Last night at the Miss America pageant, multiple contestants were asked about Trump and his policies during their Q&A session. They were asked about his Russia investigation, his response to Charlottesville, pulling out of the Paris Accords and whether to remove confederate statues.
It’s not that I begrudge these girls for their opinions – in fact there were a couple that I thought were decent. It’s that the pageant creators intentionally politicized the pageant in order to attack Trump. They know these girls are mostly liberal (if not all) and they no doubt had a good idea of how they would answer, especially if they wanted to win.
If it had just been one question I don’t think it would have been as big of a deal. But three were specifically about Trump and his policies.
Oh how I miss the simpler times when the questions were just about about world peace.
