You know liberals have gone too far when you can’t even turn on Miss America to escape politics. I mean, come on… Miss America?
This beauty pageant–and yes, it isa beauty pageant–showcases young women (who still have gravity on their side) in evening wear and swim wear. Showcasing their ‘talents’ and, for sake of excellent entertainment and YouTube clips, a question and answer period.
The most notorious in beauty pageant history is Miss South Carolina…
But, of course, even beauty pageants have been marred by the Anti-Trump cancer that is Hollywood and the entertainment world.
Case in point: Breaking from tradition, the Miss America pageant asked contestants two (instead of just one) questions to the final contestants.
One question was serious, the other not. Four of the five serious questions were political in nature.
According to Newsbusters, “politics dominated the final question competition and yes, it was all about President Trump”:
It began with a question asked by judge Jordin Sparks to Miss Missouri, Jennifer Davis, about the multiple investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians – did Miss Davis think the Trump campaign was innocent or guilty? She said, “Innocent.” The crowd responded with mostly cheers. She said there wasn’t enough evidence but if the campaign proves to be guilty, the Justice Department should punish accordingly.
Sparks: There are multiple investigations into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia on the election. Well, did they? You’re the jury: guilty or innocent and please explain your verdict.
Miss Missouri: Right now I have to say innocent, because not enough information has been revealed. We are still investigating this and I think we should investigate it to its fullest extent. If we do find the evidence that they have had collusion with Russia, the justice system should do their due diligence and they should be punished accordingly.
The question that went to Miss Texas, Margana Wood, centered on Charlottesville.
“Last month, a demonstration of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and KKK in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent and a counter protester was killed. The president said there was shared blame with quote very fine people on both sides. Were there? Tell me yes or no, and explain.”
Miss North Dakota, Cara Mund, was asked if the United States should have pulled out of the Paris Agreement on “man made climate change.”
Never in the history of beauty pageants has:
A) Anyone really cared what these women thought. Their pearly whites, strong jawline, bikini-ready bodies are what brought them to the stage. We do not tune in to pick their brains on politics.
B) Anyone been asked to critique the sitting president. It is rude, distasteful, and downright un-American. No one would have ever muttered these questions during Obama’s presidency. But it is apparently fashionable to pick on Trump.
So can we all agree to keep beauty pageants BEAUTY pageants? You know, the mindless, toothpaste-commercial parade that it is?
And, if not, can you make it a little less obvious that you’re blasting Trump?
Am I off base? What do you think?
