Donald Trump on Jenna Talackova Decision: Gloria Allred Still Sucks

by at . Comments

Donald Trump said transgender Miss Universe hopeful Jenna Talackova is welcome to compete in the pageant, but that his organization's decision to permit her didn't have anything to do with her attorney, Gloria Allred.

In fact, he could've prevailed over her handily if he so chose.

"I did not know that she had a lawyer, and especially Gloria Allred," Trump told Good Morning America. "In fact, had I known it was Gloria Allred, we probably would not have reversed the decision because, you know, Gloria is easy to beat.”

The fact is, we went by the laws of the country and the laws are very clear and, based on that, about two days ago, we decided to let her compete."

Trump said the 23-year-old Jenna Talackova, who underwent sexual reassignment surgery at the age of 19 and was temporarily barred from the pageant, “should simply focus on running up in Canada and seeing how she does in Canada.

“And then, if she does well, she has a chance to become what many, many young women all over the world want to be and that's Miss Universe."

"That's all she should be focusing on right now."

On Monday, in the wake of controversy surrounding the case, Trump Executive VP Michael D. Cohen said in a statement over Talackova’s status:

"The Miss Universe Organization will allow Jenna Talackova to compete in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant provided she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions."

Miss Universe Canada will be crowned in Toronto May 19.

Should Jenna Talackova have been disqualified?

Frankenstien, go home! Don't taint the Miss Universe Pageant with your gross vulgar insidious ideas...No way is it a female, it's a male monster. Male is male, female is female by birth. No changing it by humans will make that fact any different. I am surprised they let her compete. It's sickening and shameful.


DEAR MR. TRUMPH, MISS UNIVERSE ARE FOR WOMAN, MAKE ANOTHER INDEPENDENT EVENT FOR TRANSGENDER. allowing them to join Ms. Universe means we ladies are also allowed to join Ms. GAY competition...??? I am a woman, you have wife, a mother, sister or daughter maybe... i have gay friends and relatives and maybe you do too. But this is unacceptable. It doesn't mean we discriminate the transgender if you dont allow them on the competition, consider that still they are men, strength and body of a man. We woman feel really sad, and we are disappointed on this issue. PLEASE RESPECT THE RIGHT AND FEELINGS OF A WOMAN... YOU ARE TOTALLY DEGRADING US NOW.


This is absurd! How is it possible that a women who has a child is not allowed to compete but someone who was naturally born a MALE is allowed to!? How does that make sense! I am furious!


this is CRAZY!!!! Be happy with your gender people! I do not think IT should be allowed to compete!!!


This is such a horrible thing that is happening here. How can a man be allowed to compete on a woman contest??? I don't have anything against these men but enough is enough! This is the only thing that is not tainted with transgender bullshit! They wanted to get married fine... but this is just ridiculous!! What else are they going to want to screw up?!?! i don't agree with it! This is what happens when you give a little and they take your whole arm! Im sick of this..


She looks just like The Donald's daughter Ivanka.


such people who r not satisfied with d way God created them should not b allowed to participate in such,very bad example to the society n young upcomin models


Transexuals do not contribute anything productive to society much like mentally insane people. 80% of transexuals are prostitutes.
They are not women. In my expert opinion, it is a mental disorder led by an insane delusion probably caused by lack of attention as a child or abuse. If you interview 10 transexuals all of them will tell you a story of abuse.
That being said, it is a complete put down to all natural women for this man to be allowed to compete in a female beauty pageant. It is just another way that men try to control everything.


Jenna Talackova is kind of ugly, truth be told. Surely, there are better looking transsexuals out there.


i dont think jenna should be allowed to compete its a pageant for WOMEN not gender reassigned individuals, thats why there's drag queen pageants and all that crap... i think there should be a rule against this im sure some of the contestants are already against this
