After learning that Jenna would be on ABC's 20/20 (6 Apr), I set the VCR to tape it.  This morning, I rewound the tape and sat down to watch it.  The show opened with clips and highlights of the topic to come, during which there was a snippet with Donald Trump saying, "'genital'...those are the first letters of her name." :huh:

What did he say?  :blink: What did he *#@!^%  SAY??!! :o

I couldn't believe my ears.  For those of you who didn't see the show, or haven't read anything on last nite's show, here's how it went down -

During the segment about Jenna Talackova, an interview with Donald Trump was shown.  In that interview, he said, "I looked at her name, and somebody brought this up to me, 'JENNATAL'.  Those are the first letters of her name, and it's 'genital.' (He holds up a piece of paper with 'JENNATAL' spelled out in block letters)  And I'm saying to myself, 'hmmm, that's strange.  Could there be an alterior motive?'"

Is he serious?!  Is he REALLY that damn ignorant?  


I've never been a Trump fan.  I don't watch that show "The Apprentice."  But I never realized he is the horse's butt that I've always thought he was.

Donald Trump comes off as brash and arrogant, and lots of people tolerate him because he's filthy rich. But, money doesn't excuse poor behavior and bad manners. What he said is inexcusable. Here's what Gloria Allred, Jenna's high profile attorney, has to say about the matter...  ~ Lori

Transgender Beauty Queen On Bullying Past

People would be near my locker just staring at me. You know, just the name calling, everything." In high school Jenna came to realize that she was not gay, but born in the wrong body, and at 19 she made the huge decision to have transgender surgery...

Keep in mind that a few years ago, the Donald tangled with Rosie O'Donnell. If I recall correctly, he called her fat and a loser. Naturally, she took umbrage and used her on-air position as moderator of "The View" on ABC to exchange fire. The battle went on for many weeks and is probably why she left the show.

Take note, too, that it was pointed out to him. Perhaps he's not clever enough to have thought of it himself.

Yep, fully agree, DT is a boor.
