|Miss Texas Morgana Wood|
At last night’s Miss America Pageant, Miss Texas Margana Wood didn’t pause a second when answering a question from out People editor-in-chief Jess Cagle about President Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville debacle.
Cagle queried, “Last month a demonstration of neo-Nazi white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville Virginia turned violent and a counter protester was killed. The president said there was shared blame with quote ‘very fine people on both sides’. Were there? Tell me yes or no and explain.”
Wood’s answer was delivered deftly:
“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 have made a statement earlier addressing the fact, and in making sure all Americans feel safe in this country and that is the number one issue right now.”
In the end, Miss North Dakota Cara Mund took home the crown.
