Donald Trump Jokes About Transgender Beauty Contestant’s Genitals | Barbara Walters sat down with transgender Miss Universe contestent Jenna Talackova on Friday to discuss her transition and the controversy surrounding her participation in Donald Trump’s competition. After initially facing rejected for being trans, Talackova will be allowed to compete in the pageant this coming May and says, “I feel like the universe, the creator put me in this position as an advocate. If it’s helping anyone else, and my story, then I feel great about it.” Walters also interviewed prominent Romney endorser Trump, who, building off his previous comments about the size of his genitalia, joked that Talackova’s name spells “JENNATAL.” The comment prompted Talackova’s lawyer Gloria Allred to observe, “With all due respect to Mr. Trump, he really needs to stop being focused on genitals. His, or anyone else’s. This world does not revolve around his penis or anyone else’s genitalia. Whether a person is a woman is not simply defined by her genitalia.” Watch it:
