Donald Trump seems to be bleeding into the lives of people everywhere lately, even as it relates to the contestants of Miss Universe. After all, it is/was his pageant.
The 2017 Miss Universe pageant aired last night introducing presumably some of the most beautiful, intelligent, and poised women across the world.
Millions tuned in to watch the fate of their most favorite pageant queens as they took the stage to compete for a chance to win the organizations’ coveted crown.
One of those lucky beauties ended up being the gorgeous Miss Kenya, who stunned judges and audience members through the night up until it was time for her to compete in the pageant’s question and answer segment.
And let’s just say, from question to answer the whole thing was a bit…awk-weird?
As Miss Kenya took center stage to receive her question by returning host, Steve Harvey, who had an unforgettable dupe last year after announcing the wrong winner, the front runner wasn’t met with the typical if you could heal the world today how would you do it question, but instead was asked to give her opinion on Donald Trump’s first 10 days in office as President.
Seeing as though Miss Kenya is a representative of, you know, Kenya, it was kind of odd she was given a question that seemed so, I don’t know, American-centric?
The request not only took the pageant queen by surprise but also had the Twitterverse scratching their heads in unison asking why?
After a shocked yet very composed Miss Kenya tried internalizing the question as best she could, she eventually delivered a response that 10 out of 10 of us (even with myself being American) possibly would have given.
[Silence]… “Let me just start again. Donald Trump may not have been the choice of many people living in the united states because of the divided support system for the outgoing president Barack Obama who was supporting an upcoming woman president, who was supposed to be a woman president…so so many people opposed his position but I feel that once he took up his position he was able to unify the entire nation. Thank you very much.”
And that ladies and gents is the story of how the crown was mysteriously snatched from Miss Kenya’s hands.
