Video: 'They spun it.' Woman featured in Times hit piece says Trump 'was a gentleman'

A woman featured in the New York Times expose on Donald Trump’s past experiences with women says the “Old Gray Lady” is full of bunk.

Appearing on Fox News Monday morning, former model Rowanne Brewer Lane spoke out against the Times article that the media set their news cycles on all weekend long.


Brewer Lane went on to say she “did not have a negative experience” with the presumptive GOP nominee. “He was a gentleman,” she said.

The Times piece entitled “Crossing the line. How Donald Trump behaved with women in public” covered several stories of encounters between the billionaire and various women in his past.

It begins with an account of Ms. Brewer Lane’s first encounter with Trump:

Donald J. Trump had barely met Rowanne Brewer Lane when he asked her to change out of her clothes.

“Donald was having a pool party at Mar-a-Lago. There were about 50 models and 30 men. There were girls in the pools, splashing around. For some reason Donald seemed a little smitten with me. He just started talking to me and nobody else.

He suddenly took me by the hand, and he started to show me around the mansion. He asked me if I had a swimsuit with me. I said no. I hadn’t intended to swim. He took me into a room and opened drawers and asked me to put on a swimsuit.”  –Rowanne Brewer Lane, former companion

Ms. Brewer Lane, at the time a 26-year-old model, did as Mr. Trump asked. “I went into the bathroom and tried one on,” she recalled. It was a bikini. “I came out, and he said, ‘Wow.’ ”

Mr. Trump, then 44 and in the midst of his first divorce, decided to show her off to the crowd at Mar-a-Lago, his estate in Palm Beach, Fla.

“He brought me out to the pool and said, ‘That is a stunning Trump girl, isn’t it?’ ” Ms. Brewer Lane said.



The fact that this account is the beginning scenario, setting the table for the Times’ article, makes Brewer Lane’s dismissal of the journalistic integrity of the article even more profound.

For his part, Trump took to Twitter to denounce the article as “lame” and a “hit piece.”

An exhaustive search of the New York Times archive failed to uncover a similar story on former President Bill Clinton’s past, or on President Barack Obama’s time in Indonesia or college years at Occidental College and Columbia University.
