump in this campaign wound up on the wrong end of the stick. He defeated the Republican Party. The Democratic Party is next. And the politicized media -- the Super PAC of the Left as Cruz would call it -- is going down with them.
And most of the nation will cheer.
For now, the New York Times owes an apology and a correction to Rowanne Brewer Lane.
I will allow readers to decide whether The Donald was wrong to say, "Wow" when he saw her in a bikini.
UPDATE: From Camille Paglia:
The supreme irony of the Times’ vacuous coverage is that the early 1990s banquet-hall photograph of the unmarried Rowanne Brewer and Donald Trump illustrating it is the sexiest picture published in the mainstream media in years. Not since Melissa Forde’s brilliant 2012 Instagram portraits of a pensive Rihanna smoking a cigarillo as she lounged half-nude in a fur-trimmed parka next to a fireplace have I seen anything so charismatically sensual.
Small and blurry in the print edition, the Brewer-Trump photo in online digital format positively pops with you-are-there luminosity. Her midnight-blue evening dress opulently cradling her bare shoulders, Rowanne is all flowing, glossy hair, ample, cascading bosom, and radiant, lushly crimson Rita Hayworth smile. The hovering Trump, bedecked with the phallic tongue of a violet Celtic floral tie, is in Viking mode, looking like a triumphant dragon on the thrusting prow of a long boat. “To the victor belong the spoils!” I said to myself in admiration, as seductive images from Babylon to Paris flashed through my mind. Yes, here is all the sizzling glory of hormonal sex differentiation, which the grim commissars of campus gender studies will never wipe out!
The news media needs to remove that stick from its you-know-where.
