I didn’t watch the Miss America pageant this weekend, but that because it’s the last place I’d expect to see a moment like this.
The question and answer period of these pageants are famously disastrous. But when Miss Alabama Meg McGuffin was asked what she thought was the reason Donald Trump has over 30 percent of the vote, she took the opportunity to slam the GOP candidate and former owner of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants for the damage he’s doing to the GOP.
She started by referring to The Donald as an “entertainer.”
I think Donald Trump is an entertainer. And I think he says what’s on a lot of people’s minds, but I think that the Republican Party should be absolutely terrified of all the attention that he is taking from incredible candidates like Jeb Bush and Chris Christie who could absolutely do the job of president of the United States. And if I were a Republican, I’d be absolutely terrified of that.

Some jeers could be heard from the audience in response to McGuffin’s comments, which shows that even beauty pageants aren’t immune from Trumpite venom.
