Miss Texas Brutally Rips Trump On Live TV

Political debate is all around us, and it can be tough to get a much-needed break from the rhetoric and rancor. Interest in politics is at an all-time high, and we can directly trace that back to the man that occupies the Oval Office. President Donald Trump sparks some serious passions from supporters and detractors alike, and there are few folks walking around without an opinion on him.

Social media is dominated by conversations about the commander-in-chief, and the discussion is constantly on the airwaves as well - and we’re not just talking about on the news channels. While you would fully expect news programs to be fixated on Trump, other entertainment options are taking the plunge as well. Whether it’s sitcoms, dramas, reality shows, or sports, there’s hardly a program that goes by these days without at least a passing reference to a political topic.

As the Huffington Post shares, that phenomenon was on full display during the Miss America pageant telecast. During the question and answer portion of the program, contestants were grilled on political topics. Miss Texas, Margana Wood, was asked for some thoughts on Trump’s response to Charlottesville.

“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,” she said. “That is the number one issue right now.”

Miss North Dakota, Cara Mund, was asked for her thoughts on Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord.

“I do believe it's a bad decision. Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table and that's something that we really need to keep in mind,” Mund said. “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.”

Miss Missouri, Jennifer Davis, was asked for some thoughts on the Trump-Russia investigation, and whether or not there was collusion that prevented Hillary Clinton from winning.

“Right now I'd have to say innocent because not enough information has been revealed,” she said, but she did note that “we should investigate it to its fullest extent.”

In short, if you’ve about had your fill of Trump talk, then you made the wrong viewing choice by turning into the pageant. Perhaps this was simply an attempt by pageant organizers to drum up interest. If so, mission accomplished, as some headlines were made with what the contestants had to say.

But what about the folks that were simply looking for a break from political chatter? It’s not too hard to envision channels flipping quickly once the contestants were subjected to that line of questioning. Are there seriously no other topics that would be worthy of a question at the pageant?

By the way, Mund won, but it’s unclear if that had something to do with her stance on climate change.
