Donald Trump

Gloria Allred Did Jack SQUAT

for Transgender Beauty Queen

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."

i think donald met his match....but seriously no one wants to see a tranny in a beauty competion. Sometimes i click on tranny porno's on accident and i just can't like it. Even though i am the most nonjudgmental person.

Here we go again. So this is what's been keeping this buffoon up lately.

I wonder if he needed a 'team on the ground' going through birth certificates.

Only one outcome for egomaniacs like Trump. The way of the Gaddhafi family!

Miss Universe Pageant is a show I watch every year! I am not watching it this year, and I don't think I'll watch it again. I am sure a lot of people will not watch since it will become a freak show. If you are a man/woman and have an operation to become the opposite, you become a freak. You can desguise all you want, but you are who you were born!
The Miss Universe Pageant used to be about a woman's beauty. And the winner is the representative of a woman's grace and beauty. It was a formal show. And I remember years ago, they banned plastic surgery on the contestants. And now this? I know what Trump is going to say after the show, but the ratings will go down. He didn't have the balls to stand his ground, now he can stay with his show of freaks.

I have met a lot of gay people, and although they want to act neutral, they have issues with women. They hate women, but they want to be like them, what the hell is that? Maybe that's why they want to be in women's grounds, to disrespect them.

So, now men are allowed in all the beauty pageants. Any man can have surgery and be allowed in a pageant. Wow. I'll be on stage as soon as I shave my pubes and tuck my meat under my legs. Is there no ffing line that these total sell-outs won't cross. Trump, you sir are a coward.

Another reason why Miss Universe has become irrelevant now. Miss Universe was a goal by many women around the world, and pagents are big business in those countries. now to get a man involved? Why not start the "Miss Tranniverse" contest and allow either men or women.
