Donald Trump

Gloria Allred Did Jack SQUAT

for Transgender Beauty Queen

4/11/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump claims Gloria Allred...
Donald Trump claims Gloria Allred and her publicity-whoring shenanigans had NOTHING to do with overturning a Miss Universe policy that banned transgender women from its competition -- if anything, Gloria actually hurt their cause.

The Miss Universe Organization just released a statement, claiming its decision to overturn the transgender policy was "a result of our ongoing discussions with GLAAD and not Jenna's legal representation, which if anything delayed the process."

According to the statement, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation contacted the Miss Universe organization on March 24th -- over a week before Allred held her news conference with transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova.

In case you missed it, Gloria held the news conference in protest -- after the Miss Universe organization banned Talackova from competing because she wasn't a female at birth ... a decision that was quickly overturned.

But Trump claims Gloria wasted her breath -- because GLAAD had been working with the Miss Universe organization to rectify its transgender policy long before Allred's "public involvement."

While I don't have a problem with transgendered people... I still don't think that changing the rules to suit ONE or TWO people is worth all that's going to happen now. There is going to be so much unneeded drama and controversy. I mean, is it worth changing the rules to an entire organization that's been around for years for ONE person. That's not equal rights.. that's special treatment.

Trump is absolutely correct. Jenna does not have any money or know how to dealing with getting a lawyer etc. Many people kow this Jenna person in Vancouver, she is a Barstar. drinking and hanging with alot of gangsters every single weekend. i just think that the lawyer took advantage of the situation and lined up a total media blitz for her own gain. Jenna is no Rosa Parks....Rosa Parks organized and collaborated with civil rights leaders, including boycott leader Martin Luther King, Jr., helping to launch him to national prominence in the civil rights movement. Jenna just sits and smiles and says a word or two. tI am not bashing Jenna. I feel sorry for her having to be born in the wrong body. But Trump is right. The Lawyer is so full of crap. she only cares about getting her own name around the globe.

Listen Donald, you gutless piece of s**t, if you want this guy to compete against women then do it. But leave the rest of us out of it. I always knew that deep down, you were a wimp. You didn't even have the guts to say to this guy, "hey,I don't care what you had lopped off or added on, if you were born a male, you're a male now, you will die a male, and a male you will be when you meet your God." That's what men say to other men. You, on the other hand, showed just what you are. What you should have done was grab that guy's balls. Hey! He isn't using them.

Got to go with Donny on this. Allred won't do a thing unless their is cameras. When Allred set's up cameras, her ever popular media press confrence, all that ever does is showboating herself not the client.

I swear they put that woman on here just to piss me off. My dander goes up everytime I see her ugly face. She is a clown, a joke, and a blackmailer that is some how doing it legally. She holds News conferences to blackmail people into settling before court. Or she will get down and dirty and lie and cheat and do dirty things, even with baseball bats, just to win. I would like to see Gloria go to jail and Jenna should stick to transgender pageants. It is not called the "This is IT Universe Pageant". Let the real women have one thing that they can call their own without some man coming in and spoiling everything. Rules must now be changed to accommodate the stampede of transgenders that will take over the pageants. Is it real or is it Memorex.
