Donald Trump, the owner of the Canada Miss Universe Beauty Pageant, has snapped back on transgender beauty Jenna Talackova's lawyer Gloria Allred.
I think Gloria would be very very impressed with [my penis], Trump told TMZ, responding to Gloria Allred's statement Jenna didn't ask Mr. Trump to prove he's a naturally born man, or see photos of his birth, or to view his anatomy ... It made no difference to her. Why should it have made a difference to him?
Gloria spoke at a press conference Tuesday arguing that Trump's decision to throw out Talackova from the contest for her being a transgender was unjust and discriminatory.
Continuing his nasty response to Gloria's statement, the 65-yer-old entrepreneur said that he would show what he has, but only if Gloria's pays the right price.
Donald said he would not apologize for banning Talackova from the pageant last week on the basis of her birth gender although he later changed his decision and allowed her to re-enter the competition, provided she met the legal gender recognition requirements. He added that he couldn't care less if Jenna even competed.
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, the Miss Universe Canada organization said in a statement Monday.
At the press conference, Allred criticized Trump's handling of the situation and said, Jenna entered this competition and gave the pageant her time, her best efforts and her money.
She did not think for one moment that what she might have looked like at birth would be relevant.
Allfred said Talackova might have to consider suing the pageant.
Mr. Trump's statement fails to state that the rule that only naturally-born women will be allowed to compete will be eliminated, Allred said. Otherwise, we are considering all of Jenna's legal options.
Talackova, who had participated in the Miss Universe Canada Beauty pageant, had reached the final round when she was disqualified from contesting further after she admitted that she was born a male. The 6.1-feet tall blonde was selected among 65 finalists for the competition to be held in Toronto, May 19, 2012.
As a toddler, Talackova knew in her mind that she was a girl. She began her hormone therapy at the age of 14 and had the surgery when she was 19. With delicate features, long legs and blonde hair, she was a strong contender till she was booted out of the competition for being transgender.
The beauty pageant dumped the transsexual contestant stating that she did not meet the requirements to compete despite having stated otherwise on her entry form.
The officials had said every contestant should be a naturally born female only although so far, there are no written rules about sex change or cosmetic surgery.
The issue sparked debate everywhere and thousands of people have come forward to support her cause.
A petition created by a man from Brooklyn, NY, and hosted on www.change.org, got more than 40,000 signatures supporting Jenna Talackova's cause.
All of Jenna's official documents, including her driver's license and birth certificate, say she's a female. Jenna even proved it by whipping out her passport.
