Paparazzi Cheers and Carrie Forgives
This morning a photographer released unauthorized photos of Carrie taken in between shots. That is pretty horrible. A lovely example of how hard people will work to slander someone who has the audacity to say what she believes. Even if! she is a model! and sometimes poses in bikinis/underwear/etc! (shocking).
The video shows the press cheering after Trump’s statement, and shows Carrie forgiving all those who have purposefully tried to discredit the power of her statement: Marriage is between a man and a woman.
“We’ve really studied these photos,” he said. “We’ve made a determination that everything we’ve seen to date that she’s done—some were very beautiful, some were risqué—the pictures taken were acceptable, were fine, and in some cases were lovely pictures. […]
“If Carrie weren’t so beautiful, this never would have come up,” he said. “Carrie is totally beautiful. And her answer, because of that, took on more importance. Unfortunately, that’s the way the press works. You should be ashamed of yourselves.”
“I would like to thank the thousands of Americans who have sent letters, sent emails, messages…I cannot count the number of fan mail I have received in the past three weeks of people expressing their support to me,” she said, choking back tears. “They have confided in me that they have found hope and inspiration in my story.
“Most importantly, I would like to thank God for trusting me with this large task and giving me the strength to stand by my beliefs.” [source]
