Twitter Explodes After Miss America Pageant Goes Full Anti-Trump With Politically Charged Questions

The Miss America 2018 pageant went to a whole new level with numerous loaded questions about politics, as NewsBusters reported.

Miss Texas Margana Wood got a question about President Trump’s handling of Charlottesville:

“Last month, a demonstration of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville, Va. turned violent and a counterprotester was killed,“ judge Jess Cagle said. ”The president said there was shared blame with ‘very fine people’ on both sides. Were there? Tell me yes or no, and explain.”

“I think that the white supremacist issue, it was very obvious that it was a terrorist attack,“ Wood replied. ”And I think that President Donald Trump should have made a statement earlier addressing the fact, and making sure all American feel safe in this country, that is the No. 1 issue right now.”

Miss North Dakota Cara Mund was asked about Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord.

“One hundred ninety-five countries signed the Paris agreement, in which each country sets nonbinding goals to reduce man-made climate change,“ judge Maria Menounos said. ”The U.S. is withdrawing from the agreement, citing negligible environmental effects and negative economic impact. Good decision? Bad decision? Which is it and why?”

“I do believe it’s a bad decision,” Mund responded. “Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table. And that’s something that we really need to keep in mind. There is evidence that climate change is existing, so whether you believe it or not, we need to be at that table. And I think it’s just a bad decision on behalf of the United States.”

Mund would go on to win the Miss America pageant.

Miss New Jersey, Kaitlyn Schoeffel, was asked about her view of the confederate statue controversy.

“A recent poll found slightly over half of Americans favored leaving Confederate statues in place, while others want them removed. Keep them or get rid of them? What’s your vote and why?” asked judge Tara Lipinski.

“I don’t think that the answer is to get rid of these statues,” Schoeffel responded. “I think the answer is to relocate them into museums. Because we are truly defined by our country’s history, and I don’t think it’s something that we need to forget. We need to always remember it and honor our history of America because it truly makes us who we are as Americans. So they should be moved to museums.”

Wow. Then there was the question and answer with Miss Missouri Jennifer Davis.

“There are multiple investigations into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia on the election,” said judge Jordin Sparks. “Well, did they? You’re the jury: guilty or innocent? And please explain your verdict.”

“Right now, I would 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. And if we do find the evidence that they have had collusion with Russia, then they should — the justice system should do their due diligence and they should be punished accordingly.”

Overall, the contestants’ answers were representative of the divided nation we live in. Ultimately, the Miss America crown was awarded to Miss North Dakota Cara Mund, who gave a decidedly negative evaluation to President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord.

It is not the first time the Miss America pageant has turned political, however. During the heat of the 2016 election campaign, the crown was given to Miss New York Camille Sims, who took a savvy and undoubtedly veiled jab at then-candidate Donald Trump. When asked about the presidential candidate, she responded:

“I think he’s a bright reminder of how our country needs to come together,” she said. “If you don’t agree with his message, then you need to decide where you stand on this debate.

As Americans, we need to make sure that we are celebrating all people from all backgrounds.”

A fairly impressive attempt at triangulation, but one with political implications, nevertheless.

The politics of recent Miss America winners contrasts with the 2017 Miss USA winner, a scientist who ruffled feathers with her conservative answer on Obamacare. When asked if health care was a “privilege” or a “right,” she replied:

“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” she said. “As a government employee, I’m granted health care. And I see firsthand that for one, to have health care, you need to have jobs, so therefore we need to continue to cultivate this environment so that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs for all Americans worldwide.”

Miss America 2018 nonetheless astonished many viewers with just how political the questions were:

These weren’t even tweets defending Donald Trump, but rather complaining about the politicization of the Miss America pageant.

The Miss America pageant organizers and ABC News, which is owned by the Disney Corp., must know that politics is a turn-off for the viewers.

The pageant chooses to push politics, anyway. It speaks volumes about its priorities.

    Wow, a whole new level of BS. Not one time did anyone ask these “beauty queens” anything about the Obama administration, not to mention that how these pageants FEEL about Trump is a loaded OPINIONATED question. How crass, class-less and trashy these questions were…..Disgraceful how everyone is showing such disrespect. REmind me the next time I have to tolerate an inept loser such as Obama as president to get out in the street and riot, and let everyone hear me cry about it….

      I stopped watching those liberal charged events and now gave up on the NFL and am better for it. If this does not wake up the people how the left plays then nothing will.

    I stopped watching these bimbos many years ago. The questions last year convinced me that the mainstream liberal media and sponsors are all political manipulators and have thrown in with Barry and Michael. Absolutely disgusting and a real turn off for those who actually have a brain to think critically.

    The MISS AMERICA is owned by the BROTHER of Rahm Emmanuel, named Ari Emmanuel. Rahm Emmanuel is the DNC Mayor who managed to turn Chicago into a festering, thug-infected city.

    Ari Emmanuel is, like his thug brother, a member of the Democratic Party, and is himself a thug, and of course also a liberal. Therefore, he does whatever it is that liberals do, thinks whatever it is that liberals think, and says whatever it is that liberals say. He is fond of suing everyone and anything over anything, so as to get everyone to back down and get his way. His partner is Patrick Whitesell, which is basically the same sort of crap.

    It’s a shame that people who commented didn’t like the truth these ladies were saying about the questions that the judges were asking them to explain in detail.None of them knew anything about the questions they were being asked before hand they were merely stating what they believed.

      The contestants were showing the liberal slant that the colleges and universities are cramming into their minds! The ‘education’ industry does NOT want independent thinking people! They want, and are working to get, a whole generation of robots!

    We have a sitting President whether or not the liberal media likes him or not, does not matter. These women going for a meager scholarship and some press, are asked questions that were geared into left wing politics, and of coarse if they answer wrong ( which is right wing answers) they will not get the prize. Most could not answer the question because they feared their true response or were so afraid they didn’t hear the entire question and answered for a left wing panel of judges. What happened to World Peace, helping the poor and improving the world around us like education and urban renewal. The only way these women can help the world is to take a non political view and take an humanitarian view. Shame on the Judges and the announcers, producer and advertiser for this very narrow view of what the AMERICAN PUBLIC want to hear and see. How can we ever get on to the important things in life when the liberals are stuck on an election they lost, yes they lost it, their minds too.
