Yep, a property that Donald Trump owned for many years has finally hit the dust bin, and deservedly so. Shortly after the Miss Universe contest announced that they would allow transvestite entries, they filed for bankruptcy. If this reminds you of my recent post on Victoria’s Secret, it should. Here are the details. Trump owned Miss Universe from 1996 to 2015.
Trump owned the Miss Universe Organization between 1996 and 2015. After making comments about Mexican immigrants that prompted the termination of the pageant’s partnerships with NBC and Univision, he sold the organization to International Management GroupA Trans Tycoon Just Bought Miss Universe — The Pageant Trump Owned for Years
It looks like International Management Group owned the organization from 2015 to 2022.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Anne Jakkaphong Jakrajutatip — a Thai media tycoon who has been open about her experiences as a trans woman — purchased the pageant for $20 million, CNN reports. Jakrajutatip is also the CEO of JKN Global Group PCL, a Thailand-based media distribution company.
One year later, JKN Global filed for bankruptcy.
While the 2023 Miss Universe pageant, known for its inclusion transgender contestants, will still take place this Saturday, the JKN Global Group behind it filed for bankruptcy just days before the event.
Thai business tycoon and transgender activist Anne Jakrajutatip of the JKN Global Group bought the organization for $20,000,000 in 2022. Jakrajutatip, who has international fame as a transgender celebrity, described the purchase at the time as “a strong, strategic addition to our portfolio.”Company behind Miss Universe files for bankruptcy after accepting transgender contestants
Ok, one thought before I start slamming this situation. Is the chick with a dick that owns this contest leaving all the company liabilities in the existing corporation and exploiting a loophole to place assets into a new corporation, or is this disturbed person really broke? Either way, it’s yet another example of “Go Woke, Go Broke”.
Now for some random thoughts. The Rolling Stone article quoted above also makes some accusations against Trump. These guys really hate conservatives and especially Trump, so this is no surprise. But let’s look at their dig.
Throughout the time Trump owned the pageant, he made creepy comments about the women who competed on the show, while some former Miss USA contestants claimed he walked into teen dressing rooms while they were changing.
“He just came strolling right in,” former Miss Arizona Tasha Dixon told CBS LA. “There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Others girls were naked. Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half-naked changing into our bikinis.”A Trans Tycoon Just Bought Miss Universe — The Pageant Trump Owned for Years
Let’s assume their complaint about Trump walking into the room where the models/contestants were changing is true. Rolling Stone has a problem with this. Sorry but I must dissent at least somewhat. Models always have people attending to them. These helpers are not only around them when dressing but these folks are touching, poking, and prodding them. It’s part of the make-up process to have people making changes to your appearance prior to going in front of the camera.
Again, Rolling Stone has a problem with Trump allegedly doing that but a guy who walks in the changing room gets a pass from them because he’s wearing a dress instead of a suit. Sorry but that’s just weird. Under the hood, they both started out with the same factory plumbing.
Just because the guy that owns the competition thinks he’s a girl, is not what sunk the enterprise. It was when he forced his values onto the audience by allowing transvestites/transsexuals into a women’s beauty contest that he went too far. Just like with Victoria’s Secret, folks expect to see hot women in beautiful clothing. Spectators don’t want to check all the babes for packages at events such as this. They want to see the best that God has created, not some fake crap thrust upon them as equivalent to the genuine article.
Oh, wanna bet that Disney has rights to broadcast this competition in US markets?
Nope, it was on Fox before Trump sold it but now, “Viewers in the US will be able to watch Miss Universe 2023 on The Roku Channel and Telemundo.”
That the competition is on Roku and Telemundo says a lot for where it ranks in the pop culture hierarchy.
Yet again Liberals have to control it or kill it.
