Donald Trump has found a celebrity ally!
And no, we’re not talking about Scott Baio. Instead, former Miss USA Tara Conner is speaking out in favor of her former boss and has even credited him as the one who saved her life.
In case you forgot, back in 2006, Miz Conner made headlines after she was caught underage drinking, using cocaine, and kissing Miss Teen USA Katie Blair at a NYC nightclub. As the beauty queen put it herself, she became known nationwide as “Mess USA.” Shockingly, Drumpf decided to let Tara keep her title and publicly gave the blonde beauty a second chance — on the condition she enter rehab.
And it seems now, Conner can pay back Trump’s generosity by being a vocal supporter of his presidency. In a written piece for USA Today, the 31-year-old noted:
“It was 10 years ago that I got out of treatment, and I thank him for my 10 years of recovery. I will always be profoundly grateful. He saved my life and, essentially, made me great again. As part of my journey, I have become a vocal advocate for recovery, and today I speak out for the millions who do not have a voice.”
Well, we can’t say she isn’t eloquent. The recovery advocate continued:
“There are 22 million Americans who suffer with a substance use disorder. Only one in 10 of them has the opportunity to receive treatment for addiction. My boss set an example for employers to help folks who, like me, would not have been able to otherwise afford treatment or even know how and where to look for help.”
The model went onto praise Donald’s recent speech to Congress where he vowed to “expand” treatment opportunities for those inflicted with addiction. Tara also admitted that she is a past victim of child sexual molestation — but, ironically, ignored the Commander-In-Chief’s “pussy grabbing” scandal. Huh.
And if you didn’t pick up on the fact that Conner is a Trump supporter, she concluded the entire post with:
“The president should also know that I am committed to supporting him in any way that I can. It is the least I can do considering what he did for me.”
With all of Hollywood turned against him, at least the President has SOMEONE in his corner!
