With all the accusations being leveled at Donald Trump, one beauty queen has some harsh words – for his accusers.
After the “hot-mic” tape in 2005 where Trump makes obscene comments about women, a number of others have come forward claiming they were assaulted or groped by Trump, IJR is reporting.
While sexual assault is something that has taken a very personal toll on Miss USA 2005 Chelsea Cooley Altman, it’s the timing of these allegations — so close to Election Day — that, as she tells Fox News, has her skeptical.
She doesn’t buy it. She said she’s known Donald Trump for 11 years through her consulting firm, StandOut Productions, and remains close to the GOP Nominee.

She said she’s never once felt “compromised” by Trumps behavior.
Altman — who started her own image consulting firm, StandOut Productions, Inc. — says that she’s remained close with Trump since retiring her crown.
Though she’s known Trump for 11 years, including having him as her personal business mentor for the past five, she says she has yet to feel “compromised” by Trump’s behavior.
“I think everybody has a story to tell. Whether or not I believe it is a completely different side…”
“Less than a month out from the election, it is all coming out now? You can’t help but look at the timing and question it…” she told The Daily Mail.
Why would you not come out about it before if it happened and if it was something that greatly bothered you? I guess I am a different person because if something bothered me, I would speak out about it.”
Tragically, sexual assault is an issue that’s all too familiar for Altman. She was a victim if sexual assault by her boss when she was 16, she said. She knows what its like and has no tolerance for it.
