Contestant Accuses Miss USA Pageant of Being Fixed, Trump Says She's Jealous and Ugly

Illustration for article titled Contestant Accuses Miss USA Pageant of Being Fixed, Trump Says Shes Jealous and Ugly

Miss USA contestant Sheena Monnin resigned from her position as Miss Pennsylvania USA via Facebook on Tuesday, writing, "Effective immediately I have voluntarily, completely, and utterly removed myself from the Miss Universe Organization. In good conscience I can no longer be affiliated in any way with an organization I consider to be fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy."


Monnin, who has been removed immediately to her family's estate of Hever Castle along with her two bastard children, claims to have evidence that the contest was fixed, with the final 5 having been predetermined to Sunday's pageant:

I witnessed another contestant who said she saw the list of the Top 5 BEFORE THE SHOW EVER STARTED proceed to call out in order who the Top 5 were before they were announced on stage. After it was indeed the Top 5 I knew the show must be rigged; I decided at that moment to distance myself from an organization who did not allow fair play and whose morals did not match my own.


The Miss USA Organization denies Monnin's claims (as does the contestant she alleges of knowing the top 5), accusing that the former Miss Pennsylvania USA's anger actually stems from their recent decision to allow transgender contestants. In a previous email to pageant officials, Monnin writes, "I refuse to be part of a pageant system that has so far and so completely removed itself from its foundational principles as to allow and support natural born males to compete in it. This goes against ever (sic) moral fiber of my being."

It's earthshaking to believe that an organization headed by Donald Trump could possibly hold the moral high ground in any situation, let alone one of gender rights, but don't worry, you don't have to believe it for very long. George Stephanopoulos spoke with Trump on today's Good Morning America where Trump first accused Monnin of "loser's remorse" and announced plans to sue, then resorted to his favorite standby: She's ugly, too.

"If you looked at her compared to the people who were in the top 15, you'd understand why she's not in the top 15," Trump said, via telephone. Because that certainly wasn't enough, he then added, "In my opinion, I saw her for barely a second, she didn't deserve to be in the top 15." (Are these the foundational principles that Monnin referenced earlier?)

We've discussed this before. Donald's love of insulting a woman's appearance is on par with his love of money and being racist. For him, it's the ultimate insult because, as is evidence by the Miss USA pageant itself, a woman's physical appearance is what he finds most valuable to her existence and he expects us to feel the same way. Unfortunately for him, physical appearance is not of utmost importance. For example, we don't hate Donald Trump because we find him unattractive. We hate him because he is a privileged egomaniac who never shuts the fuck up.

Trump is amazing at publicity. There were so few of these carefully created scandals and attention getters before he took over the pageant. I'm pretty sure everything that's happened is calculated purely for publicity for the pageant, which was very much struggling before hand
