The Miss America pageant was lit this year. The title may have been snatched up by Miss North Carolina Cara Mund, but the real winner in the eyes of many Americans was Miss Texas after Margana Wood did the pageant equivalent of beating Donald Trump with a bag of phone books in a back alley.
Last month a demonstration of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the 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?” a judge asked Miss Texas. “Tell me yes or no and explain.”
She had 20 seconds to answer, but she only needed 15 of them:
I think that the white supremacist issue, it was very obvious, that it was a terrorist attack. And I think that President Donald Trump should’ve made a statement earlier addressing the fact, and in making sure all Americans feel safe in this country. That is the number one issue right now.”
Wood may have come in fourth place, but she was first in the hearts of America. Mund wasn’t exactly a slouch either. When Miss North Carolina was asked about Trump pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, the woman who would become Miss America said that it was a “bad decision” because “Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table and that’s something that we really need to keep in mind.”
Pageants used to be a safe place for Donald Trump, where he could walk in of 15-year-old girls getting dressed and gawk at them. Now they’re getting all political and stuff. What’s happened to our country?

The Miss America Pageant is still a thing & was maybe hacked by white supremacists, Russians and/or Mark Zuckerberg. Possibly the Pope. pic.twitter.com/ito0YXbWEk
