Miss America Contestants Called Out Donald Trump Last Night

Last night during the question portion of the Miss America, a few contestants (including the pageant's winner, Miss North Dakota), took the opportunity to put Donald Trump to shame for his actions as president.

Then there was the pageant's winner, Cara Mund (Miss North Dakota), who slammed Trump for pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, all with a cheery smile as bright as the morning sun:

Donald Trump is a self-avowed lover of beauty pageants, and owned the Miss USA competition from 1996 to 2015. Hopefully he was watching last night.

If he was, he would have seen that at least in this one, small pocket of culture, America has already come a long way.
