Information has now surfaced concerning an article entitled, “Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private” that was published by the NY Times this past Saturday (May 14, 2016).
According to Kitty Bennett, a research assistant who works for the New York Times, Michael Barbaro and Megan Twohey were ordered by Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr., Chairman of the Board of the NY Times, to dig up whatever dirt they could find on Donald Trump and publish it.
“Arthur came in to the newsroom on Monday with very clear instructions to everyone, we need to destroy Donald Trump. If you people can’t find anything on him, I will hire some people who will….”, said Bennett.
In closed-door meetings on Tuesday afternoon at the Times, numerous ideas were discussed about what ‘direction’ they should go to find something “incriminating” about Trump.
At the end of the meeting, Barbaro and Twohey agreed that the “best way to attack Trump” would be to write an article that would anger woman voters that according to some polls are largely unfavorable to Trump.
“Michael and Megan discussed paying some prostitutes to claim they had slept with Trump, but later scrapped the idea in favor of interviewing some of Trump’s former girlfriends and employees,” said Bennett.
Another source close to the story revealed that on Friday of this past week, both Barbaro and Twohey were “frantic” because the former girlfriends and female employees or Trump’s they had interviewed did not have anything “bad to say” about Trump.
“They were upset. Michael was yelling so loud in a closed door meeting room, that the whole floor could hear him. Megan walked out of the room later and it was obvious that she had been crying,” Bennett said.
Bennett indicated that late Friday evening she had heard rumors that the story was going to be scrapped until Barbaro and Twohey could find someone with an “axe to grind” against Trump.
Bennett further stated that she was “blown away” when she read the embellishments in their published article on Saturday, further elaborating by saying that, “none of the woman they interviewed said anything remotely like what they wrote in that pack of lies….”
Regarding Trump’s former girlfriend Rowanne Brewer Lane, Bennett stated that, “they totally twisted her words around in to one lie after another. They made Trump sound like a pervert.”
On a Monday morning Fox and Friends show, Trump’s former girlfriend Rowanne Brewer Lane came to his defense, saying The New York Times “spun” comments she made to the paper about her first meeting with the billionaire businessman.
“I did not have a negative experience with Donald Trump… I don’t appreciate them making it look like that,” Brewer said.
The former model, who dated Trump briefly after meeting him at a Mar-a-Lago pool party featured prominently in the Times piece, says the paper misrepresented a story she shared about how the billionaire businessman asked her to change into a swimsuit shortly after meeting her.
“Actually, it was very upsetting. I was not happy to read it at all. 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,” Brewer stated.
Describing Brewers first encounter with Trump Brewer said that
“We seemed to get along in conversation nicely, and it just very normally and naturally evolved into a conversation. We started walking around the mansion. He started showing me the architecture. We were having a very nice conversation, and we got into a certain part of it and he asked me if I had a swimsuit. I said I didn’t. I had not really planned on swimming.
He asked me if I wanted one. I said, ‘Okay, sure.’ And I change into one, and the part where I went back out to the pool party and he made a comment –
‘Now that’s a stunning Trump girl right there’ – I was actually flattered by. I didn’t feel like it was a demeaning situation or comment at all, and that’s what I told the Times, and they spun it completely differently.”
“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.”
Asked whether Trump ever mistreated women, Brewer Lane said, “Not that I’ve ever seen. Absolutely without a doubt, no.”
Bennett indicates, “There is no doubt that their hit piece will not be their last attempt to destroy Trump.” There are definitely more articles coming…who knows what crap they will try to spin next.
