PITTSBURGH –The Miss USA pageant representative from Pennsylvania resigned her crown claiming the contest is not carried out in a fair and balanced way but the organizaers including the Mr. Trump himself have fired back at her claiming the beauty queen was upset over the decision to allow transgender contestants to enter.I
Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin posted on her Facebook page that a fellow contestant learned the names of the top 5 finishers on Sunday morning – many hours before the show was broadcast.
It turned out that the names of the top 5 finishers that the contestant told Sheena about were the ones named during the show. This did not go down well with Sheena and she decided to resign from the contest.
“In my heart I believe in honesty, fair play, a fair opportunity, and high moral integrity, none of which in my opinion are part of this pageant system any longer,” Monnin wrote in one of her Facebook posts.
My two cents: Assuming, just assuming that Monnin is telling the truth, I would like the pageant organizers to tell me and the many others like me out there how in the world the judges can decide the result of a contest before it is even carried out unless Trump and his people have been practicing some form of voodoo magic.
many young women work so hard for so long for these contests because they believe that they will get a fair opportunity, it is nothing short of murder on the part of trump and the pageant organizers to not only ignore their efforts but despise it by handpicking the ones the contestants they prefer before the contest takes place. So what the heck are the judges there for, to exhibit their stinking overdone and overpriced makeups?
Mr. Trump, in a live interview on ABC’ Good Morning America called Monnin’s claims “totally ridiculous” and said the pageant organization plans to sue Monnin for making the “false charge.”
“We’re going to be suing her now. She made a very false charge and she knows it’s a false charge,” Trump said.
The Miss Universe Organization on the other hand issued a statement saying that the contestant who Monnin claimed saw the sheet vehemently refuted Monnin’s account, claiming that Monnin resigned because of her stance on transgender contestants.
Miss Rhode Island, the pageant’s winner, Olivia Culpo, supported the organizers claim by saying that Monnin’s original resignation was based on her stance on the pageant’s policy on transgender contestants and called it “strange” that Monnin is now saying something else.
“It’s a little iffy to me,” Culpo concluded.
Mr Trump in addition to threats to sue Sheena has expressed his disbelieve that Monnin’s resigned was due to transgender issues saying:
“I don’t think that she had an issue with that,” Trump said. “I think her primary issue is that she lost and she’s angry about losing. And frankly, in my opinion, I saw her barely a second and she didn’t deserve to be in the top 15.”
Trump added that the woman was suffering from nothing more than “loser’s remorse.”
My two cents: So Trump is claiming that the woman didnt resign because of her stance on transgender contestants but instead resigned because she was suffering from loser’s remorse.
Meanwhile Trump’s people are claiming that Sheena Monnin resigned because she didn’t buy the idea of guys who have changed their sexual orientation participating in the contest.
However no one is saying that the top 5 finishers were not already picked before the show, they are avoiding this topic and focusing on putting Monnin in the light of a hater of transgenders.
So Trump and the organizers are not even on the same page, who then shall we believe? The truth shall come to light pretty soon.
