Presidential candidate and reality TV star Donald Trump has had a rocky campaign, mostly due to his past behaviour towards women. Now, those scandals have hit our shores and Jennifer Hawkins is in the middle of it.
Footage emerged overnight of Trump humiliating the model at a conference in Sydney. During a speech, he used the opportunity to get ‘revenge’ on Jennifer who had (according to Trump) declined to introduce him on stage.
“Get even with people. If they screw you, screw them back 10 times as hard,” Trump says, “I’ll give you an example: Jennifer Hawkins.”
Trump asks Jennifer to the stage and continues, “I was so angry at her yesterday. Seriously, as I said, I thought that she dissed me. I thought that my Jennifer – I’m going around saying she’s my favourite Miss Universe, but I think I like the new one better Jennifer. So I go around saying she’s the greatest, and then when I came here, there was no Jennifer Hawkins to introduce me.”
Jennifer awkwardly defends herself, before Trump announces that she’s not ‘very bright’ and takes credit for her rise to fame.
He then throws in a sexual innuendo: "So what happens is... and you know what? She came tonight, she came... came, she came, she came."
"See, so they have the same filthy minds in Australia."
Jennifer replies with, "As you."
Trump then attempts to give Jennifer a kiss on the lips. Jennifer moves her head and it lands on her cheek before she asks to sit down.
Jennifer has defended Trump today, telling News Corp that the Trump family have always been respectful to her. She also has no intentions to ‘bag him’ as it’s not in her nature.
It’s great to see Jennifer taking the high road.
