Brewer Lane on MSNBC

A woman featured in a Sunday New York Times piece detailing presidential candidate Donald Trump’s history with women took issue with the story on Monday, saying she never had a bad experience with the billionaire and does not believe he ever mistreated women.

She attended Herndon High School, graduating in 1982.

Brewer Lane is a former model who dated Trump for several months starting in late 1990. She said yesterday said her words were twisted in the Times article, which used interviews to show a pattern of troubling personal behavior towards women by the Republican presidential candidate.

The Times story said Trump asked Brewer Lane to change into a bikini shortly after meeting her at a pool party at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. According to the article, he then introduced her to the crowd outside, saying, “That is a stunning Trump girl, isn’t it?”

“They spun it to where it appeared negative,” Lane said on Fox News. “I did not have a negative experience with Donald Trump.”

According to a Washington Post story in 1990, Brewer Lane moved from Reston to Maryland after high school. She was a “Star Search” model and was the 1988 Miss Maryland, as part of the Miss U.S.A. contest.

The Post story also reports Brewer once worked as a bartender at Clyde’s and Da Dominico in Tysons Corner and the Dome in Washington.
