Americans are beginning to face the fact that nothing with any significant viewing audience will be free from political rhetoric. Politics are no longer relegated to CNN and C-Span, and it’s getting old. If there’s a viewing audience, it’s a safe bet that there will be some political points scored, and the Miss America pageant was no different.
While many applaud the group’s organizers for trying to make it about more than just beauty, if their plan was to help out Americans, they failed miserably. The only thing that was successfully helped was the agenda constantly trying to turn Americans against President Trump. The questions asked of the contestants weren’t even veiled to sound like they were unbiased, and the contestants went along for the ride.
Independent Journal Review reported on some of the more controversial questions put before the would be winners of the pageant. The first was put to Miss Texas, and she was less than positive toward the President:
“’Last month, a demonstration of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville, Va. turned violent and a counter-protester [sic] 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.’”

Sound familiar? That’s probably because it’s almost exactly what the liberal media has been telling us ever since the rally happened. These judges are obviously only interested in hearing their own opinions parroted back to them in the contestant’s voices. Just imagine what would have happened if she had mentioned that one of the organizers of the hated rally was originally an Obama staffer and that the whole thing might have been a political ploy. I don’t think that would have done much for her beauty queen career. But the questions weren’t over yet:
“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.”
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, it just would have been nice to actually hear their own opinion and not just a broken record of a high pitched voice re-counting the liberal agenda with good hair and perfect makeup. Then, maybe we would have had a show worth watching.
Miss New Jersey had a little bit of spunk to her though. She almost came through for us, and she did actually put forth a possible solution to a problem that we face as a nation. Obviously, she didn’t win the competition, but at least she didn’t come out looking like a pre-recorded Barbie doll that was forced to say something approved:
“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.’”
The judges seem to have decided that they wanted to re-hash the entire political year with this crowd. Regardless of whether or not that’s what the people tuned in to see, the judges decided to shove their political agenda down our throats, but Miss Missouri did her best to give an actual opinion instead of making it all about the liberal agenda. The questioner tried to set the Russia trap again, but she wasn’t having it.
‘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.”
Here’s how Twitter responded to the anti-Trump questions & answers.

Everything is political to the Left. Even the #MissAmerica contestants were asked to bash Trump.

Why is every question on #missuniverse about US Politics/ Trump? This isn't Miss America and it's a double edged sword for them to answer

I stopped watching #MissAmerica a long time ago when it became another chance for liberals to spread the political propaganda

#MissAmerica didn't win for her beauty + wisdom. She won because she is a liberal who said was wrong to pull out of the Paris Accord🙄 Sad!

#MissAmerica will be know as Miss Liberal Agenda next year. Study up on your talking points girls and guys who identify as girls.

It seems that Miss America has gone the way of the NFL and they’re looking to make the pageant all about political issues instead of neutral entertainment for all. Their antics have not gone unnoticed, however, and Americans are beginning to get fed up. Apparently, only liberal puppets are eligible to win this competition, all others need not apply.
