The New York Times’ Empty Trump ‘Exposé’ Backfires

By New York Post Editorial Board

It didn’t take long at all for that New York Times front-page “exposé” of Donald Trump’s treatment of women to start falling apart.

The Sunday article opened with a 25-year-old anecdote about Rowanne Brewer Lane. By Monday, she was ripping the Times for distorting what she’d said.

“He never made me feel like I was being demeaned in any way,” Lane told Fox News. “He never offended me in any way. He was very gracious.”

Yet the Times’ Michael Barbaro and Megan Twohey described the former model’s first meeting with Trump, during which he offered her the use of a swimsuit at his Florida estate, as “debasing” — a word she never used — and somehow a window on his “private treatment” of women.
