After weeks of controversy, the Miss USA pageant finally took place on Sunday night.
After Donald Trump slammed Mexico during his presidential campaign announcement, the Spanish-language television station Univision immediately announced that they would not be broadcasting Trump’s Miss Universe pageant this summer. Days later, NBC followed suit by announcing that they would also not be airing the pageant.
Just weeks before the show, the hosts Miss USA competition both abruptly quit, leaving the pageant without any host. Luckily, it was eventually picked up by the channel Reelz, and two new hosts were found to lead the show.
The pageant finally aired Sunday night without a hitch, but liberals were everywhere by an answer the unapologetically pro-America Miss Texas gave during the question round.
During the pageant, Miss Texas Ylianna Guerra was asked about the wealth of CEOs in America, and if the government should “impose boundaries on salaries of executives.” According to The Blaze, her interviewer pointed out that in 2014, CEOs earned “around 300 times as much as the average worker salary.”
“If you work hard enough, you can attain anything,” Miss Texas responded. “This is the land of opportunity and CEOs — I believe they work hard enough for their money, so I believe they should be able to attain whatever it is they’re working for.”
Liberals were of course outraged by Guerra’s pro-Capitalist answer. Obama-voters hate the idea of hard work, and instead hope to live in a society where they are supported by the government. While we loved Guerra’s response, the liberal Miss USA judges were clearly not thrilled – Miss Texas finished second in the pageant to Miss Oklahoma.
