Donald Trump to the rescue! For those of you who don’t know, there has been a media storm going on in the LGBT community because of a post-op transgendered beauty queen being kicked out of the Miss Universe Canada contest.
Jenna Talackova, a tall blond who underwent gender-reassignment surgery at age 19 and holds legal documents — including a passport, birth certificate and driver’s licence — affirming her identity as a woman but unfortunately that wasn’t enough. Talackova, 23, was kicked out of the Miss Universe Canada competition last Friday after she was selected as one of 65 finalists.
Trump has stepped in to overturn a decision by the Miss Universe Organization, (which he owns) that would prevent a transgender Canadian beauty pageant contestant from competing because she was not “naturally born” a woman.

Transgendered beauty queen Jenna Talackova has found a friend in Donald Trump!
Trump doesn’t care if she’s a “natural” woman!
Michael Cohen, special counsel to Donald Trump and executive vice president of his business group had this to say…
“As long as she meets the standards of legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, which we understand that she does, Jenna Talackova is free to compete in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant.”
“Nobody is capitulating. Rather the Miss Universe organization is respecting the laws of Canada,” Cohen told Reuters, adding that she, “like all the other contestants, is wished the best of luck by Mr. Trump.”
He also said, “Assuming she wins, she would be the representative of that country (Canada)” in the larger Miss Universe Pageant.
The winner of that contest, who ultimately will be crowned on May 19 in Toronto, will go on to represent Canada in the global Miss Universe Pageant later in the year.
