Donald Trump loves beauty pageants so much he bought one in 1996 (Miss USA) and has admitted to walking into teenagers’ dressing rooms to leer at the young women.
Tonight, at the 2018 Miss America pageant, that love was not returned. (Video below.)
Margana Wood, this year’s Miss Texas, was asked if she thought President Trump correctly responded to last month’s white supremacist terror attacks that killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injured 19 others.
Wood did not hold back. In a blistering 20-second rebuke of the president enabling white supremacists, the 22 year-old showed more courage, compassion, and integrity than Trump has in eight months as president.
Well done, Miss Texas. While you were not crowned Miss America tonight, you spoke for the heart of our nation.
