After Seeing Miss Texas’ “Secret Wish,” Texans Are Demanding She Step Down

Categories: Culture

The 2017 Miss America pageant was held Sunday night, but in the view of Fox News‘ Todd Starnes, it was less of an empowering contest of female beauty, poise and style than it was a President Donald Trump-bashing, “nasty women”-type protest.

Starnes pointed to multiple loaded questions put forward by the panel of celebrity judges to the contestants that seemingly encouraged them to take a disapproving shot at the president on a number of issues, including climate change, alleged collusion with the Russians, Confederate Civil War monuments and Trump’s response to the riotous unrest in Charlottesville.

According to Informed Folks, one of those questions that presented an opportunity to bash the president was put forward to Miss Texas Margana Wood, who ultimately finished fourth in the annual beauty contest.

Wood was asked, “Last month a demonstration of neo-nazis, white supremacists, and the KKK, in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned violent, and a counter-protestor was killed. The President said there was shared blame with, quote, ‘very fine people’ on both sides. Where there? Tell me yes or no, and explain your answer.”

According to Us Magazine, Wood replied, “I think that the white supremacist issue, it was very obvious that it was a terrorist attack.”

“And I think that President Donald Trump should’ve made a statement earlier addressing the fact, and in making sure all Americans feel safe in this country,” she continued. “That is the number one issue right now.”

Of course, as Informed Folks pointed out, Wood must have missed that Trump did indeed make a strong statement calling out the perpetrators of violence, which would include the white supremacists and neo-nazis, on the very day the incident occurred, as well as several times after that, and noted that Wood didn’t even really answer the question as it had been posed to her.

But while that may have irked some Texans who felt Wood didn’t really represent them or their support for the president, some biographical information on the Miss America webpage devoted to the contestant likely has some demanding she step down and relinquish her crown.

Listed under the category of “Secret Wish or Dream,” the Corporate Communications major and graduate from the decidedly liberal University of Texas in Austin revealed, “I have secretly always wanted to live in another country.”

“After my year of service, I hope to use the scholarship I have earned to continue advancing my education,” she continued. “With that said, I would love to earn my Master’s abroad!”

This woman doesn’t even want to live in the country for which she was competing to represent to the entire world. That kind of attitude and lack of “pride” in one’s own country doesn’t sit particularly well with red-blooded Americans, especially those from Texas.

It will be interesting to see how the rest of her year representing the state of Texas goes for her now that she has revealed her uninformed opposition to the president, and her desire to live somewhere else other than the glorious nation we call home, the blessed United States of America.
