Miss America Pageant Gets Political and Blatantly Anti

The Bismark native beat the 50 other competitors during the annual pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and won a $50,000 scholarship, a six-figure salary and a contract with Dick Clark Productions.

Breaking with the tradition of one question per finalist in the final round of competition, this year the pageant made a decision to ask two questions of each - described as one serious and one playful. As my colleague Hadley Heath Manning highlighted last fall, the downside of the Miss USA pageant was the explicitly political nature of the questions chosen.

Q: There are multiple investigations into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation on the election.

Next, she will travel to Los Angeles and start traveling around the country, Mund said. She said there wasn't enough evidence but if the campaign proves to be guilty, the Justice Department should punish accordingly. Well, did they? You're the jury: guilty or innocent and please explain your verdict. We're still investigating this and I think we should investigate it to its fullest extent.

"Last month, a demonstration of neo-Nazi's, white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent and a counter-protester was killed", judge Jess Cagle said. Should Trump have said there were good people on both sides of the protest, he asked. She didn't mention the terrorist actions of Antifa, though.

Shortly after being crowned, a team of people, including security and tour managers, began to assemble to work with Mund, said Debbie Richter, president of the Miss North Dakota Scholarship Organization who traveled to the pageant. Were there? Tell me yes or no, and explain.

"It was very obvious that it was a terrorist attack", Wood answered. "And making sure all Americans feel safe in this country, that is the number one issue right now".

On Sept. 10, Miss North Dakota, Cara Mund, walked away with the 2018 crown after she was asked if Trump withdrawing the United States from the Paris Agreement was a good decision. Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table.

Q: One hundred ninety five countries signed the Paris Agreement in which each country sets non-binding goals to reduce man-made climate change. The U.S.is withdrawing from the agreement citing negligible environmental effects and negative economic impact.

"It's a bad decision", she said. Which is it, and why? "Someone from North Dakota could become Miss America". And that's something we really need to keep in mind. "I'm an American", she said.

"It's been such a privilege to be able to kind of put us on the map and to be the very first one to make history", Mund said.

"A recent poll found that slightly over half of Americans favored leaving Confederate statues in place while others want them removed", Tara Lipinski asked. "I love watching Miss America get crowned but I get to host the preliminaries and they are so much more fun!" What's your vote and why? Miss Texas, Margana Wood, got the lion's share of attention for her answer, with headlines saying she "did not hold back" and had "slammed" Trump. "I think everyone has a right to think what they want".

"I think that he's a great reminder of how our country needs to come together".

Her vocal opinions and interest in women in politics make her a badass Miss America who we can't wait to watch. "So they should be moved to museums". She's seen 84 Miss America's get crowned, so we brought her on stage and had her picture taken with our former Miss America's.
