Miss America Pageant Gets Political and Blatantly Anti

Though the ominous feeling of concern for those in the path of Hurricane Irma in Florida hung heavy in the air, the show must go on.

"I think my onstage question and answer was just my personal opinion", Mund, 23, said the day after the pageant. They're self-serious to the point that satirizing them is nearly too easy, and the women in them have probably been going on a pageant circuit since they were five or something. (She said they should be moved, but maybe to a museum, and not destroyed.) Miss Missouri, Jennifer Davis, was asked about charges that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the election (she said she considers all who are now being investigated innocent until authorities know more, but if they did collude, then they should be punished).

"She did a fabulous job and we could not have been more excited when she won", Hoeven said. "Guilty or innocent and please explain your verdict?" "I'm an American", she said. "I think everyone has a right to think what they want".

"Neo-Nazis, white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent and a counter-protester was killed", said judge Jess Cagle, editorial director of People and Entertainment Weekly. The president said there was shared blame with "very fine people on both sides". Were there? Tell me yes or no, and explain.

"It was very obvious that it was a terrorist attack", Wood answered.

Meeting with reporters afterward, Mund said she wanted first and foremost to give a real answer to the question. The question was about the US pulling out of the Paris Agreement on "man made climate change" and whether it was good or bad. This isn't necessarily: 'Does climate change exist or not?' but rather the fact that we're going to keep our Earth clean for future generations, and I just think it's really important that we have a seat there.

Menounos: 195 countries signed the Paris Agreement, in which each country sets non-binding goals to reduce man made climate change.

Frankfurt Motor Show: BMW M8 GTE previews halo road car's looks

In an onstage interview, Mund disagreed with President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the USA from the climate accord aimed at reducing green house gas emissions that contribute to global warning. Which is it, and why?

"It's a bad decision", she said. "Yet, we still keep that North Dakota nice aspect". Quite an achievement! Miss New Jersey is awesome.

Lipinski: A recent poll found slightly over half of Americans favored leaving confederate statues in place while others want them removed. "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? This year Dena hosted all the preliminaries for the pageant and shared her thoughts on both the victor Miss North Dakota Cara Mund as well as Miss New Jersey, Kaitlyn Schoeffel who was second runner up.

"I think I'm still in shock". Because we are truly defined by our country's history, and I don't think it's something that we need to forget. "As Americans, we need to make sure that we come together, represent what it means to be American, which is celebrating all people from all backgrounds, whether you're an immigrant or a Native American or an African American or an Asian American". But they should be moved to museums.

I have no doubt that had she declared that President Trump was guilty as sin and deserved to rot in jail, she would be wearing the crown today.

As Cara Mund prepares for a year of traveling the country as Miss America, she's hoping North Dakotans will book her for appearances so she can visit home.
