It seems that every year the Miss USA pageant has some sort of controversy that stirs up the internet. This year, the controversy involved none other than presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Yahoo News reported that Miss Hawaii, Chelsea Hardin, was asked who she would vote for, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, in a very politically charged question that infuriated the internet.
“With Hillary Clinton expected to surpass the delegate count needed to win the Democratic Party nomination, my question to you is: If the election were held tomorrow, would you vote Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump for president and why would you chose one over the other?” asked Harper’s Bazaar executive editor Laura Brown, one of the judges.
Before Brown had even finished asking the question, the audience was booing loudly (which you can clearly hear in the clip below), making it very clear they didn’t approve of this gender-loaded question.

Miss Hawaii managed to answer the question in a way that blew away the judges and exposed them as being gender-obsessed people eager to make a name for themselves.
“All I have to say … it doesn’t matter what gender. What we need in the United States is someone who represents those of us who feel like we don’t have a voice. Those of us who want our voices heard. We need a president who will push for what is right and who will push for what America really needs. Thank you,” she said.

No one in this country, liberals or conservatives, should be denied a position or a title simply because of who they think should be president. And they certainly shouldn’t be required to identify their candidate of choice publicly in the first place.
Miss Hawaii was named first runner-up, but you do have to wonder whether if she had said that she was voting for Clinton the judges would have given her the title of Miss USA.
