Donald Trump humiliates Jennifer Hawkins in Sydney

UPDATE 29/10/2016: Jennifer Hawkins has responded after a video of Donald Tramp humiliating her in front of a stadium full of people resurfaced and made headlines around the world.

Speaking to News Corp Australia at Derby Day in Melbourne on Saturday as the news broke, Jennifer still described Trump as "respectful".

“Just on that whole subject, Donald and his family I have to say, have always been respectful to me,” she said.

“So as much as everyone wants me to bag him, it’s not in my nature. I don’t like drama, I don’t like to get into politics publicly, so that’s why I’ve kind of, not avoided it, just haven’t openly been out there.”

ORIGINAL STORY:

Footage of Donald Trump humiliating Jennifer Hawkins in front of a stadium full of people has emerged and it’s disgusting.

A Youtube video from 2011 shows the US presidential candidate speaking at a conference in Sydney, calling Hawkins up on stage in order to tease, embarrass and make sexual jokes about her.

Hawkins and Trump have had a professional relationship since she won the Miss Universe competition in 2004, which he owned until last year.

In the clip Trump starts telling the audience about how it’s important to get revenge on people, and then starts talking about Jennifer. He seems miffed that she had initially turned down a request to introduce him at the conference, although she did end up doing it.

“Get even with people,” he starts off. “If they screw you, screw them back 10 times as hard. I really believe that.

“I’ll give you an example: Jennifer Hawkins. Where’s Jennifer? Where’s she sitting? Get over here, Jennifer,” he says. “First of all, how beautiful is Jennifer? This is about getting even.”

“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.”

By this time Jennifer is walking across the stage to stand beside Trump.

“So I go around saying she’s the greatest ... then when I came here, there was no Jennifer Hawkins to introduce me.”

Hawkins tries to give her side of the story but he quickly grabs the mic back.

“I was actually going to get up and tell you that Jennifer is a beautiful girl on the outside, but she’s not very bright,” which gets a laugh from the stadium.

“That wouldn’t have been true, but I would have said it anyway.”

He continues to explain why Jen pissed him off.

“Because I said, ‘You know what, it would be great. I haven’t seen Jennifer in a couple of years. She’s so great and she did so well, and she’s a big star here, and I helped her make it ― I own the Miss Universe pageant. And I heard that she wouldn’t introduce me.’”

Jen protests “But I did!”

“No, but you didn’t,” Trump replies. “So what happens is ― and you know what? She came tonight, she came ― came, she came, she came."

He then confirms that he was making a sexual innuendo.

“See, so they have the same filthy minds in Australia.”

“As you,” she quips back.

Trump then tries to pull her in for a kiss, and she turns her head so he only gets her cheek, and she puts her arm up to keep some distance between them.

Watching Trump ‘get even’ with Jen by shaming her in front of thousands of people, attempting to show control over her is sickening to watch, especially after he’s been accused of sexually assaulting at least 13 women.

If this guy becomes the president of the United States, we’re all f*cked.
