There is a great scandal going on this week with the Miss Universe competition. In short, Sheena Monnin, Miss Pennsylvania, is accusing the competition, which Donald Trump co-owns with NBCUniversal, of being totally rigged. She wrote an Op Ed detailing these alleged violations of the competition and, well, Donald has not had the best reaction. Dealbreaker broke down his exact reaction and we couldn’t help but agree that his actions show he is not the best at managing unhappy employees.
First he threatened to sue. Always a good tactic. Why remain calm? Then tell them that their complaints have no validity whatsoever. Monnin announced Tuesday on her Facebook page she was turning in her tiara after she: “Witnessed another contestant who said she saw the list of the Top 5 BEFORE THE SHOW EVER STARTED proceed to call out in order who the Top 5 were before they were announced on stage. Apparently the morning of June 3rd she saw a folder lying open to a page that said ‘FINAL SHOW Telecast, June 3, 2012′ and she saw the places for Top 5 already filled in.” “They’ve done an investigation,” Trump said today. “I just found out about it — they just reported to me about five minutes ago. The person that supposedly showed the list totally denies that that ever took place.”
And then finally, publicly announce that this employee is only complaining in order to get a promotion that they are not worthy of in the slightest. Trump said, “I saw her there. My impressions were she didn’t have a chance of being in the Top 15 — not even close. And all this is, is a girl who went there, lost, wasn’t in the 15, and she’s angry at the pageant system. Later, he added, “I never felt she had a chance. And all this is is buyer’s remorse.” This is totally a mature response to an unhappy employee. This man should definitely be President.
