Miss California: NYTimes Twisted Story to Attack Trump
Former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean Boller ripped into The New York Times Tuesday night, telling Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity that the newspaper took a passage from her book out of context to attack Donald Trump.
Boller told Hannity that reporters from the Times contacted her on several occasions for a story they were working on about Trump’s relationship with women.
The former pageant star said the reporters “weren’t going to get anything out of me negatively about” the presumptive Republican nominee so they instead published a passage from her book.

“They weren’t really happy about that. I basically wouldn’t give them the story and now they came out with their own version of it and took, you know, something out of my book and just totally twisted it and made it so negative,” she said.
“They just want to twist things and put words into other people’s mouths…”
“And I have nothing but positive things to say about Donald Trump. And that’s kind of why I came on your show today,” Boller continued. “I was fed up, Sean. I am so sick and tired of, like, the New York Times. They just want to twist things and put words into other people’s mouths and, you know what, I’m not going to put up with it anymore.”
