Gal Gadot Says She Would’ve Pulled Krav Maga on Donald Trump’s Wandering Hands

In the wake of allegations of Donald Trump misbehaving at Miss Universe pageants — walking freely amongst dressing rooms while participants changed, etc. — one of the first questions television host James Corden had for former Miss Israel Gal Gadot was whether Trump, when she met him at the 2004 Miss Universe competition, had toed the line.

“Show me on a doll where he touched you,” Corden said, during Gadot’s appearance on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” last Thursday.

Gadot’s response?

“So, I’m Israeli,” she said, breaking into a grin. “We go into the military, right? So we know Krav Maga and everything.”

“She would have grabbed him,” Cher, Corden’s other guest, chimed in. “And then he would have never moved again!”

Gadot, Corden, and Cher all seemed tickled by the idea.

Gadot did, however, have one kind thought for Trump. She was very impressed, she said, “with the hair.”
