Miss Teen USA pageant girls come forward about Donald Trump's inappropriate behavior

Donald Trump's perversion isn't even limited to women who are of legal consenting age.

A number of former contestants in his Miss Teen USA pageants have come forward saying Trump would let himself into their dressing rooms while they were changing. Some of them were as young as 15.

The four women who made the claims were part of the 1997 Miss Teen USA pageant. Three of them spoke anonymously, while Mariah Billado, a former Miss Teen Vermont USA, allowed her name to be used.

"I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, 'Oh my god, there’s a man in here,'" Billado recalled. Trump, meanwhile, said "something like 'Don't worry, ladies, I've seen it all before.'"

It doesn't seem unlikely that this is exactly what occurred since Trump has admitted to going right on into the dressing room at the Miss USA pageant (the one for adults, not that it makes it any less disgusting).

In a 2005 episode of The Howard Stern Show, Trump bragged that seeing the contestants naked was just one of the perks he enjoyed as owner of the pageant.

"I’ll go backstage before a show, and everyone’s getting dressed and ready and everything else," he said. "And you know, no men are anywhere. And I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant. And therefore, I’m inspecting it."

He continued, "You know they’re standing there with no clothes. And you see these incredible-looking women. And so I sort of get away with things like that."

From a man who openly brags about sexually assaulting women, this shouldn't be a surprise. But when will Trump's actions be enough for his remaining supporters to jump ship? Is ogling undressed, underage girls enough? Somehow, I doubt it.
