Frequently, Trump would toss out finalists and replace them with others he preferred. “If there were too many women of color, he would make changes,” a Miss Universe staffer later noted. Another Miss Universe staffer recalled, “He often thought a woman was too ethnic or too dark-skinned. He had a particular type of woman he thought was a winner. Others were too ethnic. He liked a type. There was Olivia Culpo, Dayanara Torres [the 1993 winner], and, no surprise, East European women.” On occasion, according to this staffer, Trump would reject a woman “who had snubbed his advances.”
At what point do we all turn to the person next to us and agree ‘hey, Donald Trump is a villain and he doesn’t care if any of us live or die’? Are we close yet? At the very least, we’re all cool with calling that man a white supremacist, right?
Every day, there is a new story about Donald Trump being an awful disgusting human. Not once have I woken up to a story like ‘Donald Trump helps an old lady cross the street’. It’s always more like’ Donald Trump shoves old lady to the ground because she isn’t hot and then says the n-word even though she was white’.
Paula Shugart, the president of the Miss Universe Organization, was apparently able to sometimes change Trump’s mind about a contestant by telling him that “she was a princess and married to a football player,” according to one staffer.
Cool, Trump only cares about women of color only if they’re princesses or WAGS. My man literally gets all of his social cues from Disney movies and E! reality shows. That’s your president.
While we’re on the subject of Miss Universe, let’s talk about the fact that Trump used to casually walk through the changing rooms at Miss TEEN USA pageants. This piece of shit was walking around ‘inspecting’ 15-year-old girls bodies like it was no big deal. That’s your president.
Happy International Women’s Day.
