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."

Totally bull****. It said "born a natural woman".....I am amazed that Trump agreed to having her in the pageant. TOTAL BS

The thing that people do not realize is that if Jenna stops taking her hormone pills, her voice will go low again and then her body will get out of control hairy...she is polish ....them polish men are ultra hairy. so she cannot fully be a woman if she needs hormone pills.

Hopefully she doesn't run out of pills. i am sure when she turns 70 she won't care and just stop taking all the pills.

Allred is one of those nitwit publicity chasers whose involvement in a cause, while capturing media attention, actually undermines its credibility.

You are whatever your DNA says you are. The Miss Universe pageant has been irrelevent for years - this should kill it dead.
