Donald Trump gets called out by Miss America contestant on stage

    When Miss West Virginia Madeline Collins was asked what she thinks is the most serious issue facing the nation, she responded:

    "Donald Trump is the biggest issue our country faces. Unfortunately he has caused a lot of division in our country."

    Since the onstage interview q&a was only allowed a 20 second answer without follow up, that's about all we heard. But still, she could have said anything and she went after Trump singularly.

    Also interesting to note that Trump no longer owns the Miss America pageant, and the new owners decided to cut the swimsuit segment of the competition for this onstage interview segment instead.

    So just kind of funny to think about the turn about here: if Trump didn't get elected, he would still be running this pageant (most likely) and (almost assuredly) the swimsuit segment would still be ongoing and therefore thoughts like this would have not been able to be heard. But since he became President, the swimsuits are gone and Trump is getting called out on the very stage he used to own. I think that's ironic?? Happy

    That's awesome of her to do. Took a ton of heart to stand on that specific stage and say those words. I'm sure Trump still has some sort of pull throughout the operation, so hopefully she doesn't get shunned for it.

    Everyone else outside of the pageant is going to look at her like a hero.

    Did take guts as she must have known something like 45% of the country was going to yell at their TV as soon as she said it. Lemme know if anyone here can find a video of her saying this. Did a youtube search and came up short.

    I can't find the video. Being a corporation like it is, I bet that they had it all pulled.
