I would have to agree with Fox News Todd Starnes on this topic. ‘When did the Miss America Pageant turn into the Nasty Woman protest?”
The liberal MSM is really losing viewers these days with all their stunts. Thousands are already boycotting CNN (Clinton News Network) for its fake news. Then, we have thousands more boycotting the NFL…thanks to Roger Goodell, Commissioner of the NFL, and his stance on ‘kneeling during the national anthem’. Now, we have the Miss America Contest or the Miss ‘National Scholarship Competition’ politicized. When is the MSM going to learn? Most Americans don’t want to see their TV shows politicized.
More people would watch these events IF they weren’t politicized by the MSM or the liberal left. These young women were grilled on Trump’s policies. Miss America was one downright nasty or one big Trump bashing party.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
Though the annual Miss America pageant Sunday night contained a lot of anti-Trump nonsense, as does anything connected to entertainment these days, one patriotic contestant managed to sneak a very unexpected but much appreciated defense of President Donald Trump into the show.
That contestant was Miss Missouri, Jennifer Davis, who defended the president when asked about the ongoing investigation about his campaign allegedly colluding with the Russians last year to disrupt the 2016 presidential election.
“There are multiple investigations into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia on the election — well, did they?” judge Jordin Sparks asked, as reported by The Washington Post. “You’re the jury: guilty or innocent? And please explain your verdict.”
To be clear, Sparks isn’t the typical entertainment world airhead. Her outspoken Christian beliefs have been evident since she burst onto the scene on “American Idol” in 2007, and she made a name for herself in evangelical circles before that performing at pro-life events.
However, her question was far from the only anti-Trump one that appeared Sunday evening. (As Fox News’ Todd Starnes’ column was headlined, “When did the Miss America Pageant turn into the Nasty Woman protest?”)
Davis, however, was the only contestant who responded by defending the president.
“Right now, I have to say innocent, because not enough information has been revealed,” she replied. “We are still investigating this, (major clapping from the audience) 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.”
And as The Daily Wire pointed out, the crowd cheered while she was giving her answer.
They probably cheered because she had spoken truthfully. In fact, new evidence released last month suggests that even the hack of the Democrat National Committee’s computers had NO ties to EITHER the Russians OR President Trump. Instead, it’s believed the hack was committed by the Democrats themselves (…more likely it was that nice IT staffer, Imran Awan, employed by Rep. Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’ Schultz).
“A group of former US intelligence officials contend that the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s computers in 2016 was an inside job,” the New York Post reported in mid-August. “The group, which calls itself the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, or VIPS, said there was an insider leak that occurred thanks to someone with access to a DNC computer.”
Not surprisingly, not a single contestant at Sunday’s pageant was asked about this stunning find. Hmmmm. Not suprised!
Here’s Fox News Todd Starnes with his commentary:
Of the top 5 contestants – 4 out of 5 got asked Trump bashing questions. Funny how the winner of Miss America won because she bashed Trump. I wonder if that mean that Miss Missouri would have won IF she bashed Trump?
Miss Texas….tolerance, diversity and inclusion…what a shock coming from the conservative state of Texas.
As for the Miss America pageant, maybe more people would watch it, if the MSM didn’t politicize it. As one mom said, “I am so disappointed. They ruined the Miss America pageant with political correctness.”
As for Miss Missouri, she took first runner-up in the pageant, thus earning herself a much-deserved $25,000 scholarship.
By the way…Miss Davis should serve has a stark reminder of why being a hard-working but also honest human being always pays off in the long run.
In case you are wondering…the platform Miss Missouri ran on was ‘United We Stand, Divided We Fall: Diversity Matters’…I guess that’s just not a good enough platform for ‘Miss America’.
As for Miss Davis, I’d like to say….nice work! And enjoy your scholarship!
…Sorry about the jazzed up version of a ‘Nasty Women’s March’!
