Donal Trump Controversy Surrounds Miss USA Pageant

    It's no secret that Donald Trump isn't the most liked guy right now. After some quite racial commons made specifically towards Hispanic immigrants. What Trump said (or generously implied), was that most immigrants were, "rapists" during a presidential candidate speech. Not only was everyone shocked when he said this, but a lot of his supporters very quickly stepped away from the whole situation. Cutting ties with Trump himself.

    What ties this situation to Miss USA Pageant (other than the obvious), is that NBC is the normal broadcast channel for the event. Since Trump went all racial on stage... NBC dropped the pageant in protest. I can only image what the women performing must feel like.

    Here's my thoughts on the subject. This (to me) is a blatant bought and paid for act. Trump is an absolutely brilliant business man. Everything he does, he does it with purpose. Standing in front of that many people, and on live tv, pronouncing his vulgar thoughts on Hispanics is NOT something a business man of his status does in any case (except for money, of course. Because you know, it's money). In this case, he is doing it for another presidential candidate. Who and why? I don't exactly know. I wish I did.

    I don't know how I never knew that Donald Trump owned the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants. And apparently he has since 1996.. It makes perfect sense though. Just perfect sense.

    What a terrible celebrity that guy is. Entertaining for sure. But he is also hateful that I would rather he just disappear from the limelight completely.

    Sucks for the contestants involved that the owner and head organizer of their event is a crazy person. And I'll beat they told everyone they knew how they were going to be on TV and to tune in... don't think many people get REELZ. Is that even a tv station, or just an online thing?

    Yea, it does suck for the contestants involved. They didn't do anything wrong yet are the ones being penalized for it.

    I understand why NBC dropped the pageant from their program, but it still seems really unfair to the women who were set to be on national television and then all of a sudden find themselves on REELZ. I have never heard of it before, but I guess it is a national cable channel.
