Ex-Miss Wisconsin Tears Up Thanking Trump At Rally
A woman claiming to be Miss Wisconsin of 2005 made an emotional statement today at a Trump rally, thanking the GOP frontrunner for his help while she fights an incurable disease.
“You saved me in so many ways. In recent years I have been struggling with an incurable illness and I am on homecare now, it was caused by doctor’s negligence. And in those dark days fighting…I recieved from you a handwritten letter from you that said ‘to the bravest woman I know.'”
She said that she wanted to thank him in person and for the scholarship for her son, a Mexican-American she noted, facilitated through Trump’s Fund Anything program.
The Hill reports:
She also thanked Trump for the fame that came with her pageant experience, which she said helped her son secure a scholarship.
“I’m here right now to thank you in person because that is my biggest dream,” she said.
“Being able to stand on the stage with you in 2005, the outpouring of love that came from that ultimately provided my son when he graduates high school with a full ride to college.”
She repeated multiple times that her son is a Mexican-American and that Trump’s generosity helped him.
Trump attempted to convince her she would be ok, before leaving the stage to hug her.
“We’re going to be watching your boy, but you’re going to hopefully be around, you aren’t going to have anyone watching,” he said. “Those doctors are going to be so wrong.”
Various pageant blogs and an online fundraising page from FundAnything, which Trump had invested in, claim that 2005 Miss Wisconsin Melissa Young is very sick.
The fundraising page shows more than $18,000 raised for a college scholarship for Young’s son.
