Donald Trump has announced that the Miss Universe Organization - which he owns! - plans to sue Miss Pennsylvania USA, a.k.a. Sheena Monnin.
Monnin resigned her crown Tuesday claiming Sunday’s Miss USA pageant was rigged ... and has no morals for allowing transgendered contestants.
Miss Rhode Island Olivia Culpo won Miss USA 2012, while Monnin, who did not place in the top five, said it was predetermined from the start.
Trump begs to differ and says he hopes Monnin has a good lawyer.
“We’re going to bring a lawsuit against this girl,” he told Today co-anchor Ann Curry and ABC's George Stephanopoulos in separate interviews.
“It is so ridiculous,” Trump told Curry of Monnin’s charge, noting that the voting is “supervised by Ernst and Young and everything is certified.”
“They've done an investigation. I just found out about it ... the person that supposedly showed the list totally denies that that ever took place.”
Besides, he noted later, “the organization doesn’t care who the Top 5 are, or the Top 10,” adding, “I mean, what difference does it make?”
